LCAP Review of Plan
Each school within Tracy Unified School District is required to share with the school community, our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The draft of this plan describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions Tracy Unified will take to achieve the goals.
The LCAP focuses on eight areas identified as state priorities.  The plan will demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and asses each year how the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
If you are interested in seeing the district’s vision for year 1, you are invited to look at the draft of the plan and provide input.  Please join us on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 3:30 in Jacobson’s conference room.

Universal Breakfast Program  

Jacobson has a universal breakfast program where every child has the opportunity for a free breakfast. Breakfast starts at 7:55 a.m. for kindergartners and 8:05 a.m. for grades 1-5. There is no cost for this 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.
