How Our School System is Organized

Teachers - Are the first people you should go to with a concern about your child and their learning. Talk to teachers about your child; the more they know the more they can help.
Principals - Are responsible for supervising the whole school and helping teachers and staff to create positive learning environments. Talk to the principal about concerns that are not resolved in the classroom or about the school in general.
School staff - Provide various types of assistance and support within and outside of the classrooms.
Other helpful school staff are: secretaries, attendance clerks, custodians, librarians, food service workers, proctors, health clerks, and bus drivers.
District office - Provides support for all of the schools located in the district and is run by the superintendent. Implements decisions made by the school board.
Contact this office if you have issues that the school principal or staff cannot resolve.
School board - Decides how the local school district will operate and consists of elected or appointed school members. Makes decisions about facilities, budget, staff, and other programs.
Department of Education - Oversees all school districts in California and is run by the state superintendent. Implements state-level decisions such as standards, funding, policies, etc. Contact the state Department of Education with issues that cannot be resolved at the school district.
PTA/PTO - A group of parents, teachers, and sometimes students, that work together to improve the school and benefit students.

California regulations require all next year’s seventh grade students to have a pertussis vaccine booster, called a Tdap, before the 2013-2014 school year begins. Official proof of a Tdap or DTP immunization, after the age of 7, is required before a student may receive books, class assignments or begin school next year.

Please provide proof of the immunization to the school office as soon as possible. Students who have not provided official proof of the Tdap immunization will NOT be allowed to begin seventh grade next fall.

For information about obtaining the vaccine, check with your physician or clinic, or call the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health clinic at 1- 800- 722-4777. If you have questions, please call your schools health office.

Once or twice a year, a handful of missionaries from local church groups visit the neighborhood and attempt to hand out religious literature. The laws prohibit them from distributing materials on school property, but since they are on public sidewalks they may distribute literature to the public. They are respectful of our students and they do not block students from walking or say anything if the student declines the information. We will address this situation during our morning student announcements to remind students that they have the right to say "no, thank you" to anyone handing out materials or flyers on the sidewalks around school.

Parents may drop-off students along the curb in our parking lot; however, you may want to explore the new city passenger loading zones created along the east and west side of Day Creek Blvd in addition to the existing passenger loading zones along the southside of Coyote Dr. We also offer early campus supervision with gates opening at 7:15 AM. Talk with your child about the safe routes on and off our campus and make a plan that works for you and your family using all of the options available to you.
