- Illness: If your child stays home, please call the school office to inform them. The number is 891-3285. Student homework can be picked up after-school in the office if you call and request homework.
- Tardies: School begins at 8:30 a.m. A student is tardy after 8:30 a.m. if they are not in class when roll is taken. If student is tardy 15 minutes after school begins they must get a note from the office before coming to class.
- Absences other than illness planned during school: I highly encourage you to make sure that your child attends class each school day as there is no way to provided make-up work which will replicate the instruction or the experience of the lesson in class. therefore, please schedule student appointments outside of school hours. If an emergency or some other issue requires your child to be out for a period of five school days for more, please arrange for your child to complete an independent study packet. The independent study process allows our school to recoup lost revenue for your child's absence. Please notify me at least one week in advance if you plan on taking advantage of the independent study option.
- Please notify me via email or a note (voicemail is not a reliable option since messages are retrieved at the end of the day) if your child will be leaving school early due to an appointment or if there is a change in their normal routine (such as being picked up early or riding home with a friend or other family member). For safety reasons, it is very important that I know where the children are headed after school.
- Medicine of any kind (prescription or over the counter) must me administered in the Health Office. The school must have a doctor's note on file for your child to take any form of medication.
- Due to the increase of childhood obesity and diabetes, Chico Unified School District School Board has enacted Policy # 5030 which states that parents and teachers are encouraged to decrease the amount of sweets/treats in classrooms. We are therefore asking parents not to send in cupcakes, cakes, or sweets, etc., to celebrate birthdays. A more unique way to honor your child's birthday might be to donate non-edible items such as pencils, bookmarks, or a book dedicated to your child.
- Birthday party invitations are not to be distributed by students at school. I am happy to insert invitations into homework folders. This will avoid hurt feelings from those not invited and observing their peers receiving Thank you for your support and understanding.
- Please refer to the LCC Behavior and Dress Standards link or the pamphlet included in your first day packet. I have included some items you may wish to review. Spaghetti straps must be at least on inch or wear t-shirts underneath. Sandals must be worn with socks (to protect from bees during P.E. and recess) and have a strap on the back. Hats are not to be worn in the classroom. Sagging, low riding pants and short shorts (lengths shorter than fingertip length when arms are hanging at rest) are not allowed. Any questionable clothing issues will be sent to the office.
- Our snack recess is at 10:05am. Students may have a healthy snack during that time. Suggestions include, fruit, crackers/cheese, yogurt or nuts. No sodas or candy.
- I encourage you to be an active participant in your child's education. You will have many opportunities to fulfill this task throughout the year by volunteering in class, on field trips as well as with special projects and events. Volunteers need to have school paperwork updated annually. You may pick up the paperwork in the office or acces the paperwork utilizing the links to the various forms below:
