Don't miss out, every day counts!

Absences late in the school year can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with schoolwork, dealing with a bully, or facing some other potentially serious difficulty.

 

¡No te lo pierdas, todos los días cuentan!

 

Las ausencias al final del año escolar pueden ser una señal de que un estudiante está perdiendo interés en la escuela, luchando con las tareas, lidiando con un agresor o enfrentando alguna otra dificultad potencialmente grave.

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Schools welcome parent and community involvement and schools are often centers for the surrounding community.  However, the main purpose of schools is providing an education to students.  Under the law, schools are not considered open to the public, or a public forum, such as a public park or sidewalk.  Instead, schools are considered a “limited public forum” and may limit public access in accordance with reasonable regulations set by the school.

Oakley Union Elementary School Board policy requires each site to ensure the safety of students and staff and minimize interruption of the instructional program. The school administrator establishes procedures which facilitate visits during regular school days. The policy also states that visits during school hours should be arranged with the principal or designee. This would be for a parent, guardian or other visitors wanting to observe a child or classroom.

In light of the recent school shooting incidences, it is necessary to make Oakley Elementary a more secure campus.  Parents, guardians or other visitors will not be allowed into the cafeteria during breakfast or lunch, the lunch shelters or onto either the pre-school/kinder playground or the large playground unless accompanied by the site administrator or a designee during school hours.  All volunteers coming onto the campus must sign in first and obtain a visitor badge.  Upon leaving, the volunteer or visitor must sign out and return the visitor badge.  Volunteers who have not previously arranged with a teacher to help out in the classroom will not be permitted to stay. 

Pick up and drop off will also be affected.  Students arriving early will enter the cafeteria and then be escorted to the playground by a staff member.  Parents will not be able to wait outside their child’s classroom prior to dismissal.  The Duarte gate entrance is for students only and will be open from 7:45-8:25.  In the afternoon, the Duarte gate will be opened by the teacher and then closed after all students have exited.  All other students will be escorted to the basketball court area for pick-up. 

Many parents and guardians wait at the playground area before and after school.  This will no longer be permitted.  Visitor badges will not be issued for parents who want to watch their child play before school or at the end of the day to watch their child participate in P.E.

Oakley campus does host preschool classes which require the parents to sign their child in and out every day.  They have been issued a preschool badge in order to enter the campus on a daily basis.

These changes will be difficult at first but ultimately assist school personnel in identifying people who do not have a visitor badge and refer them to the office as well as people who do not belong on the campus.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,

Estimados Padres y Tutores,

Las escuelas dan la bienvenida a la participación de los padres y las escuelas generalmente son el centro de la comunidad. Sin embargo, el objetivo principal de la escuela es proporcionar educación  a sus estudiantes.  Según la Ley, las escuelas no se consideran espacios públicos, o foros abiertos al público, como lo son un parque o una acera. Por el contrario, la escuela es considerada un “foro público limitado” y puede permitir o negar acceso de acuerdo con regulaciones razonables establecidas por la escuela.

La política de la Meza Directiva de Educación del Distrito Escolar de la Union Oakley requiere que cada establecimiento asegure y garantice la seguridad de sus estudiantes y del personal administrativo, y limite interrupciones del horario escolar.  El administrador de la escuela establece procedimientos que faciliten las visitas durante días de horario regular. La política también  establece que las visitas durante la jornada sean coordinadas por la directora o personal asignado.  Esto es válido tanto para padres, tutores u otras visitas que deseen observar un salón en sesión o a un estudiante especifico. 

En referencia a los recientes tiroteos cometidos en escuelas del país, es imperante hacer de nuestra escuela primaria Oakley un lugar más seguro. Como medida inmediata  no se permitirá la presencia de los padres, tutores o visitantes en la cafetería durante el desayuno o el almuerzo. Tampoco se permitirán visitantes en las mesas exteriores o en el área de juegos de kínder o en patio general durante horas de clases,  a menos que estén autorizados o acompañados por un empleado o administrador de la escuela.  Todos los voluntarios deben registrarse en la oficina y recibir su distintivo de visitante. Al final de su visita, el voluntario debe regresar su distintivo y firmar la hora de salida. Aquellos voluntarios que no arreglaron autorización previamente por la maestra no serán permitidos en el establecimiento. 

El proceso de recoger y dejar a los estudiantes diariamente también se verá afectado. Los estudiantes que llegan temprano podrán entrar a la cafetería y luego serán escoltados por personal designado al patio de juego. No se permitirá a los padres esperar por sus hijos fuera del salón de clases al momento de salida. La entrada de la calle Duarte es de uso exclusivo para estudiantes y se abrirá la puerta desde las 7:45 am a las 8:25am. A la hora de salida una maestra se encargara de abrir la puerta para facilitar la salida de los estudiantes que salen por esa área y la maestra también será la encargada de cerrar la reja una vez que los niños hayan salido de la escuela.  Todos los otros estudiantes serán escoltados a la cancha de basquetbol al final del día para ser recogidos por los padres.  Muchos padres y tutores esperan a sus hijos en el patio de juegos, ya sea antes o después de clases, sin embargo, esto no será permitido en el futuro. Tampoco se entregaran distintivos de visita a aquellos padres que desean ver jugar a sus niños antes de clases o al final del día en clases de educación física.  La escuela primaria Oakley ofrece clases para niños preescolares y esto requiere que los padres registren a sus hijos diariamente tanto a la hora de entrada como a la salida. Para facilitar este proceso se ha entregado a cada padre o tutor un distintivo que le permite entrar y salir sin tener que firmar diariamente.

Estos cambios serán difíciles al principio, pero son necesarios para ayudar al personal de la escuela a identificar a personas extrañas o que no pertenecen en la escuela. Su apoyo y compresión son altamente valorados y esperamos que con estas medidas evitemos tragedias innecesarias.

Atentamente,

 

Kaylene Merrill, Principal
