Parent Bulletin 7/25

Muraoka Families,

First and foremost, we would like to thank you for an incredible start to the school year. It was a joy to see our students and families on campus together again.  We will continue to send a parent bulletin every Sunday with reminders and upcoming events.

We will continue to allow parents to walk their child to their line if it does not begin to pose a safety concern.  Please remember the following:

  • Please keep everything with wheels outside of the front gate
  • Please allow students to eat independently in lunch arbor, parents can stand near fence
  • Please line up behind student lines to keep students visible and to give teachers direct access to their students
  • Please send teachers emails or dojo messages and limit conversations with the teacher as this allows them to return to class quickly to begin their instructional day
  • Please say goodbye to your child at the line and allow only the teacher to lead students to the building
  • Please exit campus as quickly as possible

Kindergarten Arrival: For a smoother, safer arrival, kindergarten students will be lining up outside of our Innovation Center, through our front gates. A separate message has been sent to Kinder parents with protocols, but we would like all families to be aware of this added congestion as Kindergarten parents are required to wait with their child.

Dismissal: If your student is in 3rd-6th grade, we encourage you to create a meeting spot for your child away from the front gate. The school design is slightly flawed as it creates congestion around the dismissal gates, and we would like to make it as safe as possible. Thank you for your support.

Front Office Visits and Calls: This is the busiest time of the year for us in the front office! Thank you for limiting your visits and calls to essential business. Please look to our SchoolDojo, ClassDojo or Muraoka blog for information on release times, schedules, and upcoming events. Thank you in advance for sending your child to school with their lunch/snack/water in hand as we do not have the staff to deliver lunches or water bottles to classrooms throughout the day.

Back to School Night: Wednesday, August 3rd (5pm/5:30pm/6pm) For Grades 1-6 ONLY

Come meet your classroom teacher and learn about the expectations for your new grade level. Presentations will be held inside of classrooms and there are 3 options for you to choose from. Please choose only one time to attend as they will be repeated presentations. This is a parent only event.

PTO Membership: I am sure you have seen our awesome PTO working away to ensure our students, parents and teachers had an amazing start to the year. PTO provided teachers with a welcome back breakfast, provided all signage, balloons, and welcome back snacks at Meet the Teacher. Please consider joining our PTO to ensure that these wonderful services are provided for our students all year long. Please see attachments to join! All forms can be dropped in our PTO box in the front office.

Wellness Policy: Please visit CVESD Wellness Policy to learn more about our District Wellness Policy. Please help us enforce this wellness policy by ensuring your child only has water to drink in class and milk/water/100% juice in their lunchbox.  Thank you for refraining from sending treats such as candy, large bags of chips (snack size with a balanced meal are ok) or large portions of cookies (snack size with a balanced meal are ok). Please know that no food will be taken away from your child, but they may be asked to put item away until afterschool. Thank you for your support.
