ALLERGY FREE ZONE
We have several students at Tournament Hills Elementary that have food allergies to peanut/nut and chocolate products. As a school we have taken some precautions to limit exposure to these allergens.
A table in the eating area has been designated as an allergy free zone. Peanut butter/nut and chocolate products will not be sold in the cafeteria. Some children bring their lunch to school. If peanut butter/nuts or chocolate are brought to school your child will not be able to sit at the allergy free table. If your child has eaten peanuts/nuts or chocolate before coming to school, please be sure your child’s hands and face have been thoroughly washed before leaving for school.
We appreciate your support. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Beaumont Unified School District, along with thousands of other schools across California, are participating in a field test of a modern assessment system designed to help shape teaching and learning in the classroom. Known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress - or CAASPP -- these computer-based tests replace the STAR program. The following dates have been set aside to administer the test.
5th Grade CST - Science
If you would like to see what types of questions students will be asked or how the test will be presented, there is a practice test available at: www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.

PARKING LOT AT TOURNAMENT HILLS
New Parking Lot Procedures!
Parking Lot- As we enter another year our number one priority is to keep all of our students safe! Parking lots can be one of those places where students safety is in question with some drivers. Please note that if at any time you are not driving safe in our parking lot you will be directed to park your car off campus and walk in to pick-up/ drop-off your child. Please do not come to pick-up your child in a rush! The average parking lot pick-up time is anywhere from 10-20 minutes and can be longer due to weather or other circumstances. Our new parking lot has not been used as we had hoped this past year for several reasons, and in order to continue to provide "curbside pick-up" after-school we have incorporated our new parking lot to ease traffic off the street.
Second grade student pick-up will now be located in the new altered parking lot and you will need to pull into the right hand lane when entering the school. This lane will only merge into the new parking lot.
If you are picking up your child from an AM Kindergarten (Early Bird) classroom your will need to park your car in a parking space and walk up to the front of the school to pick-up your child.
If you are picking up a PM Kindergartner/TK or 1st grade student you will want to pull into the left lane when entering the school. This lane will take you to the front of the school where your child is located.
Students in grade 3-5 are dismissed from their classroom and exit out the school from the big gate. There will no longer be an area outside the big gate for you to pick-up your child. That lane is an "exit only" lane from the 2nd grade pick-up area. If you wish for your child to remain on campus for pick-up they will now be located in the 2nd grade pick-up area under the supervision of the teachers.
After the traffic seems to have cleared, all remaining students will be taken to the front of the school. Any students still remaining at the school 30 minutes after dismissal will be signed into the front office. You will need to park your car and walk in to sign your child out.
We will have a new STOP sign located in the parking lot. All cars must stop at this sign and proceed only when the prior car has cleared the striped "no stopping" area.
Last year we had many different agencies take a look at our current situation. Our parent forum was very helpful with great suggestions. We are going to give this new traffic pattern a try for 6 weeks and re-evaluate at the end. If it does not seem to be making a difference we will go to our next option which is pull all students to the front of the school and make the new parking lot part of an extra-long loop. As always your input is important and feel free to call or message me with any solutions you may have to our parking lot. Posters will be up in the MPR on Back to School Night with the new traffic patterns listed and your child's teacher will also have that information which will be a part of their presentation.
I look forward to seeing you this Monday!

We would like to remind everyone of some general safety tips as students are coming to and from school. We encourage students to call 911 immediately if they feel in danger as they are traveling to and from school.
Student Safety Reminders:
Student safety is a top priority in Beaumont Unified School District and we appreciate your help in creating a safe learning environment and community.

RESPECTING INSTRUCTIONAL TIME
Our students and teachers have such a limited amount of instructional time each day and out of respect for that time parents will no longer be able to go to the classrooms to talk to their child, deliver a lunch, drop off homework, etc. These types of interruptions impact the learning of all children in that classroom. If you have homework, lunch, etc. to drop off you will need to leave it with the front office staff. If you plan on volunteering please schedule a time with your child’s teacher so the teacher can have materials prepared for you so there are limited interruptions in instructional time. Thank you for your cooperation.
