Weekly News from the Ranch

Tustin Ranch Elementary

A Message from Mrs. Denny

September 17, 2021

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch (Tustin Ranch)...

It has been a GREAT week! Routines are starting to stick, but we will continue to work on this. Parent-Teacher conferences are next week. This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss one of your most favorite people with their teacher, who also thinks they are awesome! Please be sure to attend and be on time. Each conference is only 15-20 minutes. Every day next week will be early dismissal (just like Wednesdays).

Our TRE Dads group came and played games at recess with our students and the students LOVED it! If you are a dad, grandpa, or uncle and would like to be a part of the TRE DADs Crew please email trepta@gmail.com.

Trunk or Treat is coming (October 14). If you have a TRUNK you'd like to decorate and you'd like to pass out goodies please sign up HERE. There are 35 TRUNK spots available. Each trunk must be fully self-contained. All items must be individually wrapped in sealed wrapping. All items handed out must be appropriate for children.

Emails and phone messages: Please note that our staff will return emails and phone messages within 24 hours of receiving the message, during school hours, or the following workday after a weekend.

Parking lot volunteers: If you would like to volunteer to help the traffic flow through our parking lot either before or after school, please email me.

Have a wonderful weekend. We will see you Monday!

Tustin Ranch Dress Code

Education Law does allow public schools to establish a dress code.

Student Dress Codes are established to:

● Promote a climate and culture where scholar focus is on learning

● Promote a productive safe instructional environment

While society reflects a wide range of personal expression in clothing, grooming, and accessories, the quality of scholar work and behavior is affected by personal appearance. Scholars are expected to wear clothing that is clean, neat, appropriate, and safe.

TUSD Dress Code:

· No tight/revealing shirts (workout tops, undergarments showing, see-through, low-cut, etc.)

*Teachers and staff may have students remove or put away non- essentials items (ie: hats, jewelry, personal items, accessories, etc.) either in or out of the classroom if they are causing a disruption or are distracting other students.

*Please label all water bottles, lunch boxes, jackets, and removable clothing items with your child’s name. These items are commonly left on the playground, and as we do our best to return labeled items to the proper owner, unlabeled items will be placed in the Lost & Found located outside the Multi-Purpose Room.
