Principal’s Message:

Hello Families, 


March 1st was the end of the 2nd trimester.  However, the timelines for parents/guardians to view TK-5 grades are revised: Second Trimester report cards will be posted in Illuminate on March 22.  This will be accessible on the Illuminate parent portal site.  Thank you for your patience and understanding on this as the District worked to mitigate the impact of compromised accounts on our domain. Our highest priority will always be protecting students, staff and our community, and this includes protecting data privacy. If you’re having difficulty accessing the parent portal, please contact our office.


Our site also had some technical issues regarding our internet connection this week.  Thank you for all your understanding on this matter.  It’s really important that you use the Parent Square App to get up to date information in a timely manner.  Please take a moment to do this. 


The year certainly goes by fast as we have less than 50 days of school left! We appreciate all the families that completed their verification of residency in a timely manner.  This helps schools to plan ahead for the next school year.  Please look out for teacher emails as there will be many activities going on as we reach the end of the school year.


Thank you,

Ms. Lee

FREE Breakfast and Lunch

We will have Breakfast Service in the MUR from 8am – to the start of the bell. Both breakfast and lunch will be FREE this 2023-2024 school year. 







 


Gate Closures

Due to the safety plans, protocols, and related health and safety measures, Weibel will continue to follow the same rules as last year.

  • Parents will NOT be allowed to enter the blacktop in the mornings. Please be ready to say goodbye at the gate.

  • Little Foot and Paseo gates will be open during 8am-8:25am and again at 2:40pm. If you are dropping off at the Paseo gate, PLEASE park your car and walk your child over to the gate. DO NOT stop and create your own drop off lane – It is a BIKE lane.

  • The back school gate near the MUR will be LOCKED ALL DAY. You can still use the Little Foot gate entrance as a shortcut, but will have to walk around the school to get to the main entrance.
