Why are Free and Reduced-Price Lunch Applications Important?

There are two reasons why completing these applications for your child/ren’s school is important. One reason is the more obvious one: your child/ren may qualify for breakfast as well as lunch free of charge, or you may only have to pay a reduced amount. Meals at school can insure that all students get nutritious food each day. Research indicates that kids who eat regular, healthy meals will do better in school than those who do not. Also, we all know how hard mornings can be getting kids ready for school. Being able to take “pack a lunch” off the list in the morning can be convenient. You may be surprised to learn that the majority of students at every school in our county is eligible to receive either a free or a reduced-price lunch.

Helping Your Child Recover from Trauma

Children may be experiencing distress related to events associated with the recent fires. The most important thing you can do in times of trauma is to help your child feel safe and protected. This is the first step in the recovery process. Your presence is probably the single most important factor in helping a child recover in a healthy way from a disturbing event.

“Trauma” is what the person experiences inside, so one child may be experiencing traumatic stress while another child may not. Adults should carefully watch for behavioral changes that can provide clues into what the child is experiencing. There are lists of possible symptoms to watch for online, but here are a few:

The Importance of Early Childhood Education

Written by Fabio Robles, Ph.D. - Assistant Superintendent

Studies show that high-quality education early in a child’s life leads to success later in school and at work. Children taught at an early age are able to get along well with others, need little help with learning in school, get better grades, and are able to pay attention longer. Research also shows that young children enrolled in pre-school programs usually graduate from high school, attend college, have fewer behavioral problems, and do not become involved with crime in their teenage and young adult years.

Written by Anthony Rebelo, Ph.D - Selpa Director / Assistant Superintendent

As we move through the holiday break and into the second half of the school year, we wanted to take a moment to remind everyone how important attendance is in our children’s education. Attendance can sometimes sneak up on us, but consider this fact: A student who misses just two days of school per month would be considered chronically absent or “truant” over the course of a school year. This is important because studies indicate that beginning as early as first grade, students who are chronically absent (missing ten percent of the school year or more which equals just 19 days each year) are much more likely to become high school dropouts.
