Attendance

Please remember to call the office for each day that your son or daughter is absent! You can reach us at 408-270-4983.

Visitors on Campus

During school supervision hours, parents and visitors must come through the office and obtain a visitor's badge to enter the Laurelwood campus.  For the safety of the students and staff, parents are asked to stay behind the yellow lines during school hours unless they are volunteering in a classroom.  All deliveries of lunches, homework, backpacks, etc. should be delivered to the school office to ensure student safety and minimize classroom interruptions.  Thank you in advanced for your assistance and support. 

Got Tdap?

Parents of 6th Graders: You will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old.  Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May.  If you haven't done so already, check your child immunization record of call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination.  Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to your child's school they attend NOW so we can document that the requirement has been completed.

Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures

Please help us maintain a safe environment for all students at Laurelwood by driving slowly on Partridge Drive, in the surrounding neighborhood, and into the school. With the elimination of bus transportation, we highly recommend families to walk or carpool. Laurelwood’s parking lot will remain closed to the public between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and again at the close of the school day from 2:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.

We added a new pick-up and drop-off lane (right side of cones) along the curb on Partridge Drive for vehicles turning into the loop.  Please stay in vehicle at all times and pull forward along the curb when possible.  Do not park on Partridge Drive between the designated "No Parking" zones where the pick-up and drop-off lane is established. 

When dropping off your child, pull your vehicle all the way to the front of the loop. Wait in your car while your child is getting out of your vehicle. You are also welcome to park on the street and have your child walk onto school campus using the sidewalks. Eliminating cars driving through the parking lot creates a safer situation for our students, staff, and special needs bus riders. When picking up your child from school, do not leave your car unattended in the drop-off/pick-up zones. We ask that you park in designated parking spaces or on the street if you need to leave your vehicle for any reason. Please do not drive through the parking lot and do not park in the red zones.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Traffic Safety Volunteers Needed

Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 8.26.04 PM.png

Our students' safety is very important!  We are seeking volunteers to help with traffic before school and after dismissal.  Please consider helping to keep our students and school safe.  Contact Dr. Nguyen at hnguyen@eesd.org or call the school office at (408) 270-4983.

Social and Emotional Learning

Each week, Laurelwood students receive a lesson utilizing the “Habits of Mind” curriculum as part of their social and emotional learning.  So far this year, your child has learned about Persisting, Managing Impulsivity, Listening with Empathy and Understanding, Thinking Flexibly, Metacognition, Striving for Accuracy, and Questioning and Problem Posing. Each lesson is taught for a two-week period to give students the opportunity to practice what they have learned.  From 12/14-12/18, students will learn about Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations. You can assist your child by asking what they are learning during their “Habits of Mind” lessons, and by acknowledging their efforts to practice what they have learned.
