Nov. 5th Principal's Update

Dear OBE families,

This past week two announcements were sent from SDUSD regarding Friday, November 12th. The first was regarding a proposal to make the 12th a day off for students. Understandably, this news alarmed a number of families who would have to find childcare options on very short notice. A second notice was sent the following day letting families know school will be in session on Friday. Any student who does not attend that day will be marked "excused". 

I am well aware these messages caused frustration and confusion. I do hope you and your family will be able to enjoy the November 11th holiday and perhaps reflect on the meaning behind the day off, to remember and honor those who choose to serve our country.

In other news, the last full of week of November, Monday the 15th through Friday the 19th, will be minimum days to allow for parent/teacher conferences. Dismissal that week will be 12:15pm for all students. Conferences will be once again held via Zoom.

Our lost and found will be out once again on the 12th. In the morning it will be outside the gates on Newport Avenue and in the afternoon it will be out near the small parking lot on Santa Monica Avenue. During conference week it will be out every day at the above mentioned locations. Students also have opportunities to look for items during both morning recess and lunch recess. Please ask your students to look through the cart as we have quite a few items. Any items not picked up by the 19th will be donated to charity.
