    School Photo Update

    Many parents have been calling and asking about their students school pictures and the personalized codes.  We have been informed by Hot Shot Photos that they are doing everything they can to complete the post production as well as get the notices to us.  We have been told that we should receive all notices sometime during the week of October 22nd.  Once we get the notices, they will be sent home with your student.  We ask that you continue to be patient.  

     

    AUSD HALLOWEEN POLICY

    At the Board of Education meeting on October 9 our Board changed a long standing policy on Halloween activities in the Alameda schools.  At Earhart School we have designed a day with Halloween activities while maintaining safety for all.  At Earhart School we want to invite our community to a parade on our yard at 1:30.  TK families are welcome to return to school and accompany young children in the parade.  The parade and costumes are optional.  Students may wear costumes all day or dress for the parade.  Due to the prevalence of food and nut allergies, there will be no candy.

    The following are the specific guidelines for Halloween activities at Amelia Earhart School:

    • Costumes shall fit into the AUSD dress code.
    • If a student chooses to dress at school for the parade, students must be able to put costumes on independently.
    • Students must be able to go to the bathroom independently in their costume.
    • Costumes shall not be worn that are unsafe or that may create a safety hazard.
    • No weapons or replica weapons, swords or light sabers or the like may be brought to school.
    • No costumes or masks may hide the identity of the student, impair the vision of a student or limit movement or play (i.e. run or climb on the play structure or participate in PE class.)
    • Costumes shall not be demeaning to any person or group based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or to any individual staff or student at school.

    This is an optional activity.  No student or staff shall be required to engage in Halloween-related activities if doing so conflicts with their religious faith and/or personal or cultural practice.  Students who do not participate in Halloween related activities will be provided an alternate educational activity.

    Attendance Procedures

    Please make sure that you review the District Attendance Policy:

    • It is the parent's responsibility to notify the attendance office if your child is going to be out of school. 
    • If a student is absent for any part of the school day due to a medical appointment, a doctor's note must be provided upon return to school. If a note is not provided, the absence will be considered unexcused.
    • Students who miss 30 minutes or more of instructional time throughout the day without a valid excuse will be marked unexcused.
    • Unexcused absences count towards truancy.
