"Love, Learn, Lead Together"
Welcome to the new school year. All of us at Gomes School want to make this a successful year for your child. Your active support and cooperation last night at Back To School Night combined with our best professional efforts will insure academic success for your child.
As you know, we are a large school which creates quite a bit of traffic in the morning. The safety of our children is our first concern.
A reminder to All Parents:
To keep students safe and traffic flowing, the valet system will be in effect before and after school. Please follow these procedures:
1. Follow the instructions of the Safety Patrol (adult or student) in charge of the flow of traffic.
2. Never leave your car in the valet line to look for students.
3. Drivers MAY NOT USE CELL PHONES while dropping off students.
4. Drivers must stay in line, do not pass the car in front of you.
5. Drive with caution! Don’t drive while watching your child walk onto the campus/playground. Look for pedestrians and vehicles.
6. Children must exit at the curb from the passenger side doors, not driver side.
7. Please DO NOT make a U-turn in front of the school or in the crosswalk. Not only is this illegal in the school zone, but it is very dangerous for drivers and students.
We look forward to a wonderful school year, working in partnership with parents to achieve the best for our children.

Effective July 1, 2013, the Office of Pupil Services will be officially known as the Office of Student Support Services (SSS). The SSS will include the Language Assessment Center (LAC) and School Nurses, as well as the new Centralized Enrollment Center (CEC). Due to these changes, the enrollment process for new Transitional Kindergarten (TK) – 6th grade students will be conducted in the new Centralized Enrollment Center effective July 8, 2013. Therefore, elementary school enrollment will end on Friday, June 14, 2013 and elementary schools will no longer enroll new students for the 2013/14 school. For further information, please call (510) 657-2350 after June 17, 2013 and ask for the Centralized Enrollment Center.
These changes address the requirement for the child passenger restraint system in motor vehicles in California. This change now requires that “….a driver shall not transport on a highway in a motor vehicle, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (3) of section 27315, a child or ward who is under eight years of age, meeting applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.without properly securing that child in a rear seat in an appropriate child passenger restraint system
