Back to School Important Information

All Back to School Information will be sent to you via email. In order to complete your forms, you are going to need your child's classroom assignment. That information will be posted outside of the school office on Friday, August 22 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. After these hours the list will be posted inside the school office. Also, you can make your First Day of School easier by dropping off your child's school supplies that evening.  Please label the bag/box with your child's name, teacher and classroom number so that volunteers can correctly deliver your items.  

NOTE: There is NO Welcome Back Check-in this year! All forms and payments can be done online.


Kindergarten Orientation: Tuesday, August 26, 1:00 - 2:00 pm
This event is for Kindergarten students and their parents only. They will go to their child's classroom to meet his/her teacher and to become familiar with the classroom.

First Day of School: Wednesday, August 27 (8:25 am Grades 1-5; 8:40 am Kindergarten)
Meet your neighbors (if you haven't already) and walk or bike to school if possible - the first day is always really full, and parking is extremely limited. Grades 1-5 line up on the blacktop by class; Kindergarten lines up outside of their specific classrooms.

Back to School Night: Wednesday, September 17, 7:00 - 8:00 pm
This evening is for parents only. Meet your child's teacher and fellow classroom parents to learn about expectations and goals for the school year.
* For parents without access to a computer, the District will make computers available in the school office on the first day of school for you to complete the forms.

We hope you appreciate the convenience of our new online process.  We hope to include classroom assignments as part of our online process next school year.  Again, thank you to our parent volunteers for moving us online this year!

“No Food” Birthday Guidelines


1) No candy, soda or juice in class. This means no candy, soda or juice offered in class by teachers, by other students, or by parents.

2) Limiting sweet treats to once a month. We encourage educationally-appropriate celebrations of all kinds. If they include food, we would like these events to feature healthy food choices. Therefore, a maximum of only one item at one celebration a month may be in a desert/sugary category (fresh fruit is a great alternative!). Please remember that any foods containing trans fats can not be served or sold on any school campus per Ed Code.

3) If a child has a serious allergy to a food, that food should not be served in that student’s class that year. Children with potentially life-threatening allergies cannot be endangered by, or excluded from, shared classroom activities

Celebration Ideas
Instead of bringing food to celebrate your child’s special day, please consider non-food items such as a personalized gift to the classroom or school in the student’s name. Please see the letter from Principal Bob Sherman and a flyer with additional information.
