RE: Back to School information
It has been quite an interesting summer in the Big Oak Flat/Groveland Unified School District and we are just about ready for the 2016-17 school year. We have hired several new employees, done quite a bit of work at the school sites and finalized our new website. Some of you are probably wishing for more summer time, and some of you are undoubtedly anxious for school to start. Those of us working in the district are ready to go!
New Website – We are very excited to be able to open our new website to our district and community just prior to the opening of school. We knew it was time to update our website and we believe you will like the new features we have included.
Cafeteria – Our cafeteria staff is dedicated to make sure they make, ”healthy meals our students will enjoy”. We want to be sure our students are looking forward to what is being made in the cafeteria each day, and want to be sure everyone who qualifies and signs up, eats at school every day. Last year we saw many students bringing unhealthy lunches to school, and some students not eating lunch at all. This is unacceptable, and with the national nutrition standards our staff follows, our lunches are super healthy.
Before School Starts:
Tenaya – Attend one of the two new and required registration nights provided at the school cafeteria on Monday, August 15 and Thursday, August 18 from 4-7pm. You will fill out paperwork and get signed up for the appropriate programs. Pick up paperwork in the school office on August 11th or 12th. For questions, call 962-7846.
Tioga High – Call the school office the week of August 15th to schedule an appointment for Thursday, August 18 or Friday, August 18 to get your schedule of classes. Call 962-4763.
Don Pedro High — Call the school office the week of August 15th to schedule an appointment for Wednesday, August 17th or Thursday, August 18th to get your schedule of classes. Call 852-2864. Come in and meet the new principal, Mr. Rob Egger.
Best wishes for a great school year for your son and/or daughter. I’ll see you at school.
