Sunday Night Message 2.17.19

Hello Los Coyotes Families.Below please find this week’s important announcements. This Tuesday morning, our sixth graders will be leaving for science camp. Since many of the sixth grade parents will want to stay and see their child off to camp and will also be unloading luggage, please use extra patience and caution in our parking lots. It would be an excellent idea to walk to school that day if possible! Again, they will be leaving on Tuesday. Many of you may have noticed a buzzer, or “doorbell” that is now attached to our main gate. We can now keep this gate locked and “buzz” people in and out via a connection with the school office. This will greatly enhance our ability to regulate who is on our campus. Beginning Monday, February 25, if you wish to enter campus after the instructional day has begun, simply use the doorbell to communicate with the office, and we will unlock the gate, allowing you to enter. Thank you for your understanding and support as we enhance the safety of our campus. A letter will be coming home on Tuesday, February 19 with more information. Bingo Night is coming Friday March 1st. Please mark your calendars for this fun event. There will be lots of prizes and raffles, including Knott's and Disneyland tickets. Order forms available in the office or online. See the school website under PTSO for more info. Order forms due Monday, February 25. Please remember that there is NO SCHOOL tomorrow, Monday, February 18 in honor of Presidents’ Day. Thanks and have a wonderful week.
