Encinal Junior & Senior High School
WELCOME BACK MEMO!!! (Updated 8/29)
We are so excited to start the 15-16 school year at Encinal Junior & Senior High School. Below is some very important information you will need for a successful Back to School beginning. You can also get much of this information in Ms. Zazo’s Sunday night phone calls and on the School Loop Calendar to the left.
Registration: All enrolled students should have gotten a letter in the mail re: registration. Please follow all the instructions on the registration letter. If you have any questions, please call Caroline Ardourel at 510-748-4023, ext., 3107. If you did not get a letter, that means we do not have your correct address on file at school. Because of this you will need to show proof of address. Again, please call Carline Ardourel to confirm your address and for further instructions.
