State Testing 

Each year, students in grades three through five at Hancock Elementary participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).This year, your child will take the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy and mathematics in grades three through five and the California Science Test (CAST) in 5th grade. We will start testing on Monday, May 8th and go through May 25th. Students do best when they test with their class in their own classroom rather than with another staff member. Therefore, we ask that families make arrangements to have their students in school all day during state testing. If you have any questions regarding CAASPP, please contact your child’s teacher. 

Water Refill Stations Under Construction

Please be sure to send your student to school with a full water bottle each day. All of the filtered water refill stations on campus are under construction and will not be available for some time. We do have a supply of bottled water available if needed by students, as well as potable water in classroom sinks. However, the filtered refill stations are not available until the construction project has been completed.

Student Absences Due to Illness

Please keep your child home when they’re sick.  They must be at least 24-hours fever and vomit/diarrhea free (unmedicated) before returning to school. 

If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please complete the Self Reporting Tool and notify the school’s health office. If you have any questions about when and what is required for your student to return to school, please contact the office at 619-605-3200.

Reporting Absences

If your child will be absent please be sure to report the absence to the office, not just your teacher.  You may report the absence using this google form OR you may call our phone line at 619-605-3200 and press 1 for attendance to leave a message any day/time.  Please be specific in your reason.
