Statement from Superintendent Michelle King About Sylmar High School

May 12, 2016

We appreciate the show of unity by students of Sylmar High School, the Sylmar Biotech Health Academy and the Sylmar Math/Science/Technology Magnet and their enthusiasm in expressing support for their schools. However, this should not overshadow the importance of instruction and student learning, and the District does not approve of activities that take students out of the classroom.

Safety remains the District’s top priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation.
