Hispanic Heritage Month

Here at Corvallis we have a very diverse group of students. We have many students of Latino and Hispanic heritage. We know that there is a huge variety of cultures within the Latino and Hispanic group.

This month we will highlight strong Latino/Hispanic voices. If you have a suggestion, please email me.

If your child would like to be one of our student voices, I would love to hear from them. It's amazing to hear why students are proud of who they are. I learn so many interesting things and it's great for students to share with each other.

If there is something you would like to share with our school, please let me know.

Reading, Reading and more Reading

Hello Corvallis Families,

Tuesday is a 1:30 dismissal for all students. It's a professional development day for our staff. We're working hard to give our students the best.

Family Literacy Night is this Wednesday! Join us 5:30-6:30 as we focus on ways to rad with your child. Oh and we have free books too!

Here is a website that lists tons of books with more diverse story lines and characters. I want all of our students to see themselves in a book.


Let's keep reading!

Water & milk only at school

Please only send your child to school with water. We have milk in the cafeteria. Sports drinks and juice are getting spilled and making a sticky mess. With the increase in sugar, bugs, rodents and other pests will start moving in.

Students will be asked to put these drinks in their backpacks to drink at home.

Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible

Be Safe is our first Corvallis rule. We show safety in a number of different ways.

Question of the week: What are some things we can say to someone who is bothering us?

Some examples we teach here are:

I feel ____ when you _____.

I don't like that, don't do it again.

That hurt my feelings.

That hurt my (arm, leg, ect)

That was rude and hurt my feelings.

Drop Off and Pick Up

Please be mindful of parking. The red curbs are marked by the city because of a safety risk. Parking in these zones presents a danger to our students. Parking is tough around our school and we want to be safe for our students.

Do not park or block the crosswalk. Again this is dangerous for our students and families.

Bus loading zones are for the safe transportation of our students. Do not park in the bus zones. The bus is on a schedule and may block you in creating a stoppage in the flow of traffic.

Absences and Tardies

Every school day is a day of learning for our students. It's important that students are in class on time and ready to learn. Our students line up at 8:33 and are in classrooms at 8:35.

Students entering the building from 8:35-8:45 will be greeted by our staff and given a tardy slip to take to class. After 8:45 students will report to the office to obtain a tardy slip.

If your child will not attend school on a particular day you may email cor.att@slzusd.org or call 510-317-4999. Please leave a voice mail. Our office checks it several times a day.
