Before and after school supervision is NOT a function of school personnel.

School Visitors & Student Release Procedures

All school visitors must sign-in at the front office and wear a name tag. We must insure each child’s and staff’s safety and limit classroom interruptions. Please do not enter the school without following these procedures. All students must remain on campus during school hours. Parents or Guardians who want their child released prior to the regular dismissal time must report to the office for an official release from the classroom.

Absence Reports & Requests for Homework

Please report all absences by calling the school office at (626) 815-6700, or by sending a note with your child when he/she returns to school. Please provide the date of the absence, your child’s name, classroom teacher and the reason for the absence. If you are requesting homework for your child, please call the office before 10:00 a.m. Request for homework made after 10:00 a.m. may not be honored. Homework will be available in the office after school for those requests made before 10:00 a.m.

student medication

In order to comply with Educational Code of the State of California, we must have on file a PHYSICIANS RECOMMENDATION FOR MEDICATION form with your physician’s signature and instructions before school staff may administer any kind of medication (including over the counter medication). Without proper authorization, the school will be unable to administer medication. Please contact the school office Health Clerk for a form. Students are not permitted to bring or take home medicine or self-administer any medication.

Items Left at home & messages for students

Students who forgot their lunch, lunch money, homework, band instrument, etc., will be allowed to report to the office to pick-up these items during recess breaks only. All items delivered to the office for student pick-up must be clearly marked with the student’s name and room number. Money should be left in an envelope. The office is not responsible for unmarked items left on the counter. If there is a need to leave a message for a child, please call your child’s teacher‘s voicemail or the office. We will provide the message to the teacher at recess or lunch time. We will not interrupt classroom instruction unless it is an emergency.





Independent study

If your child will be out of school for an extended amount of days due to an emergency or family obligation, Independent Study is available; (Not all absences qualify for Independent Study). Please contact the office for additional information (626) 815-6700.

perfect school attendance

At the end of the school year, students with perfect attendance receive a Perfect Attendance Certificate. Absences, early release, tardies, (please be aware that 3 or more tardies are considered a 1 day absence) will disqualify a student from receiving any recognition for perfect attendance. Please schedule all doctor appointments after school or when school is not in session. Independent Study absences will disqualify a student from receiving any recognition for perfect attendance.

bicycles & helmets

Only 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students may ride bikes to school as long as helmets are worn and bides are locked on the bike rack behind the Computer Lab. Bicycles will be confiscated and locked if a student isn’t wearing a helmet. Parents may pick-up the bicycle after school or the child may bring a helmet and the bicycle will be returned to the student.

emergency cards

Emergency cards are sent home at the beginning of the school year and are to be filled out by the parents. Local persons to call should be listed on the card. If your child becomes ill or injured at school, you will be called promptly. Therefore, it is extremely important that these cards are up-to-date. Two emergency phone numbers must be provided in accordance with AUSD school board policy. All visitors are required to check into the office prior to visiting classrooms. During a lockdown, no one may enter or leave campus until law enforcement deems the situation to be safe.

report cards

Reports will be sent home at the end of the second, third and fourth quarters. The first will consist of a 3-Way Goal-Setting Conference in November. This conference will include the teacher, parent and student together setting goals for the school year. We encourage good communication between the home and school. Parents are welcome to request a conference anytime during the school year.
