Parking Lot and Lane Information 

 

We will still have three open lanes through the parking lot again this year.  The three lanes will be the bus lane, the lower drop off lane and upper drop off lane. As we will only have one bus for a smaller number of students, we will be opening up the bus lane for parent pickup and drop off. This bus lane will be closed until the bus has entered the lane. Once the bus has entered the lane and pulled forward, parents are welcome to enter the bus lane to pick up students. There will be a crossing guard in the bus lane, and students will line up next to the fence. As parents exit the parking lot, the right lane will exit to the right and the left lane will exit to the left.  We also ask for all parents and students to use the crosswalk at the stop light and not cross the street directly in front of the school.  For vehicles that are using South Melrose Dr and Melrose Way,  please be courteous to our students that are crossing the street at the light and to other drivers on the road so as not to block the intersection.  

 

 

Parent Portal Accounts are required this year

 

We are so excited for all of our students to return for the 2016 17 school year this next week on Wednesday, August 17th at 8:00 AM. Teacher information for your student will be available starting this weekend on the Parent Portal Account. All students are required to have a Parent Portal Account this year. If you do not have a parent portal account yet, you will need to visit the office on Monday or Tuesday to get your parent portal information and teacher information for your student during the hours of 8:00 – 11:00 and 1:00 – 3:00 PM.  Again, we are so excited for all of our students to return for the 2016 17 school year this next week on Wednesday, August 17th at 8:00 AM. 

 

All families will need to utilize a parent portal account this year. Start of the year packets are now accessible online through a parent portal account. Once you have created a parent portal account, you must complete the "Data Confirmation" section under the student information page. This will allow you to print out a student emergency card instead of completing it by hand. All students must have the "Data Confirmation" section completed.  Students can also find out their teacher's name by Friday, August 12th if they have a parent portal account. Parent portal information for creating an account at home can be accessed by clicking here

About Breeze Hill

Breeze Hill Elementary School opened in 1992 in southern Vista with a vision of setting the highest possible academic and personal expectations for students. The goal of educators there is for each student to experience a sense of pride through positive accomplishments, mastery of grade-level standards, and development of valuable relationships as we prepare them for a successful future in the 21st century. The school was awarded the California Distinguished School Award in 2000 and 2004.

The school staff works collaboratively with families to ensure a strong community connection. Parents participate in a variety of ways, including through the PTA, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee and by volunteering in the classroom. Throughout the year the PTA raises money and hosts events which help strengthen the programs and community at the school. Some of these events include the annual fall carnival, family movie nights, book fair and literacy night, school talent show and Jog-a-Thon.

The Breeze Hill school community takes pride in the numerous opportunities provided for students.  The Breeze Hill Garden Learning Center has been recognized by the National Wildlife Foundation as a “Schoolyard Habitat” and by MonarchWatch.org as a Monarch Butterfly Waystation.  Our garden is a valuable and scenic venue for teaching students about the wonders of our natural environment, as well as the life cycles of native flora and fauna.

Breeze Hill serves a diverse population of 780 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  There are 33 classroom teachers, and a number of certificated staff who work collaboratively to educate all students. Staff members are role models of courtesy, respect, hard work, and personal achievement.

Smarter Balanced Assessment: English and Math

In schools across the country, teachers are implementing new academic standards that provide consistent guidelines in English and math at each grade level and help prepare students to graduate high school ready for college and the workplace. These new benchmarks challenge students to develop a deeper understanding of subject matter, learn how to think critically, and apply what they are learning to the real world.

To help parents, teachers, and school leaders know whether students are on the path to success, states joined together to develop improved tests of student achievement. The Smarter Balanced assessments will replace existing tests in English and math for grades 3-8 and high school in the 2014-15 school year. Administered online, these new assessments will adapt to each student’s ability, giving teachers and parents better information to help students succeed.

Please follow the links below to find out more about the assessments students in grades 3-5 will be taking soon.
