Statewide Testing for 2015

Grades 3-6 will participate in the annual Smarter Balance Assessment. The testing window for Smarter Balance is April 20 through May 29. Fifth grade will also take the CST STAR Test in science. Testing will run through April 20 to May 01. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

Attention Parents of 6th Grade Students:

For the 2015 / 2016 school year, California Law (AB 354) requires an additional immunization called Tdap in order for your student to advance to or enter 7th grade. The adolescent whooping cough/pertussis booster shot, (Tdap) must be given on or after age 7 to meet this requirement. Valid proof must show: 1) type of shot given, 2) date, 3) provider’s signature/stamp. You can provide proof to your Elementary School Site up until the last day of school.

If parents have not provided proof to their school by the first day of school, September 2015, your student will NOT be allowed to attend.

Reservation Form for 2015-2016:

Reservation forms for students currently in TK thru 5th grade were mailed on February 9th. Please return the yellow postcard as soon as possible. The deadline to return the form with the proof of residency is March 2nd.

Change of Address/Residency:

Please be reminded that it is the responsibility of parents under Board Policy 5111 to notify the school office within five (5) days if they move in or out of the attendance area.  Any move within the attendance area still requires two (2) new proofs of residency to verify the new address.  Failure to do so will result in revocation of the student’s placement at the school.

Reminder to visitors:

All parents are required to sign in at the office before going anywhere else on campus.  There are School Board policies about classroom visits.  You must have made an appointment in advance with the teacher.  In order to maintain the orderly instructional and testing environment, parents may not just drop in.  You can only visit the classroom in which you child is enrolled.

This night is for all parents of all current 6th grade band and string students in the Mission San Jose Attendance Area (Chadbourne, Gomes, Mission San Jose, and Mission Valley), and for any additional parents interested in learning more about the Award-Winning Music Department at Hopkins.
