  • Bruin Families,

    Happy New Year 2022. Like many of you, there are parts of 2021 we are ready to put in the past and improve upon in 2022. The shared experiences of 2021 have made us stronger, more resilient and more compassionate for others. Our mission continues to be to make Ballou the best learning community possible for all of our students and their families.

    With PRIDE,

     Mrs.Kusche, Principal

    Some Behavior Reminders:

    No Door Dash or food deliveries to students.

    No blankets.

    Remind your student to respect others by keeping their hands to themselves, thinking before they post on social media, and to never use racial or homophobic slurs.

    Be nice. In fact, be kinder than necessary. We all (staff, students, and families) are doing the best we can.

    Masks must be worn over nose and mouth. When walking alone, outside; it is ok to take a mask break.

    After school athletic events begin at 3pm.Students must leave campus at 1:55 and may return with parent permission. We are not responsible for students while off campus.

    DROP OFF/PICK UP: PLEASE SLOW DOWN and on the look out for students on these dark mornings.

    Earlier Dismissal: Please call or send a note in the morning for an early dismissal. Then we will have your student ready to go. No need to get out of your car when your student returns to campus. They can ring the front buzzer to re-enter. If you would like your student dismissed before 1:55pm, please call BEFORE 1:45pm. We are unable to guarantee late messages will get to your student.

    Our Counselors: Contact Mrs. Klinger (Last Names A-K) and Mr. Cooksley (Last Names L-Z) and Prevention Intervention Specialist, Mr. Vaca-Truijillo (Mondays). Hazel Health (Telehealth) Services (No Cost) also available upon request to the counselors.


    First Semester ends January 31st.  It's never too late to ask a teacher for academic help!  Stay after school and get those grades up!
