Tutorial/ CCR/Check in
Individual Teacher/Stu appointments
PE Locker Belongings: Students: If you would like your PE clothes/personal belongings that were left in your PE locker last year, now is your chance to pick them up. All students are to email Mrs. Rivera at email@example.com with your name, short ID #, locker # (if known), and a description of the contents that were left in your locker. She will contact you with an appointment time to pick up your items at the Front Office.
NHS Hygiene Drive: Thank you to all who donated food items to the NHS Food Drive last week! If you would still like to drop off non-perishable food items, you may do so in the Faculty Lounge until Wednesday. This week (April 6-10) NHS is sponsoring a Hygiene Drive. All items will be going to the Orange County Rescue Mission. Their urgent needs are soap bars, bottles of shampoo, new underwear for kids (all sizes), new underwear for women (all sizes) toothpaste, razors, shaving cream, feminine hygiene products, laundry detergent, toilet paper. All items must be new/unused.
CAMPUS SAFETY MEASURES
Masks and Safety: Please remember that all students will be required to wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth. Temperature checks will take place at the start of the school day.
Lunch: A grab and go lunch will be offered to all students at the end of the school day. Students can pick up their lunch as they exit campus. TUSD also offers distance learning meals every Wednesday. We offer 7 lunches and 7 breakfasts to all distance learning students per week. Grab and Go on campus students receive 5 lunches and 7 breakfast in addition to the 2 on campus lunches they receive (totaling 7 breakfast and 7 lunch per student per week) *Drive up service WILL be conducted during spring break on 3/17 from 7am - 10am at Tustin High School (special 3 hours service). Parents must bring their distance learning meal card or proof their child is enrolled in distance learning. Proof can be a picture of your Aeries portal that shows your child is distance learning (DL).
Dismissal: Students will be required to exit campus at the end of the school day. This will allow our staff to clean our classrooms and campus in preparation for the next cohort of students. Students who need to connect with a teacher can schedule online meetings.
Textbook, library books and calculator Return Days: All students have the opportunity to return their Library items on Wednesdays through the end of the school year between the hours of 10:30am to 12:00pm at the THS parking lot.
We understand some of you have not been on campus to return these items. Therefore, we'd like to offer this time to return last year's items to avoid incurring fees later. SENIORS- TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY. THE END OF THE SCHOOL IS APPROACHING.
During this time, THS will be taking all precautions to keep staff, parents, and students safe by implementing social distancing. Therefore, we will be using the same drive through system we used for laptop collection and distribution. Simply drive into the front parking lot and follow the signs to the library drop off station. No need to get out of the car. We can take books from the trunk of your car or you can hand them to us from the window. However, if you are going to interact with us, we ask that you wear face masks upon entering school grounds.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT TIPS
Students and cameras during Distance Learning-Moving forward, students will need to ensure that their camera on the SURFACE device is working properly.
If a student has difficulty turning on his or her camera, he or she will need to test to see if it is working. To do this, the student will need to launch the ‘Camera’ application on the SURFACE device.
Once the camera app has been launched, the camera should turn on. If the camera will turn on, the student will need to ensure that he or she has the camera turned on when connecting to either Google Meet or Zoom with the video turned on.
When using Zoom, student should ensure that the ‘Start Video’ button is clicked while in a meeting. The ‘Start Video’ button is on the left; if it has a red line through it, the camera is turned off.
- When using Google Meet: If a student is connecting via Google Meet for the first time, he or she should use Chrome and click on the ‘Allow’ button when meet.google.com requests to use the camera and microphone. If a student has used Google Meet in the Chrome browser before and is unable to start the camera, he or she will need to ensure that the microphone and camera is not being blocked. This can be done by clicking on the camera icon in the upper right side of the location bar. The student will need to make sure to allow access to the microphone and camera.
If a student follows the steps above and the camera still will NOT work, the student will need to bring in the SURFACE device for further inspection or replacement.
Laptop Support: Tillers - You can find answers and instructions for frequently asked tech questions on the Tustin High website landing page. Your online experience will be much better if you do the following every day.
- Connect to your home wifi or hotspot when you start your computer in the morning.
- Sign in to your mytusd account from the student portal google page.
- Always use your school device to do classwork or access classes. It will always recognize the school system, your phone won't dependably work with our network.
- Turn your laptop off and charge it at night.
- Please call the THS Library if you have any questions.
UPDATE!! Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremonies: Due to new COVID protocols, Tustin High School is planning three smaller Commencement ceremonies on Tuesday, May 25th at 8:00am, 11:00am, and 2:00pm at Northrup Stadium.

Make sure guests will be able to attend the chosen time prior to submitting your response. Reservations are on a first come first served basis.

From the TUSD Superintendent:
It is an honor to serve as Superintendent of the Tustin Unified School District. Every day students are nurtured and challenged to prepare for a successful future. Our goal is that all students thrive now and in the future. Tustin Unified and the community have always made facilities planning a priority, and we still have significant facilities needs:
Most schools in Tustin are over 50 years old.
- Many permanent classrooms have never been renovated.
- Campuses require utility upgrades including electricity, water, gas, and sewer.
- School safety upgrades are needed.
- Assembly areas are insufficient for current enrollments.
I am proud that Tustin Unified is taking the initiative to actively address these challenges. Last year the District embarked on updating its Long-Range Facilities Master Plan with over 600 participants.
We are now sharing our process and needs with the community to gather further input. We are working diligently to engage with the community to share the significant needs for modernized classroom buildings that ensure high quality outcomes for all students. Great schools protect our investment, improve our quality of life, and protect property values.
Now we need to hear from you. What do YOU think? What are YOUR questions?"
Gregory A. Franklin, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Tustin Unified School District
