School Gate Closing Time

For the safety of our students the school front gate will close every day at 4:45 p.m.  All USC After school programs end no later than 4:00 p.m., so please make sure to pick up your child on time. 

If you have a child in the YDP or YS after school programs, and need to pick up your child after 4:45 p.m., but before 6:00 p.m. please contact Coach Washing at 323-219-7039.

I apologize for any inconvenience this new policy may cause, but it is necessary for the safety of our students and the after school staff.

The 4 B's of Positive Behavior

As part of our Best Behavior initiatives we model, teach and reinforce the following:

 

 

     Be Safe

     Be Respectful

     Be Responsible
     Be a Peacemaker.

 

 

 

 

Students have also learned how to STEP when they encounter conflict.  STEP is a 4-step process for solving problems:
 

  1. S- Say the problem without blame
  2. T- Think of solutions that are safe and respectful
  3. E- Explore consequences
  4. P – Pick the solution where everyone wins


 

Before using the STEP process to solve a problem it is very important for children to be calm.  One way to help students calm down is to have them:

 

1) Stop,

2) Say how they feel, and

3) use a calming down strategy

 


 

 

Some calming down strategies are breathing, counting to 10, or using positive talk.  Positive talk might sound like, “I can solve this problem” or “Everything is going to be okay.”

 

Calming down and solving problems is not something students automatically know how to do.  We have to teach them and give them opportunity to practice often. When your child has a conflict with someone outside of school, please help them practice calming down and using the STEP process to solve the problem.

Learning to solve conflict is an important life skill students can use now and forever! 

School Attendance Matters

Our goal is that every student be in school at least

96% of the year.

This means no student should miss school more than 7 days throughout the entire school year.  

 

School attendance is very important!  There is a strong correlation between students with good attendance and students who are academically successful.  Students with good attendance tend to have higher high school graduation rates and tend to achieve higher levels of schooling.  So, please bring your child to school every day and on time.

 

School starts at 8:06 a.m., so in order to be considered on time students have to be in class by 8:06 a.m.  Please make sure your child arrives at school no later than 8:00 a.m. so they have enough time to make it to class by 8:06 a.m.  Thank you for all your help and support in making sure your child maximizes his/her learning potential.   

 

Attendance Band Number of Absences                       
Perfect Attendance 0 Absences
Good Attendance 1-7 Absences
 

At Risk Attendance

8-14 Absences


 
Poor Attendance  15 or More Absences
