Alisal Elementary 2014-2015 Walk-Through Registration

Please read the instructions below carefully. There are several links to information that students and parents must read, and forms that must be printed, completed, and signed BEFORE arriving for walk-through registration (WTR) on August 19. Please note: Some schools in the PUSD are using an online registration system. Alisal will NOT be using online registration for the 2014-2015 school year.

Prior to WTR, parents must pick up their student’s registration packet at the school office. Pick-up dates are Friday, August 15 and Monday, August 18 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please check the emergency card and make changes or updates as needed. It is vital that you ensure all cell phone numbers are current, and that there is more than 1 emergency contact of each child. These numbers are vital in emergency situations.

Alisal’s WTR will be held Tuesday, August 19 in the multi-purpose room from 8 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 2-5 p.m. You must present the emergency card, 2 proofs of residency, and the 3 signature pages from the Alisal website. You will receive your child’s classroom assignment after the required forms are submitted and you have visited the WTR stations in the multi-purpose room.

The links marked “required” below must be printed, updated as necessary, signed and brought to WTR. Please see the additional links for further school information.

School district residents must provide an original, current utility bill (such as PG&E, telephone, water, garbage), recent close of escrow papers, or recently signed rental/lease agreement (with name, address and telephone number of lessor). Cell phone bills, mortgage or rent payment receipts, or banking statements are not acceptable as proof. If registration pre-dates the start of school attendance by more than a month, a second utility bill may be requested after the first month of student attendance. Post office box, bank statement, driver’s license, credit card bills, personal check, property tax statement, mortgage statement, AFDC statements, or cell phone statements are NOT acceptable as proof of residency. Falsification of an address may result in denying the enrollment of a student.

If you are unable to attend WTR on August 19, you may turn in the required paperwork and forms on Friday, August 22 between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. in the Alisal office. Due to the volume of items received on WTR day, we will not be able to accept/process registration information in the office between August 20-21.

Alisal’s Parent Teachers Association (PTA) would like to invite you to join and support our great school and kids. Come find out what fun opportunities there are in which you can participate. If you would like to join PTA you can do so at Walk- through Registration (checks can be made payable to Alisal PTA). Along with joining the PTA, you can purchase Alisal spirit wear, yearbooks, etc.

Child Nutrition Services personnel will be available if you would like to pre-purchase lunches for your student(s) for the 2014-15 school year. (A separate check is needed payable to CNS).

We do not post class lists; the only way to receive your child(ren)’s class assignment before school starts will be to complete the Walk-through Registration process.

     Important notice regarding student safety

    and campus access


Our staff has been working on more progressive measures focused on safety of the school. We value your children and want to ensure their safety as well as educating them.

As a result of insurance company recommendations, all classroom doors are now locked throughout the school day. Additionally, students have begun depositing their backpacks in designated spaces on the playground as they arrive in the morning. These changes have resulted in improved classroom safety and less unsupervised AM hallway activity, respectively.

Beginning Monday, January 6, all parents are to drop off their children at one of two gates beginning at 8 a.m., as this is when campus supervision is on duty. The two gates that will be open will be the front gate located next to the MP room and the rolling gate in back of school. No parents should be on campus.

If you wish to walk your child to their classroom, you MUST sign in at the office and wear a visitor sticker, then sign out as you leave. If you wish to come into the campus to pick up your child at 2:05, you MUST sign in at the office as a visitor, wear a visitor sticker and sign out as you leave.

For students who come to school at the late staggered time (grades 1-3), the front MP gate will be the only open gate. Parents are to drop off their students at that gate. If you wish to walk your child to their classroom, you MUST sign in at the office and wear a visitor sticker, then sign out as you leave.

For the 2:05 dismissal, the only gate that will be open is the front MP gate. ALL grades 1-3 students dismissed at 2:05 will come out of that gate. The back rolling gate will NOT be open at this time.

For the 2:50 dismissal, the back rolling gate and the front MP gate will be open. Staff members will be there to ensure that students exit the school grounds. Parents must wait OUTSIDE the gates for their children.

The current TK and kindergarten drop-off and pick-up procedures will continue.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with our new safety procedure.
