    NWEA-MAP Testing for Grades 3-6

    Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) is a test that measures how well a student can apply their skills to questions aligned to the Common Core Standards in Reading and Mathematics. In San Juan Unified, all students in grades 3-9 will take the MAP assessments in Reading and Mathematics. DPM will be testing from Monday, 8/19 to Friday, 9/20.  If you have additional questions, please contact your classroom teacher.  Thank you!

    Student meal benefits from last school year will expire on September 26 if there is not a current 2019/20 meal application on file at the Nutritional Services office. Forms can be picked up in the school office.



    School Site Council

    School Site Council will have their first meeting of the school year on Tuesday, September 17 at 2:55 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend.  We have an opening for a parent representative.  If you are interested, please call the school office (575-2330). The School Site Council receives first-hand knowledge about school curriculum, budget, district, and state changes and approves use of the funds.  The School Site Council meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month.


    Picture Day

    Picture day is Friday, Sept 6.  Look for picture package information to go home soon. Picture packages may be purchased online at mylifetouch.com or payment may be sent in on picture day (9/6) using the package payment envelope.



    If your child will be absent, please be sure to call the school (575-2330 –press 1 for attendance) each morning that your child(ren) will be absent. Upon your child’s return, please turn in any doctor and/or dental documentation to the school office. Also, if your child is tardy due to an appointment, please bring the office your documentation. This documentation is required for an “excused” absence/late.



    Drop off and Pick up

    For safety, students should not arrive before 7:45 a.m. if eating breakfast, and 8:05 a.m. for all other students as this is when supervision begins.
