Procedures for visiting campus

All Parents, Guardians and Visitors must check in at the front counter in the main office, sign in and get a visitor pass before proceeding further on campus. This includes going to attendance.  Please be prepared to show picture ID.

Early Dismissals & Campus Visits

 Parents please be prepared to show your drivers license or other valid photo I.D. when entering our main office, picking your student up early from school or when visiting our campus. When students are released from school early they must be picked up by an adult who is listed as a parent, guardian or emergency contact unless other arrangements have been made with an administrator or the office staff.

 

Students will not be called from class until parents/guardians arrive.  Students may not be signed out after 2:50 PM and 2:15 on Wednesdays due to teachers' closure procedures.

 

All visitors on campus will be required to enter through the administration office to sign in, have their identification verified and then they will receive a visitor sticker to proceed to various location in the office or on campus.

CAHSEE Communication

To All Parents, Students and Former Students:

 

We want to reach out to you to share important news about a new law that suspends the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) for the classes of 2016-2018 and allows students from the classes of 2006-2015, who met all graduation requirements, with the exception of CAHSEE, to receive their diploma.

 

More than 350 former students from across the district have been identified as eligible for a diploma.  Although the CAHSEE requirement was enacted in 2004, it first pertained to graduates from the class of 2006.   We are working to contact each eligible former student; however,  some may have moved and/or we may not have contact information.

 

Should you know of a former EGUSD student who could be eligible, please have them contact the registrar at the last high school they attended to inquire. The school’s registrar will take their name and will research that student’s record. After the registrar confirms that the student has met all local and state graduation requirements that were applicable at the time he or she completed grade twelve, the high school will then issue the student a new transcript and a high school diploma.  Diplomas will be available for issuance starting in late January 2016.

New Attendance Autodialer

Starting January 15th, 2016, Kerr Middle School will be using a new automated calling system. This new system will be calling you on your home and cell phones when your child is absent from school and the absence has not been cleared. Calls will be made at multiple times during the day to ensure that you are contacted. If you receive one of these phone calls, please contact your school during regular school hours to ensure they have correct right information regarding your child's absence.

 

As a reminder, when you child is going to be absent, please let the school know first thing in the morning so that you don’t receive any unnecessary calls
