Annual Administration of the California English Language Development Test

REVISED FOOD POLICY: As has been discussed at P.T.A. meetings and in previous newsletters (October 2012), 2013 will see some changes at Eastshore with regard to food on campus.  As you may know from recent news reports, food allergies are on the rise in children.  We currently have a peanut free table to accommodate our students who have severe nut allergies and parents have been very supportive in providing alternative choices for their children with food sensitivity during class parties.  However, considering the rise in juvenile diabetes, obesity and food allergies, we will be instituting some changes to support all of our students and families.

A common tradition at our elementary schools is for families to provide treats for a child’s classmates when celebrating a birthday.  The treats often consist of unhealthy (although very tasty!) sweets which we would like to eliminate.  We still want to honor students on their special day so here are some suggestions:

  • Pencils
  • Stickers
  • Bookmarks
  • Donate a book for the classroom library
  • Post-it notes
  • Notepads
  • Inexpensive hand-held games
  • There are many items in the $1 section at Target

We understand that this will be a transition and want to express our gratitude for your understanding and support in this effort.  Please confer with your child’s teacher prior to sending anything to school for celebrations. We would also like our room parents to consider healthy snacks/treats when planning class parties whenever possible.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

In the coming months, the Irvine Police Department and Community Services Department will continue our efforts to promote bicycle and pedestrian safety as part of the City’s Safe Routes to School Program. As we build upon these safety activities, you may see an increase of police officers on bicycles around different Irvine schools during high traffic drop-off and pick-up times. These officers will conduct safety education, enforcement and incentive activities such as giving prizes to students who are seen biking and walking using safety methods discussed at the presentations. Officers will also be enforcing traffic laws in areas surrounding the schools.The City of Irvine is excited to offer this program to enhance the safety and well-being of Irvine students and families.
