The opening of school is always a highly anticipated day, full of excitement and some apprehension of perhaps a new campus, new classrooms, new teachers and new peers. There is much that goes into the opening of a school day and it requires the dedication of many people to great things happen, including you as parents. Parents, thank you for your support in preparing our students for their first day of school.
Parking Lots – Please follow the direction of campus supervisors and leave extra time until routines are in place. Remember, it is recommended to turn right into Colina from Hillcrest Drive if you are using the internal drop off/pick up traffic pattern. Alternate drop off/pick up locations will be along Rancho Road; please do not use any lot at Ascension, we always want to be good neighbors. Reminder that TOPD motor enforcement will be out and enforcing speed, cellphones, seatbelts, as well as monitoring parking and no parking areas. Please be safe and courteous out there.
Schedules and Student Store: Schedules can be picked up from the counseling center and the Student Store will be open from 8:30-9:00 and again at lunch. Any schedules not picked up will be made available on the first day of school Wednesday 8/23 in Cougar Court beginning at 7:45 am.
“A” period will start promptly at 7:55 am with period 1 beginning at 9:00 am. Students with a traditional 9:00 am start time can come onto campus at 8:30 am otherwise they will be directed to the Boys & Girls Club for supervision. Likewise, students who dismiss at 2:19 pm will need to be picked up by 2:45 pm or they too will be directed to the Boys & Girls Club for supervision.
Reminder, electronic devices/cellphones must be turned off and in student during the school day. Phones must be stored in a locker and may not be on their person during the school day. Students may use their cell phones at the blue benches before school and at lunch; Colina assumes no liability for lost or stolen cell phones. (Please encourage your students to keep locker combinations secret!)

The Boys Basketball League is a 7th/8th grade league, however Colina does allow 6th graders to tryout with the 7th graders. In order to fulfill a space on the 7th grade team, a 6th grade student has to be clearly more advanced than the lowest 7th grade player.
