Tiger Time, which is our intervention time, will be starting soon. This is where teachers will instruct smaller groups of students in order to meet any academic needs. The teachers are excited to start, but we also need your help. In order to make this successful, we need parents to keep students in school all day. Tiger Time for both grades is Tuesday—Friday at various times depending on your child’s team. One suggestion for keeping students in school is to schedule appointments on Monday afternoons since that is our Early Release day. Please contact your child’s teacher or Principal Fernandez with any questions surrounding our intervention time.
Student Drop-Off and Pick-ups is on Hartman Place
When dropping off or picking up your child on Hartman St. please completely pull over to the curb so traffic can continue to flow. Please do not stop on the crosswalk, this endangers our students. Students are only to cross with the crossing guard on duty. Please follow the school zone speed limit.
School success depends on excellent attendance
For your child to get the most out of school, they need to be there-- and on time! Research shows that missing 10 percent or more of school days hurts success. To prevent absenteeism:

Our truancy policy wants to ensure that learning continues when students have to miss school. Please notify our school when your child is absent and arrange for make-up work to be picked up and then completed by your child. We continue to have fewer students absent each month because we all work together!

From the Health Office...
Dear Parents and students,
As the flu season is fast approaching I would like to remind you of our sick child policy. While we all agree school attendance is very important please do not send your child to school if they have a fever. I would also like to remind parents that if their child comes into the health office with a temperature of 100 degrees or more or if they are vomiting they will be sent home. If your child has a fever and is coughing they may be asked to wear a mask. Please keep your child home if they have a fever and do not send them back until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without medication.
Please remember the importance of hand washing. Hand washing is very important in combating the spread of germs especially at this time of year.
