Attendance

Regular attendance by students is vital to learning, and it impacts the amount of funding that local schools receive.  Schools statewide lose millions of dollars each year due to student absenteeism.  Parents whose children are absent or tardy should be sure to send a note to school including the reason for the absence.  Schools are required by the state to track this information.

State education code says that a student absent from school without a valid excuse on three occasions or tardy or absent for more than any 30-minute period in a school day on three occasions in one school year is considered to be truant.  At that point, parents receive letters from the school district notifying them of their obligation to make certain their children attend school.  These letters state that parents who fail to meet this obligation may be subject to prosecution.  Proper tracking of absences is dependent upon parental cooperation and can help parents to avoid receiving such notices.

One of the best ways to ensure student success is to encourage and support good attendance, but when tardiness or an absence is unavoidable, parents should remember to keep in close touch with their children’s school.

MS. HERON-ARCHIE - Principal's Message

Welcome back from your well deserved summer break! ! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! The beginning of the year is a great opportunity to begin fresh, set new goals and strive towards greatness.  As summer vacation draws to an end, this letter has been prepared to help answer some of the questions you might have prior to the first day of school.  Please look forward to our school newsletter, Point for Parents, Back to School edition that will be published on August 18, 2015.

 

Classes will commence on Tuesday, August 18th, with all students reporting to class at 8:15 a.m. All students will receive student and parent handbooks during the first week of school.  They will include student rules, a school calendar, and district policies.

 

Congratulations to all our students that completed our first Extended Learning Opportunity Summer (ELOS) Program, as part of our CORE WAIVER GRANT as a Rewards School.  The students worked on English Language Arts and participated in valuable learning experiences, including a field trip to the Long Beach Aquarium or Redondo Beach Sea Lab.  Thank you to our summer staff: Mrs. Leonard, Mrs. Guzman, Ms. Evans, Mrs. Herrera, Ms. Remley, Ms. Peller, Mrs. Villicana, Mr. Aviles de la Merced and Ms. Ayala!

 

This year, we will not have our SRLDP program for our preschool students, but we are pleased to offer Expansion Transitional Kinder (ETK) for students turning five between Dec.2, 2015 and June 30, 2016.  This is a full day program and we are enrolling students now.  Students born between Dec. 2nd and March 31st have priority. 

 

With these last few weeks of summer, please do not forget to complete your lunch application online at https://www.applyforlunch.com/Home/PickDistrict. This year, we are no longer a provision one school and you will not receive free lunch if you do not apply.  Please make sure to complete your application before school begins. I look forward to seeing all of you and continuing our work together to make our school the best it can be for our students.
