Dear Solana Vista Families,
As we gear up for another exciting school year. I wanted to take a moment to specifically point out some very important NEW things for the 2016-2017 school year.
There has been a change to our student calendar. During the 2016-17 school year, we will have three additional minimum days. These minimum days will provide our staff with non-instructional time for cross-grade level and department collaboration, planning, evaluating, and reflecting on teaching and student performance.
The dates for the minimum days are: September 28, 2016, December 7, 2016, and April 5, 2017. On those days, your child’s school will follow the same schedule used on the minimum days held during Parent-Teacher Conferences. Click here for a link to the district student calendar.
Students may be dropped off between 8:15 and 8:30 each morning. Playground gates will be opened when supervision begins at 8:15 (there is no playground supervision prior to 8:15)
In addition, all Solana Beach district schools have updated their Wellness guidelines. Food treats for birthdays will no longer be allowed beginning the first day of school.
If you wish to commemorate your child’s birthday at school, some ideas include: sharing a favorite book or game, giving stickers or pencils. Please check with your teacher.
Research documents that a student's health affects their attendance and ability to learn. Healthy children:
Finally, all schools have allocated three “15 minute” visitor parking spaces near the front office. The intent of these spaces is to provide access for parents who have brief office business. Examples of appropriate uses for these spaces would be picking up a sick child from the nurses office, registering a new student, or checking a student in or out of school during the school day. This parking would not accommodate classroom volunteers or scheduled appointments on campus. Please, be courteous to all families and follow these guidelines whenever using one of these parking spaces.
