Join the Arcade Safety Team

This year our Safety Team will be focusing on safety improvements and preparations for the new build. Since construction will start in the next few months, many new procedures will be needed around the school. Joining this team will give you an active voice in how we can better protect our students and the school community. While all community members are welcome to drop in to any Safety Team meeting, we are looking for a designated Parent Representative and Student Representative who are members of the team.

Safety Team meets once a month in the mornings before school to discuss our current safety plan and make any safety related changes or updates. The meetings will be held in Room 1 on the last Wednesday of each month from 7:15 - 7:45 A.M., starting on August 31st.

Please email Mr. Tateishi at if you are interested in joining the team as a Parent Representative or a Student Representative.

Thank you to all of the families that pick-up and drop-off their students in the BACK of the school. Also, parents have been mindful of the caution tape, and have been waiting for students to load/unload at the END of the line. This is the safest practice and we appreciate you helping keeping our students safe and helping pick-up and drop-off go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Arcade Students Are Not Allowed on Mira Loma Campus During School Hours

Attention, families! Now that Mira Loma's end time is 3:35 P.M., some of our students are entering Mira Loma's campus while school is still in session at Mira Loma. This has been very disruptive to Mira Loma's learning environment, as some students have been on skateboards or on bikes.

Please remind your students they can not go on other school campuses while school is in session. Thank you for helping support our other San Juan campuses!

Covid Testing Available for Students at Arcade

Arcade Middle School offers COVID-19 Rapid testing for students in the main office.

Face coverings are still required in the Covid testing area.

Please make sure you pre-register your student before coming to test:

Please call to make an arrangement to have your student tested.

This testing is for San Juan Unified School District students and staff only.

Breakfast and Lunch Remain Free to All Students

Students must simply enter their Student ID numbers in order to get a free school breakfast or lunch. Please encourage your student to start memorizing their Student ID number, so that the cafeteria line moves as quickly as possible. Students can find their Student ID numbers on their schedules, along with their lunch assignment (1st Lunch or 2nd Lunch).

Students are assigned 1st or 2nd Lunch based on their 4th period teacher. Students who have 1st Lunch go to lunch before attending their 4th period class, while students who have 2nd Lunch go to lunch after their 4th period class. The lunch assignments by teacher are available by clicking on the red button below.

For example, if a student has Mr. Androlowicz for 4th period, they will have 1st Lunch, and they will go to lunch before attending Mr. Androlowicz's class. If a student has Mr. Alvarez for 4th period, they are assigned 2nd Lunch, and they will go to lunch after attending Mr. Alvarez's class.

Lunch assignments can be confusing, so all 3rd period teachers will review the process with students on the first few days of school to help ensure that all students go to lunch and their 4th period class at the proper times.
