Intra and Inter District Transfers

We are now accepting Intra-district transfers for the 2020-2021 school year. If your child has been attending Carlin C. Coppin on an Intra-district transfer agreement you will receive a letter in the mail to renew your Intra-district transfer. Please complete the form and return it to the school office by February 12, 2020. All current Intra and Inter district transfer requests are only good for one school year and must renewed annually. Inter-district transfers will be accepted starting February 3rd. If you have any questions please contact the school office or go to: for more info.

Got Rocks?

Did you know that there are many students and a teacher at Coppin that have an interest in rocks and geology? Our own Mr. Lopez (4th grade teacher) is our resident expert in rocks, history and geology and has quite a collection of rocks in his classroom. Over the years, students have come to know that they can go to Mr. Lopez's room after school to learn, explore and sometimes trade rocks. Mr. Lopez will be available for rock trading and exploration on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, before and after school. We are hoping that designating some days for rock trading will help with plans for drop off and pick up at school. If you have specific questions about our infamous "rock trading," we encourage you to email Mrs. Coyle or Mr. Lopez directly at or Happy trading!

Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us

We are in the midst of cold and flu season! Please review these tips to help keep you and your family as healthy as possible:

You can help prevent the spread of germs by:

  • Avoiding sick people

  • Keeping your student home if they are sick

  • Using a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes

  • Washing hands often throughout the day (use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds)

  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

  • Disinfecting home surfaces and toys to reduce germs

In general, a student should remain home if he/she has:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or greater in the past 24 hours (We request that students to remain at home until they have been fever free without the use of medicine for 24 hours)

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Thick mucus or drainage

  • Bad cold, with a very runny nose or bad cough, especially if it has kept the student awake at night.

  • Undiagnosed rash

If your student gets sick, it is often most appropriate to keep him/her home from school. A student who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and may spread the illness to other students and staff, especially those who have weakened immune systems.

If you have any questions, please contact your student’s health care provider or your student’s school.

Morning Procedures

Please remember that school campus does not open until 7:45 am. There is no supervision for students prior to that. Please plan your mornings accordingly, we want our students to be safe!

Also, please note as the weather changes our morning routines may change. On cold/rainy mornings we will have students wait in the cafeteria instead of the courtyard from 7:45-8:00am. We will open the playground at 8:00 as usual. On rainy days, we also have kids wait in the cafeteria until their teachers come to pick them up for class.

Support School Safety

Parking & Drop Off

Please note that parking is at a premium, particularly now that we have so many new families who joined us this fall. If you are arriving early and waiting with your child in your car, please consider parking along the street to ensure our staff can find parking when they arrive.

It is essential that you pull all the way forward in the drop off lane so that we can get all of our cars/kiddos into the drop off zone and then out of their car in a safe and efficient manner. When there are no buses in the drop off area, please pull all the way forward. You may drop off in the bus area after the buses leave. This will create more room for everyone to move through safely.

Entering Campus

If you are walking your child onto campus and plan to go past the big, black gate, you must sign in at the front office and obtain a visitor badge to be on campus. Remember to sign out when you leave as well. This helps us to account for everyone that is on campus.

Food Service News

We've gotten lots of feedback from students and families regarding some changes in food services. Here is some info from our Food Service Director Christina Lawson:

A. WPUSD has started offering chocolate milk on Fridays only. Our Food Service department is really focused on bringing in lots of fruits and vegetables this year and reducing down the occurrence of items with added sugar.

B. Want to help shape the future of WPUSD food service offerings? We are looking for teachers, parents, community members that are interested in being on some panels/focus groups regarding food service selections and branding over the next year. Please reach out to Christina Lawson at if interested.

C. We are lucky to be able to feature lots of CA grown produce that is seasonal and fresh. All our offerings are all CA Grown at the moment including our carrots, lettuce, plums, peaches, oranges, zucchini, strawberries to name a few!
