For both students and parents - Be On Time For School. The simplest plan for being punctual at school is to arrive 15 minutes early. This might sound easy, but life often gets in the way of completing this goal. Here is a simple step-by-step strategy to make sure this happens:

1. Track how long it takes to get ready in the morning.

2. Know how long it take to drive to school - in a "worst case" scenario.

3. Add 33% more time to the total time of your morning routine and drive.

4. Avoid checking email or voicemail before walking out the door.

5. Arrange all your important items the night before (clothes, shoes, backpack, lunch).

6. Never let your gas tank go under 1/4 full.

7. Avoid the trap of "just one more thing".

Do a fun activity while walking or driving to school like singing a song or playing "I Spy" so you'll look forward to the walk or drive.

This new habit will help your child have a positive attitude about their day. No longer will they be looked at by the students and teacher when they walk in late to class, whether it is one minute or 25 minutes. This is a positive habit that if developed early, will last a lifetime!


Don't forget to turn in your Form 10 if you wish for your student to attend a school other than your school of residence for the upcoming school year. The Form 10 must be completed by January 23rd to make our lottery. The Form 10 is only available on the Chico Unified School District website.

*Report absences the day they happen - Unverified absences lead to truancy.

*Email mgarcia@chicousd.org OR call 891-3121 ext 52101 to report absence.

*Avoid unnecessary absences. Some are unavoidable, like a contagious illness, however some injuries can be accommodated for at school so students can attend.

*Develop the habit of attendance to prepare your student for success on the job and in life.
