Camp Silver Spur Reminders

Thank you for supporting our Outdoor Education program by selling candy bars. The money for the first box sold was due on Tuesday, January 30th. You may continue to sell more boxes beyond that time. If your child is not going to camp, you are also welcome to help us sell candy bars. They are $1.00 each, and there are 60 candy bars per box. This fundraiser helps get us closer to our goals! If interested, please see Mrs. Grewe.

All Permission Slips, Authorization to Administer Medication Forms, Behavior Contracts and Donations are due by March 29th!

If your child will be required to take any medication, including over the counter medication, e.g., Tylenol, you must have a doctor fill out the Authorization to Administer Medication form. Please continue to send in your $250.00 donations. The donations per student include transportation, food, lodging, supplies and hired staff at Silver Spur. If we do not reach our goals, we will need to cancel outdoor education.

Let's make this happen!

NO SCHOOL ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12

As a result of the poor air quality and the ongoing wildfires, all schools in Mt. Diablo Unified School District will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, October 12th.  Your child’s safety was the primary factor leading to this decision. Currently, it is being reported that only three percent of the fires have been contained, and we expect that air quality will be even more severe tomorrow. 

Pending containment of the fires, we ask that you make a short term plan for your children should we need to close on Friday.  We will be in contact with you as soon as possible should that be necessary.  Updates will continue to be posted on the district website.
