    During Jumpstart on Fox Family Friday, we recognized these Fabulous Foxes for going out of their way to demonstrate our school-wide expectations of Respect, Responsibility, Safety, and Kindness. We also recognized our Foxboro Spelling Bee Participants and Winners who will be representing Foxboro at the City Spelling Bee.

    Great Kindness Challenge Week 

    It’s our privilege to grow the minds and hearts of each of our Foxes. Welcome to the Great Kindness Challenge Week! During this challenge, our Foxes will continue to talk about the power of kindness, have the opportunity to demonstrate acts of kindness, and celebrate with a spirit day each day.  

     

    Our Foxes will have the opportunity to  participate in acts of kindness through a Great Kindness Challenge Week Bingo activity. Bingo cards will be sent home with students on Friday, February 3rd. A copy is also attached to this update. Students can return their Bingo cards to their classroom teachers. All students who return a Bingo card will earn a Kindness Fox Tag and be entered in a drawing for several fun prizes from our Foxboro PTA!  All Bingo cards are due Wednesday, February 22nd.

    Animals on Campus 

    Travis USD regulations prohibit, among other animals, dogs being walked on school campuses. This includes walking dogs on campus when dropping off students, picking up students, or during Jumpstart PE. Please do not bring any breed or size of dog onto our school campus, especially when students are present. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this policy and remaining on the city sidewalks surrounding our school campus with your dogs or any other animal.

     

    Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

    As we enter the new year and wet weather season, we would like to take the opportunity to review school safety procedures around arrival and dismissal. In order to keep all of our Foxes safe, it is important that every member of our community practice respect, responsibility, safety, and kindness during these times.

    Things to remember: 

     

    • Breakfast begins at 7:45 a.m. Students should not be on campus prior to 7:45 a.m. 
    • Student supervision begins at 8:00 a.m. Students who are not eating breakfast, should not be on campus prior to 8:00 a.m. 
    • If for some reason, your child arrives before 8:00 a.m. and is not eating breakfast, they MUST remain in the front of the school by the multipurpose room (not on the blacktop). 
    • The Foxboro parking lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The driveway is only accessible to those with a handicap placard, day care placard, and school buses.
    • The loading and unloading zone near the basketball courts are for loading and unloading students at the beginning/end of school each day. Cars should not be stopped or parked in this area. 
    • Please be mindful not to park in no parking zones, block neighborhood driveways, double or triple park along any of the streets surrounding Foxboro, or make illegal u-turns after dropping your student off.  
    • Thank you for modeling safe crosswalk use for each of our Foxes by using the crosswalks to cross streets when coming to and from the Foxboro campus, and by following crossing guard directions. 
    • Foxboro has many alternate areas for student drop off and pick up.
      • Park your car on an unmarked curb on the streets surrounding the campus and walk your children onto the school grounds using a crosswalk. 
      • Use the cement path that goes from the blacktop to the sidewalk on Youngsdale Drive.
      • Use the walkway between the blacktop area and Arlington Park behind the school.
      • Get together with your neighbors and take turns supervising the children walking to and from school.
      • Have your child cross Morning Glory using the crossing guard and meet you at a designated place on Countryside Drive.

    Thank you for prioritizing the safety of our school family each day when you drop off and pick up your children. The Vacaville Police Department prioritizes the safety of our families and will regularly be patrolling and ticketing the area before and after school.  

     

    Attendance 

    Please notify our school office if your student is missing school for any reason. You are welcome to email our attendance clerk, Mrs. Koyle at ckoyle@travisusd.org  or give us a call during our office hours, which is 7:30-4:00 p.m. daily. 

     

    Birthday/Holiday Celebrations

    Bringing Lunch for Your Student

    Parents, you are welcome to bring lunch for your student. We are asking parents to not bring lunch for other students. For the safety of our students and staff, Foxboro Elementary does not accept any deliveries, including deliveries of food (such as DoorDash), flowers, balloons, etc.

    Classroom Observation Procedures for Parents/Guardians

    Travis Unified School District welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with parents and guardians in order to meet the needs of our students. TUSD encourages interested parents and guardians to visit the schools and participate in the educational program. Procedures are established to ensure the safety of students and staff. (Board Policy 1250, Admin Regulation 6116). Please contact our front office at (707) 447-7883 with any questions. 

     

    Important information regarding observations and visits:

     

    • Requests for observations must be made at least three days in advance of preferred visit dates by submitting a Classroom Observation Request Form, which also includes these components:
      • Individual making request
      • Name and title of observer
      • Purpose of observation
      • Preferred visit days and times
      • Contact information
    • Classroom Observation Request Forms will be completed and turned in to the site’s administrator. 
    • Each Classroom Observation Request will be considered on an individual basis based on its purpose, duration, and frequency. 
    • Every effort will be made to accommodate observation requests. Our first priority is maintaining the learning environment and safety for our students and staff. To minimize classroom disruptions, observation duration may be limited based on the specific purpose as well as staff availability.
    • A member of the site/district staff will accompany visitors. This could include site or district administration. 
    • Visits will be scheduled in an effort to accommodate the classroom schedule, school personnel schedule, and the requests of the parent.
    • If there is a need for a follow-up discussion with the teacher, this must be scheduled in addition to the actual observation.

     

    When on campus:

     

    • All documentation must be completed and turned in prior to the observation scheduled.
    • Observers/visitors must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test (within 72 hours of visit). 
    • Any observers will be required to sign into the school site and complete the Classroom Observation Conditions Acknowledgement Form.

     

    COVID-19 Test Kits 

    Prior to our Winter Break, students and staff will be provided with an at-home COVID-19 test. Please follow the instructions included with the test. These tests are optional and no one is required to take a test. If you choose to administer the at-home COVID-19 test and the result is positive, the protocol is to stay at home. Please refer to our District protocol if you have any questions.  https://www.travisusd.org/site/default.aspx?PageID=6032

     

    Daily Health Checks

    We are depending on you to screen your children for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before sending them to school.  People with these symptoms may possibly have COVID-19, and must stay home.  If symptoms start while your child is at school, we will call you to pick your child up right away.

     

    Possible symptoms include:  

     

    • Fever or chills  
    • Cough  
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing  
    • Fatigue  
    • Muscle or body aches  
    • Headache  
    • New loss of taste or smell  
    • Sore throat  
    • Congestion or runny nose  
    • Nausea or vomiting  
    • Diarrhea  

       

    We are depending on our whole school community to work together to keep the virus out of our schools.  A morning health check is a critical piece of that effort. Please contact our school office if your child has been in contact with a COVID positive person (close contact situation).  If your student has any known allergies, such as seasonal allergies, or other health concerns such as asthma, please update this information in your parent portal or contact our Mrs. Staci Cope, our Health Specialist in the Front Office. 

     

    Handle With Care

    If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, we would like to provide additional support at school. We understand that you are not always able to share details and that’s okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning, or weekend, please email their teacher “Handle with Care.” Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let us know that your child may need extra time, patience, or help during the day. Please also feel free to email this message to our student support specialists or administration at the following email addresses: 

     

     

    Independent Study

    If you know that your student will be missing school for a planned vacation, please sign up for Short Term Independent Study. You can sign up for independent study if your child will be out of school between 3-15 days, but you will need to sign up at least 5 school days before the absence will begin. Please contact our Foxboro office to sign up for Independent Study or if you have any questions.

     

    Lost and Found 

    Our lost and found is overflowing! Many of the items in our lost and found are not labeled. Please be sure to label all of your student’s personal items (jackets, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, water bottles, etc.).
