Welcome To George Hall Elementary School!
First Day of School is Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Welcome back! We are excited about the 2015 - 2016 school year. There are a few changes this year and the most evident is our blended calendar. This means we had a longer summer break and three breaks during the year - October, winter and spring. All the schools in the San Mateo Foster City School District are on the same calendar.
First day of school Schedule:
TK and Kindergarten 8:00 - 12:25 p.m.
First - Third Grade 8:00 - 12:25 p.m.
Fourth and Fifth Grade 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Please make sure you child is on time to school every day and has good attendance. Students should not be absent more than six days per school year. High absentee and tardy rates impact student learning, behavior, and social emotional well-being. This year we continue to focus on attendance in all grades, especially TK and Kindergarten. Teaching children to be on time and with regular attendance builds positive habits that are necessary life skills. When students are absent, they are missing out on important instruction, collaboration and experiences that are preparing them for the future. If your child is sick, please call the school office to report the absence. Vacations and trips are considered unexcused absences. We look forward to working collaboratively with students and families to improve attendance. Please keep us informed about absences so we can form a supportive partnership.
We look forward to another engaging year filled with fun, friendships, projects and collaboration. The school office is open daily until 4:00 p.m, so please call or stop by if you have questions or forms to return.
