  • A TES Update from Our Principal, Mrs. Argain

    Smiling sun with sunglassesHello TES Community,

    A huge shout out to our PTO and all the volunteers who made the Fall Festival spectacular. Many parents and friends of the community were just amazed at how awesome the event was and the kids were having crazy fun!

    Our staff continues to thank everyone for following our arrival and dismissal rules for safety.  Below are reminders for families to share with all caregivers and others who may come to campus and are not aware of the procedures. A shout-out to Mr. Juan who has been our morning crossing guard every day. He is awesome. Be sure to give him a knuckle bump if you see him! 

    Here are some updates:

    • We ask that parents/guardians/family members or friends DO NOT take pictures or record students on campus at any time. There is a privacy act that protects students and families from allowing any photographic or media attention without permission.

    • Campus visitors are asked to review the poster in the column on the right created in partnership with our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school-wide initiative. 

    • Morning supervision for TES begins at 7:45 am for playground/recess time. Supervision in the courtyard/ main office area begins at 7:30 am as a waiting option until the main gate opens for safe, supervised playtime prior to the beginning of the school day for first and second grades.   

    • Smartwatches are to be on “airplane mode” if your student is wearing one to school.  Be sure to refer to our district’s  Annual Notice to Parents if you have questions. You are welcome to also email me for any clarification.

    • Arrival and Dismissal - Friends…we have a big mess on our hands at pick-up after school. We ask that all drivers coming to drop off and pick up follow the posted signs and painted areas around the school. This is for the safety of all staff, students, and parents/ guardians. The drive-up lane down by the black rolling gate/courtyard is for pick-up with a driver in the car. Your vehicle cannot be left unattended. We welcome parking on the surrounding streets. The streets and sidewalks are designed and maintained by the County of San Luis Obispo. Please be sure to follow all parking rules established by TUSD and the County of San Luis Obispo. The long driveway next to the play structure is also not a parking area. There are specific curbs painted for placard/handicapped cars. TUSD and TES only have control in keeping our students and families safe, hence why we enforce the red and blue painted curbs and signage in the drive-thru strip. This includes designated handicapped parking places and curbs around our campus. If you have family members or caregivers coming to pick up or drop off, please share this information with them as well. As always, please do not drive into the staff parking lot from the opposite way. We have had a couple of close calls with cars and pedestrians. A HUGE thank you to all the families that have been patient with our drop-off/ pick-up routines around TES. It takes a village to keep traffic safe and respect our surrounding neighbors. 

    • Deputy Paul Munoz, our TUSD School Resource Office, will be notified if safety laws are being broken and he is happy to communicate with anyone if there are any concerns. His contact information is pmunoz@templetonusd.org.

    Visiting our Campus,  Upcoming TES Events & ASK THE NURSE...

    Campus Visitors poster

    This year our campus has taken major strides to be proactive with our students in setting behavior expectations and teaching them what they should do rather than only responding when something goes wrong.

    In that same context, we have decided to share our expectations for when guests choose to visit our campus. Please be mindful of these expectations when you come to TES. They are in place to maintain the safety and security of our school site, as well as to model appropriate behaviors for the students. Together we can show them how to be cooperative members of one community!
