Morning salutes and the Awesome Eagle announcement

Dear Parents,
Starting this Monday, February 10th, we will begin to recite the flag salute and character counts pledge every morning at 8:15 am. At this time we will also recognize our Awesome Eagle of the day. An Awesome Eagle is a student who displays great character and chooses to do their best on a daily basis. We would like to start to recognize our students who demonstrate great character more often. So, parents please try your best to get your students here by 8:15am.
Thank you,
Mr. Sermeno

New Attendance Notification System for El Rancho USD

Parents in El Rancho Unified know that any time their child is absent from school, they receive a recorded phone message notification from the school. Parents can then work with the school staff if they have any questions or reply to the school to notify them of the reason for the absence if they had not done that already. As of September 2013, El Rancho USD has implemented a new and updated system for contacting parents through the mail. This notifies parents of excessive or unexcused absences, informs parents about specific attendance issues and hopefully assists parents to avoid student truancies. The key purpose of this program and system is to work with our parents and students on the importance of regular attendance which gives schools the best opportunity to provide a quality education for all children.
