Monster Dash and Fundraiser for Hancock

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Jog-a-thon Fundraiser Monster Dash this year.  We reached our goal of $30,000 + as of Thursday, October 28th and are still earning.  Please know donations are still being accepted until November 4th at 3PM.  All donations are used for the students at Hancock to support our Garden and Art programs, teacher requests for supplies that cannot be purchased by the school site, and field trips once we are able to.  Final fun run prizes for fundraising will be distributed over the next two weeks.

Please Be Courteous to Our Neighbors

Parents please remember that we are not allowed to park on neighboring streets such as Brumby Way for drop off and pick up. There is signage to remind folks to please follow the parking rules posted.  Our neighbors are asking for our cooperation as some of their driveways have even been blocked preventing them from parking in their own driveways.  

Core Academy Session #2 - Saturday Nov 12

This month’s Core Academy will be held Saturday November 12th from 8:00a - 12:00p. Core Academy provides students with an opportunity to receive additional instruction in various core subject areas to help them reach their academic goals. The instruction during these 4 hour Saturday sessions is led by Hancock teachers.  We are offering this to students in grades 2-5 only at this time. Spaces are limited. Additional sessions will be offered each month. To sign up, please use our Google Form.  Note that students will be provided a free breakfast snack during the session. Parents must pick students up promptly at noon.

Lost and Found is Full!

Over the past couple months our lost and found has outgrown our display area by the lunch court. So, to help reunite clothing items with their students, our staff will be hanging jackets and sweaters on a rack and it will be out in front of the school during pick-up on Wed (11/3) and Fri (11/5). If your student is missing these types of items, please be sure to look on the rack these days. Please tell your students to check the lost and found regularly for lost items. If they don’t know where it is, have them ask their teacher!

Illness Absences During the COVID Pandemic

Students who are sent home or asked to stay home with any symptoms that could be COVID related are only able to return to school if a negative PCR COVID-19 test result is provided to our health office, or if the student quarantines for 10 days. Students can utilize free PCR testing at drive-up centers at the District’s comprehensive high schools .To schedule an appointment at one of these high school locations, visit the district’s SDUSD COVID Status Webpage. Click on the COVID-19 Testing link and look for Symptomatic Testing.

After an illness related absence, the guidelines for your student to return are as follows:

  • Improvement in symptoms
  • 24 hours fever free without the help of fever reducing medication
  • Negative PCR test (please note: rapid/antigen tests are not accepted) - please present the result to our health office (bvaldez@sandi.net) before sending your student back to school. Students must get a green “cleared” pass from the front office before they can return to class.

Need to Report an Absence?

If your child will be absent from school, please be sure to report your absence to the office, not just your teacher.  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.
