For New Families

New Family News and Logistics

News

The Welcome Ambassador buddy program was launched on May 8. We have an unprecedented number of enthusiastic volunteers this season.

Also at this time, in the "Download Important Documents" drop-down we have uploaded pdfs of the new 1155 Page Street Traffic Plan, the new CA Law regarding Health examination for entrance and vaccination compliance, and our in-house Emergency Health Form which is also essential for school entry in the fall. 

We have posted the dates and times for starting school including our special induction arrangements for PK3. Crafting class lists is underway and we will make these available in the latter part of May.  

Ongoing

At the New Parent Welcome Cocktail on April 24, each new family in attendance received a tote bag that included:

  • an illustrated history of the school
  • a temporary directory of current and new 1155 Page Street families for September 2017
  • a school t-shirt for your child 

If you missed the event, please come pick up your bag in the Admission office on the second floor of 150 Oak Street.

In June we will assign user names and passwords for access to the school's community portal. There you'll find back-to-school resources including lunch information, earthquake and emergency plans, and handbooks.
