Beginning February 10, 2015, Parents may pick up 2015 Kindergarten Registration Packets in the school office. If your child turns 5 on or before September 1st, 2015, it is time to register for kindergarten. Registration packets will be available in the school office February 10th, 2015. Completed registration packets will be accepted in the school office beginning March 2, 2015. (Office hours for Registration 9:00-3:00 M-F)
Please note that in addition to the registration packet, parents must have the following items:
* Proof of residence (Three pieces of documentation are required. Acceptable items include PG&E bill, San Jose Water Company bill, etc.)
* Original birth certificate or other legal document showing date of birth (i.e. passport, or baptismal certificate.)
* Immunization record (California schools enforce a "no shots, no school policy")
Parents of 6th Graders - you will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old. Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May. If you haven't done so already, check your child's immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination. Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to Dove Hill School so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT. Your child will not get his/her class schedule the first day of school.
Dear Parents: Please take this survey about our school safety.
It is important for all of the students, parents and staff to feel safe at Dove Hill! Thank You!
Please keep your child's lunch account up to date. You may put money on to your child's account at any time. This is a safe, efficient way to safeguard your money (so students don't have to carry it around) It will also get them through the line faster than using cash. You can put money on your account online @www.myschoolbucks.com or by dropping off cash or checks to the school office. Please make checks payable to CNS and not the school. Lunch applications are still available in the office. If your child brings lunch, please assist the office and the classroom by having your child bring it to school in the morning. We really want to minimize the interruptions in the classroom that interrupt or take away student learning. Thank you!

Our Secure campus procedures have had overwhelming support. Parents want to feel that their child is protected and safe at school. Teachers have reported a calmer and smoother opening of their day and a sense of security in their rooms. We appreciate that the change was an adjustment for families but want you to know that the children have adjusted well and are safe. Our dismissal has had some challenges and we are working on making necessary improvements. Here are a few areas we could use your support.
* Be sure that whom ever picks up your child waits back from the gate so that all students may exit.
* Be sure to pull-forward and NOT STOP in the bus lane.
* If you have to speak to a teacher, please report to the office and the teacher will be notified.
Dove Hill's Testing Window is May 4th through May 22nd.
As always, please be sure your child is rested and prepared. Students need to come to school every day and only stay home if ill. It is a challenge to make-up tests and replicate the classroom setting. Students need to make every effort to be present daily, which will help him or her to do their best work.
Thank you in advance for supporting your child during testing days!
