  • Early Pick-Up Policy effective 2017-2018 school year:

    If a student is picked up at any time before the end of the school day, he/she must be picked up by the parent/guardian listed in the office computer. The ONLY exception to this rule is that a parent/guardian can send in a note (with their signature) stating who will be picking up their child on that specific date.

    Per Mrs. Rabasco's news blast on 11/5/17:

    IMPORTANT: If you want to pick up your child before the end of the school day, it must be BEFORE 2:00pm (M,W,Th,F) or 12:45pm (Tuesdays). Anyone arriving after this time will need to wait until classes are dismissed to take your child. The end of the day is a very busy time in the classroom as students pack up to go home and some classes end their day in PE, which makes it difficult to get messages to them. Thank you for understanding.

     If you have any questions about this new policy, please feel free to call the office.

  • Understanding your child's Student Score Report

    Parents and guardians of students who were in grades 3 - 8 during the 2015-2016 school year should have received a Student Score Report in the mail. The Student Score Report details results from the Smarter Balanced Assessments taken during Spring 2016. The California Department of Education has published a Test Score Guide and video that help explain information in the report. Parents and guardians who did not receive a report should contact the school office.
