Principal's Message

Principal Dave Flynn
Dear “Mustang” Families –
                                                    
Welcome, Mustangs, to the 2019-2020 school year.  The staff members at Yorba Linda High School are excited to start a new school year with 1820 students.  Highlights for our “New Year” are:
 
Seven new members to the Mustang family
Kylie Chen – Math
Marissa Hoffman – World Languages – Spanish
Conner Hipwell – Science
John Domen – Social Science
Samantha Ling – Special Ed
Willis Cole – Math
Alex Quintero – Secretary/Receptionist
 
Our new staff come with new ideas and lots of energy to add to the excitement and traditions at YLHS.
 
This year, Mr. Okamoto, Assistant Principal, and his team will introduce, “The Mustang Way” to our students.  The program will involve students and staff in promoting, Respect – Responsibility – Integrity, as part of our focus on students’ academics, co-curricular programs and wellness.  Watch for more information and student recognition activities as the year progresses.
 
As with every year, the district and site staff are very intentional and focused on providing strong academic and co-curricular programs, along with a renewed emphasis on student safety and wellness.  With the support from our district, YLHS has a full time wellness counselor in addition to our three college-career counselors, a full time OC Sheriff school site resource officer and our campus supervisors.  Facilities and Maintenance have installed cameras, new lighting, a visitors’ check-in station, as well as maintaining a clean and secure campus.
 
We hope to see many of our community members at the wide variety of athletic events, fine and performing arts programs and parent information nights.
 
Follow us on ylhs.org and GO MUSTANGS!
