Parent Email for Week of January 14, 2019


Happy Friday, McCabe Families!

Safety is ALWAYS a priority for our McCabe students, parents, and staff, whether on campus or on the road.  Please take a few minutes to read through a few very important reminders as we move towards the second half of the school year. 

INCLEMENT WEATHER: During the winter in the Imperial Valley, we occasionally wake up to dense fog which may put a hold on our school buses as they start their morning routes.  When inclement weather (e.g. heavy rain, fog, mist, etc.) reduces visibility to less than 200 feet or to a point that the driver determines it is unsafe to continue, a school bus driver shall stop until visibility has improved.  On such mornings, an email will be sent out from our district office notifying families of the possibility of late morning buses.  Students transported by McCabe buses will not be marked tardy.  Parents are always welcome to drive their children to school, but please leave home a bit earlier than usual to allow for excessive traffic on those mornings. We thank you in advance for your patience as we take every precaution necessary to keep our students and drivers safe. 

BUS RULES & REGULATIONS: Please remind your child that he/she MUST stand at least 15 feet away from any school bus in any direction.  Parents - when a school bus is stopped with its red lights flashing and its stop arm extended, you must stop your vehicle at least 20 feet from the bus.  Oncoming traffic and motorists approaching the bus from behind may not move until the stop arm is retracted and the red lights are no longer flashing.   

LOST & FOUND: Please have your child check the Lost and Found for lost sweatshirts/jackets, lunch boxes, water bottles, glasses, and house keys.


6th GRADE CAMP CUYAMACA: Payments for Camp Cuyamaca ($275) are now past-due.  Please pay off any remaining balances by Monday, January 14th.  A parent meeting with Cuyamaca camp staff has been scheduled for W, 1/30 at 9:00am in the gym to discuss camp activities, what children need to bring, medications, etc.
