School Schedule Time Change!

Please note that there are several changes to our school schedule NEXT 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.

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 8:50 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 8:30 AM.  Supervision for breakfast begins at 8:30 AM in the cafeteria.

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.

With the passage of Senate Bill 172, many students who were unable to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) can now receive their diploma.

 

As far back as 2006, when the exit exam became a requirement for graduation, students who didn’t pass the CAHSEE were not able to graduate and receive their diploma. SB 172 changes that. Any former student who completed grade twelve in the 2003-04 school year—or a subsequent school year—and met all applicable graduation requirements other than the passage of the CAHSEE may contact their high school office and fill out a request for records review.

 

Once the graduation status is verified, the records office will mail out the diploma to the individual’s current mailing address.

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, Twin Rivers School District announces a FREE Summer Nutrition Program for children 18 years of age and under.

 

“This program helps fills a void,” says Nutrition Services Director Jill Van Dyke. “We are helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children during the summer months when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.”

 

The Summer Food Service Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the California Department of Education. Twin Rivers is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
