 WHAT'S HAPPENING

 

Announcements and Events 

 
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.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
 
 
Dear Jacobson Families,
Thank you for the great turnout for our Open House!  This has been the largest group of families in attendance we’ve had in a very long time.  Thank you also for supporting our Book Fair. The library was jam-packed with families buying books.  I can’t think of a better way to spend money than purchasing books for your child to read.  Our Student Author Fair was also the largest we’ve had in several years, and it was nice to see the excitement the children showed when receiving their free book.
I can’t believe we’re already in our last month of the school year!  This has been a very busy but fun-filled year.  We have recognized students for good character, focusing upon trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and this month, citizenship.  I am proud of the hard work the students have displayed as they learned new skills this year, as well as the hard work and time the teachers have put into their lesson plans.  During the last month of school, fifth grade students will complete the Smarter-Balanced Assessments.  All students will take District assessments to ensure they are ready to move on to the next grade level.  Please continue to support your child by having him or her at school on time each day and make sure they get a good night’s sleep.
Sincerely,
Cindy Sasser
Principal
