    Info & Update Notices

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    In order to allow for a safe pick up, plese note the following procedures:

    Kinder: Wait at designated spot as determined by your child's respective teacher.

    1st and 2nd grade: Wait on the blacktop (do not enter hallways) for your child to be dismissed by teacher. You can sit under the shade structure if you arrive early. Please stay behind the cones.

    3rd-5th: Meet students under the lunch shade structure. We want to keep the area clear in front of the 2-Story in order to assure a clear/safe walking path. 

    Thank you for your support with this!

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Please know that class lists are now posted in the window on the office building. You can access the office area by walking up the little hill area behind the office building and walking around the side of the building.

    If your child does not appear on a class list, it is most likely due to the fact that you need to prove residency and or you need to hand in proof of immunizations. You will need to know your child's student ID, as that is how the lists are posted. The student ID's were on the letter you received from the district this summer (for 1st-5th). If your child is in Kindergarten then the office gave you an ID number when you registered.  If you cannot find it, please email Cindy or Nelly.  chowell@scusd.net     nrodriguez@scusd.net

    The office will be closed Monday morning due to our District Welcome Back Staff Meetings. We will open at 1:00pm.

    The construction is going well AND there areas they will continue  working on over the next few months (bike rack, landscaping, fencing for example).

    The school is still surrounded by fencing due to construction. We respectfully request that you DO NOT WALK onto the site. There are still areas that are being finished and it is not safe for students and is disruptive to the workers. Currently the front gate is almost complete. Eventually there will be a fence between the Recreation Center and the field. There will be an open gate (before and after school) so that you can still walk from the Recreation Center to the school. We still encourage parents to use that parking lot as well. While the new parking lot is bigger, it will hold mostly staff with some guest spaces. 

    The two-story is complete and we have been moving in this past week. Today staff is on site moving our Extended Day into their portable buildings. 

     On the first day of school we will hold a parent PTA/Principal Coffee and we will give tours between 9:00am-9:30am. We will NOT have Morning Walk the first day. You will walk your child to the classroom, meet the teacher, and then gather in the Multipurpose Room (Cafeteria) afterwards for coffee, some words from PTA, myself and then tours. We will need to be careful not to disturb teachers so we won't go into actual classrooms but you will see the interior building.

    Due to fencing around the school, we will now be a "closed campus." This means that by 8:45am every day we will ask parents to leave the premises unless they are staying to volunteer and we will lock the gates.

    On the 1st day of school we will try out "drop off" in our new parking lot. We've requested law enforcement to assist us. We will NOT have pick up in the parking lot. The lot will still be "closed" after school, as we have determined that it is still the safest and most practical to come onto campus to pick up students. We will open gates at 2:00pm for parents to start coming on to campus. We ask that you sit at the shaded lunch tables near the MP room to wait for your children. Kindergarten parents--you will be directed as to where best to pick up your kids (teachers will let you know day 1.). 

    Please know that staff is very excited to welcome back our students, parents and new families. We ask for your understanding and patience as we navigate the new parking lot, building, etc. and all of the changes they entail. We will be trying out processes (drop off for example) and adjusting as we see how things go. 

    Thank you to our PTA who is working really hard to coordinate activities/events for the year. Please join the PTA Circle and become a member so that you don't miss out on their wonderful events. Thank you to our staff who have been working late into the night preparing for our Chameleons to return! It is hard to believe we will be starting year 4!!

    We nurture the development of the whole child who is then inspired to continually expand all aspects of his/her being (mind, body, heart) and is empowered to improve the world for others. We build habits of mind and ways of being that are caring, curious, reflective and visionary.
