Each year, students in grades three through eight and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on their grade level: • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy and mathematics in grades three through eight and grade eleven • California Science Test (CAST) in grades five and eight and once in high school The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments and the CAST are online tests that measure what your student knows and is able to do.

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 AND 2 doses of Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine. 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's immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination and if they had 2nd does of Varicella vaccine. Once the shots are completed, bring in the immunization record to the school office so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT. Your Child will not be able to attend the 1st day of school in August if these requirements are not met. Thank you.

We have received updated ESD food and nutritional guidelines. We have added our guidelines as a school as well. It is extremely important that all parents and teachers follow them to ensure the health of our children. Children with allergies and/or specific diets are placed at risk if we fail to do so. We are no longer allowing parents or other family members to bring birthday treats that they have purchased or made themselves that do not meet state nutritional guidelines such as cupcakes, cookie, etc. If it is important to you to send something on that special day, "birthday surprises" like stickers, pencils, erasers, etc. are more appropriate and useful. Special parties at school will need to go through our Child Nutritional Services (CNS) department if food is going to be present. Our teachers will notify you if such events will be taking place. Information on CNS and their nutritional guidelines can be found on the Evergreen School District website

As we reach mid way of the school year it is critical that emergency cards be updated with current information. The staff uses these cards to contact parents in the event of an emergency. Moreover, students will only be released to the people listed on the emergency card. If your phone number or addresses changes, please notify the office immediately. If you have already registered with "Parent portal" and have updated your contact information we thank you. We encourage all parents to register on Parent portal at www.eesd.org or on our school web page and click on parent portal.

ABSENCES AND TARDIES Dove Hill conforms to state policies for excused and unexcused absences and tardies. Our district also has a Phone Call-Out system that will call a student's home when he or she is absent. Whether it is an excused or unexcused absence, the system calls to add another layer of accountability in the whereabouts of a student. However, it is still very important that you call us to let us know if your son or daughter is ill so we can mark him or her as an excused absence. TARDIES please do your very best to get your son or daughter to school on time. It is important for him or her to get off to a smooth start. It is also important to their classmates and teachers. Being to school ON TIME is respectful and needed when there are so many students to account for and so much to learn each day. Thank you to all the students who come to school on time every day except when ill.
