Family Service Program (FSP) 2021 – 2022
Registration for FSP is now closed.
Please contact Mrs. De Jesus in the Front Office regarding late registration
or if you have questions about your sign-ups.
We are excited to have parents and guardians participate in our Family Service Program (FSP)! FSP is a way for families to be involved in school events by volunteering their time. Without volunteers, many of our school events would not be possible.
Questions? Contact the FSP Coordinator at email@example.com
FSP Requirements for Each Family (Not Per Student):
Families are required to register to volunteer at school events* by August 27, 2021; it is solely their responsibility to pursue (FSP) volunteer opportunities. There is an "Opt-Out of FSP" option for families who wish to decline participation in FSP and agree to pay $500 by September 15. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details about opting out.
1) Step 1 or "FSP S1":
Work at one "large" event (i.e., Open House, CYO Track Meet Crew, Service Day Driver, Golf Tournament, Crab Feed Crew, Mother's Day Brunch Crew, All Day Sporting Event, etc.)
2) Step 2 or "FSP S2":
Work at one other event (i.e., Dance, Award Ceremony, Sporting Event, Alumni Event, Project Santa, Snack Shack, etc.)
3) Step 3 or "FSP S3":
Attend ONE mandatory grade level meeting per year. (Note: You do not register online for your grade level meeting; credit is achieved by attending.)
- 9th Grade: Teen Realities: Understanding Kids in a Changing World: October 5, 6:30 pm, Virtual
- 10th Grade: Parenting 10th Graders: September 27, 6:30 pm, Virtual
- 11th Grade: College Counseling: October 4, 7 pm, Virtual

*There are a few "FSP - Special" opportunities that allow families to complete their FSP requirements for the year: a Crab Feed Committee member, a representative of the Parent Association, a non-paid athletic coach, hosting an international student, or being part of the Admissions Liaison Team. Volunteers in these positions "go above and beyond," and we are very grateful for their expertise and help! Inform the FSP Coordinator by the 1st day of school if you qualify for or are interested in any "FSP-Special'' opportunities.
It's Easy to Register/Sign-up For FSP Events:
Salesian organizes its events and volunteer opportunities through www.SignUp.com; however, you cannot register directly on their website - you must register below through the "event groups."
1) Click on the below "event group" links to view events.
2) Click on an event for information about it – the times, what's expected, etc.
3) Sign up online!
Please make every effort to work at the event you registered for. Volunteers who do not show up leave the event short-handed, resulting in more work for the other volunteers. The FSP coordinator will re-assign volunteers who fail to work at an event they registered for to ensure that families complete their FSP requirements for the 2021-2022 school year.

Thank you for supporting your student's school events.
Contact the Front Office if your student is absent or late to school:
Mrs. Erica De Jesus, Attendance Clerk, (510) 234-4433 ext. 1000
For school records and emergency purposes, please inform the Front Office as soon as possible about changes in address, phone numbers, email addresses, or emergency contacts.
Parent/Guardian Responsibility for Reporting Absences
A parent/guardian must call the Front Office each time the student is absent. Calls should be made between 7:45 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. When students return to school after being absent, they must bring a note with their full name, signed by their parent/guardian, the reason for the absence, and the specific dates of absences. A medical form from the student’s doctor attesting to treatment may also suffice when appropriate. Without this note, the student may not be allowed into the class or may be required to serve detention until the note is produced. Notes are required for both absences and tardiness but do not necessarily excuse the absences or tardiness. The Assistant Principal may ask for further clarification regarding student absenteeism.
Unexcused absences, such as truancy, will result in an in-school suspension from the Assistant Principal or Principal.
Daily attendance in each class is required. Missing class does not relieve students of work covered in those classes. Ordinarily, assignments and homework posted on Schoology are expected to be completed on time. Students absent from any class fifteen times during a semester for any reason are ordinarily ineligible for semester credit. Each case will be reviewed by the Assistant Principal, in consultation with the Principal, who will make the final decision relative to semester credit. Excessive Absence letters will be sent to parents regularly from the Attendance Clerk.
A student participating in any co-curricular event must be in school for one-half of all classes to participate in any co-curricular event that day. Lack of attendance on a Friday means forfeiting participation in that weekend’s co-curricular activities.
Students who have perfect attendance are recognized at the end of their Senior year. Perfect attendance means students are never late or absent from a class (except for a school activity).
Students are expected to be in their assigned seats in their first-period classroom when the bell to start the day rings. Any student who does not meet this expectation is considered tardy. Students tardy to school or to any class during the day must obtain an admit slip from the attendance office.
- Notes from parents/guardians regarding tardiness on any given day will clear the tardy for that quarter; however, the student will be required to serve detention on that day.
- For the 2nd – 5th tardies per quarter, after-school detention for each tardy will be assigned (2:55 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.).
- Failure to attend given detention without being excused by the Assistant Principal or Principal will be viewed as defiance, which will result in further disciplinary action up to and including an in-school suspension.
- If a student is tardy more than five times in a quarter, a meeting between the student’s parents/guardians and the Assistant Principal or Principal will be held, and the student will serve a Saturday detention (“Saturday School”).
School Passes: Medical/Tardy/Early Dismissal
Medical appointments should be made outside of school hours. Teachers whose classes will be missed should be notified ahead of time. If students leave early for any reason, a parent/guardian must sign the student out before the student leaves. It is unacceptable to send Uber or Lyft or another transport service to pick up a student during the school day since they must be signed out by an adult guardian when they leave campus.
The Finance Department works with the President and the Board of Directors in managing the long-term financial stability of the School. Our staff is committed to supporting the achievement of the School's goals and is fully aligned with its strategic and academic priorities.

All student athletes must have a physical examination performed within twelve (12) months prior to participation in any sport at Salesian College Preparatory. This physical examination must be documented on a Salesian health form available in the Salesian main office, or available by clicking the link below, and then submitted to the Attendance Clerk in the main office.
The best time to obtain a physical examination is during the summer months so that the student-athlete is allowed to participate in sports beginning in the fall of the upcoming school year.
For questions about obtaining a pre-participation physical examination, please contact Athletics Director Chad Nightingale at (510) 234-3344 ext. 1015 or email@example.com.

The Parent Association (PA) assists the administration, faculty, staff and students in fulfilling the vision and philosophy of Salesian College Preparatory. Among its goals are the improvement of communication and dialogue. The PA promotes a values-based education in a safe and nurturing environment, and organizes various fundraising events. It seeks to promote community outreach activities that represent Salesian spirit and ideals.
The PA meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Salesian cafeteria, September through May (no December meeting). At the April PA meeting, new PA Executive Officers ("the Board") are voted on for the upcoming school year. Parents/Guardians who want to run for any of the Board positions (PA President, Vice President, or Secretary/Treasurer) are encouraged to do so and to make their intentions known to the Principal by the PA's March meeting.

To meet the needs of our commuting and working families, Salesian College Preparatory offers round-trip transportation to students from the VALLEJO-HERCULES-PINOLE areas, BERKELEY - EL CERRITO BART route, and the NORTH CONCORD BART route. The school-subsidized round-trip service is offered at an affordable rate to our current and incoming students. The service includes van transportation before and after school and must be purchased for the entire school year.

While colleges increasingly emphasize the value of “experiential” or “hands-on” learning within their own communities, high school students are discovering real benefits in setting aside time during their high school careers for internships or other out-of-classroom experiences. In fact, they are finding that internships provide amazing opportunities to gain significant work experience while exploring long-term career options.
An internship helps students understand how professional organizations function in the real world. While learning and working, interns have the opportunity to refine career goals. In fact, a summer internship can serve as a “trial period” to test ideas about professions and industries without making any long-term commitments.
