CAASPP Testing at Wildwood Elementary School
April 21-May 29, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians,
I have been receiving questions from stakeholders regarding how the new student CAASPP testing results will be reported. As such, I have found a resource for our parents/guardians to refer to. Our State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson and the State Board of Education have developed a new way to report the achievement of your student on this year’s CAASPP online state test that was administered in the Spring. Student results will not be available for parents and guardians until Fall 2015.  However, the results format will look and read very differently as compared to the prior CST reporting system. This linked article from Ed Source will help you as the parent/guardian get an early glimpse as to how to read the new CAASPP report when you do receive it. http://edsource.org/2015/for-parents-a-new-way-to-view-test-scores/76254#.VVobwkZRK8g

Thank you,
Principal Hudec

Please click HERE to read the full letter sent home with all Grade 3-5 students.
Please click
HERE to see the testing schedule.

Please be aware of the following info regarding late drop off and early pick up during our testing weeks:
All students arriving late to school on their assigned testing session day may have to remain in the office until after the testing session for that day is complete in their classroom. Please make sure that all dental and medical appointments are scheduled outside of your child’s testing schedule in order that they be present for the CAASPP assessment. IMPORTANT: Once the testing session has begun in the school and classroom, no announcements or phone calls to the testing room will be made until the testing session is complete that day. Therefore, please make the proper advance arrangements. Please know that if you plan on picking up your child during their scheduled testing period, we will not be able to contact them in the testing room until the test is completed that day.
In conclusion, all students are expected to be on-time and in attendance each and every day, ready to do their best work and showcase their learning. Thank you for your support as we continue to work together in order to demonstrate why Wildwood Elementary School is a California Distinguished School!

Multilingual Award Recipient
Congratulations to WES ELL Tutor, Sheryl Morales, who is one of this year's recipients of the Multilingual Award. Top picture is Sheryl with WES Principal Lucia Hudec. Bottom picture is PVMS Principal Frank Tucci, award recipients Francisco Martinez & Destiny Rodriguez, YCJUSD Superintendent Cali Binks, award recipients Sheryl Morales & Tom Dreyer, WES Principal Luca Hudec and YCJUSD Elementary Curriculum Director Linda Moffatt..

Registration packets for grades TK-5 for the 2015-2016 school year are available in the school office.Only newly enrolled students need to complete a packet (returning students do not need to do anything).
Completed registration packets are being accepted now, during regular school office hours. Our office is open from 7:30 AM until 3:45 PM Monday through Friday. Along with the completed registration packet, you will need to bring:
  • complete immunization record
  • birth certificate
  • proof of residency*
    (utility bill, pay stub, or correspondence from a government agency [federal, state or county government, DMV, voting agency, etc]).
*If you and your children live with another family, please provide a letter from the homeowner stating that you and your children live with them, as well as a copy of the homeowner's proof of residency as noted above.

All students should register at their home school, regardless of whether they have applied for an inter- or intra-district transfer. You can check your home school on the YCJUSD's School Locator Tool (click

Important Immunization Information:
To enter a public school your child must have the immunizations noted  HERE.  At registration, you must present an up-to-date immunization record with proper dates and medical office/clinic information. Copies will be made and you will retain original documents. Your child will not be allowed to start school without proof of immunization compliance.
Kindergarten Age Requirement: The kindergarten age cutoff for 2015-2016 is September 1. Children must turn 5 on or before September 1 to be enrolled in kindergarten for the 2015-2016 school year.
TK Age Requirement:  If a student turns 5 on or between September 2 and December 2, they can register for TK. Intra- and Inter-district transfer polices apply to students in grades TK-5. If the child turns 5 after the December 2 cut-off, but before the start of the 3rd trimester, they can be enrolled on or after their birthday, on a space available basis only as TK is not mandatory (ECSection 48200).The CA two year waiver form would need to be signed.
TK Age Exception:  If a student turns 5 on or between July 1 and August 31, they may attend TK if the parent/guardian requests such a placement. This would only be the case for those parents/guardians who do not believe their child is ready for kindergarten, but turn 5 on or between July 1 and August 31. Parents/guardians are required to sign the Two Year Kindergarten Waiver Form which is available in the school office.  

Free/Reduced Breakfast/Lunch & Online Meal Account: Please click HERE to apply for free/reduced lunch or to set up your child's online meal account.

STARS Club (before and after school program) is available on site, but is run through the City of Yucaipa. Information may be obtained by contacting them directly at 909-790-7460 or http://yucaipa.org/recreation/programs-activities/s-t-a-r-s-after-school-program/
2015-2016 Parent/Guardian Input
The acceptance period for Parent/guardian input letters for the next school year ended Friday, May 8, 2015. Letters submitted after May 8 may still be considered. A signed agreement must be attached to the front of your input letter (available in the school office OR by clicking HERE). Please read this agreement carefully and complete the portion at the bottom of the page before attaching it to your letter. If if you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at (909) 790-8521.

Please remember that requests for a particular teacher are not possible. The focus is your child’s learning style. The best process is that if you, as the parent/guardian of your student, convey information to the Principal concerning your student’s learning style, along with academic strengths and weaknesses. This input will help in building the classroom assignment schedules in order to develop a positive learning environment for your student. For more information regarding this limitation, please read the agreement before signing it.
