Daylight Savings Time ended today, please make sure all clocks and alarms are set properly to start the week! Keep reading for important messages, reminders and community announcements.
This Monday, 11/5/18, at 9:00am our school will have a lockdown/barricade drill. This is an opportunity for teachers, staff, and students to practice what to do if there were a threat on campus that required us to stop all movement and remain in classrooms. The drill will last about 20 minutes. All teachers have been informed and provided examples of lessons and communication strategies about how to support students in this type of drill. The staff are experienced in the process, and I am confident it will be a good training for us all. I encourage you to talk with your child about the drill. Our goal is to not spread fear or worries, but to help everyone to feel prepared. Thank you for your collaboration.

Bring all excess candy to school by this Wednesday 11/7! 150 pounds collected so far! The candy buy-back is sponsored by the dental & orthodontic offices of Drs.

We take the candy to their office in San Carlos and then it is shipped off to US troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude. Thank you for your participation!

Safe Routes to (and from) School
Crosswalk note: Please encourage all drivers to wait, completely stopped, at all intersections until parents and children have cleared the entire crosswalk and stepped fully onto the sidewalk before proceeding with their car. Pedestrians have the right of way and drivers are required by law to stay stopped until a crosswalk is empty. This law applies to all crosswalks and is critically important for crosswalks which our children use to and from school. Children are unpredictable and it is unsafe for cars to proceed through the intersection until children are fully on the sidewalk. Please pass this information to neighbors and friends all around the Shores to help keep our children safe on their way to and from school. If you see unsafe driving, call 9-1-1 to report it (especially helpful if you are able to get a license plate number).
