    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.

    We are currently looking for staff and parent representatives for the following District-wide Committees that meet via Zoom. These committees are listed below. Limited spots are available, so respond quickly to secure your place! If you are interested, please contact Miss Andrews at kandrews@travisusd.org no later than Friday, September 23rd.

    Drop-Off/Pickup

    A free breakfast will be available for all students starting at 7:45 a.m. in the courtyard outside our Multipurpose room. If your student is NOT eating breakfast, you may drop your student(s) off starting at 8:00 a.m.

     

    The Foxboro parking lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The driveway will be coned off, accessible only to those with a handicap placard and school buses. Dropping off and picking up your students in a timely manner is important and we appreciate your efforts!

     

    Thank you for prioritizing the safety of our school family each day when you drop off and pick up your children. 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.  As a reminder, the loading and unloading zone near the basketball courts are for loading and unloading students at the beginning of school each day. Cars should not be stopped or parked in this area. 

     

    Also, thank you for being good role models for each of our Foxes by using the crosswalks to cross streets when coming to and from the Foxboro campus. The Vacaville Police Department prioritizes the safety of our families and will regularly be patrolling and ticketing the area before and after school. 

     

    As a result, Foxboro has many alternate areas for student drop off and pick up. These routes help to ease the congestion at the front of the school during peak traffic times.

     

    Some suggestions include:

     

    • 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.
    • Consider organizing a “walking school bus” in your neighborhood, possibly with parents alternating supervision, as in carpooling. More information is available by contacting Solano Transportation Authority at (707) 399-3222 or http://www.solanosr2s.ca.gov/

    #SeeSay Day - Community Awareness 

    In 2018, the Department of Homeland Security designated September 25th as National “If You See Something, Say Something” Awareness Day, also known as #SeeSayDay. On this day, the DHS reminds the public to be aware of suspicious activity and know how to report it to law enforcement. More information can be found here.

     

    As we’re educating our school community on the importance of reporting threats to safety, please take this opportunity to talk to your child(ren) about our collective responsibility to keep our school safe. Children should be encouraged to report concerns immediately to a trusted adult so that steps can be taken to ensure everyone’s safety. Thank you for partnering with us!

    Students Leaving Campus During the School Day 

    Students are not permitted to leave the school grounds at any time except in cases of emergency or with the student’s parent, or person(s) identified on the emergency card by parent or guardian. Students leaving campus prior to dismissal must be signed out by an adult, 18 years or older, in the main office. Foxboro students may not leave with siblings under the age of 18. Be prepared to show identification prior to release of the student. Persons other than parents who are signing out students must be authorized to do so in writing by the parent or guardian. Persons over the age of 18 and listed on the student’s emergency card are considered authorized to sign out students from school. 

     

    Please plan to arrive a few minutes early as students will not be released from class until an adult arrives. If your child will be picked up early, it is helpful to send a note to the teacher the morning of early pick up. It is also helpful to come before or after a student’s scheduled lunch or recess, as it may take additional time to locate your student during lunch and recess times. Students returning to campus prior to dismissal must sign in at the office and will then be directed to proceed to class.

    Water Bottles & School Dress

    Please remember to send a water bottle to school with your child each day. In addition, please make sure your student’s name is written on their water bottle as students often have similar water bottles.

     

    At Foxboro, it can be cold and windy in the morning and hot in the afternoon so please dress your student in layers. Students may very well need a jacket/sweatshirt in the morning. Students need to wear tennis shoes or other similar footwear. Students will not be able to participate in PE or any outdoor activities if they do not have adequate footwear. Articles of clothing which display profanity, obscenity, vulgarity, or other questionable printing that interferes with, creates disorder or disrupts the educational process are not allowed. Also, short shorts, crop tops/bare midriffs, shirts with spaghetti straps,  are not appropriate school attire.

    Happy Sunday Foxboro Families, 

     

     

    On Fox Family Friday, during Jumpstart PE, we had the opportunity to celebrate some of our Fabulous Foxes who went above and beyond to demonstrate our core values of Respect, Responsibility, and Safety! Congratulations to our Fabulous Foxes!! 

     

    Patriotic Day at Foxboro

     

    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. 

     

    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 contact our office at (707) 447-7883 from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. daily.  

     

    Birthday/Holiday Celebrations 

    As a reminder, please do not send birthday/holiday treats or food items to school. “Goodie bags” with non-food items are allowed. Also, balloons or flowers are not allowed in classrooms. 

     

    Cell Phones on Campus 

    Just a reminder that students are expected to have their cell phones turned off and in their backpacks while on campus. If students need to call home, they can call from the office. In addition, to respect the privacy of all students, parents are also asked not to take pictures or videos while on campus. 

    • 1st violation - Verbal reminder for student to turn their phone off and put it in their backpack. 
    • 2nd violation - Cell phone is confiscated and given to the office. Student can pick up their phone at the office at the end of the school day. 
    • 3rd violation - Cell phone is confiscated and given to the office. A parent will have to come pick up the phone from the office. 

    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. 

     

    Drop-Off/Pickup

    A free breakfast will be available for all students starting at 7:45 a.m. in the courtyard outside our Multipurpose room. If your student is NOT eating breakfast, you may drop your student(s) off starting at 8:00 a.m.

     

    The Foxboro parking lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The driveway will be coned off, accessible only to those with a handicap placard and school buses. Dropping off and picking up your students in a timely manner is important and we appreciate your efforts!

     

    Thank you for prioritizing the safety of our school family each day when you drop off and pick up your children. 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.  As a reminder, the loading and unloading zone near the basketball courts are for loading and unloading students at the beginning of school each day. Cars should not be stopped or parked in this area. 

     

    Also, thank you for being good role models for each of our Foxes by using the crosswalks to cross streets when coming to and from the Foxboro campus. The Vacaville Police Department prioritizes the safety of our families and will regularly be patrolling and ticketing the area before and after school. 

     

    As a result, Foxboro has many alternate areas for student drop off and pick up. These routes help to ease the congestion at the front of the school during peak traffic times.

     

    Some suggestions include:

    • 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.
    • Consider organizing a “walking school bus” in your neighborhood, possibly with parents alternating supervision, as in carpooling. More information is available by contacting Solano Transportation Authority at (707) 399-3222 or http://www.solanosr2s.ca.gov/ .

    Patriot Day - September 9th 4

    This Friday, September 9th, we will recognize Patriot Day at Foxboro Elementary by wearing red, white, and blue. On Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, we honor those we lost on 9/11. We also honor our first responders—firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency workers, and service members—who served and continue to serve our country. Their courage embodies the American spirit and resilience, and their heroism continues to inspire new generations of Americans.
