Parent Teacher Conferences

October 6th-10th is parent/teacher conference week! It is very important that all parents show up to their scheduled conference. As a friendly reminder, early dismissal at 1:15pm will be held all week to accommodate conferences.

Dual Language Immersion 90/10 Parent Info Sessions/Principal Coffees

Parents are invited to attend several sessions to provide information on our proposal to transition our current model to a 90/10 Model. We are exploring best practices and research for possible implementation, and want to share and inform parents, as well as to get feedback and address questions. It will be combined with “Principal Coffees”. The first date will be Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8:00 am in the MU room. Other dates will follow.

Cold and Flu Season is Coming…Wash hands for Better Health

Children may not always listen when you tell them to wash their hands before eating, but it's a message worth repeating. Hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and to keep your kids from getting sick. No new technology, drug or vaccine is capable of preventing more infections than the simple act of washing one's hands, according to doctors. Washing hands is a major public health intervention to prevent disease -- it's cheap, it's easy, and it works. To reinforce the habit, practice with your children at home.

When is a child too sick to attend school?
For health and safety reasons, your child should not attend school if he/she exhibits any of the following symptoms:

  • A fever of more than 100 degrees
  • Eyes that are red, swollen, crusty, draining, or oozing
  • Diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
  • Contraction of a childhood communicable disease such as chicken pox, measles, or mumps (notify school immediately)
  • A productive cough with yellow or green nasal discharge
  • A severe sore throat
  • Head lice (notify school immediately)
  • An untreated infectious illness such as upper-respiratory infection, pink eye, strep throat, or bronchitis (notify school immediately)
  • Attendance

    With the holiday season around the corner, we know as parents, it can be tempting to extend vacation days and plan for vacations during the regularly scheduled school days. We ask that you refrain from doing so as this can greatly impact your child’s education. We cannot stress enough the importance of attending school daily so your child may receive the necessary instruction. We understand that unforeseen issues do arise, such as illnesses, so please do not forget to contact the office if your child will be absent at: 408-795-1140


    Note from the Principal…

    We have had a great start to the 2014-2015 school year. Welcome back to all and welcome to our new families! You will quickly realize that Sherman Oaks is a great school with awesome families, staff, and students. We strive to be an excellent Learning Community and we are looking forward to a great school year!

    Drop-off and pick-up at School--Parking Lot Safety--

    Our parking lot is small and we have limited spaces, which are mostly reserved, for our staff. Please allow yourself plenty of time to find parking and walk. You may park in the Sherman Oaks parking lot—legal space permitting, along the street, or in the neighboring
off-street parking where allowed. Please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park on grass, or block driveways, and be courteous to pedestrian and automobile traffic. Our children’s safety is one of our top priorities and your help is much appreciated.

    You may drop-off or pick-up your child using the “drop off/pick up” lane
on the right side of the parking lot. When using this lane, please make sure your child enters and exits to the right next to the curb, not into the parking lot. This will keep your child safe. If your child is not out front when you arrive for pick-up, please
use the inner (passing) lane to circle the parking lot until you see your child. Then you may enter the “loading” lane to pick them up at the curb. Please do NOT block the drop off lane, park in red zones, or unauthorized areas, or leave your car unattended. Thank you for your attention and for keeping your student safe.

    “Welcome Back Coffee” hosted by PTC—Thursday 8/28

    Please join us for a very informal but fun get-together. Come say hi to the parent community and learn about some of the exciting things that will enrich our kids’ lives this school year. If you’re new to Sherman Oaks, this is your chance to meet other parents – a precious resource as you tackle the new Sherman Oaks adventure with your kid(s). Join us in the Courtyard at 8:00 if you can!
