During the month of October we are focusing on the character pillar CARING and success skill of SELF-DISCIPLINE.  

This week is Character Counts week!  Show your commitment to being a person with great character by wearing the color aligned with each of the six pillars this week!

GATE Parent Info Night

Tracy Unified is holding an information night for our Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program on Thursday, November 4.  At this meeting families will learn about the application process, program criteria, and more.  To learn more about Tracy Unified's GATE program click here.


Masks Required While Indoors

Our students have done a great job in the first trimester being responsible and wearing their masks at all times while indoors.  We ask our families continue to support this responsibility by packing a second mask in their child's backpack.  It is very common for masks to break or get dirty during the school day.  Packing a second mask will help make sure your child is quickly able to mask up again without missing any class time.

Attendance Counts

Daily attendance at school when your child is healthy is more now than ever!  If your child must miss school due to illness, be sure to reach out to their teacher to receive any work that will be missed.  Most times we will be able to have missed work ready for pick up in the school office, allowing you to quickly get in and out.  If your families health won't allow you to come by the school let us know and we will find a way to deliver missed work to you!
