THE DISTRICT HAS RESTORED 2 DAYS - Revised Calendar Dates

We are pleased to share that the Board of Education took action to modify this school year’s calendar, restoring two days of school for students that had previously been cut as a result of California's fiscal crisis.  This decision came following a full review of the district budget, including its implications for current and future year funding in the Upland Unified School District.

Please make note that the following dates are now regular school days for all students:

Monday, March 26

Friday, May 25

Even in these uncertain fiscal times, it is great to be in a district where the Board of Education places instructional time at the top of the list when prioritizing its resources.  A copy of the revised calendar for 2011-12 will be posted on the district web site.

Back-to-School/Curriculum Nights

We have scheduled Back-to-School/Curriculum Nights for August 30th and August 31st. 

As we continue to work collaboratively to ensure success for each student, we have decided to have grade level presentations for parent information at the beginning of the school year. This helps to communicate common information relevant to each grade level curriculum and policies/procedures. Schoolwide policies and procedures will be shared as well.

Parents should plan to attend without students. Space does not allow students to join parents in our classrooms. Back to School night is not parent-teacher conference night. Please do not expect teachers to have lots of time to talk about individual students. If you have information that you need to share with teachers about your student, teachers will provide a form for that purpose.

We hope that you will join us as we start the new school year!

 

The schedule is as follows:

 

Tuesday, August 30

Wednesday, August 31

5:00 pm

Kindergarten

5:45 pm

3rd Grade

5:45 pm

Revised Calendar for 2010-2011 School Year

We are pleased to share that the Board of Education took action to modify the 2010-11 school year calendar, restoring four (4) days of school for students that had previously been cut as a result of California's fiscal crisis.  This decision came following a full review of the adopted state budget, including its implications for current and future year funding in the Upland Unified School District.

 
Please make note that the following dates are now regular school days:
Friday, December 17 (minimum day)
Friday, March 18
Friday, April 22
Friday, May 27
 
Even in these uncertain fiscal times, it is great to be in a district where the Board of Education places instructional time at the top of the list when prioritizing its resources.  A copy of the revised calendar for 2010-11 will be sent home with students and posted on the web site.  Please click here for the revised calendar.

Drop Off/PickUp

The drop-off/pick-up times continue to be a concern at Valencia this year.  We would like to thank those parents who continue to use caution when driving in our parking lots and around our school.

In order to maintain a safe and effective pick up system we must all adhere to the guidelines

THANK YOU!
