Principal's Message

Dear Spartan Families,

The 2020-2021 school year is right around the corner! The staff at Red Bluff High School has been working hard to prepare for the upcoming year and is dedicated to providing the best educational experience for all RBHS students and is making the safety of our students and staff our top priority. Please make sure to stay tuned to all new Spartan Speaks videos posted on our website for up to date information regarding COVID-19 and how it will be affecting our school year. We are remaining positive that we will be able to have every student, every day. 
When school resumes for students on August 13th, there will be some noticeable changes in administration. Don Ray will be joining the administrative staff and serve as the Athletic Director and Athletic Administrator and will also be overseeing attendance. Mr. Ray previously served as an Associate Principal at West Valley High School for 8 years and most recently served as Principal at North Cottonwood Elementary for the past 10 years. Mitzi LoPiccolo will also be joining the administrative team as an Associate Principal for the upcoming school year. Prior to coming to Red Bluff High School, Mrs. LoPiccolo worked for the Shasta Union High School District as a school psychologist for 13 years. Mrs. LoPiccolo will focus on the areas of special education and career technical education. We are very excited with the addition of these new administrators and what they will bring to our students, our school and our community. Ryan Vercruysse returns for his third year at Red Bluff High School. Mr. Vercruysse will continue to  work in the area of discipline and Restorative Justice. We are excited for these new changes and the positive effect they will have at RBHS.Our team will continue to work on doing things the “Spartan Way.” Components of the “Spartan Way” are communication, connection and commitment. Communication with all stakeholders will remain a top priority and as a school community we will continue to seek ways to increase our effectiveness.  Connecting through positive, professional relationships with students, parents and community organizations will continue to make our school and community stronger. A commitment from all stakeholders will continue to make Red Bluff High School a great place for kids!!! Go Spartans!
