ATTENDANCE

We are thankful!

As we take a short break from school for Thanksgiving, we want to express our gratitude for everyone who makes it possible for as many students as possible to come to school every day, on time, ready to learn. We thank:

• Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority since they know the habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom and eventually in a job.
• Our wonderful teachers who pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge so children do not want to miss out on learning
• Our support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our children need

We appreciate each one of you so much. We look forward to seeing you after the Thanksgiving holiday. We also hope you will keep in mind that school is closed on Monday November 24, 2014 reopens Monday December 1, 2014.

We especially appreciate everyone’s efforts to avoid taking extra time off during the Thanksgiving holiday. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and leave your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Thank you for your continued partnership in the success of our students.

Safety First for All Children

The Oakley School District is committed to providing a safe environment for all children at school and at home. We have had no reports of firearms on any of our campuses and much of the credit must go to you the parents. One of the easiest ways to prevent an accidental shooting at home or school is to make sure all firearms are properly stored. It is not only the logical, common sense thing to do, but it is now the law. California law holds that an adult may be held criminally liable if a firearm is improperly stored.
