    School Rules:

    Be kind

    Be safe

    Respect others and their property

    Do your best at all times



    Attendance is a key part of student academic success. When your child is not at school they are missing important information that may not be made up with a written assignment. 


    If your child is sick, please keep them at home and notify the office. To report your child’s absence call (650) 877-8838, please state the child’s name, teacher’s name, and the reason for absence. Please send a note to the office on the first day that the student returns to school. If we do not hear from the family, the student will be marked unexcused. Unexcused absences are counted towards truancy. Renewals of transfers are dependent on attendance and the number of tardies.


    We recommend that appointments are scheduled during non-school hours. However, if you need to pick up your child during school hours, please come to the office and sign your child out. If the office staff is not familiar with the person coming to the office, the person will need to show identification.



    The policy for the State of California is that absences for anything other than illness, medical appointments, and funeral of immediate family are to be marked as “unexcused”. This policy will be followed. Vacations fall into this unexcused category. Three unexcused absences will be counted as truant. A student with irregular attendance, classified as “habitual truant,” may be referred to a School Attendance Review Board (SARB).



    Only parents that have been cleared by our District Office will be allowed to volunteer. For the safety of all our children and per district policy, regular volunteers and field trip drivers are asked to complete a School Volunteer Application district form, sign a Code of Conduct, submit a copy of current driver’s license, submit the TB form, and be fingerprinted. MV parents will be approved as Level 4 volunteers, so that they may drive on field trips. Please begin the process by completing an application packet and sending a copy of your driver’s license and TB form to our MV office. The principal will then send you to have your fingerprints done locally. 


    Parent Visitation:

    Please make arrangements with the teacher in advance of your visit or when volunteering in the classroom. In order to keep the students of Monte Verde safe, we ask that all volunteers sign in at the office and obtain a visitor’s pass. If you need to deliver something to your child during the day, please bring it to the office and we will deliver it to the classroom.


    Parking and Drop Off:

    The parking lots are closed to traffic. The limited parking spaces in the lots are for staff members. The Red Zone is a no parking zone. Due to the design of the lot on Shannon, parents should not pull into the entrance to drop off students. The white zones Shannon and St. Cloud are to be used for dropping off and picking up students. If you want to accompany your child to and from campus, we ask that you park on St. Cloud, Shannon and the intersecting streets not marked as passenger loading. Students should use the gate on Shannon and avoid the driveway when coming in or out of school. Adults coming on campus to meet their children at the classroom should not arrive more than five minutes before dismissal. Parents are asked to share this information with the adult who comes to pick up your child.



    If your child has medical concerns or allergies, please make sure that the office has the medication and Hold Harmless forms completed by both the parent and the physician. Medication and forms must be submitted together. Medication must be in the original prescription container, and should be in the office by the first day of school.


    Subsidized Meal Program:

    Please complete your applications for the Federally Funded Free/Reduced lunch program. The forms will be sent home. You may also apply online. The online application is easily accessible by going to the district website (, clicking on Departments for the drop down menu and selecting Nutrition Services. On the Nutrition Services page, click the “Meal Application” and the click “Titan” and follow the prompts. Students who participated in the program last year must reapply. Parents are responsible for charges incurred before students are accepted into the program.


    Hip Pocket:

    Parent information will be sent home every Tuesday.


    Emergency Card:

    Please complete an emergency card for your child ASAP. We rely on this card to notify you when there is a problem at school. Please include numbers of people you trust to pick up your child. Students will not be released to persons not listed on the card. For the safety of our students, identification will be checked.


    Dress Code:

    Clothing should be comfortable for physical activity with appropriate coverage of body parts. Shoes should be closed toe and appropriate for running and playing. Clothing and jewelry should not be distracting. Due to safety concerns, large jewelry should not be worn, especially hoop style earrings.
