  • Who should I notify if my child will be absent?

    Posted by:

    Please call the main Preschool Office at 408 522-8213 or email grissel.ramirez@sesd.org

    Please state your child's name, teacher and reason for the absence.   Parents of special education students also need to notify the bus service if appropriate.

     

    Absences not reported to the Preschool Office are considered unexcused.

    Extended absences (beyond 5 days) or vacations during school days are not encouraged as they can result in a loss of instructional time and can negatively affect student progress. Parents should notify the preschool office in writing of any extended absence

  • What is the birthday/celebration policy at the preschool center?

    Posted by:

    Birthdays are celebrated the last 10 minutes of the program day. Parents should contact the classroom teacher in advance. Celebration foods should be commercially prepared/packaged and meet nutritional guidelines or parents may consider gifting a book to the classroom on your child's behalf. If your family does not recognize these celebrations, your child will be involved in another supervised activity out of the classroom. Please make the teacher/office aware of your preference in this area
