Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2016 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List. After March 1, 2016, at 8:00 AM, go to the District Website and select "TK Interest Wait List" to put your child's name on the list. The assigned TK school site will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer,  of an opening in TK. The parent will then be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.

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.
A student's absence should be reported on the
School Absence Hotline: 858-487-2059.

An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom.
The spread of illness and disease through classrooms or the school
can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home
during the acute stage of an illness.

It is PUSD Guidelines that children remain home until they are
24 hours fever free (without the use of fever-reducing medications),
vomit free and diarrhea free.

With advance notice, homework can be requested via email
from your child's teacher; this work is generally available
for pick-up in the school office at the end of the school day.

 

CAUTION:  Please drive slowly in the parking lot at all times.  And please pull up completely to the curb before letting your students out. All students should exit from the right side of the car only.
