Attendance Line

Please don't forget to call the office attendance line to let us know that your child is absent.


Gentle Reminder


Please label or write your child's first and last name in all jackets, sweaters and sweatshirts.  Remember, many jackets do look alike!





This month we have the fortunate opportunity for all of our K-5 students tovisit the 49er museum.  Both the admission cost and the bus transportation will be paid for by the 49er Foundation.  It is important that everyone have a signed permission slip in order to be able to attend.Students will need a bag lunch for the field trip.  We will be sending home a slip to fill out if you want our cafeteria to make the lunch for your child.  If you send one, the lunch must be in a bag with no containers.  Your child’sname and teacher should be written on the bag.  Only water or boxed juices can be provided for a beverage.  Also, students will not be allowed tobring back packs to the field trip.  It is important that we follow all their rules.




Thee weather is getting colder, especially in the morning.  Children should come to school with a sweater, sweatshirt, or jacket.  But, make sure to putyour child’s name on it.  Often, it gets warmer during the day and the children take them off.  As they play, they often forget to put them back on and they end up in the LOST and FOUND.  Please remind your children to check for missing articles of clothing.  We cannot be responsible for returning clothes to students.  All clothes left at school and not claimed, will be donated during the December break.  




Again, I must remind everyone to pull all the way up to drop off or pick up students.  We do not want to put any of our students in danger.  Also, students should only get in and out of the passenger side as they are picked up or dropped off.  Do not stop in the middle of the parking lot.  And please, do not park in the parking lot and pick up students.  It is dangerous for them to walk in the parking lot.




Thank you for all your support in building the vibrant Montague Community.  Our students are feeling the excitement and the commitment our families are making.  We had an amazing turn-out to Movie-Night, a huge turn-out to share the Halloween Parade, and a good number of families at our Family Literacy Night and the Principal’s Coffee.  It is important that your children know you care about Montague School and that you want to help make a difference in building a school experience that your children will enjoy and remember. TOGETHER WE CAN ACCOMPLISH SO MUCH!

Safety First

Hello Montague Families,

I hope your first few weeks of school have gone well.  With more kids walking at the beginning of the school year, we are sharing this brief safety brochure with you.  It contains good reminders for all of us to be aware and safe as we go through our week.  Thank you.

Transitional Kindergarten

The California Legislature passed the “Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010” (Senate Bill 1381), which amended the California Education Code to change the birthdate defining admission to Kindergarten. Children who are five years old before the following dates will be admitted to Kindergarten:

  • For the 2012–13 school year, the date is November 1
  • For the 2013–14 school year, the date is October 1
  • For the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter, the date is September 1.

To accommodate children who are not yet eligible for Kindergarten admission by these dates, but turn five before December 2, the District is hoping to implement a Transitional Kindergarten program. A Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.

A child will be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten if he or she will have a fifth birthday between:

  • For the 2012–13 school year, November 2 and December 2
  • For the 2013–14 school year, October 2 and December 2
  • For the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter September 2 and December 2.

Please see the flyer linked below for more information regarding Transitional Kindergarten, including an important note about the uncertainty of funding for this program.
