Dear North School Families,
Due to the increase of traffic during the dismissal hours we have set these procedures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. When picking up children at dismissal times, please remember the following:
1.) Vehicles are only allowed to park along the curb or in the driveway 10 minutes before release time. For example, Tuesday students are released at 2:10pm, so vehicles will be allowed to wait along the curb or in the drive way starting at 2:00pm, but not before. PLEASE NOTE- If you have students that are in the upper grades you are not to wait in the line until second dismissal 2:30pm.
2.) Pull ALL the way forward when coming through the pick-up line. We are trying to move as many cars through as quickly as possible to keep traffic flowing.
3.) When exiting the driveway, turning right helps the flow of traffic. If you turn right exiting the driveway. By taking this route YOU will help the flow of traffic and avoid possible accidents.
4.) Obey the rules of the road…we have requested an increase in Tracy Police Department’s presence. It is illegal to cross without using the crosswalk (jaywalking), as well as pulling alongside of a parked vehicle to have a child enter into a vehicle. These are all illegal and major safety hazards.
5.) Parents please wait behind the gate. Students are not allowed to run around and play on the front concrete area, or the grass area. Please avoid purchasing any items sold by food vendors to avoid increase congestion of traffic/people.
Staff Parking Lot
The staff parking lot is ONLY for staff and requires a permit to park in this area. Any vehicle parked in this area without a permit will be cited or towed by city officials. To ensure safety, our parking lot is monitored by the Tracy Police Department.
We appreciate and thank you in advance for following our dismissal procedures. This will help keep everyone safe at North School.

Super study skills
A child who knows when,
what, and how to study is
more likely to be ready for a
quiz or test—and will learn
more. Help your youngster
get prepared with these tips.
Your child will learn the
most toward the beginning of
study time, when her mind is
fresh. Have her plan several short study
sessions as soon as her teacher announces
a test. Working at a comfortable pace will
help her remember more and stay motivated.
Tip: Suggest that older children
split study sessions in half, taking a break
to eat a snack or ride a bike.
Students can make the most of study
time by knowing what will be on a test.
If your youngster isn’t sure what will
be covered, she should ask her teacher.
Before she studies, you might give her a
“pre-test” so she can see what she needs
to focus on. For example, if she correctly
defines 6 of her 20 vocabulary words,
she can spend her time on the other 14.
Explain to your child that studying is
more than just reading—she should
“actively” study. That way, she’ll really
learn the material rather than simply
memorizing it for a test. As she goes over
class notes or handouts, she can highlight
important points. While reviewing
her textbook, she might draw pictures or
diagrams. Or she could record herself
asking questions and then play them
back, pausing the recorder to give the
answers. Finally, quiz her on the material
after she has studied.♥
