Parent Access to Campus- With middle school comes some natural
anxieties. We have worked hard with WEB to create many
opportunities for making the transition from elementary to middle
exciting and welcoming. Parents, it is best to begin the process of
allowing independence to flourish and perhaps saying goodbye in
the car or at the gate; having your parent walk you on campus is not
necessarily the most popular choice these days. If your student is
finding some difficulty and you need that time to assist them, we will
be asking that parents sign into the office's Raptor System to
receive a campus pass. Parents will need their driver's license to
Pick Up/Drop Off & Parking Lots – THANK YOU FOR YOUR
PATIENCE! To help expedite the drop off, please have your student
sitting on the passenger side of the car with back pack next to them
for a quick and easy drop off. 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, it will get easier!
ID Cards: Students received their temporary ID Cards today.
Students need to have these with them during the school day.
Once school photos are taken we will issue their permanent
Lunches- important to remind your child to throw out their uneaten
lunches and not keep them in their lockers overnight! With the heat
we are experiencing, ants will likely be on the move and looking for a meal.
“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
GIRLS VOLLEYBALL Tryouts:
Thursday 8/22 All Grade 7/8 only 330-5 pm GYM

Once teams are selected practices for Girls Volleyball will be
Tuesdays and Thursdays 330-500 pm. Games for 6th graders will
be on Mondays at the Teen Center and 7/8th grade games on
Wednesdays. More information will come after the fall schedule has
Tryouts are TBD
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.
Reaching new heights and making connections at our Welcome Back
Social last Friday night!
Thank you to the Boys & Girls Club for making these messages
