Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year!  The staff at Red Bluff High School is very excited for the upcoming year which promises to be filled with an abundance of energy and enthusiasm!  It is our goal to make every student feel welcomed, connected and an important part of the Spartan family. Teachers, administrators and support staff are committed to providing our students with high-quality educational programs, building positive working relationships with students, families and community members; all while striving to meet the unique needs of each student.  
When school resumes for students on August 15th, there will be some noticeable changes in administration. I feel honored to be returning to Red Bluff High School as the principal. Having worked previously in the district from 1990-2013, I have a deep understanding of the importance of Red Bluff High School in the community, the traditions that are valued and the many outstanding programs that are offered to our students.   Mr. Ryan Vercruysse will be a new member of the administrative team. Ryan will bring an abundance of passion and energy to the Spartan campus. His experience will be an asset to students, parents and staff. Mrs. Wendy Drury will return for her 2nd year as an associate principal. Wendy is motivated to support all students to connect and feel ownership of their experience at Red Bluff High School.  Wendy makes Red Bluff High School a great place for students and staff! 
A main goal for the upcoming school year is building a positive and healthy school culture by doing things the “Spartan Way”. In doing so, we will focus on areas that will directly affect our environment.  Components of the “Spartan Way” are communication, connection and commitment. Communicating with stakeholders is a top priority and as a school we will always be seeking ways to increase our effectiveness.  Connecting and building positive, professional relationships with students, parents and community organizations will make our school and community stronger. A commitment from everyone (students, parents and staff) to these areas will once again make Red Bluff High School the envy of the North State!!!  Go Spartans!!
