Escondido’s high schools return to class

Students return to campus Tuesday at Escondido High School. They were welcomed back by a gauntlet of Cougar cheerleaders.

Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) celebrated the first day of the fall semester on Tuesday, August 10, welcoming back all students for full-time in person instruction. 

More than 6,000 students returned to Escondido, Orange Glen, San Pasqual, and Valley High Schools, and Del Lago Academy. Escondido Adult School also began classes on Tuesday.

“Today represented a smooth start to the new school year,” said Supt. Anne Staffieri. “We’re thrilled to see students together again and know that this successful first day was a tribute to all the hard work and preparation by our staff and administration teams.”

Dr. Staffieri added,  “Together with our students and families, we’re looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.”
