Note from the Principal

Good evening McBride Families,

Our first day of class is Wednesday, August 31.  The entire staff at McBride is excited to see our returning students as well as welcome our wonderful incoming freshman class.  Below are a few announcements and calendar of dates for the coming month. 

Office Open for Business

Please know the office is open to support families with updating emergency cards, submitting necessary paperwork etc. 

Acceptable Use and iPad Agreements

During Schedule Verification Days students have been given Acceptable Use and iPad agreements to be signed by both students and their parent/guardian.  We will begin collecting these materials on the first day of school.  Students must have these signed in order to receive an iPad and have access to the internet on campus.  Students who did not receive the packet at Schedule Verification Days, can obtain their agreements when they pick-up their schedule on the first day.

Opening Day

School begins Wednesday, August 31.  Students meet all of their teachers following an All Period Minimum Day Schedule.  Starting Thursday, September 1, we will follow our regular block schedule and begin normal dismissal at 3:40.  All students will be required to obtain an official schedule from the distribution stations adjacent to the main gate.  Students who bring bikes and skateboards need to lock them in our bike rack on the north end of campus.  Students cannot carry skateboards from class to class regardless of their size.  Families are responsible for providing bike and board locks.  The school does not provide those.

PE Uniforms

Students who are taking PE will be provided uniform ordering information on the first day of school.  If you already have McBride PE clothes from last year, they can be reused this year.  The PE Coaches will provide students information on what to wear until uniforms arrive. 

Back to School Night

McBride will host its back to school night earlier than the district.  It will take place on Thursday, September 15.  Food will be for sale beginning at 5:00 PM. The opening meeting will start at 6:00 PM with classroom visits to follow.  Representatives from various parent groups and booster clubs will be present to help provide families a variety of ways to get involved at McBride.  More details will follow in the near future.

Senior Parent Night

All seniors and their parent/guardians must attend a mandatory Senior Information Night on Wednesday, September 7.  We will be reviewing senior activities, reviewing the senior calendar, distributing and reviewing senior contracts and other required paperwork, updating college and financial aid information, and other pertinent information for seniors.  Please be sure to mark your calendars.  The evening will begin at 7:00 PM

Website

Please check our website often.  We regularly post key information  and updates.  This information stream and can often help answer a number of questions and alleviate concerns.

 

I hope each of you enjoys the last few days of summer.  As we open the new school year please know it is my honor and privilege to serve as your principal.

 

Go Wolfpack.

Now is the time for interested 11th and 12th grade students to register for the CSULB Ethnic Studies class during the fall semester.  This class is offered free to Long Beach Unified 11th and 12th grade students.  The class sessions will be held at each of the comprehensive high schools:  Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan, Poly and Wilson. All classes will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.  Classes will begin on Sept. 10 and continue until Dec. 17, 2016.   Attendance is extremely important in this college class.   If you are unable to attend more than 90 percent of the class sessions, you might reconsider registering for this class, as your grade will be negatively affected by absences.  If there is enough interest to offer the courses in the afternoon on Saturday or during the week, we will consider offering the courses at those alternative times.  However, we must have enough student interest in order to offer these additional time options.

 

Enrollment is limited to 70 students per school.  If there are more than 70 students interested per site, students will be randomly selected to participate, with 12th graders given priority.  Students who are not selected will be offered a space at another site where space is available or placed on a waiting list for the spring semester.

 

Additional classes will be available for students that have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class/es and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses.  These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.

 

If you are interested in being considered for the spring semester CSULB Ethnic Studies class please complete the registration form.

 

The deadline to complete the registration form is Wednesday, Aug 31.

 

Please note that all notifications for the class will be sent through email.  Please check your email periodically.  Also check your spam/junk email folder, in case it is directed to that folder.

 

If you have any questions about the program, please see the attached Frequently Asked Questions sheet.  Additional details are provided in this video.  If you need further assistance, please contact Ms.Ortega at cortega@lbschools.net.

Attendance Policies

Attendance Matters

Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance.  If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.

1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school.  Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.

2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.

3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.

4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work. 

5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days.  Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.

Three Pathways- One Vision

Three Pathways- One Vision 

McBride High School has three pathways, McBride Engineering, McBride Health Medical and McBride Criminal Justice and Investigation. All three pathways engage students around their interests, find relevant connections to real world activities, and gauge student learning through collaborative, hands-on projects. All three pathways prepare students for the demands of college and the workforce. With workplace learning experiences in their 12th grade year, all three pathways empower and inspire students to make their own path and determine their own future.
 
A Unique Experience 
 
McBride High School looks and feels different than any other high school you may have seen. With four career labs and other specialized spaces students will demonstrate what they have learned through projects, team collaboration and connections with industry partners. Students will collaborate in open areas designed for each pathway. Teachers will also work as a team to meet the needs of individual students and create a coherent educational experience. Addressing subjects at each grade level and centered on a career-themed course, students will see the natural connections between the theme of their pathway and English, History, Science and Math.
 
Challenging Academics
 
All three McBride pathways are focused on completing the UC and CSU Entrance Requirements (a-g) with a sequence of courses that are aligned to college expectations. Each pathway expects to create options for students to earn college credits while in high school.
