  • Message from Principal San Martin

    Renton High Families:

    Some students are again sending around rumors and messages on social media about fights or other activity near school today.

    We of course always look into these rumors; but, we know that our school is safe. Some of these posts are the same ones we heard earlier this week, and are just being reposted, which of course were unfounded.

    We take all rumors seriously; and we investigate any concerns, whether they are made in person or on social media. Our school and district security staff, along with our School Resource Officer (a Renton Police Officer), make our campus safe for students and staff. Our teachers and support staff will also work with any student at school who are hearing rumors and feel some anxiety. We’ll work to keep students focused on learning.

    Please help share this message with your student to ensure they attend school today. We’ll also continue to share this message and keep our focus on education.

    As always, thank you for your continued work to keep our school and community a great place to live and learn.
