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 9 AM (10:25 AM on Wednesdays), and students should be on campus at least 5 minutes prior to this time. However, they may not be on campus until 8:30 AM. Supervision for breakfast begins at 8:30 AM in the cafeteria. Supervision on the playground begins at 8:45 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.
Parent & Community Involvement
Providing a wealth of opportunities for parent involvement is a priority for our staff. The results of our most recent parent survey show that 82% of those that responded feel they have opportunities to be involved, and 86% said they are encouraged to participate in school activities. Our School/Parent/Student Compact and Parent Involvement policy are published in our school plan and in our Parent/Student Handbook.
The school at large provides numerous family events that include Dessert with Santa, Family Game Night, Family Music Night, and Family Science Night. These events are designed to enhance community building. Additional events are designed to support academic achievement and interaction among families and school personnel. Participation makes all of us stronger and more successful!
Our School Site Council, which is made up of parents and staff, approves our school's annual improvement plan and general budget. In addition, we have an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) to assist families of students not yet proficient in English.
Please feel welcome at Orchard School, and become more involved with your child's educational process!
