Back To School Night
Thursday, August 16th is Back to School Night. We hope you can join us at 5:45 p.m. for a brief PTA meeting in the auditorium followed by classroom visits from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Thursday night will be a great opportunity to meet your child's teacher, see the classroom, and learn all about classroom plans and expectations. Back to School Night is an evening for parents/guardians only; there will be no childcare provided. Please call our school office at 619-668-5880 if you have any questions.
Campus Access for Parents
Beginning this Friday, August 17th, adults waiting for students at dismissal time will be asked to wait in the Tiger Zone area on the front lawn near the office. We hope this area is a relaxing and pleasant community space for all our families to wait for their children when the bell rings. We appreciate your focus on this new parent access to campus policy as it is intended to help us have a safe environment for students at the end of the school day. After 8:30 a.m. the front gate is the only access to campus for the duration of the school day. We ask that all visitors to campus check in and enter through the front office during the day. Visitors must sign in through the Ident-A-Kid computer system and ID is required.

La Mesa Spring Valley Schools has a comprehensive student wellness policy which outlines what, how, and who can serve and provide food for our students. The policy is designed to with the benefit of all students in mind. The complete wellness policy can be viewed on our District website (District Wellness Policy) . Sometimes families would like to bring snacks, food items etc. to school to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays. We ask that any food items you bring be in compliance with the District's wellness policy. Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, sugary beverages, etc. are not included in the items that are allowed to be distributed at school. There are many other ways you can help your child celebrate special occasions, and all our classroom teachers can help provide you with suggestions as well as directions on times and dates. The best way to ensure that food items are in compliance is to speak to your child's teacher in advance about any items brought to school for children.
