All visitors to our campus must check in through the Administration Office at the front of the school.


Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:


~Illness during the night
~Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
~Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
~Development of a rash on face and/or body
~Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
~Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them

Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 485-0042 x4202.

Homework can also be requested on this phone message, please indicate when you will be picking it up.

Dear Chaparral Families,

I'm Earl Scull and I'm pleased to have the opportunity to introduce myself and let you know that I'll be the interim principal here at Chaparral through the end of this school year.  Before retiring I spent many years as the principal of four other Poway elementary schools and I knew well the reputation of the Chaparral school community.  My first week here only confirmed the many good things I've heard.  My role over the next seven months will be to maintain what is an excellent school, contribute what I can, and then facilitate a seamless transition to the new principal who should be appointed at the end of the school year.

I'll try hard to be visible and available when I'm on campus so if you ever want to talk please feel comfortable about approaching me or if you prefer, contact Yoenda in the office for an appointment.

I'm looking forward to a great rest of the year, 


Earl Scull
