FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
This year’s CAASPP testing cycle will start for all students in grades 3-5 on May 1, 2017 and conclude May 12, 2017 with make ups. All testing will be done in the classroom using students’ laptops. It is very important students have a good breakfast and arrive to school in a timely manner so they can do their best on the assessment. Students will be taking the ELA portion of the test the first week and math component the second week. 5th graders will take the Science Assessment May 11, 2017. Parents, it is very important that students do not miss school during this time period. If at all possible, please schedule appointments outside of school hours or after lunch.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Tom Jones, principal

WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS MONTH!
Please call in all absences to the attendance line.
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.
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.
A quick update regarding our policy on volunteers and visitors. All volunteers must be fingerprinted and TB tested in order to work on the Timber Point campus. Visitors, however, do not require fingerprint clearance and TB testing. It is then important to distinguish the difference between the two, which is probably most efficiently done by stating visitors on campus are here to observe a performance of some sort or have lunch with their child. There are also times when our gates are open indicating an open campus allowing visitors access to an activity such as Brown Bag Lunch or Fun Run. Classroom feasts or parties are not considered performances or open campus activities and so your presence is classified as a volunteer – this then requires fingerprint clearance and TB test. In conclusion, the staff at Timber Point and all our students love having volunteers and visitors – hope to see you all throughout the school year.
