A Message From Principal Diaz
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Strathern Elementary School. I’m excited to begin the new school year! My goal this school-year is to continue supporting the hard work students, teachers, parents, and administrators have work so hard to accomplish. This school year we will continue to support our students’ learning. All Strathern staff is committed to ensuring our students are prepared to succeed.
This past year teachers worked diligently on guiding students through the California State Standards, and administered Interim Assessments and the Smarter Balanced Assessments. We will continue to use our instructional data to drive our instruction.
In addition to highly expected mastery of the California State Standards, we will focus on continuing to build our School-wide Positive Behavior Plan. Our School Wide Positive Behavior Plan will continue to focus on being safe, respectful, and responsible. We will boost routine incentives and motivation for students who are incorporating all three foci into their daily school practice. We will also continue to celebrate students’ academic success by holding quarterly Academic Student Success Assemblies. We will also celebrate Perfect Attendance and students meeting the District’s 96% Attendance through our quarterly Attendance Awards Assemblies.
As a school community, we are committed to excellence and encourage active participation in our students’ work. Please partner with us and ensure that your child…
I am confident that the 2016- 2017 school year will be a great year! I look forward to working closely with all Strathern families.

Strathern Appropriate Attire
Now that the days are hotter we want to remind you that students should arrive to school wearing appropriate attire.
First Day of School: August 16, 2016:
Letters were sent home the last week of June 2016 informing you of your child’s 2016-2017 school year room number. However, prior to the beginning of the school year we will have rosters posted outside the main office with the student’s assigned room number. Rosters will be posted all day Friday, August 12, Monday, August 15 and Tuesday morning, August 16. The following applies to the first day of school only:
Strathern Closed Campus Policy:
Your child's safety is the top priority at our school. Therefore, Strathern Elementary has a strict “Closed Campus Policy”. There will be no visitors/parents allowed on campus before, during or afterschool without signing in the office and receiving an identification badge.
The following policies will continue to be enforced:
Morning Drop Off
Grades 1 – 5 Dismissal
Students will not be allowed to leave campus the last 10 minutes of instruction at the end of the school day. At 2:19 p.m. (or 1:19 p.m. on Tuesdays), 1st grade students will be dismissed from the Saint Clair gate (by the pavilion), 2nd grade from the main gate on Saint Clair, 3rd, 4th & 5th grade from the Shadyglade gate. Older siblings may walk to meet younger siblings and exit younger siblings’ gate.
Teachers will remain with their students while they are being picked up. Students will not be dismissed to play at this time. YS and LA’s Best will meet their students on the lunch covered eating area and take them to their assigned classrooms. Any 2nd – 5th grade students remaining at 2:30 p.m. (or 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays) will be released to the YS program to wait for their parents.
After School Programs
After 2:30 PM, the only gate parents can use to pick up their students from the after school programs is the 1st grade gate.
Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in keeping your child(ren) safe.
Strathern Positive Behavior
This school year we will continue to remind and encourage students to be safe, respectful and responsible. We will have Positive Behavior Assemblies with all students the first week of school.
