Important Announcements:

Dear Monterey Road Parents,

 

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  It is going to be an amazing year at Monterey Road.  I am very excited to begin my experience as principal at MRS and look forward to many extraordinary years in the future.  I feel quite honored to be part of the amazing teamwork that takes place between the principal, teachers and parents at Monterey Road.  Working together and supporting one another is key to ensuring the success of our students.  I am proud to say that the Mustangs are gearing up for the start of the school year!  The teachers are energized and eager to provide quality instruction that meets the needs of all students.  We will continue to work collaboritively during Early Release Fridays as Professional Learning Community to promote the highest quality of educational experience for every child.  Our school's foundation stands on the premise that every child will reach his/her academic potential in a safe and nurturing learning environment.  We are so excited to watch our students grow academically and socially this year! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

 

Warmest Regards,

Julie Davis

Monterey Road Elementary School is now a "California Distinguished School"!:  

 

On May 1st of this year, Tom Torlakson, California State Superintendent of Education, announced that Monterey Road Elementary is now officially a California Distinguished School.

 

Of the 44 elementary schools in this county, only three were recognized as Distinguished.  There are 5,768 elementary schools in our state, serving over three million children, and only 434 were recognized with this award.

 

So now the rest of the state knows what we know:  Monterey Road Elementary School is pretty special.  That means that our staff is special, our kids are special, our facility is 'way beyond special, and our families are the best.

 

Congratulations to all who help make our school distinguished!

Volunteering at School:

Just a reminder, that one of the great ways to impact our school is to volunteer in your child’s classroom. The school district requires all volunteers to be TB tested and Megan’s Law cleared. If you have not done so, stop by the office today and start the process.

 

If you would like to volunteer as a chaperone on field trips, you must be fingerprinted.  For information regarding Live Scan please contact the school office at (805) 462-4270. All fingerprinting must be done through the County Office of Education.  

Oral Health Assessment:

California Law now requires that your child have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by May 31 of their first year in public school.  Assessments that have happened within the 12 months before your child enters school also meet this requirement.  You may pick up the Oral Health Assessment/Waiver Request form in our office. If you cannot take your child for this required assessment, please indicate the reason for this in Section 3 of the form. 
 
To protect the health of children, California law requires a health examination upon entry into 1st grade.  Examinations done within 18 months of entry into 1st
 grade also meet this requirement.  You may pick up the CHDP form in our office or get it from the above website.  
 
If you have any questions regarding the notices above, please feel free to contact Diane Keohen @ 462-4270, between 8:00 am – 2:30 pm.
