Tdap Immunization for 6th graders read here:

TEXTBOOKS - Textbooks are not to be left unattended on campus at any time for student safety and textbook protection.

Students are responsible for losses and/or damages to all materials borrowed.  Students are to make sure they have all the items received at registration. Students are responsible for any damaged conditions including mold, broken spines, detached covers and must replace the items at their (students/parents) expense.  DO NOT IGNORE accidental damages to any materials – bring them to the library right away for help.  Excuses in June 2015 for damages or losses are unacceptable and expect to receive a bill.

Replacement Costs:
Math All in One = $60; Algebra = $92; Social Studies = $75; Science = $85; Language Arts Textbook= $65; Grammar Handbook = $55; Spanish Textbook = $55; En Espanol CD = $30; Harcover Required Reading Books = $15; Science/Social Studies CD = $35; Replacement workbooks = $15 (this excludes math).  Contact the Librarian Mrs. Osejo with any questions at 
cosejo@etusd.og or 310-533-4562  x 8773.

Traffic Safety: — please obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions! Beginning in the 2006/2007 school year, TPD began using video cameras to tape violations occurring around our schools. These cameras will continue to be used to tape violations for the 2014/2015 school year. Parking citations will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You don't want to become a star on  camera...instead, help out by NOT picking up or dropping off in the areas depicted on the THIS FLYER.

Madrona's Entry / Exit – Areas for entry/exit;
* North Gate by the Blacktop at Opal St.
* North East Gate by the Lawn at Opal St.
* South East Gate by the lawn at El Dorado St.
* Front Gate at El Dorado St.

Phone Zone – Students are reminded that should they need to use their phone during the school day it should be in the phone zone on the blacktop side of the Technology Lab during Snack and Lunch only.

Deliveries – Students who forgot something at home, or are expecting parents to deliver school assignments or lunch should check the table at the front of the office during snack or lunch.  Deliveries will not be made to classrooms.

Lost and Found – If you lost an item of clothing, textbook or personal item, please check the coat rack and the table near the front of the office to see if it has been turned in. Due to the exorbitant amount of lost items and limited space, ITEMS NOT CLAIMED at the end of each month will be donated to charity.
