 WHAT'S HAPPENING

 

Announcements and Events

This September Jacobson is celebrating Attendance Awareness Month with a renewed push to get all kids to school—on time, every day.  Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days a month. And that can add up before you know it.  Research shows that absences add up.  So this September, for Attendance Awareness Month, let’s work together as a community –to get all kids to school – on time, every day.

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.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
 
September 2015
 
Dear Parents and Jacobson Community,
It has been a pleasure getting know our Jacobson families and students.  Thank you to those of you who were able to attend Back to School Night..  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.
