Attendance Rules Summary
It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance. Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family. If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant. Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.
Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend. This is not legal. Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important. We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

International Potluck Dinner; 6:30, Thursday, January 22
Tomorrow, January 22nd, we are having an International Potluck Dinner. The idea is to have great international foods and socialize as a community. If you are able to come, bring a dish of international origin (main course or salad for 8 or so...some dessert items are good too.) We will set up the food at 6:15 and start eating at 6:30. It is best if we can keep to this schedule otherwise food gets cold or people are done eating when more food arrives. Please bring serving utensils for your dish. The PTA will provide eating utensils, napkins, and water/beverages. We will set up Google Earth and other activities.
Walking School Bus -- Parent Volunteers Needed
Each day there are too many cars in our parking lot, particularly on Wednesdays. Solano County has a program through Safe Routes to School called a walking school “bus.” The idea is for groups of students to walk to and from school with an adult. There are routes to follow. Students join in as the group goes by. Students are safe, they get exercise, and the parents get exercise (no need for the gym). Also our parking lot congestion is reduced. What we need are parent volunteers. The walking school bus is a great idea. We can only do this project with parent volunteers. Please call the school if you will help. We very much want to do this project!
Vallejo Symphony Concert for the Animals -- Sunday January 25 at 3:00 at the Hogan Auditorium They will play the following pieces:
Peachjar on Glen Cove Website for Flyers
On the Glen Cove website there is a box on the front page top left hand corner that is called Peachjar. Click on Peachjar and you will see flyers for local events that have been cleared through the district. This will save paper and should be more convenient for most parents rather than digging through the backpack on Wednesdays. We will continue to send out our weekly Newsletter on paper and publish it on the website.

This is a fund-raiser for the American Heart Association that includes school activities for students to develop fitness by jumping rope. On January 29th we will have a whole school jump rope event. During the next weeks we will be having jump rope activities outside at recess.
