Important Info for the 1st Day of School

Here are a few important things to know on the 1st day of school:

  • The drop off lane will be closed to cars--open to walking traffic only until a paved sidewalk connecting to the street sidewalk is installed. This should happen by the end of the month. For now, please plan extra time to park and walk in. 
  • The only entrance to school will be to the right of the main office building. The MUR/Cafeteria will be open but there is no path from the MUR to the main school now. You must walk on the street around the corner on Del Monte Ave. 
  • Doors will open at 8:15am and school starts at 8:20am. This is a big change from the 15 minutes we had to settle our kids in years past so please plan accordingly. The teachers are meeting today to discuss plans about how and when doors will open and what dismissal will look like. Parents should be flexible as the procedure may change after the first few days of school as we all get to know our new campus. 
  • Construction crews are installing a better fence around the current construction projects including the 5th grade wing that is not complete yet. The 5th grade classes will be temporarily located in the following rooms:
      • Ms. Stone: G-111
      • Ms. Rivera: G-112
      • Ms. Hillman: F-115
      • Ms. Kreisman: F-116
  • Play structures are not installed yet but there is a much larger black-top space available than the kids had last year. There will be lots of fun alternatives to a play structure like: playground balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, tether ball poles and more. The PTA supplied some of the play equipment this year. 
We hope you find this information helpful and informative. We'd like to thank the many parents who are helping the teachers today. We'll take some pictures of the classrooms and post them later tonight on this website and on our facebook page.

There will be a PTA membership table near the main entrance with coffee and treats for parents on the 1st day. Please stop by and say hi! 

See you in the morning!
