Notice for Online Lunch Payments:

MDUSD has discontinued the use of MySchoolBucks for payments to students’ meal accounts. Please sign up on the new website Titan School Solutions to continue managing your student’s account.

All prior year’s meal account balances were transferred to Titan on Jul. 23, 2018. Please check your Titan account to see the transfer, not MySchoolBucks.  MSB does not show the transfer nor does it have the correct current balance for your account.

If you have a student who has graduated or moved out of district and would like a refund or transfer balance to a sibling, please email William Chong your student’s name, ID number (both students for transfers) and mailing address (for refunds).

NEW PROCEDURE

If you have to pick your child up early from school, please go to the front office and sign your student out. The office ladies will call the classroom and let the teacher know you are coming. Please go to the classroom, knock on the door and wait for your child to come out. Please do not disturb the class at this time. Thank you.

 

DROP OFF PROCEDURES

Our continued goal at Valle Verde is to keep every student happy, productive and safe on this campus. Please revisit the procedures for our drop off and pick up areas at the front of the school.

  • Remember that during school hours parking lots are only for staff, school buses and handicapped drivers only. These areas are not drop off/pick up zones.
  • Please follow California driving laws. No U-turn should occur at any point along Peachwillow in front of the school. Drive the appropriate speed limit. Slow down and be mindful of pedestrians when passing the front of the school. Do not block the parking lot driveways at any time.
  • Do not park in red zones (red curb) at any time.
  • Use the designated crosswalk when crossing the street, including when you are escorting your child(ren) across the street. When you are driving, please stop for pedestrians in the crosswalks, and remain stopped until all pedestrians are safely out of the crosswalk.
  • Follow the white zone (white curb) procedures. These areas have been designated for the specific purpose of dropping off/picking up students. These designated areas are designed for you to pull as far forward as possible, allow your child to safely enter or exit your vehicle, (preferably on the sidewalk side of your vehicle) then carefully move back out into the flow of traffic on Peachwillow. These areas are not meant for you to park and leave your vehicle. The driver should be at the wheel of the car at all times. If you feel the need to park, leave your car, or walk onto campus, please park on one of the side neighborhood streets away from the white zones.
  • Please note that there are time constrictions on the street signs at the white zones. Although not posted on the signs, the rules apply for early Wednesday release times. Please do not park in these areas during early release on Wednesdays.

Most importantly, model following the law and safety procedures. Practice the life skills of patience, responsibility and cooperation. Walking is good for all of us and may be an enjoyable special time with your child.

 

 

CLIMATE SURVEY 2019-We need to hear your voices!!

The California Department of Education requires that all districts identify a local indicator for assessing school climate and parent engagement for their LCAP. To meet this requirement, Mt. Diablo is using WestEd’s California Healthy Kids Survey for parents/guardians and community members.  Live links can be found on the district website www.mdusd.org and, once the site is identified, can be taken in English or Spanish.  All responses should be submitted online.  The survey information will also be agendized at all SSC, ELAC, PTA, PFC, and other parent/ community meetings.  The survey window will be open from March 1-March 31, 2019. 

 

 

VALLE VERDE CHILDREN’S CENTER: Need before and/or after school care?  Valle Verde Children’s Center (VVCC) is a private, non-profit, before and after school program on Valle Verde Elementary School grounds.

We provide your child with a safe, fun and nurturing environment in which to explore many areas such as art, music, sports, science, cooking and computers. We also provide a quiet environment for homework.

We have both full and part-time spots available for children in TK/Kindergarten through 5th grade. We are open from 7 AM - 6 PM, Monday - Friday. We are also open during winter break, spring break, and some holidays. We are closed on major holidays. We also provide an awesome full-day summer program. As a non-profit organization, all of our tuition goes to support our wonderful program.

FIELD TRIPS: We love our volunteers!! If you are driving on a field trip, you should have your fingerprints and TB test on file with the district. Also, we are required to have chaperone and insurance information on file. Our files must be renewed every year. The chaperone/driving form has the minimum requirements listed. We also need your Declarations page, listing the coverages. Please be sure to list your last name as well as your students’ last name on the form. Thank you for helping us stream line this process.
