    North Terrace Tiger Code: Be Safe;  Be Responsible;  Be Respectful;  Try Your Best;   Never Give Up!

    Name our Tiger Mascot and Help Make a Positive Impact

    November 30th is the last day to help us name our North Terrace Tiger mascot and help raise funds for HJ Macdonald Middle School in North Carolina. The school sustained heavy damage after the hurricanes earlier this year.  Tiger name choices are: TiCo (for TigerCode); Terrance; and Stripes.  Money is being collected in the office.  Just look for the large water jugs!  Thank you for helping us make a positive impact in the lives of others!  It's what we do!

    Safety First, Convenience Second

    THANK YOU FOR THINKING SAFETY FIRST, CONVENIENCE LAST

    Traffic and Parking Safety

    Please understand that these procedures have been carefully considered and developed with students’ safety as the guiding principle.

                *Use the parking lot for parking only.  This is not a drop-off area and is not marked as such.  Parking lots are not safe for unaccompanied children.

                *To drop off your student, please pull up to the curb.  This area is clearly marked as a drop-off/pick-up lane.  Please follow the white curb as far forward as possible so that we can optimize the available space and allow room for as many vehicles as possible. IT IS CRITICAL THAT DRIVERS DO NOT PARK  IN THIS LOOP AS IT DISRUPTS THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND POSES A SAFETY CONCERN.

    *Please walk with in the crosswalk whenever walking in the parking lot.  Shortcuts may save a few seconds but are an unnecessary safety risk for our children. 

              *Please do not stop any part of your vehicle in the marked crosswalk area.

                *Unaccompanied children may NOT be left in an unattended vehicle.  This is not legal and must be reported.

    To avoid these concerns completely, WALKING TO SCHOOL is highly encouraged.  There are many benefits to walking, such as exercise, fresh air and time to chat with your child(ren). J

    Bike and Skateboard Riders

    • Students in grades 3-8 can ride bicycles to school. Students in grades 6-8 are allowed to ride skateboards.CA law requires all students to wear helmets.  Riders must ride safely on their way to school and on the way home.

    • Bikes and skateboards must be walked on the sidewalk on campus; no riding on school grounds. Bicycles brought to school must be locked and placed in the bike racks.

    • Younger students may ride bicycles or scooters IF THEY ARE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT/CARE-GIVER. Again, thank you for not riding them on campus.

    • Failure to comply with rules will result in a forfeiture of privileges.

    THANK YOU parents for keeping an eye out for our students during the busy arrival and dismissal times.  

    Dismissal

    • All children are to be picked up or go home directly after school, unless they are enrolled in an after-school program.Wednesday is Minimum Day.  Kindergarten students are dismissed at 11:50 and grades 1-5 students are dismissed at 12:25 PM.
