Roadrunner Folders ~Home/School Communication
Every Wednesday, your child will be given a 'Purple Folder' to take home. Inside you will find important communication from the school, corrected papers, forms that need to be completed by a parent, and even fun opportunities for your student and family. Please be sure to ask for the folder, if your child forgets to give it to you. By sending it right back the next day you can be sure to receive all communications that are sent on the next Wednesday.

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.
 
SCHOOL LUNCHES
 

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE      
Research shows attendance is key to school success. Students that miss school even if it’s only one or two days a month are below grade level and tend to struggle academically for the rest of their education. Leaving school early is another form of missing school. Help us ensure your children come to school every day and participate fully.  Do not schedule doctor appointments or other activities that require your children to miss school or be picked up early from school.  Not only does your child miss school when they leave early, but the classroom is interrupted for a few minutes, which impacts the entire classroom and not just one child.  We see an increase of students leaving early on Friday’s and several interruptions occurring during the day.  Please help us by not picking up your children early from school and making all after school arrangements prior to arriving to school.  With over 850 students and many parents calling to ask to give messages to children, several classrooms are interrupted. We will not be interrupting classrooms for messages. Please make those arrangements from home to give full classroom time for teachers and students without interruptions to maximize their instructional minutes. Thank you for your cooperation and support to our school.

Las investigaciones muestran que la asistencia es la llave para el éxito escolar. Los estudiantes que faltan a la escuela, aunque sea por uno o dos días al mes, se encuentran por debajo del nivel de grado, y en general tienen más problemas académicos por el resto de su educación.
Dejar la escuela temprano es otra forma de faltar. Ayúdenos asegurándose que su hijo asista diariamente y de que participe plenamente. No agende citas con doctores o planee alguna otra actividad, la cual requiera que su hijo falte a la escuela o que tenga que irse temprano. No es sólo su hijo el que pierde clases al irse temprano, sino que al interrumpir por algunos minutos, se impacta al grupo completo. Vemos un incremento en el número de estudiantes que se van temprano los viernes y por lo tanto, hay varias interrupciones durante el día. Por favor ayúdenos no recogiendo a sus hijos temprano y también haciendo los arreglos necesarios y planes para después de clases antes de llegar a la escuela. Con más de 850 alumnos y muchos padres de familia llamando para dejar mensajes, las interrupciones a varios salones de clases son constantes. Lo sentimos, pero no interrumpiremos más a las maestras. Es necesario maximizar los minutos de instrucción. Gracias por su cooperación y apoyo a nuestra escuela.
