Common Core State Standards Information for Parents:

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

Health Office News

Parents of 2014-2015  7th Grade Students:

All students entering 7th grade need proof of a Tdap (Tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis vaccine) booster shot before they will be allowed to start school.  This requirement will be met by receiving one dose of Tdap vaccine on or after the 7th birthday.

Once your child receives the Tdap vaccine, please bring his/her immunization record to the school office so a copy can be made and your child can be cleared to start school.  If you are unsure if your child has received this vaccine, please contact your health care provider.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding immunization requirements, please contact your child’s school or visit www/ for more information.

Additionally, does  your child need to take medication while at school?  If so, California Ed Code requires that any prescription or over the counter medication be ordered by a physician.  Forms are available in the health office or online for you to take to your physician over the summer so you're ready for fall.  If you have any further questions please feel free to contact the front office.

Dress Code

(BP 5132): The appropriateness of clothing in question as per this dress code will be left to the discretion of the school administration. The school administration recognizes that fashion trends may pose challenges for students in finding appropriate clothing; however, it is important to maintain a proper learning environment. Parents/guardians and students are requested to take the proper steps to ensure their clothing meets the standards of the dress code. The appropriateness of clothing will be determined by the way the clothes fit as the student participates in the regular activities of the school day (e.g. walking, sitting, standing, or moving). Inappropriately dressed students will be sent to the office with a discipline referral to change inappropriate clothing with office clothes. (Once a dress code violation has been identified, the student cannot “cover up” the violation with a sweatshirt, jacket, etc.; they must change the clothes in violation of dress code.) Violation of the dress code will result in a Discipline Referral and the loss of 5 merits for each offense. Repeated violations will result in further disciplinary action. The Dress Code is enforced at all school-sponsored activities, including dances and fieldtrips.


The following dress code guidelines apply to all regular school activities:

  1. Extreme or inappropriate make-up, hair color, or hair style resulting in a disruption of instructional activities is not acceptable.  Hair that impairs vision or eye contact is not appropriate.
  2. Shoes must be worn at all times.
  3. Clothing, jewelry, and personal items shall be free of writing, pictures, or other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane, or sexually suggestive or which advocate racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice or promote the use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, or violence.
  4. All clothing shall be appropriate for school. Garments shall conceal undergarments at all times.
    • The hem of all shorts, skirts, or dresses shall not be more than a minimum length of 5 inches above the knee. (A 3X5 index card will be used for measurement). If there is a slit in a skirt, the upper end of the slit is considered to be the edge of the garment.  Leggings, yoga pants, tights, and stockings do not alter this rule. If leggings, yoga pants, tights, or stockings are worn, a top/dress must reach a length of 5 inches between the hem and the top of the knee.
    • Pants should be worn at or above the hip with no under garments showing.
    • No revealing clothing may be worn including low-cut (no cleavage) tops, racerback tops, bare midriff tops, strapless tops, halter tops, and garments with excessive holes or fraying. ALL top straps must be at least 1” wide.  Personal parts of the body must not be inappropriately exposed. See through garments are not allowed without proper undergarments underneath. A bandeau is considered a “bra” and must not be visible.
    • No gang affiliated attire, including bandanas, may be worn.
    • Pajamas, sleepwear, slippers, blankets or other bedtime clothes are not allowed unless there is a special spirit day deeming this as acceptable.
    • Swim/beachwear may not be worn.
    • Chains, large earrings, and or jewelry with protrusions/sharp edges are not allowed.


  1. Hats, caps, hoods, and other head covering shall not be worn indoors. California Public Schools are required to allow students and staff to wear hats or other protective sun-wear outdoors during the school day. “Hats or other protective sun wear” means hats and/or other clothing that protects the student’s skin from exposure to the sun. Included in this category are baseball caps and visors. Bandanas, beanies, stocking caps, or similar items are not included in the sun-wear category. Students may only wear hats when they are outside. If a P.E. activity is in the gym or classroom, students may not wear hats. Hats must be worn in the correct manner (not backward or sideways) for sun protection. Hat policy violations will result in a loss of 5 merits and confiscation of the hat. Parents are required to pick up hats in the office.

Attendance Matters

Our goal at Pleasant Grove is to ensure that every student attends school regularly.  Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student's academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school.  Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss school--regardless of the reason-- it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent--which means missing more than the average course of an entire school year. Research shows:

♦ Children chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.

♦ By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.

♦ By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.

Absences can add up quickly. A child chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month!!

We don't want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged. Please ensure your child attends school every day and arrives on time. Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up on time every day. We want your child to be successful in school! If you have any questions or need more information please contact your child's school.

Sometimes it is clear that your child is sick. Other times it is not so easy to figure out as your child may not look so sick to you. Click here for general suggested guidelines
