WOLF PACK NEWS

FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE

Teachers will soon begin the process of class assignments for the 2016-17 school year. They take the placement of students very seriously. We use a carefully articulated process when placing students. The goal is to provide each teacher with a well-balanced, heterogeneous group of children and to provide each learner with an optimal learning environment. The following are some considerations that are made in placing students:

  • Balance of boys and girls
  • Positive working relationships among students
  • Previous placements of students
  • Social needs of individuals and groups of students
  • Heterogeneous (mixed ability) learning groups in all classrooms
  • Class configurations (size, combination classes, etc.)
  • Special circumstances

Requests for specific teachers will not be accepted. 

However, if you have pertinent information to share regarding your child’s needs, you may do so by submitting a letter or email to me. Thank you for respecting the professional judgment of our staff who work closely with your children and have a vested interest in setting each one up for success.

WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS MONTH!

ATTENDANCE LINE

 

925-809-7551

 

Please call in all absences to the attendance line.

VISITOR/VOLUNTEERS

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.
