Welcome Back Week!

August 11, 2019


Greetings Staff…


We had a great two days last week. Thanks for everyone's participation in all the activities. It was great catching up on things from over the summer and welcoming new staff.


If you missed Tammi Sucheck's email about a Back-to-School Staff BBQ check your email and see if there is a way you can contribute. They are working out the final details about this and she will have more info soon.


Every school day this week will be a 1-6 period schedule. We will not start the rotating schedule until Tuesday, August 20.


Monday - We have a Make-up Day for Online Registration and Check-in for parents and students from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM.


Tuesday - The first day of school begins at 8:10 AM. Feel free to remind students that carpool rotates clockwise around the block at Placerita. Students should only be dropped off in the carpool lane in front of school or other location while moving in the clockwise direction. At no time should a student have to cross the road from a car to get on campus. This is for everyone’s safety. Remember the first few days will be busier than it will be after we have all found our niche of dropoff time.


Friday - We will have an assembly day schedule to roll out our Miner PRIDE Program for the year.

Paul Kass shared this... It's perfect!
