RE: Aeries Communication and SMS Opt-In Text

Dear Marigold Parents & Guardians:

Chico Unified School District is transitioning to a new parent communication system.

Our new Aeries Communication system will allow you, as the parent/guardian, to customize how you receive school messages. We encourage you to share both positive, and constructive, feedback. You can provide feedback by visiting the Chico Unified website.

As we test this new communication system, you may receive duplicate test messages throughout the first few weeks of January (one from our existing communication system and one message from our new system); this is an effort to ensure the new system is reaching all of our parents.

How to Ensure You Receive School Communication, Information and Emergency Alerts:

· Login to your Aeries Parent Portal and Confirm all Contact Information (Learn How)

· An opt-in message will be sent to all cell phones on Wednesday, 12/19/18. If you wish to receive communication via text messages, then please make sure your text messaging option is enabled

· Provide feedback – we will be launching this communication system district-wide, so your feedback is an integral component of a successful implementation. We greatly appreciate any feedback you are willing to share with us.

We are very excited about this new program and hope that it will help us connect with you regarding important school events and information. If you have any questions, then please feel free to visit us in the main office or call Chico Unified School District at (530) 891-3000 ext. 149.

Thank you for participating, and we look forward to hearing your feedback.

Mr. Friedman's 4th grade class is holding their annual sock drive now until Jan 8th. Please consider purchasing socks at Big 5 on Mangrove. If you mention Marigold School at checkout, you will be given the special price of $2/per pair. All socks collected will be given to the Torres Shelter as a gift from Room 22. Thank you for helping to contribute to this great cause!!


To Marigold parents/guardians of 5th graders,

It’s hard to believe, but it is time for you to start thinking about Jr High for your student. If you are interested in your student attending a Jr High that is not your resident school, you must complete a Form 10. If you are attending Marigold already on a Form 10 – it does not matter. That form was specifically for elementary school. A new Form 10 must be completed for Jr High.

The Form 10 is ONLY online. You will complete the form and submit - it will go directly to our district office. You will receive an email that it was received. If you do not get that confirmation email, there was a problem and it did not go through. There will not be paper copies of this form given out at all this year. The link to find the fillable Form 10 is:

www.chicousd.org (scroll down under announcements)

If you are not sure which Jr. High is your school of residence, we will be happy to help you in the office. The deadline to be considered in the lottery is 4:00 pm Friday, January 11, 2019.


Sign up to receive important school information via REMIND. In the case of a campus emergency, this will be the fastest and most effective way to get info from the school:

Kindergarten Registration 2019-20

To enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019. To enter Transitional Kindergarten, a child must turn five between September 2, 2019 and December 2, 2019. Parents should register their children at the school serving their residence area. (see below) Proof of residence is required.

Marigold will be accepting registrations online the week of December 3 - 7, 2018. You will access the registration portal 'ENROLL NOW' at www.chicousd.org.

Please complete your registration at home, print it and then bring it with your supporting documents (as noted below) to the Marigold school office. At that time you will be asked to sign the registration form you completed online along with several other documents.

Priority will be assigned based on the date of registration. The time of day that registration occurs will not constitute a priority. All children will be enrolled, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.

The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency (rental/lease agreement, purchase/escrow agreement, annual tax bill, notarized statement from property owner, driver's license or copy of a utility bill) and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry. State law requires students beginning Kindergarten have all required immunizations. Students missing immunizations will not be able to start school until we received these records.

For information regarding the Hands-on Thematic Learning Community program, contact Hooker Oak School, 891‑3119; for information regarding the Two-Way Immersion Program, contact Rosedale School, 891-3104. Applications for these alternative programs, as well as Form 10 School of Choice applications, will be available ONLINE only at the time of registration. You will receive a confirmation email the district office received your Form 10 application. If you do not receive that email, it did not go through.
