For New and Returning Joaquin Miller Families
Registration Day for the 2013-2014 school year will be on
Saturday, August 24, 2012 from 9:00 a.m to 2:30 p.m.
Parents will be able to pick up their registration packet during the weeks of August 12- 23 from the school's office or download it here. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Inside you will find:
• Attendance Calling System Registration
• Attendance Requirements Document
• Back to School Registration Document
• Earthquake Preparedness Document
• Internet Use Policy and Permission Form
• JM Caring Community Policy Form
• Medical Information Form
• Meal Applications
• Meal Applications in Spanish
• Parking Lot Rules Document
Kindergarten parents will recive a letter in July regarding kindergarten placement (click here for info on the Kindergarten Tea). Parents in grades 1st -5th will receive their student’s class assignment at Registration Day. Parents who are not able to come to our Saturday Registration will have to enroll on Monday, in the school’s library. Please plan time to complete the forms.
We are asking that new parents provide the school with a copy of their assignment letter from the Student Assignment office and a verbal acknowledgment of their wish to come to JM. In most cases this has already been done.
About the packet
The packet includes all of the forms that must be completed for each child. There are additional forms for new students such as, immunization and dental health forms. (If your packet does not have these additional forms and you need them, you will be able to pick them up on August 24.)
All families, new and returning, are asked to bring their completed packets back to school on Saturday, August 24, 2013. If you are not able to make it on this day or during this time, please send a person in your absence. We understand that vacations have been scheduled and in that case you can bring the forms back to the office on the first day of school. Parents who have more than one child may come in at whatever time best suits their schedule. The idea behind the time is to help manage the crowd flow and not to make more work for the families.
Parents, who return their child’s forms on August 24, will receive a folder with their child’s classroom assignment and all other information for the beginning of the school, as well as a new Boomerang Folder to organize homework.
Class assignments will be posted Monday Morning only. The school will not post student lists on Saturday or Sunday in order to prevent unsafe public access. This decision is aligned with our goal to make safe and responsible decisions to protect our student's identity. Thank you for your understanding.
We hope that this process is clear and helpful. We want to give parents ample time to complete the forms, return the forms in an orderly manner, and to allow parents an opportunity to receive your class assignments in a friendly atmosphere with staff on hand to address your concerns.
School begins August 26, 2013.
