A Message from the Superintendent
The first day of school is Wednesday, August 9. If you have not registered or confirmed the accuracy of your data please do so as soon as possible so that we can appropriately plan. Check your Parent Square account for messages from your principal with details related to the start of school. One more thing about Parent Square, find information about how to activate the two-way communication tool below in the 2023-24 School Year Announcements section.
EXPANDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DAY AND SCHOOL YEAR
Alvord provides an extension of the school day and school year through its Expanded Learning Program. The focus is on academic, artistic, social, emotional, and physical development for students in elementary and middle school, including middle school sports. The program does not replicate learning activities that take place during the regular school day. Instead, it builds upon them. The program is offered everyday after school, as well as intercession, including summer and extended breaks for holidays. Learn more about it here. Or call (951) 358-1682, Monday - Friday, 9:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.
Did you know we have an after school competitive sports and skills development program in our four middle schools? We started the program this past year and expect it to be even bigger and better this year. Contact your middle school counselor or administration for details.
Track and Field
Please be advised of the new California law regarding responsibility for the safe storage of firearms around children. The law is the result of an increase of children bringing firearms to school. In many of those cases, the child obtained the firearm from his or her home. Please take the time to review the letter in English or Spanish here.

Parent Square is a safe and secure platform for school-to-home and home-to-school communication. I use it to send this weekly message. All of our schools rely on it to keep parents informed. Instead of a one-way communication tool, Parent Square provides two-way communication. But to fully utilize the two-way feature of Parent Square, you have to activate your account.
