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.

Swim Lessons and Water Safety
It is essential for the safety of children that they know how to swim and be safe around water. Drowning is the second leading cause of death of children under 14. GVRD offers swim lessons at a Cunningham Pool in Vallejo. Call 648-4635 for information about swim lessons or go on the website. When we take 5th graders on the pool trip at the end of year only a couple students each year are able to pass the swim test to be in the deep end!
Noon Duty Supervisors Needed!
If you are interested, please call the school. We will help you with the application process. We also need substitute para educators to work in our special education classes.

Dear Parents and Guardians of Students at Glen Cove,
As principal of Glen Cove, I am extremely proud of our students, teachers and the educational opportunities offered at our school and throughout the Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD), but I write to you today to discuss the state of our current facilities necessary to support our new educational programs that prepare our students for college and careers in the 21st century.
VCUSD, like many Districts in California and the Bay Area, has a number of aging facilities. Many of the District’s schools were constructed in the 1940’s and 50’s and some are older than that – with the average age of VCUSD facilities being 60 years old. The District has continuously worked to maintain these facilities and keep them in good working condition. However, they have suffered from years of continuous, heavy use and declining maintenance funding.
In 2014, VCUSD conducted a needs assessment and engaged community and staff at each school site, including ours, to develop a comprehensive Facilities Master Plan (FMP) that identified a number of facilities and educational program needs, along with funding estimates to: repair deteriorating restrooms and leaky roofs, replace outdated electrical, heating and air conditioning systems, improve safety and security systems such as fencing, video surveillance, fire alarm and sprinkler systems, as well as updates to classrooms, science labs, and technology infrastructure. I invite you to review the entire FMP as well as the one specific to Glen Cove at: http://vcusd-ca.schoolloop.com/fmp2014.
In the coming weeks and months, we will be reviewing the needs for the district and our site in greater detail as part of a district-wide process directed towards solutions, one of which may be a school bond. I will provide periodic information updates as well as meeting dates/times where you, as parents, can help guide us in finding solutions that ensure our students our educated in facilities that support learning in the 21st century.
Thanks in advance for your help!
