Welcome Letter August 2018 from Ms. Hernandez, Principal

Dear Parents/ Guardians:

                                                                                  

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year to the continuing Huntington Drive families and a special welcome to all our new Huntington Drive families! I hope you are having a wonderful summer with family and ­­­­­­­­­friends and are preparing to start another memorable school year. I look forward to continue working side by side you and having you get involved in our school. Working together not only will lead to meeting Huntington Drive’s Mission of All students to progress in reading, writing and math, but in addition to maintain a safe learning environment. Our statewide test, SBAC, scores indicated that we grew 24% in Language Arts and 29% in Math.  Congratulations to us all, students, parents, teachers and staff.  Let’s work together in the most important job of preparing your children, our students, to be college prepared and career ready.

 

This letter contains important information to look over and be familiar with as the start of the school draws near. Please take some time to go over the appropriate information with your child to ensure everyone’s safety and to protect instructional time.

 

Instruction:

  • Students need to come to school on time every day, and with homework completed.
  • Students need to be prepared daily with materials needed for learning.
  • Students need to read at home in addition to assigned homework for a minimum of 30 minutes daily.
  • Students need to have access to a quiet place to do homework and daily reading.

Safety:

  • Students must enter through the Main Gate on Topaz between the lower parking lot and the

Pre-kinder yard.Students nor adults are not allowed to enter through the parking lots.

  • Gates open at 7:15 a.m. with supervision.There is no supervision before 7:15, therefore students are not allowed on campus before 7:15.
  • Parents must enter the Topaz Gate between the lower parking lot and the Pre-kinder yard.
  • Parents must get a Visitor’s Pass.
  • Parents must report to the Office for school business or to request to see a teacher.
  • Parents will be able to see a teacher before the 8:01 a.m. bell rings, or afterschool, during recess or lunch with prior teacher approval.Please do not go directly to the classroom.

We are a Closed Campus and will continue to implement the District’s Closed Campus and Visitor Policies.However, parents will be allowed to enter the campus on August 14th – 17th to get to know the established routines and ease any worry about your child’s safety.Starting August 20, 2018, parents/guardians must stay outside the gate to allow students to enter on their own.Only parents with special situations, will be allowed on campus with an approved pass that must be visible when entering the campus. Unauthorized visitors without school business will be asked to leave campus.Our policies follow the laws of the state of California and are imposed to ensure that students’ educational programs and safety are protected.

 

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 is the first day of school and our BACK to SCHOOL event for parents.  The Local School Leadership Council composed of parents, teachers, staff and administrator decided to have this event day one so parents to get valuable information to support you’re their child’s academic program from day one.

Please drop off students at the entrance gates on Topaz Street after 7:15 or the tunnel gate on Huntington Drive after 7:30 a.m. and not before since yard supervision does not begin until 7:15 a.m. Gates will be locked promptly when the instruction bell rings at 8:06 a.m. The gate on Topaz Street remains open for school business. If you need to be on campus for any reason after the bell rings, please sign-in at the entrance gate, obtain a Visitor’s Pass and walk to the office to finalize the sign-in process.  

 

We are after continuing the Breakfast in the Classroom Program, therefore all students will be served breakfast in their classroom at the beginning of the day.
