Let's Be on Time to School

We want to remind all families that school starts at 8:00. Teachers open their classroom doors at 7:45, and students can arrive on campus as early as 7:30 for breakfast. Please help your student get to school on time. Please see the information below regarding parking lot etiquette so that we can get the school car line moving efficiently through our parking lot.

Parking Lot Etiquette

We encourage you to use the driveway to drop-off your students. Please drive up as far as you can and drop off in the yellow-zoned area. If you need to come in to the school, please park in the designated parking lot for visitors located at the east end of the school (the parking lot closest to The Trails Subdivision). Please use the visitors parking lot if you are dropping off ski equipment to place in the lockers. The staff parking lot is for all staff from 7:00am - 1:40pm. Parents may use the staff parking lot after 1:40pm if there are no parking spaces available in the parent parking. Remember to drive slowly in the school driveway! If we work together, we can move cars efficiently and safely through the parking lot.

Late to School

We have a few children who have been late to school repeatedly. Please remember that the State of California requires that children receive a number of predetermined minutes of instruction. Lateness creates a problem for the student and disrupts the classroom instruction.

Attendance Hotline

Please call our attendance hotline to report your child’s absence @ 760-934-7162. If your child’s absence is not reported, it is considered unexcused.

Ski and Snowboard Information

Ski and snowboard PE, Cross country ski PE and Mammoth Elementary School Ski and Snowboard teams had a great week last week. Please remember to send your child to the mountain with a snack in his/her pocket. For MMSA ski and snowboarders, buses will be departing from MES at approximately 12:55 pm and returning at approximately 4:00 pm. PE lessons are from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

If you choose to pick up your skier/rider from the mountain, please check out with a teacher. They are on the snow with clipboards. This is very important. The buses will not leave until ALL children are accounted for.
