~ IMPORTANT NOTES & REMINDERS ~
*AFTER SCHOOL PICK-UP ~ Plan to pick up your child(ren) by 3:00 p.m. every day.
Half- days are 11:30 a.m. If you are unable to pick up your child by 3:10 p.m. (or 11:40 a.m. on half-days), your child(ren) will automatically be sent to Calvary Club and you will be held responsible for any charges.
*HOT LUNCH ~ Hot Lunch is on Friday, full-days only. Hot lunch MUST be ordered no later than Tuesday, 12:00 noon, before the Friday Hot Lunch is served. If you child brings money the day of hot lunch, your child may not be guaranteed a "Friday Hot Lunch." Students who paid and signed up ahead of time will be served first. Click on the blue Hot Lunch Menu to download a menu HOT LUNCH MENU (Sept - Dec, 2016)
*SNACK TABLE ~ There is a snack table at the every Friday Hot Lunch table. Each item is .25 cents and there is a limit of two (2) items per student. We have items like cookies, fruit snacks, string cheese, pretzel, beef jerky, pickles and more.
*CLS IS A PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE SCHOOL CAMPUS ~ We have several students who are extremely sensitive to any and all peanut/tree nut products and this is very dangerous to their health and well-being. Some students could even have such a severe reaction to nuts that it becomes life-threatening. Please do not send your child to school with any snacks or lunches that have peanuts or are from a nut type tree. These types of snacks and lunches might be reserved for something special, like a special treat at home.
*BE ON TIME/PUNCTUALITY ~ It is important for all of our children to learn that getting to school on time, turning in assignments thoroughly completed and within the allotted days, and always being prepared are not only vital for school but important elements of success as an adult.
*REST & NUTRITION ~ Make sure your child gets adequate rest every night and a nourishing breakfast each morning. Your child needs a good fruit break and lunch each day. Please do not send soft drinks or sugary treats.
*LOST & FOUND ~ Please check the Lost & Found bin and recover your child's clothes, or other valuables. Please write the name of your child/student on clothes and valuables in case they get misplaced. If the name is on the item, we can often return it to its owner. **Clothing items not recover at the end of each quarter are being donated.
the California Department of Public Health
and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
To keep your school as healthy as possible this year, please promote flu vaccine among your students and staff. The California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly recommend flu vaccine each fall for everyone 6 months of age and older.
Getting vaccinated is easy:
Contact your doctor, nurse, clinic, or pharmacy, and ask if they stock flu vaccine
Many local health departments offer low or no cost flu immunizations
If you feel your child is sick or might be sick, we ask you to please
keep them at home. If your child's temperature is 99.8 or higher, it is considered a low-grade temperature. Please keep your child at home as whatever you child has is now considered contagious.
A child must be FEVER FREE (NO fever), no diarrhea, and no vomiting, WITHOUT any medication (i.e. Acetaminophen/Tylenol, Ibuprofen/Motrin) in their system for at least 24 hours before they can return to school.
MAKE HAND-WASHING A HABIT ~ Kids who wash their hands at least four times a day have a 24 percent fewer sick days from colds and flue, and 51 percent fewer sick days due to stomach illnesses (Amer Public Hlth Assoc).
Teach kids to scrub their whole hands - up to the wrists and under the fingernails - and to do it long enough to sing the ABCs or "Happy Birthday" all the way through. A timer works well, too.
