Need an extra incentive for students to do some extra reading? The Six Flags Read to Succeed Program gives students a chance to trade in some extra hours of reading to earn a Six Flags Ticket. All that a student needs to do is read an additional 6 hours outside of their normal assigned reading time and turn in a signed reading log. For example, in fifth grade students are asked to read 20 minutes every day. If a student reads for an hour, then forty minutes would go towards earning a Six Flags ticket.
Reading logs are due to classroom teachers by February 10th. If you have any questions please contactyour child's homeroom teacher or the school's coordinator, Mrs. Barber, at email@example.com.
Vision and hearing screenings will begin in January according to California Education Law. Students in selected grades are screened annually for distance and near vision acuity, hyperopia and hearing. Grades that will be screened for both hearing and vision are: Kinder, 2nd, 5th and 8th. Kinder and TK students are also screened for color perception.
The school nurse will notify parents if any concerns are noted. Private screening in lieu of screening by the school nurse is acceptable. Results should be documented by the student’s MD and presented to the school office for documentation in the student’s health file. Parental written refusal of school screening should be submitted to school office prior to the date of screening.
We are changing some of our lunch procedures to help our nutritional services department run more smoothly and efficiently. The details are noted below.
• Orders for lunch need to be received the MONDAY (not Tuesday) prior to the week for which you are ordering lunch for your student(s). Orders for lunch are done through a Google form available on our website on the Nutritional Services Page.
• Payments may be made through our School Payment Portal also found on our Nutritional Services page of our Rocklin Academy Gateway website. Payment may also be made in our main office. If your child qualifies and participates in the Free and Reduced lunch program, you still need to place your orders one week prior along with payment if one is required.
• Cash payments are only accepted in the office. If you would like your child to be able to purchase milk to go with their home brought lunch, please put funds onto their lunch account for this purpose. Cash sales will not be accepted for this purpose beginning on Monday, December 5th.
If you need to contact the nutritional services department, they can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for the amazing support during the food drive. It was so momentous to deliver hundreds of cans of food and a total of 136 turkeys to support the greater Placer County. Our students were so excited to show compassion and generosity to others.
