Welcome to Olive Street Elementary School
A Word From Our Principal
Dear Olive Street Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We are excited to begin the year as we continue to build upon our previous year’s successes. This year we’ve enhanced student safety, enriched academics, increased physical and emotional fitness programs, and will provide many family involvement opportunities.
Late last year, we informed families that our dismissal times have changed for some grade levels. Please be sure to review these times.
To help with traffic congestion during dismissal we are encouraging families to walk to and from school. Therefore, we will be participating in the Safe Routes To School and Walking School Bus programs. We are the only school in the district participating in these programs. This is an excellent opportunity for families to be involved with promoting healthy habits, such as walking. If you are interested in supporting these programs, please contact our office.
We are pleased to announce that Olive Street School will provide music classes for every grade level. More information will be provided in the coming weeks. We’ve added more computers and additional supports to enhance learning and engage students through technology. Physical and emotional fitness will remain a focus through programs like 100 Mile Club, Padres en Accion, Character Development, and services provided by our Behavioral Support Team.
Safety is a primary concern at Olive Street School. Therefore, with support from our district, we will have a “Single Point of Entry” (SPoE). No visitors will be allowed to enter our school without checking in at our front office. To support the SPoE, a fence has been constructed to secure our school. We understand that this may create an inconvenience for some. However, we ask for everyone’s cooperation and understanding.
We look forward to a wonderful school year and appreciate all that families do to support us and their children’s education. Please feel free to call or stop by our office with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
Nothing from Tue, October 17 to Wed, January 17.
