Extended Care Families- PLEASE READ

Effective immediately, do not send your child with any food containing peanuts, or nuts. We have a recently enrolled student with a SEVERE PEANUT ALLERGY. As always, please make sure your child washes their hands upon arrival to Extended Care or Preschool.

Thank you for your cooperation with this sensitive matter.

How to help your child TRANSITION!

This week's article offers simple ways you can help your child move from an event to event throughout the day with easier transitions. Predictability helps alleviate stress for a child. For ideas to reduce challenging behaviors during transitions, please read the article below. These methods are currently practiced and can be seen in your child's classroom.


In light of recent world events, please check to ensure you have provided an emergency clothing and food bag in your child's class at Crown or Silver Strand Preschool, as well as Extended Care at Crown. Please review this letter regarding required emergency items and please check your child's cubby or ask the teacher to make sure your child is prepared.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Library Visit

Friday, Jan. 17th, 12-1pm

640 Orange Avenue

Coronado, CA

Friday January 17th is a non-student day in Coronado Unified. We are inviting our preschool friends to an optional "meet-up" day at Coronado Library. Come meet the librarian who currently reads to Crown Preschoolers each month, checkout the display of winter artwork provided by our students, and enjoy a story-time! Each family will also be encouraged to check out a book so hopefully all attending have a library card. If you need an application, ask your child's teacher.

Friendly reminder: Parents are required to stay with their child during the library "meet-up".

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Library Books!

Our preschool program hopes each family participates and signs up for an opportunity to bring in LIBRARY books. We strongly encourage families to visit the Coronado or any local library with their child, have them select the books to bring to school, and share these books with their peers for the week. It is not required to participate but if you would like to do so, please send only send in LIBRARY books!

Late Pickup

In the new year, our program will begin auditing check-out times. Please note:

  • Crown Preschool and Extended Care charges $1/min for late pick-ups.
  • Silver Strand and all State funded families are not charged late fees but will be given an Infraction Letter that tracks the amount of late pick-ups. 5 or more late pick-ups is a reason to lose your State funded spot.

Please Sign Your Child In Everyday

Just a friendly reminder to make sure you sign your child into school everyday at drop off and again at pick up. If anyone else is assisting you with drop off/pickup, please remind them of our process. If anyone other than the parents are picking up, its always best to carry a photo identification.

Don't Forget!

  • Please label all outer clothing as cool mornings turn into hot days
  • On that note, please dress your children appropriately for the hot weather
  • Make sure to check backpacks each night for important communication or classroom work
  • Let us know if your child will need a lunch 24 hours ahead of time
  • Fill out an absence request form every time your child is out.
  • Please label everything…backpacks, water bottles, lunch boxes and any containers inside, and clothing.
  • Specify if there are separate meals (breakfast, snack, lunch…please label which is which).
  • Please have your child wash their hands upon arrival in the classrooms.
