Message from Principal (Jan. 31, 2018)

Dear El Rancho Families,
As we walk around El Rancho High School, I wanted to share what we are observing and experiencing within the campus. Students are in class, focused, and fully participating in learning activities. Teachers are providing the highest level of engagement and demonstrating care to all students. I assure you that we, in conjunction with the district's administration, School Police, and Sheriff's Department personnel, are taking every measure necessary for your child's safety. We, at ERHS, are committed to "Ensuring High Levels of Success for All."
