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.

Universal Breakfast Program  

Jacobson has a universal breakfast program where every child has the opportunity for a free breakfast.
Student Lunch Dropoff 
If you are dropping off lunch for a student, we ask that all lunches are in the office by 11:15 a.m. regardless
of the grade level. We have a pen/post-it for you to mark your Childs lunch. We tell all the students that if
 you do not have a lunch, please check the office on your way to the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms
to let them know there is a lunch in the office.
Arrival/Dismissal Car Line
At dismissal, all students will proceed through the front gates to the car line up. All bus students will report

to the side of the school (Camilia Drive) where the bus pick-up is. Students are not allowed to be picked up

on the side of the school. 

  • We are asking parents of 3:00 p.m. students to please wait until 2:50 p.m. to enter the car pick-up line.
  • This gives the parents of 2:30 dismissal time to pick up their students.
  • We are asking kindergarten PM parents to please wait until 3:10 p.m. before getting in the car pick-up
  •  line, so that our 3:00 pm students can be picked up.

If cars are in line before their time and during dismissal, it causes a major back up.

Dear Parents and Jacobson Community,
It is truly is a pleasure being able to work with children and teachers every day. Being a parent myself,  I approach each child as if they are my own and work alongside our teachers and yourselves to ensure our children are safe, successful and good citizens.  I am a firm believer that the success of our children depends heavily on the positive relationship between home and school. When students see us working together it gives them since of belonging and the security to try their best.  To ensure our students are successful, communication is key from both sides.  Please be sure to get to know your child’s teacher and give them all possible ways of communicating with you.  Our children’s success depends on it.  I encourage all parents to get involved with our Jacobson Staff Parent Association.  This is just another way for the school and community to partner.
We are here to assist in any manner possible.  Please feel free to stop by, say hello and provide your input.  We believe that a successful school experience can only result from a cooperative effort between you, your child, the Tracy community, and our school.  We need your support and pledge you ours.  We look forward to an exciting and successful school year.
