REMINDERS...

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


WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:

REASONS FOR KEEPING YOUR CHILD HOME:

~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.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 679-2639.

Homework can also be requested on this phone message and will be ready after school in the office.

EQUITY OF TIME TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN WAIVER
The California Department of Education approved a request from PUSD to waive Education Code Section 37202(a) allowing Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students to attend school for a half day program.  The waiver, # 14-3-2016-W-06, was approved at the July 13, 2016 meeting and is in effect from June 30, 2016 to June 30, 2017.  The rationale behind this request rests on several points:

1.   TK is intended to be the first year of a two year Kindergarten experience.  PUSD believes it is in the best interest of TK students to attend school within the required number of instructional minutes for Kindergarten, which is 180 minutes, of a half day.

2.     TK students participate in an intensive language arts and math curricula aligned to the California State Standards (2010) in ELA and Math.  They also experience instruction in other core areas during this time, as well as support for behavioral, social and emotional development.  This structure ensures that our TK students are fully prepared to meet the academic rigor in the second year of the Kindergarten sequence.

3.     TK teachers in PUSD are fully credentialed educators who provide intervention and enrichment support to other primary classrooms in the afternoon portion of their daily schedule.  This structure collectively reduces class size for our primary students in grades K-2, and ensures high quality teachers are working with students needing additional supports or enrichment.
