Day 2


Thank you for a great first day of school! Here are a few reminders as the

days and weeks move ahead:

Colina Connection Updates

To stay up to date with PTSA activities, news and volunteer opportunities,

please visit the Colina PTSA website and sign up to receive updates of

our newsletter. While on the site, you can buy membership, send your

donation and participate!

Parent Access to Campus- With middle school comes some natural

anxieties. We have worked hard with WEB to create many opportunities

for making the transition from elementary to middle exciting and

welcoming. Parents, it is best to begin the process of allowing

independence to flourish and perhaps saying goodbye in the car or at the

gate; having your parent walk you on campus is not necessarily the most

popular choice these days. If your student is finding some difficulty and

you need that time to assist them, we will be asking that parents sign into

the office's Raptor System to receive a campus pass. Parents will need

their driver's license to scan in.

Pick Up/Drop Off & Parking Lots – THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

To help expedite the drop off, please have your student sitting on the

passenger side of the car with back pack next to them for a quick and

easy drop off. Please follow the direction of campus supervisors and

leave extra time until routines are in place. Remember, it is

recommended to turn right into Colina from Hillcrest Drive if you are using

the internal drop off/pick up traffic pattern. Alternate drop off/pick up

locations will be along Rancho Road; please do not use any lot at

Ascension, we always want to be good neighbors. Reminder that TOPD

motor enforcement will be out and enforcing speed, cellphones, seatbelts,

as well as monitoring parking and no parking areas. Please be safe and

courteous out there,it will get easier!

Schedules: Please be sure your student has their schedule written into

their assignment notebook for tomorrow as, we had quite a few students

waiting in line for schedule reprints which created some unnecessary

anxiety for them.

ID Cards: Students received their temporary ID Cards today. Students

need to have these with them during the school day. Once school photos

are taken we will issue their permanent 2019/2020 ID.

Lunches- important to remind your child to throw out their uneaten

lunches and not keep them in their lockers overnight! With the heat we

are experiencing, ants will likely be on the move and looking for a meal.

“A” period will start promptly at 7:55 am with period 1 beginning at 9:00

am. Students with a traditional 9:00 am start time can come onto campus

at 8:30 am otherwise they will be directed to the Boys & Girls Club for

supervision. Likewise, students who dismiss at 2:19 pm will need to be

picked up by 2:45 pm or they too will be directed to the Boys & Girls Club

for supervision.

Reminder, electronic devices/cellphones must be turned off and in student

during the school day. Phones must be stored in a locker and may not be

on their person during the school day. Students may use their cell phones

at the blue benches before school and at lunch; Colina assumes no

liability for lost or stolen cell phones. (Please encourage your students to

keep locker combinations secret!)

space on the 7th grade team, a 6th grade student has to be clearly more
