Principal's Message


Dear Skyline Families:


As we move into January 2019 and further into our school year, we sometimes forget to practice safe driving when we drop off in the morning or pick up in the afternoon, particularly up on Dell Street. I would like to remind all families that use Dell Street to remember the following:


  • Load and unload your children only on the passenger side of the car to ensure safety.
  • Do not stop and wait for your children in front of driveways.
  • Do not pull into driveways to turn around.
  • Do not park in the red zones.
  • Do not make U-turns on Dell Street.
  • Children who are waiting for their parents need to wait with the teachers on duty and not walk down the street.
  • Children should not play or walk on the neighbor’s landscape.


The safety of your children is important to all of us at Skyline School, as well as with our neighbors up on Dell Street. Please help us by ensuring that you are a safe and responsible driver.


I would also like to remind Skyline families that when you are dropping off and picking up at the front of the campus, that we have designated handicapped parking spots to the right of the theater. It is important that you leave this designated area clear (there are painted lines on the driveway) when you are waiting in line, either in the morning or at the end of the day, so that families who utilize these parking spots, can get in and out. We thank you for your support.


Student Lunch

We are so fortunate to have our students eating in our new lunch area, and to have a beautiful kitchen that allows our staff to make tasty lunch items for our students on a daily basis. It gives me tremendous pride to work in a district that is constantly and consistently trying to grow and improve its lunch program.  


We have the following featured lunch items this month, and I encourage you to have your children try them out. I know they will enjoy it!

  • Handmade beef burritos on whole wheat tortillas made with freshly made pico de gallo
  • Pasta bolognese with freshly made whole wheat garlic toast
  • Orange chicken served with house-made Chinese rice (made with fresh carrots, celery, green onion, ginger and brown rice)
  • Nitrate free beef hot dogs with sweet potato fries
  • Real cheese nachos (kid favorite!) with freshly made pico de gallo


Did you know that we have an all-you-can-eat salad bar, full of fresh vegetables and fruit; our milk is rBST-, antiobiotic-free and contains no high fructose corn syrup; we offer fresh whole grain Hawaiian rolls, fresh wheat hamburger and hot dog buns and fresh 9-grain bread; our lunch trays are environmentally friendly and are biodegradable and compostable; we feature Harvest-of-the-Month produce on our salad bar twice per month; and we continually add clean label products to our menu whenever possible.


The cost of student lunches is $4.25. You can find January’s lunch menu at:


Extra Clothing for Health Office

We often have students who come to the health office and need a change of clothing. Our supply has run low, and we are asking for donations of gently used pants, underclothing and socks, particularly for our older students. If you have items to donate, we ask you to bring them to the office.


Important Information for Current Sixth Grade Students

Students residing in the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) boundary, who will be in grade 7 in the 2019-20 school year, can apply for an intradistrict transfer (IDT).  An intradistrict transfer is when parents/guardians wish to enroll their student at a school other than the designated school that is in their attendance boundary area.  Your student’s designated school boundary is based on where you physically reside, not what elementary school your student currently attends.  Transfers will be approved on a space-available basis after all students who live in the school’s boundary are enrolled.  The online application window opens Friday, March 15, 2019 @ 8:00 am and closes Friday, March 29, 2019 @ 3:00 pm.  For more information please go to
