School Hours: Arrival and Departure: "The playground is open at 8:35 a.m. Children should not arrive before 8:35 a.m., as supervision can not be provided. Preschool children should arrive at 8:30 a.m. and must be accompanied to and from school by adults. All students should walk home or be picked up promptly upon dismissal, unless they are enrolled in our After Care or After School Recreation programs. Students who are not picked up promptly will be automatically enrolled in After Care or After School Recreation and parents will be charged for their care."
Snacks and School Lunches: School Lunches: "Pacific School is extremely proud of its award-winning school lunch program. School lunches are prepared fresh from scratch each day and feature organic and local ingredients as much as possible. Students are encouraged to participate in the nutritious school lunch program and may purchase school lunches on a monthly basis at $70 for 20 lunches ($3.50 per lunch) paid in advance. ALL FAMILIES are requested to please complete the CONFIDENTIAL application for free or reduced price ($0.40) meals. Doing so will not hurt the finances of the school and allows us to have accurate information about our student body when applying for grants and government programs. The free and reduced price lunch application form is provided to all students at the beginning of the year and may also be obtained at any time from the school website (http://www.pacificesd.org/forms-for-families.html) or in the school office. Parents may purchase a school lunch for $5.00 per lunch paid in advance at the school office. Students may also bring healthy lunches from home. Children may not bring candy or sodas to school. Lunchtime for all students is part of our curriculum as children sit with a staff member and practice table manners. Students also learn about nutrition at this time."
Parent/Community Activities: Classroom Volunteers: "We are eager to have parents volunteer in our classrooms, either on a regular basis or a one-time basis to discuss or demonstrate a particular interest or talent. Some parents who volunteer on a regular weekly basis may listen to individual children read and generally assist the classroom teacher. If you are interested, contact your classroom teacher. You must sign and adhere to the guidelines in the Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement (found on our website here: http://www.pacificesd.org/forms-for-families.html )"

Pacific School's First Annual Student Film Festival
Get your smart phone lenses cleaned off, find a simple movie editor, and create a short film to show at the January 27th Pacific School Movie Night beginning at 6:30pm.
Movies should include your student in the creation of the film.
Movies need to be under 3 minutes and non-malicious (not making fun of anyone). More submission details will be shared in the New Year.
Here are some themes to get you thinking about your creation:
A special note of thanks for the caring folks who've been helping Pacific School weather the winter storms. All the rain has caused leaks and repairs to be fixed. Thank you to Tiago's grandfather, Temo, plus Andy Wilson and Ryan Judson for all stepping in with handyman skills to keep everyone comfortable, safe, and dry at Pacific Elementary during this winter season.
