Annual State Testing begins This Week

Grades 3-5 will be taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) May 9th - May 26th. Students will test in the mornings from the opening of school until 10:00. Since testing is first thing in the morning we ask that students be on time, get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast before coming to school.  We ask that parents please schedule appointments outside of these dates and times if possible.  We would like to give our students the best opportunity to show what they have learned this year. 

Kindergarten Early Enrollment Begins This Week

An early enrollment window for registering new Kinder students will be May 9-20th in person. Parents can pick up packets in the office beginning May 9, between the hours of 9am-1pm and can be returned any time prior to May 20th. If you miss this early window, the office will begin registration for all students Aug. 18th.  Kindergarten is for students who will turn 5 years old by Sept 1, 2022. .

Universal Transitional Kindergarten Registration Continues

UTK - A new UTK webpage is available on the NSEO website and includes a link to the UTK FAQs regarding the pre-enrollment process for the 2022-2023 school year.  Beginning May 2nd, you will be able to apply for UTK by using the school finder on the link above. Once you use the school finder, and verify your child’s date of birth, you will be prompted to fill out a google doc to apply for UTK at Hancock in the fall. You must have a google account in order to fill out the google form. Birth certificate and proof of residency (page one of your lease) must be uploaded to the google doc in order to proceed. Parents who apply for UTK by May 20th will be notified the first week of June if they have been offered a spot.  UTK is for students who turn 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2022.
