Principal's Corner

Welcome Letter


Welcome Back Righetti Students and Parents,


I am excited to be starting my first year as Principal at Righetti. It is an honor to work here and I am very lucky to be at a school with so many dedicated and committed educators. The last year and a half has been a challenge, but I am hopeful that this year will be better. I ask that you are patient as the school and its staff navigate new guidelines put forth by the state and county related to COVID-19. Current  California Dept. of Public Health education guidelines require that all students wear masks indoors while on campus regardless of their vaccination status. Our goal is to get students back learning “in person” in the safest possible manner. If guidance changes, then the district and school will communicate the changes.


I would like to welcome our incoming Class of 2025 to the Warrior Family. I want to invite all our 9th graders to attend our Freshman Orientation on Wednesday, August 4th in the Greek Theater. You will receive your temporary student ID’s, tour the campus and hear important information regarding life at Righetti High School. 


The school calendar and bell schedules are included in the newsletter. I suggest that you keep all our bell schedules in a handy place throughout the year. Student class schedules will be ready to access via the Aeries Portal prior to the school year starting. Be on the lookout for a ParentSquare notice whey they are ready. Additionally, student and parent activities are added to the school master calendar, which is located on our website ( In addition, please sign up for ParentSquare if you have not already. This is the main way that the school communicates with parents and students.


Righetti High School’s motto is “Greatness Starts Here!” Our staff is committed to helping each of our students find their Greatness. This can come in many forms and the more a student is involved in activities here at school, the better they tend to perform academically. Clubs, sports, performing arts, and student government are some ways to get more engaged in school. We also look forward to building a partnership with our parents and have multiple ways for you to get involved in the school. These opportunities will be shared throughout the year and I encourage you to join in where and when possible. 


With Warrior Pride,


Ted Lyon, Jr., Principal
