Volunteers Needed for Stop, Drop & Go Program

Our school is under construction, during which time we would need to use the front of the school on 34th to drop off our kids. For the safety of our children, we need your help. We would like each classroom’s parents to volunteer for one week to help during the drop off time in the morning from 8:20 to 8:45 AM.  And this year, we are asking 2 parent from the designated class to assist the school staff each day.

Field Day!

The kids had a blast today running and jumping through obstacles, tossing bean bags and doing the egg and spoon race! A big thank to our PE teachers for organizing the event and for all the parents who volunteered.  

Welcome New Families!

Dear Kindergarten Families,

Welcome and congratulations on becoming part of the Stevenson school community.  This letter is to invite you to a New Parent Coffee Social, Friday May 20, 2016 at 9 am in our Cafeteria.  Please sign in at the Front Garden Gate on 34th Avenue for a visitors’ badge.  This is not an orientation, but strictly a “Meet and Greet” time for parents (no children this time, please) to mingle with each other, as well as meet current Stevenson parents along with the Principal.

Our second opportunity to meet you will be at our Kindergarten Orientation Meeting on Friday, August 12, 2016 at 9 am.  Our kindergarten teachers will provide you with important information that will help to prepare you and your child for the first day of school, which is Monday, August 15, 2016.  You will also get a chance to meet other parents and get to know our PTA.

Our Kindergarten teachers are looking forward to meeting the parents and our newest little “Dolphins.”    Refreshments will be provided and the PTA will have school Dolphin T-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies available for purchase.  Kathy Tom and Mimi Sarkisian, Directors of the KEEP after school program, and a representative from the “Mandarin All Stars” after school language class will also be at the meeting.

Please allow me to introduce myself, Mrs. Diane Lau-Yee, the Principal of Stevenson Elementary School. It is my honor and privilege to serve this community and the needs of your children.  I am a mother of three sons who attend SFUSD public schools, and have taught in SFUSD for 17 years.  I was formerly the Assistant Principal of Gordon J. Lau Elementary School, a school named after my late father.  Stevenson, with its inquisitive student body, talented staff, active PTA, and National Blue Ribbon Award status, is definitely a school committed to student excellence and community service.  We can all be proud to be a part of it!

I am looking forward to meeting each one of you at our Coffee Social on May 20th and later at our Orientation on August 12th.  For parents who are unable to attend, handouts provided during the meeting will be available for pick-up in the office on the first day of school.  I am confident that your willingness to take an active part in our school will make this a stimulating and rewarding year.    Thank you in advance for your support of our school and your child’s education.  On behalf of the staff at Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary School, welcome to the family!

Sincerely,

Diane Lau-Yee

White Zone Safety Reminder

Hello, Families!

GREAT JOB on the first day of construction!  The children were very respectful in staying away from the construction fence and keeping safe.

Now, I need your help regarding the White Zone for cars.  
Please follow these safety rules:
1) Please do not open your car door unless the parent volunteer or safety monitors have signaled you to do so.
2) Please keep your car moving forward as space allows so that we are opening the car doors at the front of the line. If you open your door in the end of the line, you are holding up the entire line of cars behind you.
3) Please do not park or exit your vehicle in the STOP DROP GO lanes. If you must exit your vehicle to assist your child, please find a nearby parking spot.
4)  Dismissal times are Kindergarten 2:30 pm; 1st-5th 2:40 pm.  If you arrive earlier than these official times and your child is not yet dismissed, you may be asked to circle the block so we can keep the line moving.  Please do not come early and park in the white zone.  If you would like to come early and park, please find a legal parking space.  
5) PLEASE, DO NOT BLOCK DRIVEWAYS.  A very upset neighbor drove by to yell at me today!
6) PLEASE DO NOT JAYWALK.  PLEASE DO NOT DIRECT YOUR CHILD TO JAYWALK, EITHER.
7)  Please do not double park and drop off/pick up your kids from an illegal lane!  It is very dangerous!
8) DO NOT DISRESPECT, TALK BACK TO, OR INSULT OUR STAFF and VOLUNTEERS.   We are there for the safety of all. 
9)  Above all, tickets and fines are expensive.  However, our children's lives are priceless.  Please be safe!

Thank you for your cooperation!


Sincerely,
Principal Lau-Yee

 

各位家長們,

學校第一天工程進行顺利!

學生們都禮貌自覺地遠離工程範圍和保持安全。 

現在我還需要你們協助保持白線上落車安全.

請遵守以下規則:

1) 在未收到家長義工或過馬路安全督導員指示前不要打開你的車門.

2)請盡量把車輛駛至最前的空閒、才停下.譲小孩子落車。如你在後方已經停車開門落車、這會阻塞交通.

3) 請不要在白線範圍泊車落車. 如果你一定要落車協助你的孩子落車,請在附近找車位停泊.


4) 放學時間幼稚園二時半、一至五年班二時四十分. 如你在正式放學時間前己到達,  你的小孩子未下學,我們可能會要求你駛離再折返,以便譲接送車龍保持流動,請勿提早到達泊在白線上, 如你希望提早到達及停車等候, 請在附近找車位停泊.

5)請切勿阻塞別人屋前車道, 單今天已經有很不满的隣居投訢! 

6)請切勿在馬路中心過馬路,更不要教你的孩子在馬路中心過馬路.

7)請切勿雙重泊車讓你的孩子在馬路中心上落車, 這樣非常危險!

8)請尊重我們維持交通秩序的教職員,義工, 過馬路安全督導員,不要向他們吵駡或侮辱他們, 他們是在保障你的孩子安全。

9)最後謹記,交通罰款非常昂貴, 但是你小孩的性命更是無價的.請注意安全!

多謝合作!

Rainy Day Protocol

Dear Parents, 

Here are the new Rainy Day Protocols in case of rain! A hard copy in English and Chinese will be passed out shortly! 

RAINY DAY PROTOCOL

If it rains before INTAKE, all pupils will report directly to the: 

Cafeteria (K,1st, and 2nd graders) by 8:40 am.   
Auditorium (3rd, 4th, 5th graders) by 8:40 am. 
Please do not send your children directly to the classrooms. 

Please keep the Breezeway clear in order to serve as a passing lane. Parents will be asked to leave in order to avoid congestion.   Teachers will arrive to the designated areas by or before 8:40 am as it is always a little bit hectic on rainy days.   

The morning Yard duty teacher and Ms. Mastrangelo will help supervise the Auditorium (3rd, 4th, 5th graders).  Ms. Low will dismiss classes in order of teachers arriving to pick up classes in the Auditorium.  Students only, please. 

Ms. Phoebe and Ms. Purita will supervise the Cafeteria (K, 1st, 2nd graders).  Ms. Lau-Yee will dismiss classes in order of teachers arriving to pick up classes in the Cafeteria.  Students only, please. 
  
DISMISSAL: 

K parents will line up in the Main Office Hallway and classes will come out to parents with teachers.  Please do not crowd the classrooms but wait until the teachers lead the students to you. 

1st and 2nd grade parents will line up directly outside their child’s classroom for pick up in the hallways along the walls.  Please keep the center aisles clear for passing and do not linger to allow for easy access. 

Bungalows B1, B2, B3, B4 will dismiss directly from Bungalow doors. 

101, 102, 103, 104, 105 will meet under the Breezeway for guardian pick up. 

CAR pick up in white-zone on 34th:  Please be patient as we wait for the students with car pick up to walk to the main office breezeway.  It takes some time, and they will arrive around 2:45 pm.  We will help load them in the cars; please do not park and block our white zone.  If you are early, we may ask you to circle around the block or you can park your car in a non-white zone spot and walk in to pick up your child. 

KEEP in the Cafeteria
EXCEL in the Auditorium
Mandarin in Bungalows

PACE, HUL, and Meijia students will wait in the Main Office Breezeway for car pick up. 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
