Code Red and Emergency Information

October 23, 2014

Good Evening Rosedale Families,

Today, after the regular school day, at approximately 2:45PM Rosedale had a Code Red lock down due to a report by two students that they had seen a person who may have had a weapon near campus.  Most students were gone at that time, but the after school program, other students remaining on campus, and staff members were locked down in their rooms.  The Chico Police Department made multiple searches of the campus and the surrounding area.  They found nothing of concern and called off the lockdown at approximately 3:50PM.  All students and staff were safe and secure.

Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

Our Parent/Teacher conference day is scheduled for Friday, October 31st.  Please note that this is a non-school day for kids.  Some conferences have been scheduled on additional days.  Our goal as always is to have 100% participation by parents for conferences.  This year, it is especially important to attend your Parent/Teacher conference to hear from your child’s teacher regarding instructional changes brought about by the Common Core State Standards.

Autumn is officially here and with it comes cooler weather.  Please make sure to label sweaters and jackets so that kids can easily find misplaced or lost items. 

Finally, on Saturday, October 25th @ 8:00 a.m.  We will be having a painting day to repaint our  Holistic Playground.  We will also be retouching murals on various outside walls.  Show up ready  to pain! See you there!

Rosedale's Dia de los Muertos Carnival

ADA Make Up Days - Intersession

The program will run Monday & Tuesday, November 24th, 25th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If your child attends the full four and a half hour program for two days, up to two absences will be eliminated from their attendance record.  Also, Rosedale will directly recoup ADA money for their attendance.

Opportunity offered by AZAD's

An amazing opportunity for Rosedale fundraising has been offered by AZAD’s Martial Arts Family Center! For the months of October and November if you sign up your student for martial arts at Azad’s – Rosedale will be given 100% of your child’s month’s tuition ($99)! It’s easy; all you have to do is mention Rosedale when you sign up.
