Dear Anna Yates Families,
We have almost completed 100 days of the 2018-2019 school year together! We have a few items we wanted to make you aware of so that we can continue to move forward with a safe and successful academic year:
Meeting Our Attendance Goal: Daily and on time attendance is essential to our students’ academic success. Please assist us in reaching out district goal of a daily attendance rate of 96.5 %. While our middle school attendance rate is at , specifically TK-5, has an attendance rate that is closer to 93% and we cannot make improvements without your help. Scheduling appointments after school and taking family vacations during school vacation days can help us meet our goal!
In our lobby we will have posted our weekly attendance rates so please feel free to stop by and see how we are doing in trying to meet our goal!
Improving Drop Off/Pick Up: We are currently working with city and district staff to increase systems to improve the traffic and safety concerns on 53rd St. during our drop off and pick up. It is with your help that we can begin to make these improvements. Using the crosswalks ensures our students can cross this busy street as safely as possible. Parking on San Pablo Ave. rather than the loading zones or driveways can keep traffic flowing and sidewalks clear of pedestrians.
It is only as a collaborative effort can we continue to move forward and make positive changes. Please feel free to join us at our monthly Coffee with the Principals to provide input and discuss as a community how we can implement these changes successfully.
We thank you for all your support,
Samantha Carter and Eddie Scruggs Smith
