Internet Essentials Program

We know that many students and their families would like to have internet service at home so they can do homework, search for jobs, download music, communicate with others and much more.  We also believe the Internet can be an important part of your child's education.


That's why we want to make sure you know about a program provided by Comcast called Internet Essentials.


If you have at least one child eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program, your family may qualify for fast, affordable home internet service for the new school year.  Internet Essentials costs just $9.99 per month (plus tax).  For participating families, there are no price increases, no activation fees or equipment rental fees.  In addition, you can buy a low-cost computer for just $149.99 (plus tax).


If you think this might be right for your family, it's easy to get started.  Visit InternetEssentials.com to learn more and see if you qualify, or call 1-855-8-INTERNET or 1-855-846-8376 to enroll and get connected.


We want to make sure that our students have access to online learning, and we are excited to tell you about programs like Internet Essentials that may be helpful to your family.  Please see the attached flyer for more information.

Every Day Counts

Every Day Counts in a child’s education. Every day a student misses school, he or she gets more than two days behind his peers, because he or she must make up missed lessons and catch up with new lessons at the same time. Regular and punctual attendance will help increase student academic growth. California Education Code Section 46010 states that the only valid reasons for absences from school are:

  1. Illness or injury to the child
  2. Quarantine of the home by a health official
  3. Doctor or dentist’s appointments that can only be scheduled during school hours.
  4. Attendance at funeral services for immediate family.

School districts NO longer receive funding from the State of California for students who are absent from school. This includes ALL absences, even those related to illness, medical/dental appointments. In other words, schools will receive state funding only for students who are in their seats for that day. Please be sure to assist your child in maintaining exemplary attendance to insure the best possible education for him/her, as well as maximum state funding for student attendance. Even if a student attended school part of the day we could still receive income for that student ($35-$40 a day per child). We kindly ask you to be sure your child only stays home when it’s absolutely necessary.

We know you want the very best education for your child, and we do too. Thank you for understanding that Every Day Counts, together we can give your child the very best education.
