  •   Please Remember Your ID

    When coming to sign a student out of school early for any reason please remember we will always ask to see a picture ID. The person signing out must be a parent or guardian. If someone other than the parent/guardian is picking your student up early, they need to be on the emergency list and the parent/guardian will need to call the school and give verbal consent. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping your student safe and following Poway Unified School District policy.

We have begun a newdrop-off policy to encourage less class time interruptions.For lunches, snacks or water bottles:  Please tell your students to check in the office at the start of their recess time.  If they have not come for it, we will then call them to pick the item up. For late homework, we will no longer call classrooms and we will email the teacher for the student to pick up. Afternoon phone calls to relay messages regarding pick-up plans or reminders for afterschool activities. Please relay these messages to students before school starts or send a note with the student to remind them in order to limit the amount of class disruptions.   The new drop off policy is now in place.  Please take the steps to ensure students have what they need for their school day before being dropped off for school.

    1. You’re the Driver of the Bus.
    2. Desire, Vision and Focus move your bus in the right direction.
    3. Fuel your Ride with Positive Energy.
    4. Invite People on Your Bus and Share your Vision for the Road Ahead.
    5. Don’t Waste Your Energy on those who don’t get on your Bus.
    6. Post a Sign that says  “No Energy Vampires Allowed” on your Bus.
    7. Enthusiasm attracts more Passengers and Energizes them  during the Ride.
