    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, Hot Rod Nightz was a huge success! I have had many people stop me and tell me what a wonderful community building event it was. It was amazing to see how many families came to join us. I worked the popcorn machine and there was a steady line all night long.

    While so many of us had a wonderful time, it is important to note that the entire evening was organized by two ladies: Jeanie Jackson and Susan Rien. Thank you so much for taking the time to make such a memorable event for our school.

    Safety Update

    As you know, we are evaluating our safety procedures as a follow-up to the situation that occurred last week. I want to share with you the student check out procedures that will be followed for future emergencies:

    • The student release team is headed by our office staff: Judy Venezia and Charlene VanderMartin.

    • Tables will be set up for student release near the gate at the Jefferson parking lot.

    • Student emergency cards will be brought out to the tables.

    • Parents, or any adult picking up your child, will be asked show ID and to initial the emergency card. (Please note that if the name of the adult is not on the emergency card, the student will not be able to be released.)

    • Team will radio for the student to come to the reunion area. Parent and student will be reunited at the reunion area on the blacktop.

    Student check-out procedures are only one small part of our school safety plan, which is developed by a committee and passed by the Site Council. If you are interested in serving on the safety committee that reviews and makes changes to the plan each year, please email me at dhardester@rcsdk8.net.

    Samtrans Feedback for High School Parents

    Currently students in Emerald Hills/Farm Hill Estates do not have a safe way to get to their districted high school (Woodside High) unless they are driven in private cars. Samtrans does have a bus line (the 278) that runs down Farm Hill Boulevard and passes Woodside HS (Woodside Rd/Alameda), but it only runs on SATURDAY. The Sequoia Union District contact has suggested that people who might use this 278 bus if it ran on weekdays click on the link (http://www.samtrans.com/about/contact.html) for the SamTrans feedback form. On this form, people can ask that the 278 run on weekdays and mention the times of day that they would use this line.

    Dear Parents,

    We are working on building our community at Roy Cloud this year. One of the ways that we are doing this is by starting Morning Assemblies. We hold our morning assemble on Thursday mornings from 8:15-8:25 out on the blacktop. This is a time when the school comes together. Students from the leadership class tell us about upcoming events and other announcements, and some classes perform. Last week Mrs. Sloan's class sang "You're a Grand Old Flag" and this week Mrs. Fama's class will be recite "Books Fall Open" in honor of our wonderful Library opening! If you drop your student off at school, we hope that you will stay on Thursday mornings and be a part of our community at Morning Assemble.

    Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents,

    September is Attendance Awareness Month.

    One of the best ways to help your child succeed in school is to build the habit of good attendance. School success goes hand in hand with good attendance. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.

    Here are some things that you can do to help your child develop good attendance habits:

    ·Set a regular bedtime and morning routine.

    ·Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.

    ·Don't let your child stay home unless they are truly sick.

    ·Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session. If an extended trip is unavoidable, please ask the office about the possibility of an independent study.

    Drop off/Pick Up Procedures

    Here are Roy Cloud's parking lot rules. We hope that everyone follows these rules, so that drop-off and pick-ups are both faster and safer for our Roy Cloud community.

    1. No parking in the red curb zones. No stopping and leaving your car, even for a minute!

    2. Pull up as far as you can, so we can have a smooth and quick transition for our cars during drop-off or pick-up.

    3. Do NOT park in the staff parking lot spaces. These spots are designated for our teachers and staff. They are marked with STAFF across the front of the space.

    4. Look out for pedestrians. Be cautious as you drove through the parking lots.  Students, teachers and staff may be walking onto campus.

    5. During pick-up, if your child is not at the loading area, you need to circle around again - no stopping or waiting!

    Dear Parents,

    Happy New Year!

    What a wonderful opening we had this year! I would like to thank the PTO for hosting the Welcome Back Coffee on Monday. It was wonderful to see all the families that were able to come in and mingle. I would also like to thank all of the families that were here caring for your planter barrels. Your hard work paid off...our campus looks amazing!

    This year we had our Kindergarten Coffee Tuesday morning. I would like to thank all the Roy Cloud parents that came to help welcome and answer questions for our new families. I would also like to thank Kim Yuen for coordinating all of the Kindergarten play dates that were held this summer.

    If you are a new family to Roy Cloud, I would like to invite you to the New Family Orientation. This will be held on Thursday, September 11th at 6:00 p.m. in the Library. This will just be an informal time to meet other new families, ask questions, and learn about our school. We are so excited that you are here.

    -Dana Hardester, Principal

    At Roy Cloud we have two special parking spots, one at the Jefferson lot and one in the Red Oak lot, that are reserved for the highest bidders at our annual auction. These parking spots auctioned off each year and the winners get their own spot for one full year. Please do not park in these spots, not even for a quick minute, as these are reserved for our winners. Thank you for your support! You can bid on these spots at our next auction on February 21st!

    Calling all Roy Cloud Superheroes!

    Please consider making a back-to-school donation to help fund all of the wonderful PTO sponsored Roy Cloud programs! Click here to read about these programs and where your donation goes. The direct donations campaign is one of our largest fundraisers, and we are looking for 100% participation! Please give what you can, while keeping in mind the suggested "fair share" donation of $500 per student. Click here to donate online now. There are also donation envelopes and a drop box in the school office. All gifts are tax deductible. Questions? Please contact Amy Truesdale or Sarah Orton.
