Due to COVID- School is in session but school campuses are closed. To ensure the health and safety of our staff, you and your family, we are asking that school business be handled viz phone, electronic communication, or video conferencing. We understand that sometimes these means of communicating will not be what we need. In those situations, we ask that families call or email to schedule an in person appointment. Even though campuses are closed, we are “here” to support you. Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. As always, we appreciate your support of your student(s), our teachers, and our school.

OUR MASCOTleopard picture

The leopard is so strong and comfortable in trees that it often hauls its kills into the branches. By dragging the bodies of large animals aloft it hopes to keep them safe from scavengers such as hyenas. Leopards can also hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a deadly pounce. These nocturnal predators also stalk antelope, deer, and pigs by stealthy movements in the tall grass. When human settlements are present, leopards often attack dogs and, occasionally, people.

Leopards are strong swimmers and very much at home in the water, where they sometimes eat fish or crabs.

Female leopards can give birth at any time of the year. They usually have two grayish cubs with barely visible spots. The mother hides her cubs and moves them from one safe location to the next until they are old enough to begin playing and learning to hunt. Cubs live with their mothers for about two years—otherwise, leopards are solitary animals.

Most leopards are light colored with distinctive dark spots that are called rosettes, because they resemble the shape of a rose.


If it is not RIGHT, I will not do it.

If it is not MINE, I will not take it.

If it is not TRUE, I will not say it.

I will be KIND.

I will be SAFE.

I will RESPECT people and property.

I will DO MY BEST at all times!

Know Your Educational Rights

This is a resource from the office of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, find more information and resources here: https://www.oag.ca.gov/bcj

Your Child has the Right to a Free Public Education
  • All children in the United States have a Constitutional right to equal access to free public education, regardless of immigration status and regardless of the immigration status of the students’ parents or guardians.
  • In California:
    • All children have the right to a free public education.
    • All children ages 6 to 18 years must be enrolled in school.
      • All students and staff have the right to attend safe, secure, and peaceful schools.
      • All students have a right to be in a public school learning environment free from discrimination, harassment, bullying, violence, and intimidation.
      • All students have equal opportunity to participate in any program or activity offered by the school, and cannot be discriminated against based on their race, nationality, gender, religion, or immigration status, among other characteristics.
Information Required for School Enrollment
  • When enrolling a child, schools must accept a variety of documents from the student’s parent or guardian to demonstrate proof of child’s age or residency.
  • You never have to provide information about citizenship/immigration status to have your child enrolled in school. Also, you never have to provide a Social Security number to have your child enrolled in school.
Confidentiality of Personal Information
  • Federal and state laws protect student education records and personal information. These laws generally require that schools get written consent from parents or guardians before releasing student information, unless the release of information is for educational purposes, is already public, or is in response to a court order or subpoena.
  • Some schools collect and provide publicly basic student “directory information.” If they do, then each year, your child’s school district must provide parents/guardians with written notice of the school’s directory information policy, and let you know of your option to refuse release of your child’s information in the directory.
Family Safety Plans if You Are Detained or Deported
  • You have the option to provide your child’s school with emergency contact information, including the information of secondary contacts, to identify a trusted adult guardian who can care for your child in the event you are detained or deported.
  • You have the option to complete a Caregiver’s Authorization Affidavit or a Petition for Appointment of Temporary Guardian of the Person, which may enable a trusted adult the authority to make educational and medical decisions for your child.
Right to File a Complaint
  • Your child has the right to report a hate crime or file a complaint to the school district if he or she is discriminated against, harassed, intimidated, or bullied on the basis of his or her actual or perceived nationality, ethnicity, or immigration status.
