FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year at Timber Point
A student will have perfect attendance when he/she:
a. arrives on time every day – no tardy (for any reason)
b. is at school all day - not on independent studies (for any reason)
c. leaves at the end of their school day – no early check out (for any reason)
d. present 180 school days (this year – only - I will start this new policy on September 12 – all students will have a clean slate (Perfect Attendance) on Monday – I think that’s only fair to start this new policy change after you have learned of it.)
WOLF PACK NEWS
We are in need of parent helpers for the Fall Book Fair!!
The Book Fair will be open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday during conferences next week. We need volunteers to run the cash registers and well as man the doors.
The fall and spring book fairs are the only fundraisers for the library. They enable us to purchase many new books each month. They also fund prizes for schoolwide AR challenges, such as the end of the year ice cream party we had last June.
We’ve had wonderful support in the past and are looking forward to another successful book fair next week.
Please sign up to help out on the google doc below.
Thank you!! J

Have you signed on to your Schoology parent account yet? Beginning later this year we will be posting all communications there, instead of sending emails. Make sure you are signed up so you don’t miss out! Ask your child’s teacher if you need more information.
WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS MONTH!
Please call in all absences to the attendance line.
ALL Visitor/Volunteers MUST go through the office to sign in and get a sticker before entering the campus.
Effective January 1, 2015, the Byron Union School District Board of Trustees will begin implementing board policies: AR1240, CF 4212.5, CF. 3515.5, (Ed code 45106, 45347, 45349, 49406), policy on the requirements for our parent volunteers and parent drivers.
All classroom volunteers, and all drivers and chaperones on field trips will now have to have fingerprint clearance as well as a current Tuberculosis (TB) test.
If you have had a TB test within the last 4 years and can provide the negative reading, you may use these results. If you have a fingerprint clearance through our district, you do not have to re-submit one, but if you have had a clearance through another agency, it is not transferable and will need to be done again.
STUDENTS LEAVING EARLY
Any student being signed out early MUST exit through the office (this includes early release Wednesday). Parents must meet student in the office to be released. The office cannot call a student out of class until the parent/guardian are present. Thank you for your cooperation.
