NEW 2019-2020 School Hours 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Valarie L. Garcia, Principal Dear Baskin Parents:

Welcome back to a new school year! I am ready and excited to be back for another great year as Principal at Baskin! This year, our campus theme is “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work” aligning our goals with the district’s theme “THE POWER OF US”.

Baskin will continue to be a school Where Children Come First! Every staff member is committed to providing the highest level of quality instruction. Together as partners, we can ensure all students succeed. This year, we are continuing to teach our Agricultural unit through Gardening. We will be adding a Robotics Club sponsored by 3rd Grade and our Master Teachers. We have a new Music teacher who will continue with our Baskin Choir. We are also working on continuing the Orchestra-Strings Unit the latter part of the year. Thank you to our wonderful parents and our Boy Scouts, Baskin was also selected to participate in the “PepsiCo Recycling Program”. This program will bring funds that we can use to purchase resources for our students. We are asking everyone to donate plastic bottles and cans to Baskin. A flyer will be going home soon. 

We will continue with Meet the Teacher, Open House and Family Academic Nights. Our awesome PTA is coordinating our Fall Festival and PTA nights. Volunteers are welcomed with open arms. Please fill out a Volunteer Application if you would like to volunteer. It takes 24 hours to get an approval on your application. Please let us know when that happens so we can become partners. Additional information regarding schedules, along with dates and times for events will be posted on our new website so you may make plans to attend.

I have included a few campus-wide general procedures and reminders that are best practices for our school:  The school day begins at 8:00 am and ends at 3:30 pm (the extra 10 minutes is to include supper for our children). 8:06 am is considered tardy. As a campus we did not meet the state’s expected Attendance Rate of 96% last year. Instructional time is important, please minimize late arrivals, early pick-ups and absences from school. Children will be signed in at the office by parents if they are tardy, then they may proceed to class. If you need to pick up your child early for an appointment, please do so no later than 2:45 pm. This allows us to better serve you in a timely manner without interfering with after school dismissal. For your child’s safety, parents must present an ID before requesting early release. If children are picked up later than 3:45pm they must be signed out in the office.

Dismissal procedures remain the same taking place in the Gym for K-5, except for PreK. This year for safety purposes, PreK will be dismissing from their classrooms in the PreK Building. Parents please help us keep our students and staff safe during dismissal. SA Fire Dept. regulations do not permit parking in the fire lanes, please use the parking lot if you need to visit with anyone. It is also a state offense to use a cell phone in a School Zone. Thank you for avoiding traffic congestion in our neighborhood by keeping the traffic moving in the car drop-off and pick-up lanes. All staff will be on duty to ensure student safety.

Together as partners we are looking forward to another successful year!

Sincerely,
Valarie L. Garcia, Principal
