Attention Garces Families
Dear Garces Families,
We wanted to update you with the information we received regarding the police investigation which took place on our campus today, Thursday, September 3, 2015. We worked very closely with law enforcement and the Diocese throughout the entire day. We were in communication with our students, teachers and staff and our campus was never on lock-down. The investigation has been completed and we are assured by law enforcement that it was not a viable threat and at no time were the students in danger. Thank you for trusting us with your students and believing their safety is always of utmost importance to us.

The Garces Administration Team

UPDATE: We want to clarify any miscommunication by others.  While student matters are confidential, the individuals who we have confirmed were involved in today’s incident will not be at school tomorrow, Friday, September 4, 2015. We are working closely with the Diocese of Fresno’s Office of Education and the Bakersfield Police Department.  Every safety protocol has been followed and we will continue to be pro-active if the safety of our campus is ever in question.

A New Garces Tradition Begins!
Last night was our first annual Varsity Football Jersey Presentation Night and it was very inspiring as it represented months of hard work, commitment, and dedication.   Families were invited to attend as each Varsity team member was presented his jersey to wear for the first game of the season.  The coaches spoke about each player's contribution to the team and the position he will play.  Good luck Rams!
