IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: Tracy Unified School District is aware of and is monitoring recent social media posts and rumors warning that clowns will show up at schools threatening to do harm.  Officer Kami Ysit of Tracy Police Department has confirmed that there have been no reported threats to the Tracy area at this time, however she encourages anyone to report all suspicious people or circumstances to the Tracy Police Department.
While no threats have been received in the Tracy area, we are working with local law enforcement and continue to monitor activity closely. These types of behaviors and claims are disruptive to a school’s learning environment and the broader community. We encourage parents to speak with their students about the risks and consequences for any potential involvement in these social media posts.
We want to remind our families that threats are not jokes. Threats are considered a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment. In addition to criminal punishment, students who make false threats will be referred for expulsion from school. Also, school days lost due to closures from school threats may be required to be added to the end of the school year.
In the event of any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact the Tracy Police Department at (209) 831-6550. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for helping us keep our schools and our community safe.

Willow Community Day School (CDS) was established by the Tracy Unified School District as an alternative placement for students who are not succeeding at their home school.  Students attending Willow CDS are given the opportunity to succeed academically and behaviorally in a small classroom setting. Willow CDS has a  20 to one student to teacher ratio. Students at Willow CDS receive the same academic courses, including physical education, as students in other District schools.  Students who are placed at Willow CDS are evaluated to determine their current academic skill level. Students are then placed appropriately with Willow CDS teachers so they can focus on each student's needs.  Students are taught basic study skills to help fill in the gaps-in-learning that may have occurred prior to being enrolled in Willow CDS.  Positive student behavior is a must for students attending Willow CDS. Students are provided counseling and training in positive behavior to help them learn to react to situations in a positive and constructive manner. Willow CDS encourages parental involvement and considers parent/guardian student support as crucial to each student's long term success.
