Safety is everyone’s concern and remains our priority. REMEMBER children are present and all are reminded to drive accordingly. Often children do not look in their eagerness to enter or exit a vehicle; as adults it is our responsibility to focus on this reality especially when arriving or leaving school. Most of us are always in a ‘HURRY’ and we recognize that all have schedules to keep, but children and their safety remains the PRIORITY. Thank you in advance for your attention to this ongoing concern and REMEMBER to SLOW DOWN, children are present!

Please remember that attendance is a priority, but not when your child is ill. Parents we ask that you check your child before you send them to school. Please look for obvious signs of illness such as: fever, coughing, “runny nose”, vomiting, diarrhea, or if your child complains of a sore throat, stomach ache or you notice that your child is lethargic; these symptoms could be an indication of the onset of a virus or an illness. PLEASE assist us in eliminating the “sharing” of unwanted viruses and illnesses by being observant and listening to your child. Remember to keep your child home when s/he is ill! Also please continue to remind your child to wash their hands often, this valuable habit benefits everyone. Thank you for helping us to keep our school healthy!

Hopefully everyone has updated and returned their child’s enrollment forms including any and all IMMUNIZATION updates. REMEMBER this information is required to keep our records and your child’s student file up to date and in compliance with the State of California.

KEEP HANDS CLEAN by washing with soap and water or by using alcohol based hand rubs. Sick people should clean their hands too!


DISPOSE OF USED TISSUE immediately into a trash or waste can. Always clean hands after using a tissue.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

KEEP SURFACES CLEAN by using household cleaners. Make sure to clean shared surfaces often such as faucets, light switches, and handles on doors and cabinets.

Please remember that the “horse shoe drive” is a FIRE LANE parents must remain in their vehicle and move forward as space allows.   Remember everyone is asked to move forward, forming a single line to permit as many vehicles in the “horse shoe drive” as feasible and to not create traffic issues on Mission Avenue.   If there is additional space between your vehicle and the one in front of your vehicle teachers will ask you to please move forward to allow others to enter the “horse shoe”.  We ask that you follow these instructions even if your child is standing in a line that is not adjacent to your vehicle; the teachers will walk your child to your car.  The area for pick-up is between the main sidewalk (entrance to school office) and the sidewalk west of the brown storage shed. 

Remember if you have a child being dismissed at 3:00 and one at 3:15 then for your convenience please pick up both between 3:15 and 3:30; only once through the “horse shoe”.   Thank you in advance for your attention and compliance with this request.

A new security measure for the main entrance of the school has been installed. You will notice a new device located to the left of the main entrance door, this is equipped with a camera and a bell. This door will be unlocked from 8:00 – 8:45. At 8:45 the door will close and lock. If you arrive after 8:45 you must escort your child to the entrance and “ring” the bell to gain entrance into the school. The camera will provide us the visibility and opportunity to view the individual(s) prior to releasing the electronic lock. The electronic lock will open again at the end of the day at 3:00 p.m. or 12:30 p.m. on our scheduled early days for dismissal. This new procedure will begin on Wednesday, February 27.  Thank you in advance for your patience with this new procedure, a procedure designed to provide additional safety measures for our students and school.

“Hand washing is one of the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We are also reminding students to COVER their COUGH and SNEEZES with tissues or coughing/ sneezing into the crook of their elbow/sleeve.  Please assist us by reminding your own child/ren to continue this practice at home.  Please remember to set a good example by doing this yourself to help children develop the habit.

 

Thank you for helping us to keep our school healthy!
