News from Ms. Hernandez, Principal

 

Make school a priority!

 

 

Every absence (excused or not), can impact a child’s academic achievement. Talk to your child about how important their education is. Make daily routines for homework and waking up on time for school.

 

Chronic absenteeism is described as missing 10% or more of the school year, this includes excused and unexcused absences and tardies over 30 minutes. At this point if your child has missed 2 days of school or 30 + minute tardies totaling 2 days, they are characterized as chronically absent.

We do understand there are a few exceptions for medical reasons but it is important to understand the impact absences and tardies have on your child’s education.

If you have questions or concerns, I am available via email at shernandez@gousd.org or by calling the school office to schedule an appointment.

 

Thank you to all our parents/guardians and students who are being extra cautious and considerate during our morning drop off and afternoon pick up schedules. In case you missed the previous outline, here are a few helpful hints.

  • Drop off/Pick up – When pulling to the curb, pull up to the cross walk, remain in your car, your child must enter and exit the car on the curb side.
  • Parking – after you have parked in the lower parking lot use the crosswalk to walk to and from your parked car. For the safety of your child, and yourself, avoid weaving in and out of traffic as you walk to the crosswalk.

 

Watch D.O.G.S

(Dads Of Great Students) ... is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. There are two primary goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program.

1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

    

     Please take a look at the school website for upcoming points of interest. It is informative as to which days are open and which to avoid; e.g. observed holidays and school breaks, etc. Just know that the moments you spend encouraging and supporting a positive atmosphere is as exciting to your students as any event. 

 

Dads - if you signed up last year, no additional paperwork is required!  Just get on our calendar!! We look forward to seeing you soon!!

   

We have provided the ability for you to add the day(s) you would like to volunteer to our Watch D.O.G.S. calendar by going to this link:
