Stay Connected with our school and the PTA
The sections below describe various ways for families to stay connected with our school and to know what’s going on. Please take a minute and sign up for all the digital communications and stay informed.
We also print paper copies, which are available at the Monthly “Rinconcito” event and in the school office.
If you’re on Facebook, our Facebook Page is where we post information about school events, fundraise, and promote the school. Be sure to like this page.
We also have a Facebook Group where our community posts pictures, ideas, news, and anything else they’d like to share. Ask to join this group and say that you’re a Dolores Huerta parent.
The Fairmount communications portal includes a school directory, a place to manage volunteer signups, and an online store where you can join the PTA. It’s a great tool for staying connected with the community.
Join the portal now and make sure your family’s contact information is up-to-date. You also manage your own privacy settings and decide what information to share with the community.
Old School Communications
Occasionally, you will also receive information from your teacher “stuffed” into your child’s backpack. This includes things like field trip permission slips, sign-up forms, etc.
We also strive for each classroom to have at least one Room Rep (formerly Room Parent), who coordinates classroom events and volunteer opportunities, disseminates information, and serves as the liaison between teacher and parents.
There are also a few bulletin boards outside the main office, where information is posted about the PTA, SSC, ELAC, extended care, and community events.
We also strategically place “sandwich boards” around the school for special announcements.
