Rockin' the Retreat
Thank you to our dedicated faculty for planning, organizing, overseeing, sharing, teaching, leading, and mentoring our entire student body at the retreat! You're the best and you make Ambassador a school worth attending! What a great way to start off the new school year.
Official Schedules Available
Students,your official class schedule will be available outside the Main Office starting at 7:15am for pick up on Monday. Official schedules have locker numbers, official room numbers, & the most recent changes that might have been made prior to the start of school. Schedules will be available all week in the Main Office.
Schedule changes can still be made within the first few weeks of school. If you are in need of a schedule change or have any questions regarding your schedule, Mr. Silva, our Academic Dean is the one to ask. Schedule Change Request Forms can also be found in the Main Office.
Keeping Time with the NEW Bell Schedule
School starts at 7:45am - Classes will eventually start promptly at 7:45, so please aim to arrive at school by 7:35 to 7:40am to make it to your first classes on time! Our main office student study area is open to students starting around 7:15am, and our front desk is open at 7:30am.
School ends at 3:00pm - Our Main Office closes at 4:30pm. SoCalROC is not on campus on Fridays. Please note that on Fridays the entire campus needs to be cleared out by 4:30pm in order for the campus gates to be locked & secured.
Friday late start is at 9:21am- Any students arriving before 9:00am will need to use the lunch area as the Main Office is reserved for our staff meetings.
Personalized Bell Schedules are available upon request. Please email Mrs. Chinn in the front office & she will get one to you within a day.
Every student will be receiving their locker number this week, printed on their official class schedule. Lockers are assigned by class & seniority with our upperclassmen (Seniors & Juniors) and 8th graders getting the more preferred lockers. Sorry Freshmen & 6th graders as you'll have to work your way up... literally! Some things to note about lockers:
Please purchase your own lock! Everything you store in an unlocked locker you store at your own risk. The school is not held accountable for anything that gets taken. Remember that we share a campus with SoCal ROC and not every person on campus is part of Ambassador.
Only use the locker that is assigned to you.
If you have any issues with your locker please see Mrs. Chinn in the Main Office.
Feel free to decorate your locker & make it your own. Lockers are reassigned every year however, so please do not use any adhesives that cannot be removed.
DO NOT store food in your locker overnight. The school has a terrible ant problem and they would love to feast on your leftovers!
Driving On Campus New Lane Open
Morning Drop-Off Below is the map for morning drop-off. Cars are now allowed to drive through the center street that goes in front of Building A and between buildings B & C to drop off in front of the lunch area. Please drive carefully and watch for pedestrians!
Student Parking Permits Students driving to school, please park in the Student Parking lot. You will need to apply for a parking permit this week. Permit applications can be found in the Main Office at the front desk. Just ask Mrs. Chinn.
Guests on Campus If you need to park & come into our Main Office, you are allowed to park in the Guest Parking area. If you plan on visiting other areas of campus other than the Main Office, you will need to sign in at the front desk & obtain a guest pass.
