Lunch Change Effective May 15

Food Services has notified us that starting this week, Monday lunch options will be cheese quesadillas or bento box. In addition, Thursday lunch will be Mary's chicken and cheese quesadillas. This change should be until the end of the year but can change at any time due to supply resources. 

State Testing in May

State testing continues this week through the middle of May for students in grades 3-5. They will be working on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). During this testing period, we ask that families plan to have their students in school on time and stay the entire school day. Missing portions of the test will require students to make up the testing on an alternate day with a group outside of their classroom. We know from experience that students do best when they test with their class in their own classroom rather than with another staff member.  If you have any questions regarding CAASPP, please contact your child’s teacher. 

Sonic for Dinner Monday May 15

The PTF has organized another “Family Drive Thru” Fundraiser. On Monday, May 15th from 5:00-7:00 plan to “drive in” to Sonic and purchase dinner using this flyer. Sonic will be donating 20% of all purchases with this flyer back to our school.  You must have a physical copy of the flyer so Sonic can staple it to the receipt for the school to receive the donation.  Online orders also do not count.  

Narcan/Fentanyl- FREE parent presentation!

Join us May 18th at 5:30 pm in the Hancock Auditorium for a community event to stop fentanyl overdoses and save lives! Childcare and light refreshments will be provided. Please sign up ahead of time for preparation purposes. https://forms.gle/L4PBYiQEULmBw5Gt8

 Free Narcan provided by Say San Diego. See Flyer.

No School May 26 - May 29 - Memorial Weekend
