STEAM is our new science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics program. All of our students will be participating in science and technology classes twice a week for forty minutes in our new science lab. Students in kindergarten through third grade will participate in science-based art classes provided by the San Jose Museum of Art. Our fourth and fifth grade students will receive keyboard piano lessons once a week in our music lab. Furthermore, our teachers have designed STEAM integrated lessons over the summer.  

STEAM son las siglas en inglés de nuestro programa integrado de ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería, artes y matemáticas.

Bullying Policy

The Mt. Pleasant School District believes that all students have a right to a safe and healthy school environment. The district, schools, and community have an obligation to promote mutual respect, tolerance, and acceptance. The Mt. Pleasant School District Staff will not tolerate behavior that infringes on the safety of any student. A student shall not intimidate or harass another student through words or actions. Such behavior includes direct physical contact, such as hitting or shoving; verbal assaults, such as teasing or name-calling; and social isolation exclusion or manipulation.

We encourage parents to become active and involved with the school. These may include School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), Parent Teacher Association (PTA), ad hoc committees for special school activities/projects, classroom helpers, and library helpers. Please contact your child’s teacher or principal for more information.


If you have a concern, question or problem, we have no way of helping you with a solution unless you communicate with us. Please call us. If the teacher or principal is not immediately available, your call will be returned as soon as possible within a 48 hour period. If you would rather come in and conference with us, we suggest that you call to make an appointment because the staff may have a previously scheduled meeting or appointment.

Daily school attendance is critical for students to learn and achieve in school. Student absences affect the student's achievement, the classroom program, and the financial resources of the school which helped provide a quality instructional program. The law requires students between the ages of six and eighteen to attend school regularly.

Absences are only allowed for student illness, a death in the immediate family, or a medical appointment. All other absences are unexcused and may result in a student being declared legally truant. Any student absent more than ten percent (10%) of the school days available, will be required to present a doctor's note verifying illness or have the absence(s) count as unexcused. Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments after the school day.

Families of students identified as truant may be referred to the school principal, district Student Attendance Review Board (SARB), the Police Department, and ultimately the District Attorney's Office for prosecution for failure to comply with compulsory attendance laws. Families receiving financial aid may also have their financial benefits reduced by the county due to poor attendance by students. Students absent may be required to make up time and work in after school and Saturday school programs. Attendance may also be used as one factor in determining whether or not a student will be promoted to the next grade or retained.


Parents, guardians, and other individuals listed on the emergency card are the only people who can sign a child out of school. Please have the proper identification available when requested. For your child's safety, we will not send him/her home alone even if you send a note to school during school hours.


Parents and adult members of the community are always welcome to visit the school. We do ask that you make arrangements for preschool siblings to not come on campus. Children who are not officially registered at the school cannot visit. Please come to the school office, sign in and get a visitor's pass from the secretary before you go the classroom.

Students are not permitted to leave campus during school hours.


Emergency cards are sent home to be updated in the fall. New parents fill them out when they first enroll their child in the school. If you move, change telephone numbers, etc., please send corrections to the office immediately. Should your child become ill or injured, we must know how to contact an adult. We strongly recommend that you give us two names of adults in our locality who may be contacted if we cannot reach you. Remember, this information is vital to your child's welfare.


Students may take necessary prescribed medication at school under the supervision of the health clerk and/or school secretary and with the written consent and direction of a physician. Parents must complete the proper forms and leave the medication in the office. The medication should be in its original container and with the appropriate directions on the label. The school cannot administer aspirin or other medication that may be purchased over the counter.


Work envelopes containing representative samples of students' work will be sent home periodically. Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled at least one time during the year. Report cards are presented to parents and students at the end of each trimester. Progress reports are sent home in the middle of each trimester to notify parents of their child's interim progress. Parents are requested to sign the report and return it to school. The teachers and principal are available to meet with parents to discuss any concerns or problems.
