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.

Tournament Hills Elementary School Calendar 2013-2014
Dear Tournament Hills Elementary School Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year at Tournament Hills Elementary School. All of us at Tournament Hills Elementary School are anticipating another exciting year. This year all elementary schools within the Beaumont Unified School District are moving from the California State Standards to the Common Core State Standards. Our focus will continue to be improving student performance in Reading Language Arts and math but our overall goal is to provide your child with a well-rounded educational experience. All of our teachers are highly skilled in delivering both Reading Language Arts and mathematics curriculum with fidelity. As stated in our mission statement: We have created a culture of high expectations for student development. We are committed to students’ present and future achievement, success and well-being through the shared responsibility of teachers, parents, staff and community.
Our PTA has a number of activities planned to ensure an enjoyable year for students and parents. We hope that you can be an active participant in our PTA and be a contributing member in making Tournament Hills a welcoming school for students, parents and staff.

PARKING LOT AT TOURNAMENT HILLS
We understand that everyone is in a hurry and your lives are chaotic but we still need to remember that the number one priority is the safety of the students. We ask that you follow a few simple rules that will ensure the safety of ALL students: It is important that the crosswalk and sidewalk are not blocked at any time. The yellow curb is for pick-up and drop off only. Do not park your car or leave your car unattended along the yellow curb. When pulling up to the front of the school pull forward to the yellow box painted on the sidewalk. Students will not be permitted to run down to your car. For the safety of all drivers please stay in the “Pull Forward Line”. Do not take car cuts. The inner circle of traffic must continue moving. Cars in the inner circle will be asked to continue looping around. Out of respect to the residents of Tournament Hills you will be asked to loop around if you are going to block Champions Drive.
We have worked hand in hand with the Beaumont Police Department and the Fire Marshall in making the traffic situation at Tournament Hills the best and safest possible situation. My request of you…please DO NOT ignore or be rude to the school staff during drop off or dismissal. Please be aware of our school staff and listen to their directions. Please be respectful of their efforts and we will do our best to get you through safely and quickly. We all appreciate your cooperation.
Schedule at Tournament Hills Elementary 2013-2014 School Year
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.
