School Site Council (SSC)

Attention parents! We have a few positions open on our School Site Council this year! This committee is a group made up of teachers, parents, and classified employees who work with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The meetings take place one time per month. If you are interested in joining this committee, please email Lisa Padway for more information. Our first meeting will be held at Alisal on 9/26 at 3pm.

Making it safer and easier to walk or bike to Alisal

The school drop / pick-up is overall a big part of our daily lives - so anything we could do to make this whole process safer and easier would help everyone. Safety while walking / biking is especially important as we’re all trying to get in on time within a short window, creating stress -- and children walking or biking are the most vulnerable in those situations. And if safety improves perhaps it will entice more parents to switch to walking or biking, which benefits all of us. To this end, we’re organizing a town hall for parents to share their areas of concern and suggestions for improvement — all are welcome to attend and we’re especially interested in hearing from those who currently walk or bike to school. While many of the factors that influence this experience is outside of the school’s immediate control and will require working with the town council, perhaps there are some easy wins that could help all of us. This is a short session — so please come prepared to share your thoughts, ideas and questions. Date: October 14, 2019 Time: 3.15 to 3.45 pm Location: Alisal MP
