 Campus Safety Procedures
Please pull your car all the way forward in the morning on the Riverside Avenue school entrance. It creates less traffic. We want your child to always be safe. For your child's safety, do not drop your child on any of the main streets. It is dangerous and creates traffic jams. Thank you!
Starting Tuesday, September 6 parents must follow Pachappa's Campus Safety Procedures. We will welcome your child to school and if you want to come in with them you must sign in at the front office. Please follow this guidelines so that we can make sure that your child has a safe learning environment. 
Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

All students entering 7th grade in August are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (‘Tdap’) shot in order to attend classes.  Your child will be excluded from attendance if you do not meet this requirement.  Students who are currently in 6th grade should fulfill this requirement now and bring the shot record to the school office.

Reminder about early pick-up.
California Ed Code requires that if a child is to be picked up early, the parent must do so. In the past we have allowed anyone on the emergency card to act on your behalf.
This has changed.
A parent must be the one picking up the student or there must be a note with the date and time provided to the school with the person picking up the child. Simply put, if someone other than the parent is picking up a student, they must have a written note signed by the parent with the time and date on it.
Students checked out early without a verified medical appointment will be marked as unexcused early release. This will count against the student's attendance. If you have any questions, please call our office.
