1st Day of School

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM 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:

REASONS FOR KEEPING YOUR CHILD HOME:

~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) 673-3967.

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

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
As this school year comes to a close, I want to thank each one of you for allowing me to serve as your Principal. Turtleback is full of kindness, collaboration and support for one another. I feel privileged to be a part of this community.

I wish you all a safe and happy summer. I look forward to August and a new school year of working together to ensure the best possible education for all our students.

Enjoy your summer!

YEARBOOKS
The PTA still has some yearbooks available for purchase. We will be selling them afterschool at 2:30pm on Monday, June 9th. We will be located at the front of the school. We only have 20 yearbooks left to sell, don't miss your opportunity to preserve your child's memories. The yearbooks are $35.

LOST AND FOUND
Please take a moment to stop by and reclaim any of your child’s items that you may have lost. All items left on June 12th will be donated.

FOOD AND NUTRITION PRICE INCREASE
The Board of Education unanimously approved a 25 cent increase in school meal prices beginning July 1, 2014. The new price of elementary school lunches will be $2.75 per meal, effective August 20, 2014. Students who qualify for free and reduced meal prices will not be affected by the meal price increases.
