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.

Intra-District Transfer Information and Deadlines
For More Information Visit Student Services

To:     Tracy Unified School District Community Members
From: Dr. Brian Stephens, Superintendent
Date:  October 1, 2017
RE:     Intradistrict Transfers (BP 5116.1 and AR 5116.1)
Dear TUSD community members. The Governing Board desires to provide enrollment options that meet the diverse needs and interests of district students and parents/guardians, while also maximizing the efficient use of district facilities (BP 5116.1). The Board of Trustees also desires to provide options for schools of choice dependent upon space available. The parents/guardians of any student who resides within district boundaries may apply to enroll their child in any district school, regardless of the location of residence within the district. (Education Code 35160.5).
In that effort this letter provides a list of schools which may have space available for additional students for the 2018-2019 school year. A list of those schools and open enrollment applications shall be available at each school site, the district office and on the district’s website.
Schools that may have space available for additional students for the 2018-2019 school year include the following:
Bohn Elementary         North K-8                  Kimball High
Central Elementary      Monte Vista Middle   West High
Hirsch Elementary       Williams Middle
Jacobson Elementary                         
McKinley Elementary
Southwest Park Elementary
Villalovoz Elementary
Please note that open enrollment for intradistrict transfers is between October 15, 2017 and January 15, 2018.
Transfers for high school special programs are included in the above timeline. Although Tracy High School is not on the list for open enrollment, applications for special programs will still be accepted. Any intradistrict transfer requests received from the Academy or Program Coordinator will be processed by the District.


Dear Jaguar Families,
The school year is off to a great start! Thank you to all of the families who attended Back to School Night.  It was very nice to meet our new families, and welcome back returning Jaguars.  Our goal at Jacobson is to help your child grow in and out of the classroom.  It is important that we help our children learn the strategies they need to be successful in the classroom, as well as in life.  At Jacobson we believe that every child can succeed with the right tools, support and instruction. We are here to work together with you, and ensure our children’s growth. In order to accomplish these goals, I ask for your support by sending your child to school every day on time,  encouraging him/her to read for pleasure at least 30 minutes every night, and monitoring homework and progress. Asking your child to share what they learned at school each day helps promote communication within the family. 
Please note our volunteer policy has changed. In order to go on any fieldtrip or attend any classroom event such as class party , volunteers will have to go through the Volunteer Application process.  There will no longer be the one-time allowance.  I encourage every parent to fill out the Volunteer Application. Parent participation at Jacobson Elementary is vital.  We could not possibly go on educational  fieldtrips or have class events without parent support.  If you have any questions about the Volunteer Application process please contact our office secretary, Carmine Sousa at 209-830-3315 X7552.  We appreciate and value parent support.  We look forward to partnering  with you and your family this year.  Thank you for a great first month of school!
