Baker School is responsible for your children during school hours. Parents or guardians must “sign out” children for any appointment during the school day.
Since Wednesday is a shortened schedule, many parents check out their children prior to lunch. If you are planning to check out your child early for lunch, plan to arrive at school by 11:30 a.m. Once you have signed out your child, the office staff will give you a Pass to present to your child’s teacher. Once you have picked up your child, we ask that you leave campus and not play on the playground. Students who are not picked up by 11:40 a.m. will participate in our school lunch program and return to their classrooms at 12:30 p.m. to pick up their belongings. In order to properly supervise children and ensure their safety, they may not be checked out once they are dismissed for lunch. If you arrive after they have been dismissed by their teachers, you will need to wait until 12:30 p.m. to take them home.
If you have any questions about this procedure, please call the school office at 874-3200. Your child’s safety is important to us!
Wednesday Pick Up
If you arrive on campus on Wednesday before 12:30 pm, you must wait for your child at the tables under solar shade structures. For safety reasons, we do not allow parents to circulate with the students in the playground areas. Once the bell rings, please report to your child’s room to pick them up.
Every Wednesday through October we will have either Jamba Juice, Kona Ice or Yogurtland on site to sell treats for $3/each. A percentage of all sales goes back to the school.
Come Work With Kids!

Last spring, students in grades 3rd - 8th participated in the first CAASPP testing cycle for California. While scores will be available to the press the second week of September, individual student reports are not expected to arrive at Districts until the middle to end of September. The District Office will mail the individual students reports to families as soon as we are able, after we receive them from the state.
Performing Arts Information
This year our 3rd grade students will be participating in two periods of physical education each week. This additional period of physical education ensures that our students are meeting California's required minutes of physical education while providing a consistent program to all students. With this shift, the students will not be attending performing arts as they have in the past, so we will be increasing our music and arts instruction within the classroom to support a well-rounded curriculum. In addition, schools will work once again with Starting Arts to bring visual and/or performing arts to the students this school year. We understand that performing arts instruction has decreased in recent years so we will be reviewing our comprehensive school program to evaluate the effect on student learning of the Visual Arts and Performing Standards.
