What do I do if my child(ren) will be missing school for a vacation?
Our hope at Miwok Village Elementary School is that all vacations are taken during scheduled break/offtrack times. It is very important that students do not miss instruction time as attendence is the leading indicator of whether or not students will be successful in the classroom.
If you still must schedule a vacation during instructional days, please come into the office to fill out a "Vacation Absence Form" as far in advance of the vacation as possible. Also, it is important to know that vacations are considered unexcused absences. Legally excused absences are those for personal illness, quarentine, doctor appointments, court dates, etc. By having multiple unexcused absences on your student's record, you will receive letters or phone calls from the Attendence Improvement Office.
I want to bring treats for my child's birthday/celebration, what should I bring?
Non-food items are preferred & always enjoyed. Only store bought, individually wrapped, pre-packaged treats with labeled ingredients are acceptable. Please note that the office cannot guarantee that treats delivered to the office will make it to the classroom. We ask students to hold all treats for their grown-ups' approval before eating. Food and non-food goodies are sent home at the end of the day and not consumed during instructional times.
Where do I drop off/pick up my child before/after school?
In the morning, the MP room opens for breakfast at 8:15. All gates open at 8:35am and students walk directly to their classrooms. If walking your child to and from campus, please plan to park in designated street parking areas along Cape Verde to the westand Greylag, Steve Horning, Dona Neely, and Richard Ibarra Ways to the east.
After school, gates open at 3:11pm on all days but Wednesdays, when gates open at 2:21. Dismissal is from the classroom with TK, K, and 1st grade students dismissed to families at the door. Students in 2nd grade or above may wait in front of the school to be picked up from the designated pickup lane. Please have a plan for your students at dismissal.
You can see the designated areas for drop off/pickup here.
Safety is our top priority, therefore we ask that students and guardians always exercise caution while driving/walking and use crosswalks at all times.
What do I need to do to get my child an early dismissal?
Students may be released early only to approved guardians/emergency contacts in the front office after providing photo ID, students are not called up to the office until photo ID is verified. Please arrive early enough to provide enough time for the student to be called to the office. Also, be aware that it may take longer to retrieve the student if they are at lunch or recess.
