School Schedule Time Change!
Please note that there are several changes to our school schedule this school year (2016/2017) with new start and end times, as well as the continuation of Early Out Wednesdays. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, school will begin at 8:15 AM and end at 2:57 PM. On Early Out Wednesdays, school will begin at 8:15 AM and end at 12:57 PM.
Please remember that students should dress appropriately for school. The school dress code can be found in the Orchard School Parent/Student Handbook. Some important reminders include:
All family members should consider similar guidelines when they visit Orchard School. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Parking Lot Safety
Parking lot safety is a major concern. At the end of the day, there are almost 600 students departing from school. The majority exit through the front gate near the cafeteria to walk home or wait for a ride. Please make sure you drive slowly and cautiously through the pick up area and on Q Street, as you drive to and from school. Also, all students must be accompanied by an adult to vehicles, whether parked or not. Do not ask your child to walk into the parking lot, or across the street. Slow down and follow procedures. Thank you!
It is imperative that students are at school on time every day. Parents will receive truancy letters when students consistently have problems with attendance. This can lead to serious consequences. School begins at 8:15 AM every day, and students should be on campus at least 5 minutes prior to this time. However, they may not be on campus until 8:00 AM. Supervision begins on the playground at 8:00 AM.
Orchard School's mission is to provide a positive learning environment with high expectations, in which our school community can learn and grow together. A high degree of family involvement is encouraged, and plays a critical role in carrying out our mission. Orchard is a recognized California Distinguished School.
