Please enjoy the photos from the week below. I hope you have a wonderful weekend that is both restful and rejuvenating. I'm having tacos, beach time, and redwoods :).

Teaching Kids to Respect Diversity
Attendance is one of the district's focus goals this year. Please take vacations during our scheduled time off rather than on school days. Truancy letters (ouch) will be sent home at 3, 6, and 10 days of unexcused absences. At 10 days of unexcused absences, we are required to look into the School Attendance Review Boards (SARB) process. We don't want to get there.
Did you know that arriving more than 30 minutes late or leaving school early for more than 30 minutes is considered an unexcused absence unless it is for a valid reason? You can find detailed information about attendance on our district's website here.
We are here to help. Please reach out any time. We value open communication and working together to ensure that all of our students are present and engaged.
Asymptomatic On-Site Testing
There is a one-time online registration requirement. Parents/Guardians may pre-register their child for on-site COVID Testing by completing the link here or scanning the QR code to the right. These links are school specific. If you have children at more than one site, you will need to use the individual code specifically for your child’s school.
Once registered, please let your child's teacher know if they will be tested every week or intermittently. If intermittent, parents are required to inform the teacher by the day before. If you do not want your child tested, do not register and let your child's teacher know. Unregistered students will not be tested. Thank you for your partnership on this.
I would like to know what time of the day works best for most parents. Please complete the questionnaire below so that I may try to meet the needs of all of our families. It's only three questions. You can share what content you are interested in as well.
Thank you for your donations that provided grants for our teachers, specialists, and school. We are grateful that we have such a supportive community who provides us with means to provide resources that will enrich the educational and social-emotional lives of our students.
Farm Work Day - September 26 - 9-12
We appreciate any help you can give!
The Farm is our outdoor classroom and its maintenance is provided exclusively by Ohlone parent volunteer service hours. No experience necessary! There are jobs for every ability level from weeding to fix it projects and everything in between. Each family is expected to volunteer one hour per child each year for Farm Workdays. So, if you have two children at Ohlone, your family should volunteer for 2 hours for one Farm Workday or 1 hour for two Farm Workdays. We can't take care of our farm without our parent volunteers, so thank you.
