Sandals/Open-Toed Shoes & Pajamas to School:

Please do not send your child to school in open-toed shoes or sandals. There have been quite a few injuries when students wear sandals or open-toed shoes to school. Also, students should not wear pajamas to school, UNLESS it is a Pajama Day.

Cough and/or Fever & Returning to School Protocol:

Please remember, if your student has a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and/or loss of taste and/or smell, our District's COVID protocol requires a negative COVID test in order to return to school. Please email a picture of the negative test to our office clerk, Mrs. Heide at

Cooler Weather in the Forecast: As the weather gets cooler these next months ahead, please make sure your child has a sweatshirt, sweater, or jacket for school. The early mornings can be chilly when students arrive to school and the wind seems to change throughout the day.

Lost & Found News: Please LABEL all of your child's sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, water bottles, backpacks and lunch bags. We have quite a collection of LOST items that are located at the front of the school, outside of the office. After 3 weeks of collecting LOST items, we will be making a donation to a local charity organization as it is just too many LOST items that do not get picked up. Please stop by the front of the office and check the Lost & Found rack.

Neighbors and Trash:

It has been brought to my attention by a few neighbors that a lot of trash is accumulating at the sidewalks and front yards of neighbors' houses. Please help keep the neighborhood clean by throwing away your garbage. Thank you!

Daily Attendance:

Please call the school office at (805) 520-6750 to report your child's absence. Parents and guardians have up to 5 days to report their student's absence, otherwise, the absence becomes a truancy/unexcused absence.

School Start Time and Gates:

Our gates open at 7:40 a.m. each day.

Students eating breakfast can enter the front gate of the school starting at 7:35 a.m.

The first bell rings at 7:55 a.m. Teachers and students should be at their classroom line by the 7:55 a.m. bell.

The tardy bell rings at 8:00 a.m. If students enter the gates after 8:00 a.m., they will be considered tardy.

*Starting these healthy life habits of being on time, sets your student up for success.
