Car Line and Being Good Neighbors...
          I would like to thank everyone for your support with picking up and dropping off students.  The car line seems to be running pretty smoothly in the afternoon.  The average wait time for parents in the walk-up line has been 5 to 6 mins.  and we have been averaging 13-14 mins.  to load all of our students into cars.  That’s pretty fast considering we have over 550 students in the school!
          We are, however, having trouble with students being picked up at the back gate.  We have a growing number of parents who are using the back gate to drop off and pick up students.  This is causing major headaches for our neighbors in the back of the school.  Several of our parents are regularly blocking driveways when people are trying to leave for work.  Traffic in the morning and afternoon has become a major issue with people not following traffic laws and being rude and disrespectful to the people living in the neighborhood.   This is not okay.  The back gate is NOT an acceptable place to drop off and pick up your children.  The back gate is strictly for those students who live in that neighborhood.  Please do NOT drop off and pick up your students at the back gate; use the car line in front of the school.  It goes quickly and we have supervision to ensure students get into and out of cars safely and quickly.   Thank you for being respectful of our neighbors and making sure dropping off and picking up students goes smoothly!

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.
 
 
 

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Hello Poet Families! 

       The First Trimester is coming to an end and we are gearing up for Parent Conferences.  Parent Conferences will take place during the week of Oct. 23rd-27th.    It sounds like a long way off, but it is really just a few short weeks away!  Parent Conferences are an opportunity for parents and teachers to sit down to discuss a child’s progress.  It is critical for parents and teachers to meet to discuss how a student is doing and to come up with a plan for those that may need extra help and support.  Every child is different and requires their own plan for success.  It is also a time to celebrate success students are having and to focus on continuing their growth in school both academically and behaviorally.  It takes a commitment from teachers, parents, and students to successfully educate a child and the conferences are a critical part of this process. 
 
Conference Sign-Ups:  Conference sign-up sheets are posted in our office hallway.  They will be available through Friday, Oct. 6th.  Parents who do not sign up will be assigned a conference time.  Don’t wait to sign up!  Middle School conferences will be held on a drop-in basis in Rooms 27-28 and you do not need to sign up for a specific time.  More information will be going home with students about Middle School conferences!
