Hello Parkmont Community,

It is really hard to believe that we are now in the last half of the school year.  Our Parkmont students consistently study hard and earn excellent grades while also participating in many worthwhile extra-curricular activities.  In particular, it has been fun to watch our girls and boys basketball teams play and compete against our other attendance area schools.  Thanks to our PTA and other organizations like Ohlone College, we also have many on-site after school programs.   We also have other family-oriented events like Family Math, Science, and Reading nights as well.  It is great to be part of such a thriving, inviting school community. Thanks for your support of your children's education and of our school. 

We would like to welcome Cathy Ytuarte as Parkmont's newest team member.  You will see her in our front office between 10 AM and 1 PM every day.  Please stop by and give her a warm welcome when you get a chance. 

I would like to invite any parent/guardian that is interested to a Principal's Chat which will take place outside our MUR on Friday, February 27th at 8:25 AM.  It is my hope that you will take advantage of this as a forum to communicate your ideas, concerns, and to offer suggestions for how we can make our community even better.  If you are unable to attend, please know that you are always welcome to stop by anytime to meet with me or our Assistant Principal, Johanna Cho. Your support and involvement with our learning community and your child's education is valued and appreciated.
 
I am constantly amazed at the accomplishments of our students. I credit the encouragement and support given by their parents and teachers.  I know I speak for all of the staff when I say we are proud to be on the Parkmont team, working every day with your children.

 Principal, Kade Petersen

 


PARKING LOT "ETIQUETTE"

 

** If you drive your child to school, there are some facts you need to know:
1. REMAIN CALM!  

2. Please be aware of those around you.  We are ALWAYS concerned about student safety and driving; dropping your student in the wrong place could result in injury. 

3. Please remember that our students are not always careful. Therefore, your attention is of critical importance. 

4. If you choose to park across the street, please do NOT have your child cross the street, take a few extra minutes to walk to the cross walk. 
 
5. We know the line to get into our parking lots can be long, but is important NOT to cross onto the oncoming traffic side of the street. 

6. When pulling into the parking lot loops, please pull as far as you can BEFORE stopping to drop or pick up your child. 

7. Please do not park in any No Parking Zones, staff parking lots, numbered parking spots (teachers’ spots), or leave your car unattended in the parking loops. 

8.  The left lane is NOT for stopping.  This is intended for driving ONLY.

9. If you park in a visitor spot, please do NOT send or call for your child across the parking lot.  Parents/students must use the sidewalk to and from your car. 

10. Please be respectful of our neighbors and do not block their driveways.

11. If you notice any dangerous driving on Parkside Drive, please do not hesitate to call the Fremont Police Department (510) 790-6800 or file an online traffic complaint:  http://www.fremontpolice.org/forms.aspx?FID=62

Measles

Hello Parkmont Families
With the Alameda County Public Health Department’s (ACPHD) recent report of five confirmed cases of measles within the county so far in 2015, the Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) is providing families with information regarding the illness.
 
FUSD reminds families there are currently no known cases of measles within the District. The ACPHD is investigating and will notify the District immediately with any reports of confirmed cases or suspected exposures.
 
Measles, also called rubeola, is a highly-contagious illness caused by a virus that causes fever, cough, runny nose and watery eyes, as well as a rash. More serious cases of measles can cause diarrhea, middle ear infection, pneumonia, or encephalitis (brain infection). Measles is spread person-to-person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or shares food/drink. If your child demonstrates any of the above symptoms, please do not send child to school and contact your physician immediately.
 
Immunization is the best protection against measles. There are typically two doses given: one at 12-15 months, and a second time as soon as 28 days later. Many children receive their second dose before kindergarten. FUSD, as well as all California public schools, requires both doses be administered prior to enrollment.
 
Please contact FUSD Student Support Services at 510-659-2534 with questions or for more information.
