Residency Verification Forms Due!

On January 29th  you will receive an email from Informed K12 regarding the required annual Residency Verification.  The email will include a form that includes your student’s information.  You will need to upload two current proofs of residency (within the previous 30 days.)  Please do not upload your ID/driver’s license as this is not considered an acceptable proof of residency. 

Once you sign and submit the form, it will go directly to your child’s current school of attendance for processing.

If you do not see the email, please check your SPAM/junk email folders. 

Thank you.



Attendance Counts!

This is the time of year when winter weather takes a toll on school attendance. Road conditions and rain can make it hard to get your children to school. So can illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers, earaches, and COVID-19.

These absences, even if they are excused, break the routine of daily attendance which can impact students feeling connected and engaged in learning. Please consider these steps to keep your children healthy and in school this winter.

  1. Develop back up plans for getting your children to school. Check who can give your children a ride if you can’t take them, or form a “walking school bus” to walk to school with other families.  
  2. If your children get sick or you are concerned about Covid or the flu, talk to your child’s medical provider or the school nurse for advice.
  3. Stomach pain and headaches can be signs of anxiety and may not be reasons for keeping a child home. If you feel that anxiety or stress is playing a role, talk to your child’s teacher, the school nurse, counselor or your medical provider about how best to support your child.
  4. Encourage children to wash their hands before and after eating and after using the restroom.
  5.   Encourage healthy habits such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, drinking fluids and getting exercise. 

Let us know how we can help you. If you’re having trouble, need resources or advice, please call us at 510-797-5940 and ask to speak with Jennifer Mehta or Roxanna Ramirez-Mitchell.

Thank you for partnering with us!
