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.

Black History Night Thursday, Feb. 26, 6:30 PM
Please join us Thursday night February 26th at 6:30PM for our annual Black History Night. We have some wonderful activities planned for the evening including class projects, student performances, art, music and food. Please mark your calendars for a great evening.
Parent Requests for Records Must Be Done Online
To be in compliance with education code, all parent requests for records or copies of documents from cumulative record files must be made online to the district through the district website. This requirement is to start on Monday. This includes report cards, attendance records, shot records, birth certificates and any other documents.
Please Don’t Bring Cupcakes to School
It almost seems like a daily event that parents are bringing cupcakes for students in their child’s class. The intention is nice but we are working on having students eat more healthy foods. It would be better to bring fruit. Please be sure your child’s teacher knows you are bringing something for the class and be mindful that we can’t stop instruction for celebrations.
Healthy Food at Lunch -- Lunch Serving Size
We are seeing students often bringing large bags of chips, hot Cheetos, Takis, etc. for lunch. When this happens students share the food. This is an effective way to share germs. We would encourage students to bring healthier food to school. If they are bringing chips, or Takis, please have them bring one serving in a baggie.
Monday, March 2, Dr. Seuss Birthday and Read Across America -- Pajama Day for Students.
Monday is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Each year as a way to celebrate we have a pajama day with a focus on reading all day. It is a great day to pick up a Dr. Seuss book and read it with your children. Many of us learned to read with One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. There are great messages in some of the higher level books such as The Butter Battle Book, Sneetches, and Yertle the Turtle.

ADA For Last Week 93%
We had 135 students absent last week giving us an ADA of 93%. We had 40 truancies. There were 43 students tardy again last week. Which is lower than most weeks although there were only 4 days. If your child is sick be sure they are well before having them return to school. We have had a number of students with fevers starting the day. Please remind your children to cough into a sleeve and wash their hands with soap often before eating, not to put fingers in mouths, and avoid sharing food.
Spiritwear on Fridays
For school spirit, students are to wear spiritwear T-shirts or our school colors, blue and grey, on Fridays.
In order to register your child at school you must bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, and proof that you reside within our school boundaries. Before the start of the school year, come to the office any time between 8:00 and 3:00. After the start of the year, please avoid coming between 8:45 and 9:30 and 3:30-4:00 as these are very busy times for the office.
