Back to School Night is Tuesday, Sept. 17th!

THIS JUST IN....Child Care Option Available!!!!

We will be playing a movie in the auditorium for PRISK students who have to come with their parents/guardians due to child-care availability for the evening.

A few members of our recreation staff provide supervision in the auditorium. They will NOT be supervising the playground at any time.

Please make sure your child is willing to sit back, relax, and enjoy (or fall asleep... hee hee).



Did you Notice??

Our Back-To-School Night Flyer notes "Boy Scouts" in our community information section.

BUT, Cub Scout Pack 88 welcomes ALL children.... girls and boys.

They want to make sure that all those adventurous little girls know that they are welcome to join too! We have a lot of fun and the children learn so much!


Positions Available on School Site Council... Self-Nominate Now for Voting at BTS Night!

Thank you to those parents/guardians who already put their name in the hat! Your willingness to participate is greatly appreciated!



TB Testing for FREEEEE for VIPS Applicants!


VIPS (Volunteers in Public Schools)

LBUSD mandates that ALL people who wish to volunteer in any capacity at our schools complete a VIPS application which includes a TB test and fingerprinting. The safety of our students is our #1 priority. It is imperative that we are assured that those who volunteer on campus, on field trips, etc. are approved to do so. VIPS applications once approved, are good for FOUR years!

Some volunteers (parents, guardians, grandparents, community members, etc.) are on campus very little throughout the year. Perhaps they just want to go on one field trip with the students or want to help out at a special grade-level event. It is important that everyone understands that even just for ONE activity/event, you MUST have VIPS clearance in order to participate. There are absolutely no exceptions!

So, get your clearance now so if something comes up and you want to join us, you are cleared and ready to go!!!

Applications are available at Prisk or you can download an application on our district website. Click here or on the image to your left to go directly to the district's A-Z index!
