COVID Communication

We know that COVID has touched many of our homes in different ways, mine included.

Please remember to communicate with us if your child, or anyone in your home tests positive for COVID-19. We want all of our community to be healthy, so we will be following up with you to make sure you have the resources you need and your child is safely quarantined so the virus does not spread at school.

Feel free to call the school when we return on Monday, or e-mail me directly at to let me know any important information or if you have any questions.

Open Enrollment - January 11-25th

If your address is not within the boundaries of Sycamore Elementary, you must complete the Open Enrollment process every year for each of your children.

After January 10th, please click the following link to begin:

Then scroll down and select Sycamore Elementary to enroll for the next school year.

We will call you after February 1st to let you know if you have been accepted.

Tell your friends and neighbors! We would love to have them join us at Sycamore!

Kindergarten Enrollment Begins January 13th!

Don't wait!! If you have a child that will have their 5th birthday by September 1, 2021, they are of age to be enrolled in Kindergarten this fall. It is very important we know how many students will be enrolled in Kindergarten as soon as possible so we can plan for the correct number of teachers we will need. Please call the office and begin the process of enrolling this month!

You will need:

  • Birthdate verification (birth certificate or other)
  • Proof of address (utility bill, rental agreement, etc.)
  • Vaccination record (Please start the process early so we can be sure your child has all the necessary vaccines, as students cannot begin school without them.)

Call Marcela in the office if you have any questions. Don't wait!!

ELAC meeting January 15 @ 8:30

Join us for an important session sharing Mental Health resources by our Counselor, Ms. Reyna Beltran. You will learn about important strategies for getting through this difficult time in a healthy way, as well as learning about the many resources available to you and your family. I will also be sharing some important information about the California Healthy Youth Act and the Health Education plan for OUSD.

PTA Meeting January 15 @ 9:30

All members welcome to join the meeting! We will be sharing out current status in the area of membership and finances. We would love to have your input on fundraisers and ways our PTA can support our students' learning this year.
