Parents and teachers provide a joint partnership in supporting students on their educational journey. Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. You know your child the best and have the most information and insight on how they learn best along with knowing a child’s challenges, strengths, and opportunities. Parent-Teacher Conferences are a key event where we can focus on each individual child and work together to design an educational program tailored for each child using the available resources. We will be meeting with every family during the week of October 15-19. To provide enough time for conferences, students will be attending school on a minimum day schedule all week. Students will be dismissed at 1:00 each day. Every family will be scheduled during the morning and afternoon hours. Please make sure you connect with your child’s teacher to set up a conference time and set this time as a priority. If the unexpected occurs and you will not be able to attend at the specific time, please contact your child’s teacher or the office immediately so we can reschedule (530) 543-2350.
We also want to remind every family to complete an application for free/reduced lunch (even if you do not qualify). The School District is providing a bonus to the schools if we have all of our parents complete the application. The funds they will give us goes directly to your child’s programs. We can send home a paper application home if needed. We also have computers available in the office so you can easily complete the application online. If you prefer to complete it at home please click on the “Resources/Parents” tab on this website, and then click on the “Meal Application”. This will take you directly to the application also.
Regular school attendance is one more key way that families can support their child’s academic growth. Research has proven over and over the benefits of attending school daily and arriving on time. One easy way to ensure your child arrives on time daily is to set an alarm on your cell phone (with a back-up alarm if needed). You can bring your child to school at 8:45 a.m., which is well before the beginning of the school day at 9:10. Tahoe Valley also has an on-site morning daycare program (Kid Zone) which runs daily from 7:00-9:00 a.m. for the price of $5.00 per day. To sign up, please call the office for an application or stop by to fill one out. Show you care and put your child first. Get them to school daily and on time.
