Core Academy Saturday Mar. 12

Does your student have absences to make up? Could he/she use some extra academic support?  Core Academy not only provides students with an opportunity to receive additional instruction in various core subject areas, but it also gives students the ability to make up one full day of absence and up to 4 tardies!. The instruction during these Saturday sessions is led by Hancock teachers.  The next session will be Saturday, March 12 from 8:00a to 12:00p. This session we are able to offer classes grades K-5!  Spaces are limited. Additional sessions will be offered in April. Note that students will be provided a free breakfast snack during the session. Parents must pick students up promptly at noon.

Sign your student up for Core Academy here: Sign Up Link for 3/12

Literacy Workshop for Families Mar. 9

On Wednesday, March 9th at 5:30pm, the SDUSD Office of Family Engagement will present a “Parents as Partners” workshop for grades K-5 to provide ideas about how to support children’s literacy development at home.  This session will focus on Oral Language. See the linked flyer for more information and how to log in to the Zoom session.

2022-2023 PrimeTime Program Application Opens 3/7

Upcoming Parent Teacher Conferences

The week before Spring Break (Mar 21-25) will be an entire week of early dismissal days so that teachers can meet with parents to review student progress in the 2nd grading period. Watch for messages from your teachers about scheduling meeting times during that week. Students will be dismissed at 12:15 each day. Please be sure to make any necessary arrangements for student pick-up at these earlier times.  Spring Break will be the following week Mar 28-Apr 1.

Lost and Found Fridays!

We will continue to roll out the rack of jackets and sweatshirts that have been piling up in our Lost & Found. After school each Friday, watch for the racks to be near the main gate so parents can look for student lost items.

Questions About Staying Home and Returning after Illness?

  • If your child has symptoms or is complaining of not feeling well please keep them at home and follow this: e-Decision Tree, updated 2/8/2022
  • If your child has come into contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 please also use the e-Decision Tree, updated 2/8/2022to see if you need to quarantine your child. Please note the return to school date can be more than 10 days if the close contact is with a positive person in the same household.
  • Contact the school if your child will be absent for any reason. You may report the absence using this google form or you may also call our phone line at 619-605-3200 and press 1 for attendance to leave a message.Please be specific in your reason.
