A Message from Your Principal
January 16, 2019
As we begin the New Year, it is the perfect time to update your child’s emergency information. I cannot emphasize enough with each of you how important it is for you to have your child’s emergency information up to date. Please make certain that the office has-in writing-a list of all of the individuals who have your permission to pick up your child during an emergency situation. Mrs. Mayo can easily attach this list to the back of your emergency card, which is on file in the office. Please make this task a priority and deliver the list to Mrs. Mayo.
The district has developed a technology survey to gather input from parents in an effort to understand your views on technology use in the classroom and at home. The feedback that is collected will be used to inform and improve digital learning plans, including the district Education Technology Plan. Please take a few minutes to answer the survey questions, which will close on February 1st. Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey, and thank you!
~ Please take extra care at drop-off and pick-up during such inclement weather. To prevent traffic jams, it is very helpful to arrive just a few minutes later if you have upper grade students, so that parents of those dismissed first can pick-up and leave campus, allowing space for you. Thank you for not blocking the pick up lane or leaving your car unattended!
~If your son or daughter is part of the School Bus Pilot Program, which was launched by the Town of Los Gatos on January 7th, please make certain that he or she is registered at Clubhouse. Before school supervision begins at 7:50, and only supervision at the gate is provided at dismissal. Students cannot be left unattended on the school campus.
Thank you for all you do for Lexington School!!
All my best,
TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE FOR THE ALL SCHOOL PLAY!
School Bus Safety Tips
You have seen school buses on the road. Here are a few things to know to support the safety of the students in our community.
When do you need to stop for a school bus?
Flashing Yellow Lights
Warning you to slow down and get ready to stop.
Red Flashing Lights
You MUST stop in EITHER DIRECTION until the kids are safely across the street AND the lights stop flashing.
The law requires you remain stopped as long as the red lights are flashing (CVC §22454).
If you fail to stop, you may be fined up to $1,000 and your driving privilege could be suspended for 1 year.
If the school bus is on the other side of a divided or multilane highway (two or more lanes in each direction), you do not need to stop.
What are School Bus Loading Zones?
These zones are marked with a painted white curb and signs.
They provide the school bus a safe access and efficient location o drop off and pick up students. Only school buses may park in the zone during the indicated time.
Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police will be enforcing these zones around the school sites.
