Principal’s Message

It is cold outside!  Now is a good time to review the Uniform Policy to ensure your children have jackets and sweatshirts that meet the policy.  The Uniform Policy is on the pink sheet included with the newsletter again today, is available in our office, and is on our website also: https://empire.sjusd.org/student-resources/dress-code-uniform-policy/

In part, the policy states:

·  Empire Gardens sweatshirts are always permitted
·  College or University sweatshirts may also be worn
·  Red and blue sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets are prohibited in alignment with district policy
·  Sweatshirts must be solid colors and free of lettering, decoration, logos, and other designs

Thank you for helping Empire Gardens maintain an appropriate school climate by ensuring that your child is in uniform each and every day.

If you are not receiving our Weekly Message via phone and email on Sunday evenings, please contact the office as soon as possible so that we can fix it.  You are missing important information and reminders! Your students are missing out on activities and events!

Do you need to update your child’s emergency contact information?  We have noticed that many phone numbers we have on file are not accurate.  Please contact the office or logon to the parent portal to update yours.  If you need to update your address or the list of emergency contacts, you need to go to the Enrollment Center (855 Lenzen Avenue, San Jose, 95126).  Remember that only people listed on the emergency form are authorized to pick up your child early from school.
