School Children throughout the country will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday in a variety of ways. One of the goals of this event is to make sure that every child is read to by somebody on this day.

We invite you to read your favorite Dr. Seuss book to a class of eager listeners from 8:45-10:00am on Friday, March 3rd. this is a school wide event and we want each class to have a least one guest reader.

Attendance Tags
In order to increase student attendance we have several systems in place here at Pachappa. One of those systems is the Perfect Attendance Tags. Every month a record is ran school wide to find out which students have been to school on time, every day, all day. If your child comes to school on time, every day, all day they will receive a Perfect Attendance Tag (See picture below) every month. 
Attendance is a big indicator of academic success. Please bring your student to school on time, every day, all day. It is highly beneficial for their academic success. Students who were here on time, every day, all day for the months of September and October have already received their tags. Have your student collect them all. 
Perfect Attendance Tags
 Campus Safety Procedures
Please pull your car all the way forward in the morning on the Riverside Avenue school entrance. If there are available spaces, please park and wait for your child. It creates less traffic when you park. We want your child to always be safe. For your child's safety, do not drop your child on any of the main streets. It is dangerous and creates traffic jams. Thank you!
We will welcome your child to school and if you want to come in with them you must sign in at the front office. Please follow these guidelines so that we can make sure that your child has a safe learning environment. 
Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

All students entering 7th grade in August are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (‘Tdap’) shot in order to attend classes.  Your child will be excluded from attendance if you do not meet this requirement.  Students who are currently in 6th grade should fulfill this requirement now and bring the shot record to the school office.

Reminder about early pick-up.
California Ed Code requires that if a child is to be picked up early, the parent must do so. In the past we have allowed anyone on the emergency card to act on your behalf.
This has changed.
A parent must be the one picking up the student or there must be a note with the date and time provided to the school with the person picking up the child. Simply put, if someone other than the parent is picking up a student, they must have a written note signed by the parent with the time and date on it.
Students checked out early without a verified medical appointment will be marked as unexcused early release. This will count against the student's attendance. If you have any questions, please call our office.
