Rainy Day Procedures for Kindergarten

Kindergarten parents:

In the event that it is sprinkling/raining before your child begins school, please do not have your child line up on the playground.  Please walk your child to the front of the kindergarten classrooms (Growing Room parking lot).  The teachers will have their classroom doors open so your child can enter.

 

Thank you,

We will leave promptly at 9:30am, so please have your child at school at 9:15am. We will travel by school bus. We will arrive back at school in time for dismissal at 12:45pm.

Primo's Run for Education

Kindergarten would like to have our classes walk in the Primo’s 5k Fun Run for Education on Sunday, Oct. 16th.  We would love to have as many kinders from HH walk with the teachers!  The race starts at 8:30AM.  We will meet in front or near the fire station.  Please wear your HH class shirt.  Any student that is walking will need to have an adult. All siblings are welcome, even those in strollers. We look forward to a fun family event which has been a 33 year tradition and is the largest run for education in Northern California. It’s a great community event and a wonderful opportunity to help support public education in the San Ramon Valley!

Tardy Procedure

We believe that tardies will be significantly reduced by planning on arriving to school well before the bell rings.  Whether you are dropping your child off or he/she is walking to school, please help us in addressing this problem by having your student arrive on time.  If your child is not inside the kindergarten gates and in line by 8:15AM, for the AM friends or 11:40 for the PM friends when the bell rings, they will be considered late.  All gates to the kindergarten play yard will also be closed.  If you arrive late, and the gates are closed, you will need to walk your child to the front office to receive a tardy slip.  Please do not try to enter through the child’s classroom door as it will disrupt classroom learning.  Students will not be admitted into class without a tardy slip. 

 

As we are concerned about your child’s safety, if you know you are tardy please do not send your child to the play yard unattended as the gates will be locked and there will be no playground supervision once class has started.  Children that arrive late will be kept in the front office for a few minutes and walked back to class by a staff member as our gates to the play yard will be closed.

 

Please make every effort to have your child at school on time.  Arriving on time supports our classroom learning and eliminates classroom disruption.  We appreciate your help with this matter.

 

 Sincerely,

The Kindergarten Team 

IMPORTANT TRAFFIC LAWS:

Parking is PROHIBITED on Albion Way. The San Ramon Police Department will be enforcing and ticketing any vehicle parked on Albion Way. Signs are posted and it is a danger to our children when cars are parked in the bike lane.

 

Please follow all posted traffic signs around the campus. Police will ticket for illegal left/right turns around the school during the posted hours. 

 

DO NOT park across the street and walk towards Hidden Hills without a crosswalk. This is considered jaywalking, is not safe and SRPD will ticket for this as well.  

Volunteer Clearance

All those wanting to be a Volunteer and/or Driver and/or Overnight Chaperone must apply to do so online, via Be A Mentor’s website. It is of the utmost importance to have our parents/family members begin the application process immediately. This is a one-time application process. Once you are cleared, you will not have to apply again during the remainder of your student(s) school years at SRVUSD.

 

Please submit your Volunteer clearance application ASAP in order to be considered as a chaperone for field trips and classroom volunteers.
