February Forum: Here’s What You Missed
February 8, 2019
Sunset moving in? The girls basketball team’s home court advantage up in the air? Students packed room P2, the art classroom, in order to get answers to those questions and more this Friday’s Forum meeting. Here’s the rundown on discussion topics and subsequent responses:
What’s going to happen with Sunset taking over the P-Quad?
According to Principal Adam Camacho, the P-Quad will house Sunset High School next year. Fences will be put in to separate the two schools.
Parking questions were addressed too. Camacho shared that select spots in the Northwest lot on campus (known as the “Bottom Lot”) will be segmented off for Sunset staff and Sunset student parking. There will be a new parking lot on campus near the soon to be finished Arts and Humanities building.
Girls basketball losing their home CIF game to Making a Choice Night for incoming freshmen?
This topic was addressed by Athletic Director Scott Jordan who stated his distress about such a conflict but is hoping to solve the issue by moving the girls CIF game to Wednesday instead of Tuesday so they are able to keep their home court advantage.

James Hrzina, psychology teacher, will be creating another Mental Health Awareness Day sometime in May.
Hrzina explained that the NAMI club on campus will be holding a meeting the next late start Wednesday at lunch to brainstorm ideas for a Mental Health Awareness Day. The idea of combining such a day with a wellness campaign was also suggested by a student.
