School Attendance is IMPORTANT!

It's always important to attend school! We hope that you are able to join us to learn, meet friends, and have a good time! We work hard to make Madrona a "Mustang Learning Zone" so be sure to come to school prepared to be a Mustang Learner.
School drop-off is at 8:00AM. Please do not drop off students early as there is no campus supervision.

*To register and learn tuition costs and hours for childcare before and afterschool, contact CVUSD Childcare at (805) 492-3567.

As a reminder Mustangs, we want to make all of our students, staff, and parents stay safe on campus. If your TK / Kindergarten student picks up breakfast at the cafeteria, please escort them to the cafeteria door and walk them to the front TK/Kindergarten gate entrance of the school. With a separate cafeteria and MPR, we want to be certain that our TK/K students are safely escorted to the campus gate.
Please do not park in spaces that are marked for Disabled Persons if you do not have authorization. We have two spaces marked (outlined in blue) for those cars displaying placards. The violation fines are hefty...$400 ticket! It is possible that the TOPD, Sheriff's Department, might begin issuing citations if there is a vehicle parked in the space without a placard.
Please follow safety rules and drive slowly and with caution in our parking lot. We have buses and vehicles, two lanes, and lots of children, moving about. Most of all, please keep your eyes on the road...that phone call can wait!

Thank you, Madrona Families!

A quick note: as we are in the middle of the cold and flu season, if your student is out sick, please be certain that students are fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. We want to keep our students and staff healthy!
