September 16, 2018

Hello Sandburg Families,

This is Principal Simmons with your Sunday notes.  What a great week it was.  Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, students, and community for coming out for Back to School night!  It was a great success.  As we all know, we experienced a power-outage the following day.  This is a great reminder to ensure that all emergency forms are up to date and that your child has their required medications on campus secured with the nurse.  In the event of an emergency, such as a lock down, we want to ensure all students are safe and well cared for. 

The San Diego Police Department will continue issuing tickets for those parking in the 3 minute loading and unloading zone.  This drop off and loading zone is not meant as a location for you to exit your vehicle.  Our school resource officer will be out again next week, so please ensure to follow all parking rules.

We will conduct our first fire drill next week on Wednesday at 9:00 am.

Events for the upcoming weeks include:

  • September 17th, Foundation meeting at 6:00 pm, in the library.  Please join us.
  • September 18th, Coffee with the principal at 7:45 am in the MPR.

Hello Sandburg Families,

This is Principal Simmons with your Sunday notes.  I am so excited to meet the students on Monday.  Please remember parents, school begins promptly at 7:45.  Please plan on meeting your teacher at your child’s designated classroom.  Thank you to those who joined us on Saturday for the campus beautification day.  To see the community rally together is great, and I am thankful for all of your support.

If you are unable to locate your child on the class list, please make your way to the main office on Monday so we can direct you to the appropriate classroom.

Kindergarten families, please remember that your child’s snack and lunch should be packed separately.  This will help them to distinguish between the two.

Our first morning assembly will occur on Friday, August 31st.  Parents, please be aware that the running club will begin Tuesday, September 4th.  In addition, the much anticipated back to school BBQ will be on Saturday, September 8th from 5-7 pm.  More information will be forthcoming.
