Garden Grove Families,

We had a great start to the new school year.  On Monday August 21st, after the fire drill, we are having a morning assembly about school rules and procedures.

 

All students will have indoor morning recess and snack due to the solar eclipse.  Please remember to reinforce that no one is to look directly at the sun!  Have a nice weekend.

Please continue to follow the parking lot rules for the safety of all students:

  • Only park in visitor spaces in the parking lot.

  • Please DO NOT

      • Let your children out on the other side of the cones unless your child is a special needs student and you are going to personally walk your child to the curb.

      • Park in front of the kindergarten yard and leave your vehicle.  

      • Park behind the handicapped crosswalk; it closes off the flow of traffic.

  • The children are not permitted to run between the parked cars to get to class or to the car.

  • Students may only be picked at the Tracy entrance in front of the cones.  This may seem inconvenient but it is for the safety of ALL the children.

  • Please enter in the driveway closest to the K yard (south side) and exit the other driveway (north side).
