IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: Tracy Unified School District is aware of and is monitoring recent social media posts and rumors warning that clowns will show up at schools threatening to do harm.
 Officer Kami Ysit of Tracy Police Department has confirmed that there have been no reported threats to the Tracy area at this time, however she encourages anyone to report all suspicious people or circumstances to the Tracy Police Department.
While no threats have been received in the Tracy area, we are working with local law enforcement and continue to monitor activity closely. These types of behaviors and claims are disruptive to a school’s learning environment and the broader community. We encourage parents to speak with their students about the risks and consequences for any potential involvement in these social media posts.
We want to remind our families that threats are not jokes. Threats are considered a felony, a crime punishable by imprisonment. In addition to criminal punishment, students who make false threats will be referred for expulsion from school. Also, school days lost due to closures from school threats may be required to be added to the end of the school year.
In the event of any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact the Tracy Police Department at (209) 831-6550. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for helping us keep our schools and our community safe.
PARENT PORTAL:  Please make sure you sign up to get onto the Parent Portal to be able to check your student’s grades & attendance.  You are able to see missing assignments & their progress throughout the quarter.  Students are also able to create their own log-in so that they can make sure they have all of their assignments turned in & have received credit for them.

Fall 2016
Autumn Greetings to Parents and Guardians,
School Site Council will need parent members this year. This committee meets after school about every three months to look at our school site budget and programs. If you are interested in throwing your name in the hat, please contact me and I will walk you through the steps.
The end of the first quarter is right around the corner. Soon, it will be time for Parent Conferences (October 17th -21st ). Please watch for information coming home with your child about that very important week. I will also keep you posted and updated with phone messages about conferences and other events taking place.
Hopefully, your child has been talking with you about their classes at school. We are transitioning into Next Generation Science Standards that will build on Life, Earth, and Physical science that was taught in elementary school. By the time your child leaves us after 8th grade, they will be prepared for freshman Integrated Science. Many of our 6th graders are going into the actual science lab to conduct experiments.
Our English Language Arts classes are structured so that each grade level is working on the same standards around the same time frame. We have a group of teachers designing rigorous curriculum to help prepare students for using resources other than a text book as well as learning how to navigate the internet to find and use appropriate information in their assignments.
Please see our posted bulletin for activities that your child can be involved in after school. I believe we have a variety of activities to fit your child’s interests. The teachers who have the after school activities are there as volunteers - how fabulous is that!
I look forward to seeing you at Parent Conferences. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at or call me at 209-830-3345 ext. 5474.
