We are excited to welcome you to the new school year!
Our vision for this year is A.S. CARES, with CARES being an acronym for Connect, Advocate, Resource, Empower and Sustain. By doing these five things, and so much more, with heart, we will show students through our actions that A.S. is here for them and truly cares about them. We will be reaching out to students in new and direct ways to ensure we are including and listening to all students, because students are the reason we are all here.
We are ready to get to work! We look forward to collaborating with you and making this a meaningful and memorable year. Thank you for all that you do for A.S. and we wish you your best year yet!

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Because these situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation. If one should occur, immediately choose the best way to protect your life. Very quickly, make your best determination of what is occurring and which of the options below will provide the greatest degree of security.
Run and escape, if possible.
Hide if escape is not possible.
Fight, as an absolute last resort.

5451 Kearny Villa Rd, San Diego
Submitted by: Baylee Fuller, SDSU Children’s Center Associate Teacher
“An eatery for happy hour at the rooftop patio which boasts excellent views of La Jolla Cove. Its casual and upscale at once, with drink specials and appetizers at half-off making it a huge value. Ask for table #33. If you want to splurge on a date night. Table #111 in the main dining area, right on the corner of the restaurant gives you the best view of the Cove. I recommend the Filet Mignon Carpet Bagger Style, which is a 10oz steak with 5 deep fried Bluepoint oysters and topped with Bearnaise sauce. A side of Crab Fried Rice or Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese completes the meal.” — Rico Salgado
