Principal’s Corner

Hello Squirrels! Back to School Night is this Wednesday. I look forward to showing you some of the amazing things that are happening at our school. We will start in the auditorium promptly at 6 p.m. ending at 6:30 p.m. From there I invite you to visit classrooms from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. I hope to see you there.

Just a friendly reminder about Sequoia’s after school care program, Healthy Start. Our Healthy Start program has sole access to our site and playground after 3 p.m daily. They contract with the district and rent the space from the district for after school care. I know it’s a great time to socialize with friends and families, but it is a liability for the after school care program and their staff when they are monitoring students in the after school program if there are other children playing that are not enrolled in the program.

Just last week, they had to engage with students not in the program to mediate conflicts and solve problems. It makes their job extremely difficult. I am asking that all students not in the after school care program be off campus daily by 3:15 p.m. for the safety of the Healthy Start students, and the needs of the program staff. As always, if you need support or have questions please feel free to ask.

With Warmest Regards,

Principal Bertolo
