BLUE NOTES:  Blue notes must be called in by 11:00am to be sure they get to your child’s teacher at lunch time.  Parents picking students picked up early without a blue note wil

MINIMUM DAYS: Our first minimum day will be on Wednesday, September 18th.  Please make a note of our new dismissal times for minimum days:

  • McCabe will dismiss at 12:55pm
  • Corfman will dismiss at 12:10pm

DRESS CODE:  Take a few minutes to look over the dress code policy to avoid dress code violations.  Our most common violation at this time of year tends to be the length of shorts.    

           Wearing of Shorts - Students will be allowed to wear Bermuda shorts, walking shorts, or shorts of this type within the following guidelines:

  1. Shorts must be mid-thigh or longer
  2. If the shorts have slits or notches, tops of the slits or notches cannot be above mid-length

iii. Shorts must be hemmed and straight legged.

Leggings and yoga pants are considered an undergarment and must be covered by another garment (longer shirt, skirt, shorts, or dress) that must be no shorter than mid-thigh.

WATER BOTTLES: With the high temperatures at this time of year, students are encouraged to bring water bottles from home to refill throughout the day.  The McCabe campus has water stations with refrigerated drinking fountains and bottle-fillers.  Water bottles must be translucent (see-through) and no glass is permitted.

McCABE PARENTS (TK-3rd Grade):

  • The McCabe Office now has its own direct line for quick access to the office staff:
    • (760) 335-5210
  • McCabe students will be held at the front gate until the first morning bell rings at 7:45am at which time playground and hallway supervision begins.  This is the protocol case for the Corfman campus.
  • TIP: To help expedite the car line at dismissal time, have a large sheet a paper with your child’s name, grade, and teacher in the front windshield.  Be a trendsetter!
