Teachers will let students know what they need to bring for class once school starts. The most important supplies are their Chromebook and charging cord.
Students are expected to bring their Chromebooks and chargers to school everyday. Your personal device cannot connect to the district network which renders it unusable. If you have not picked up your device, come by the Library tomorrow morning before school and see Mr Smith.
Please consider dropping your student off a block or two from Leigh to avoid the traffic. It is heaviest ten minutes before and after school, so the other option to avoid traffic is to get here earlier and pick up a little later. Please be sure you are aware of the areas for drop off and that your student(s) are ready to exit the car immediately to keep the flow of traffic moving. Please go to the Drop Off and Parking webpage to learn about student parking as well as procedures and options for drop off and pick up.
If you need a parking permit please see Ms. Ramirez in the Main Office before school, during lunch, during an off period, or after school.  The permits are free, but you must have one if you plan on parking your car in the student parking lot. You need a parking permit for each car you drive to school, and you cannot share the permits either. 
We have three large bike cages located near the back of the campus. Students must walk their bikes at all times while on campus. The cages are not locked so it is critical that student lock their bikes.
Drinking fountains and water bottle filling stations are available at all time. Encourage your student to bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated.
If a student needs a locker, they can fill out this google form or use the QR code below to request a locker. An email with the Locker number and combination will be sent to them within 48 Hrs from submission. If you have any questions regarding lockers, please contact Ms. Mora [email protected] or go to the main office.

Tutorial is a 35-minute period that is part of the instructional day; students are required to sign into tutorial by scanning their Student ID card. During tutorial, students are to attend one of their current classes for support. Students must treat tutorial with the same respect as class time, including respecting all school/classroom rules and staying on task. All students are required to attend tutorial.
The purpose of tutorial is for students to receive help from teachers or peer tutors, get makeup work after or before an absence, utilize the College and Career Center, see case managers, and work on schoolwork. Some examples of schoolwork include homework, studying, reviewing, reading, collaborative work, quiz/test retakes, and make-up work.
Students with a D or F in any class will be held to the tutorial schedule below for intervention, and to get extra help in the class(es) with low grades. Students will be tracked by Counselors and/or Administrators to ensure they are attending. Assignment to these tutorials will be based on the grades at the end of each 6 week grading period.

Leigh’s Tutorial Norms:
  1. Attend a current teacher’s tutorial every day.
    • Except in special cases, students must stay in one teacher’s tutorial for the entire time. Use the restroom during passing periods.
    • If passing between classes, use the Leigh Tutorial Pass.
    • The teacher’s classroom rules and expectations apply to tutorial.
  2. Always be on time and sign in.
  3. Maintain a learning environment that allows all students to work productively.
  4. Work on school-related tasks.
    • Electronics are allowed with teacher permission only.

Please note that the Library is closed during tutorial and no passes will be issued or accepted.
Students in violation of Tutorial Norms are subject to consequences at the discretion of the teacher and/or Assistant Principal without prior warning. 
It is critical to student learning and the classroom and campus environments that students be in class on time. Therefore, students are expected to be in class prior to the tardy bell. After two tardies, students may be assigned detention or tardy recovery, and placed on the school restriction list. For chronic tardiness, students may be assigned additional detentions and/or Friday school, and may need to meet with the Assistant Principal to discuss any barriers to being on time. Assistant Principals strive to support students being on time and to assist them with any barriers where appropriate. We ask that parents/guardians support this expectation at home.
Please note:
  • Students with detention and/or Friday School are placed on a Restriction List until the detention(s) are served. Students on this list are restricted from attending school events, including - but not limited to - school dances. Students who continue to earn detention due to tardiness may be subject to other disciplinary action.
  • Afternoon SVCTE students must serve their detention(s) in the morning before school, by arrangement with an Assistant Principal.
