A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Hello TLC families! We are very near the end of the school year. We know it is a long year, but the benefits of having students in school for the additional days contribute to the success of our schools! 

As you may recall, next year, our high school will end its day at 3:55 PM as opposed to 4:30. Because of this, I have also decided to adjust Discovery’s release time by just a few minutes to hopefully cut down on carline congestion. 

For the 2023-24 school year, DCS will be dismissed at 3:40 PM. This adjustment does not take away from any instructional minutes.

I hope these small changes help with traffic flow and lead to a safe dismissal process for all of our students! I ask in advance to please be patient with carline during the first weeks of school as we adjust to the change!

Thank you!

Mrs. Woods

This year seems to be just flying by. As we begin to prepare for next year, we would like to remind our current 6th-grade parents that all incoming seventh-graders must be up to date with his/her required immunizations.

As required by California law, (Health and Safety Code 120325 – 120375), parents need to provide proof of receiving the Tdap vaccine (Pertussis – Whooping Cough Booster). 

All students entering 7th – 12th grades must have proof of a Tdap booster shot. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday. This means ALL current 6th graders must get up to date. 

It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child get their vaccination and to avoid appointment delays.

Receiving the immunizations and ensuring they are up to date now, will not only protect them against Pertussis, but also ensure class placement and prevent exclusion from school in the coming year.  No students will be allowed to attend school next year without up to date immunizations.

Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up to date immunizations to Kay Fagundes in the school office before May 19, 2023.

For questions, please call your primary physician today or call the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Program, at (209) 468-3481.

Again, no students will be allowed to attend school next year, without up-to-date immunizations. We are requesting TDaP proof to be brought to the office by May 19, 2023.

Special Education 

National PTSD Awareness Month is observed in June and it ushers in an array of awareness campaigns run for the benefit of PTSD survivors. PTSD, which stands for post-traumatic stress disorder, occurs in people after they have experienced a particularly traumatic event like war, violent physical/sexual/verbal assault, accidents, and so forth. Symptoms include depression, anxiety, nightmares, paranoia, insomnia, disturbing thoughts, and much more. Many people recover from PTSD after a few days, weeks, or months. Yet, for others, the recovery road might mean one year or more. This mental disorder is highly treatable, but due to the lack of knowledge about it as well as the stigma attached to seeking mental help, many choose to ignore the problem and suffer through it.
