An Internet Safety Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. Ed.D.

Dear Parents,

We want to make you aware of what seems to be the latest viral challenge targeting children.

From what we have learned, these and other suggestions can also be found spliced into some YouTube Kids videos, including Fortnite and Peppa the Pig. This challenge also occurs through an app called WhatsApp, which could function on both phones and…

Student safety is our top-most priority—even when they are traveling between home and school.

As students become more comfortable about walking or riding bikes between school and home, we want to be sure they stay alert and safe. Please talk to your child about how to stay safe while traveling to and from school.

Some suggested reminders are:

1.    If possible, don’t walk or ride alone.

Parents and planners ask: When will the NEXT school year start?

We know that many families want to plan summer vacations that won't conflict with the start of school. Although the full 2019-20 school year calendar is not yet official, we have determined that students will start school during the week of August 19, 2019. The exact date within that week will be determined by Governing Board action at next month's meeting, on March 7th. 

As you plan ahead, please bear in mind that our schools also schedule middle school orientations and kindergarten "round ups" in the days…

Hopefully, your children have told you about the assembly that we had on Chinese New Year’s Day. San Francisco children’s author Oliver Chin visited to talk to our TK to third graders about the books he has written and other books that he has published. 

Mr. Chin read his book entitled The Year of the Pig in honor of the current year according to the Chinese zodiac. Our thanks to Hicklebee’s Bookstore for providing this free assembly and to Ann Steele for coordinating it. 

If Hicklebee’s is a place that you shop for books, please mention Marshall Lane when you are…

Lawrence Hall of Science Assembly

 

In addition to the author assembly, our wonderful PTA sponsored two Lawrence Hall of Science Assemblies—one for TK to 2ndgrades and the other for 3rdto 5thgrade students. The topic was “Solids, Liquids, & Gas”. The presenter performed a variety of thrilling experiments to provide our students with information about the states of matter. The students were very excited about this assembly. Thanks to all of you who support our PTA to enable them to provide high quality assemblies for our students.
