TK and Kindergarten families - please see the flyer below!
Bonsall Unified School District has supplied two COVID test kits per student for our site. If you would like your child to retrieve the two kits, please come to the office to pick up your kits. These COVID tests are provided to you as a courtesy. Testing is not required by our district.
Although we are excited to have your child attend school everyday, when your child is sick, we do ask you to keep him or her at home. Specifically, if your child has tested positive for COVID, he or she should remain at home for five (5) days from the onset of symptoms or positive COVID test (if asymptomatic). Your child may return on Day 6, unless he or she remains sick. Masking upon return to school is not required by the District.
We wish you great health as we know the cold and flu season approaches, and encourage you to place special attention to taking practical steps to boost your student’s immune system by providing nutritious food, proper amounts of sleep, and good doses of exercise.
Counseling Corner with Ms. Newman
The Month of October is Anti Bullying Month. Bullying is something that is not tolerated at Bonsall Elementary School. The definition of bullying is a person or a group consistently seeking to harm or intimidate another person or group. Every student at Bonsall Elementary has the right to feel safe and happy on campus. This month's Push in class lessons will focus on this and what to do in these situations.
Here are some resources when it comes to bullying
Have a great week!

Important updates from the CDE
The California Department of Education passed legislation this past July that all school districts must remind parents and legal guardians of all students in the Bonsall Unified School District of their responsibilities for keeping firearms out of the hands of children as required by California law. Please take a moment to review the memo below.
