Welcome to Granite Hills High School

Updates Notice: We are currently in the process of updating materials for the 2016-2017 year. Please be patient as we update.

Senior Class Photos
Class of 2017, be certain to take your senior portrait photos with Olson Photography. You should have received information on that this summer. If you do not take a photo with Olson, you will not appear in the senior section of the yearbook, and if you do not take your photo by September 1, your photo will probably be at the end of the senior section, instead of being in the alphabetized section. Seniors, if you have not received information from Olson Photography, please contact them at 760.961.9000 and they will schedule a photography appointment for you.

Get an ASB Card ASAP!
Please buy an ASB ASAP this year. It will save you a lot of money on admissions and discounts to school events. ASB cards are $45 and they will be on sale at the student store.

Athletics Physical Exams on August 4th from 3-6 PM
You must pass a physical exam if you are going to play on one of our sports teams. The cost of the physical exam is $20, cash only. The parent or guardian of the student athlete must be present. If you need more information, please contact our athletic director, Mr. Rincon, at 760.961.2290, ext. 2406, or e-mail him at daniel_rincon@avusd.org

Cougar Welcome from the Family Center
Our Family Center wants to help you get the year off to a great start! We will be open special hours from 7 AM to noon from July 25 through August 5 in order to help our Cougar families. We will help you to complete applications for free/reduced lunch, and there will be information on how to be a volunteer. Our Cougar Closet will be open to help needy families get some clothing and school supplies for their children. You will also be able to sign up for checking student grades online through the Aeries program. Our Family Center has computers for parents and guardians to use, and there will also be free lemonade and cookies. We are always looking for volunteers and donations.

Freshman Orientation
Freshman orientation will be held on August 2nd in the Performing Arts Center. If your last name begins with A-L, please attend from 9 AM until 11 AM. If your last name begins with M-Z,  please attend from noon until 2 PM. You will be able to pick up your Chromebook, take your yearbook photo, get your school ID, purchase an ASB card ($45, cash only), pick up your class schedule, purchase your PE clothes ($20, cash only), and take a campus tour.

First Day Procedures for Students
Please report to the main quad, where lists will be posted. Find your name on the list, and you will see where your first period class is located. Report to that class, and your teacher will have your locator card. We will not be able to make schedule changes for the first week as the focus will be to enroll new students in their classes.

Yearbook Information for 2016-2017.

Class of 2017, be certain to take your senior portrait photos with Olson Photography. You will receive information on that this summer.

Tentatively, pricing will be $70 in August, $75 in September and October, $80 in November and December, and $85 as of January 1. To get the best price, purchase your book immediately when they go on sale in August. You will be able to purchase the book online through Jostens, or at the ASB store. Books will be delivered approximately May 10.
