School Wide Expectations

Be Safe

Be Respectful

Be Responsible

Congratulations to Ms. Stentiford’s, Ms. DelaGarza’s, Ms. Ingco’s, Ms. Jones’s, Ms. Lamas’s, and Ms. Barrett’s classes for earning 10 ROBO class tickets!  They will receive an extra recess.

General Reminders/Updates

  • Thanks to everyone who attended movie night!  PTA put on a great event for our community.  Please take time to join the PTA and volunteer if you have time. 
  • Follow PTA on Instagram @camarenarobopta
  • School starts at 8:15.  Please arrive on time.  If you arrive at 8:15 or after, students will need to stop for the office for a green slip.
  • If it is raining on Monday, we will follow our rainy day schedule.  In the morning students that arrive early will start their day in the MPR.  At 8:00, students transition to the covered areas right outside of the classrooms.  Recess will be indoors and lunch will be in the MPR.
  • When it rains, traffic becomes even worse than a regular day- be prepared.

Attendance Matters

School attendance is required by law. Parents/guardians of children between the ages of six and eighteen years of age are responsible for sending their children to school every day and on time. When students attend class regularly and on time, opportunities for successful learning increase; consequently, the importance of regular on-time attendance cannot be overemphasized.

Chronic Absence

Students are identified as chronically absent when they have missed 10% or more days for both excused and unexcused absences in relation to the total days enrolled for any given school year.

To partner with parent(s)/guardian(s) regarding chronically absent students, schools may request information as to why students are missing so many days of excused and/or unexcused absences. School nurses may ask parent(s)/guardian(s) to sign a release of information for the students’ attending physician to best support the students’ medical needs at school to the extent possible.

Additionally, parent(s)/guardian(s) and students may be placed on a Student Attendance Review Team (SART) contract as a means of intervention to support positive attendance.
