    11/18/2020 - marin County returns to the red tier!

    health certifications required

    As Marin County moves back to the Red Tier, families are reminded to certify the health status of their children before sending them to school. Families receive an email every morning beginning at 6 AM (text message at 6:30 if no email is on file). If you are not receiving this information, you are urged to contact the office so that we can update your contact information. Anyone needing assistance on how to certify your child, contact our Community Liaison Ms. Pilar Sanchez or our Family Center Coordinator, Ms. Sheila Ramirez. 

    Families are also reminded of how important it is for everyone to be truthful and forthcoming when certifying their child. It takes the entire community to help us keep everyone safe from COVID-19. If your child wakes up feeling ill, do not send them to school. 

    While in the Red Tier, any child or staff member who presents themselves with a common symptom of COVID-19, they must stay home or they will be sent home. In order to return to school, we must have a negative COVID-19 test result, an alternate diagnosis made by your child's healthcare provider, or they must stay home for 10 days if you are not obtaining a COVID-19 test. 

    Common symptoms of COVID-19 are a fever of 100.4 or greater, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, headache, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting. More information can be found at Marin Health and Human Services by visiting

    For your convenience, the link to certifying your child is posted below. We thank you for your partnership and ask that you stay safe & stay healthy Falcons during this pandemic.  

    drop off & pick up zones

    Families are reminded to use the appropriate drop off and pick up zones for your child's grade level. Please note the following:

    - FRONT OF THE SCHOOL is for TK, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students.  If you have multiple children in other grade levels, including at least one in TK - 2, then you may also use the front drop off / pick up zone. Our Special Education students in a special day class in all grades (TK-8th grade) may also use the front drop off / pick up zone. 

    - JURY LOT (PARQUE DE LOS PATOS) is the drop off / pick up zone for our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students. No drop off or pick up is permitted in the front or side of the school for these students. Remember to follow the protocol as student and staff safety is our number one priority. 

    - ALL BUS RIDERS regardless of their grade level are dropped off at the front of the school and are guided to their proper entry doors to the school campus.

    - REMEMBER THAT NO FAMILIES or any non-essential people are permitted inside the school campus.
