School Schedule Time Change!

Please note that there are several changes to our school schedule this school year (2016/2017) with new start and end times, as well as the continuation of Early Out Wednesdays.  On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, school will begin at 8:15 AM and end at 2:57 PM.  On Early Out Wednesdays, school will begin at 8:15 AM and end at 12:57 PM.

Dress Code

Please remember that students should dress appropriately for school.  The school dress code can be found in the Orchard School Parent/Student Handbook.  Some important reminders include:

  • Shorts/skirts must be fingertip length (or longer).
  • Pants should not have holes.
  • Undergarments must be completely covered.
  • All clothing should contain school appropriate language (printed messages).
  • Shoes without a back or back strap are not allowed.

All family members should consider similar guidelines when they visit Orchard School.  Thank you for your support and understanding.

Parking Lot Safety

Parking lot safety is a major concern.  At the end of the day, there are almost 600 students departing from school.  The majority exit through the front gate near the cafeteria to walk home or wait for a ride.  Please make sure you drive slowly and cautiously through the pick up area and on Q Street, as you drive to and from school.  Also, all students must be accompanied by an adult to vehicles, whether parked or not.  Do not ask your child to walk into the parking lot, or across the street.  Slow down and follow procedures.  Thank you!

School Attendance

It is imperative that students are at school on time every day.  Parents will receive truancy letters when students consistently have problems with attendance.  This can lead to serious consequences.  School begins at 8:15 AM every day, and students should be on campus at least 5 minutes prior to this time.  However, they may not be on campus until 8:00 AM.  Supervision begins on the playground at 8:00 AM.

Mission Statement

Orchard School's mission is to provide a positive learning environment with high expectations, in which our school community can learn and grow together. A high degree of family involvement is encouraged, and plays a critical role in carrying out our mission. Orchard is a recognized California Distinguished School.

School Leadership

Leadership at Orchard Elementary School is a responsibility shared between district administration, the principal, instructional staff, students, and parents.  The district’s emphasis is on a well-balanced and rigorous core curriculum at all grade levels. Instructional programs are aligned with state and district standards. Leadership duties are run under Principal Paula Roach. Staff members and parents participate on various committees that make decisions regarding the priorities and direction of the school plan to ensure instructional programs are consistent with students’ needs, and the school plan complies with district goals.

Three yellow buses rolled through Twin Rivers just before the winter break, loaded with boxes of food and wrapped gifts for 20 families in need. Also on board were Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with other volunteers from the Twin Rivers central office.

“Thank you TRUSD for the love ... we are so grateful and humbled by the gifts,” responded student Nani Poloai. “Maybe there really is a Santa Claus after all.”

The volunteers started their day at the Sacramento Food Bank where they picked up donations of fresh fruits and vegetables. Before deliveries began, the buses stopped by the district office to collect gifts for all members of the families that were on the routes.

The gifts were donated and wrapped by central office volunteers.
