Please remember to call in an absence to the attendance line. 925-606-4738, then press 2. Please remember that if your student is out for three or more days, we will need a doctor's note. Also see letter from LVJUSD's Director of Student Services regarding non-excused and excused absences.
Students who have perfect attendance (no absences, no tardies and no early dismissals will receive a perfect attendance award at the end of each trimester.
All students are asked to stay in the playground in the morning where there is supervision. The school bell rings at 8:25 a.m. This bell serves two purposes. The first purpose is middle school students are beginning class. The second purpose is it serves as a warning bell for 1st - 5th grade students. When the bell rings the students will have a chance to use the restroom or get a drink of water before class begins. A whistle will be blown by yard duty and students will line up in the playground area with their class. They will then proceed to walk to class in a quiet manner.

Electronic flyers delivered via peachjar
The paper flyers we have been sending home will now be sent electronically to your inbox. These eflyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button that has been placed on each school’s website homepage. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, it is our belief that this paperless delivery of school flyers will ensure important information gets delivered directly to you in a more efficient manner.
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from the “Peachjar” the service provider that will include a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view eflyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your email contacts. Note: add “email@example.com” to your contact list just as written; DO NOT change it to the name of your school @peachjar.com. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
If you do not receive an email from Peachjar, it could mean your email address is not on file with your school, or there is an error with the address on file. Please see your school office to inquire.
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Thank you for helping us save time, money, and LOTS of trees!

Blue Envelope Program
Each Wednesday the blue plastic "Wednesday Folder" will be sent home with your child. This is an effort to improve communication between the school and home. Look over all the material and return signed forms in the envelope promptly on Thursday morning. It is important envelopes are returned since new information will be placed in the envelopes throughout the week. If your child does not return the envelope, we cannot guarantee you will be provided with timely school information.
The blue envelopes are waterproof and will last all year. Students will be required to have a Home Envelope. Should your child misplace or lose and envelope, you will need to purchase a replacement envelope in the office for a dollar donation.

Before and After School
Parents are asked to remain in the front of the school before/after school. This helps to keep a quiet learning environment for those students who are already in class. We want to have the most productive environment for your child's education. We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to a safe and happy school year.
Show your school spirit by wearing your Joe Michell gear or blue and white. If you are in need of new gear, swing by our store.
