How do I register my child for Piñon High School?

Piñon High School is part of the Piñon Unified School District. Simply stop by our district office and we will help walk you through the paperwork process. Don’t forget to bring your child’s birth certificate, immunization record, and social security number. For more information, visit our district’s registration page.

How can I stay informed about my child’s schedule, classes, and extracurricular events?

We know how difficult it can be to stay on top of your child’s schoolwork and other activities. This website was designed with that in mind. You will find links to all the important information you need right on our home page. Don’t forget to visit our calendar and athletics calendar often for important dates, sporting events, school holidays, and more.

What is the dress code for Piñon High School?

We expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. Students may not wear any clothing that distracts from the learning experience. Specifically, we do not allow:

  • Shirts that expose the midriff or that are cut below the collarbone
  • Shorts that do not pass the “fingertip-length” test
  • Clothing that promotes drug- or gang-related activity
  • Open-toed shoes
  • Spikes, chains, or similar jewelry
  • Nose rings or other body piercings (other than in the ear)

We reserve the right to determine whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school. For more details regarding our dress code, please review the Student Handbook, located in the Quick Links section of our home page.

What should I do if my child needs to miss school?

Regular attendance is one of the most important factors in your child’s success in school. When students are absent, they miss valuable instruction that is impossible to replace. And encouraging and requiring your child to attend school every day sets a good example for life beyond high school. However, we do understand that sometimes circumstances, such as illness or a family emergency (death or serious illness in the family), may cause a student to be absent.

If your child will be absent from school, please call the school office by 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. If your child does not arrive at school, we need to know that your child is safe with you. We require all make-up work to be returned to school within two days following an absence.
