All visitors to our campus must check in through the Administration Office at the front of the school.


Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning.
A student's absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: 858-613-0693.
The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:


Illness during the night
Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
Development of a rash on face and/or body
Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them
Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

Homework can also be requested on this phone message, please indicate when you will be picking it up.

Introducing SchooLicious!: an innovative and healthy way to raise funds for school wellness. Formerly known as Healthy Dining School Rewards, SchooLicious! partners with local restaurants that offer healthy choices to raise money to support school health and fitness at Poway Unified School District elementary schools.

 Here’s how the on-going fundraiser works: Participating restaurants, such as The Kebab Shop, California Pizza Kitchen, Bongiorno’s and El Pollo Loco pay a fee to be in the program. All of that money goes back to the SchooLicious! program, benefiting kids at Poway elementary schools, including our school. For more information: www.Schoolicious.org

 Simply download the FREE SchooLicious! app and dine at any of the participating restaurants. The SchooLicious! app uses beacon technology to recognize when users are at a participating restaurant. After your meal, respond to the app prompt asking if you chose a healthy entrée.

Use the app anytime you dine at participating restaurants. Support the restaurants supporting healthy kids!
