Principal’s Message

To improve safety, the District has worked with community partners to identify a new, safer bus stop location near Castro and Mistral Elementaries. Effective Monday, Oct. 31, the Blue & Purple Routes bus stop location will be moved from Latham Street to California Street at the southeast corner of Escuela Ave. During the transition, we will also have an adult and signage at the former bus stop location to direct students to the new stop.

Clothing Needs for Yosemite: If you have hiking boots, gloves, or warm clothing that you are willing to donate for the 8th grade Yosemite trip, we would love to have them.

Chromebooks for Sixth-graders are in!

Parents: Sign up for a time to pick up your student’s device

Each sixth-grader and a parent should plan to attend a 45-minute session held Oct. 19-21 to pick up his/her new District-issued Chromebook for schoolwork. Students should bring their ID cards. There will be a presentation on care and expectations for these devices, and parents and students will be asked to sign a Chromebook agreement.

Sign up here for a pickup time. All Chromebooks are identical and each sixth-grader will be issued one. If you are unable to sign up online for a session, please contact the office before Oct. 17, and we will be happy to assist you.

These Chromebooks are part of the District being on the tech edge of teaching students to be proficient and responsible digital citizens. Read more about how students throughout the District learn using this technology.
