A Note from the Principal


Dear Monterey Road Parents,


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break filled with lots of family and friend time. December is here already! We have a lot going on this month and we want to keep you in the loop! First, our MRES Student Council is hosting a Canned Food Drive. There is a box in each classroom. Please send in canned or boxed goods to donate to families in need. We are also collecting unwrapped toys for tots in the office. What a great way to teach our students the spirit of giving this holiday season! Our student council is also hosting a holiday wear twin day on December 16th. This will be a fun day for our students. Information will be sent home soon. On December 9th, our school is participating in the worldwide Hour of Code. This is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, creator, and innovator. We have 20 representatives coming from Amazon SLO to help our teachers and students learn code during this hour. This day would not be possible without all the updated technology we have in our classrooms. We are very thankful for this opportunity and our staff and students are excited! We want to thank all parents for your help in ensuring your children are at school every day and on time. We have seen a huge decrease in the amount of tardies this last month. Keep up the great work. It is so important for students to be at school regularly and on time. I want to wish all our families Happy Holidays this December. Enjoy precious time with family and friends. I continue to be so thankful for all of you, our students, and wonderful staff. Winter Break will be here before we know it! 


Warm Regards,

Julie Davis & MRES Staff

Monterey Road Elementary School is now a

"California Distinguished School"  


On May 1, 2014, 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.
