Common Core Standards


The state of California has changed how public schools are funded.  The Local Control Funding Formula (LFCC) aims to streamline the funding process.  To ensure strong accountability each school district in the state of California will write a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  An essential part of the LCAP is parent and community feedback and input.

Please check out the following links for additional information:

Dismissal 3:00 PM


Parents must pick up children by 3:00 PM.   Please help keep our children safe by picking them up from school on time.  Children are not allowed to wait on the playground, up near the school sign, or anywhere near the street. Children must wait inside the parking area in front of the school office.  We know the drive through line is long but, parking on the streets near the school and walking onto campus to meet your child is much faster. This also saves gas and allows us to get some exercise.

Medicine in the Office

If your child has medicine in the office make sure to pick it up on the last day of school.  Only a parent may pick up the medicine.  The medicine cannot be sent home with the child.

Important Notice Regarding End of the Year Charging Procedure and Negative Lunch Account Balances

Beginning June 1st there will be no extending of credit for Breakfast or Lunch through the last day of school.  Your child will need to bring cash, check or use the credit balance on their lunch account. This will hopefully cut down on the amount of money owed at the end of the school year.  Also, if your student has an outstanding balance please send in your payment before Friday, May 29th to ensure that proper credit is applied to your students account.  When you receive your parent handbook at the beginning of the year, be sure to sign up with Parent Portal with your email address.  You can then receive notifications of your child’s balance twice a week.  Also available is the online payment system for tracking the lunch balances and/or for adding funds to the lunch account.  If you have any questions please contact  the Child Nutrition Services Department at: 408-223-4500.

News from Ms. Robin


The Thanksgiving break is perfect opportunity to take your children in  
for routine physical exams, dental visits, vision check –ups or  
immunization boosters. Healthy children learn better!  Call to make an  
appointment now so you can use the time off from school to take your  
child in for these vital appointments.    Don't forget to have fun  
with your child - take a walk  - ride a bike - throw a ball around -  
play a game.  Take a few moments each day to let your child know they  
are special.

News from Ms. Robin

News from Ms. Robin

Got Tdap?

Parents of 6th graders - you will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old.  Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May.  If you haven’t done so already, check your child’s immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination. Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to your child’s school they attend NOW so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT.

News from Ms. Robin

In an effort to keep our records up to day, please notify Ms. Robin, by email, if your child has had any medical history changes that affect the school day.

New Registration

Please bring the following items:

-Birth Certificate or Passport
