Anti-Asian racism, hate speech and violent attacks on Asian Americans has increased in recent months but unfortunately, many of these incidents are not being reported. As part of our Stand for the Elimination of Racial-Discrimination we encourage the use of our online reporting system, which was developed out of the racist incidents that targeted our African American and Black youth. We encourage all our students and their families, as well as, our staff and teachers to help Stop AAPI Hate by reporting any incidents of hate they may experience or witness!


David Reese School Accountability Report Card

Every year the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is updated and distributed to families. Each school’s SARC summarizes the school’s mission, goals, accomplishments, and highlights the school’s unique programs. The state law also requires that the SARC contains all of the following: demographic date, school safety and climate learning information, academic data, school completion rates, class size, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction descriptions, and fiscal and expenditure data.  The federal law requires that SARCs contain reports concerning the “adequate yearly progress” of students in achieving state academic standards; Title I Program Improvement status and the extent to which “highly qualified” teachers are teaching core academic subjects.

Our current SARC is available online on the Elk Grove Unified School District’s website at http://www.egusd.net/academics/assessments/school-accountability-report-cards/. Under each school name you will see two links, one for the summary report and one for the full-length report. If you would like a printed copy of the SARC please reach out to Ms. Nikki by phone at 916-422-2450 or by email at xkhangaa@egusd.net and schedule a time for you to pick up your copy from the front office.

Thank you and have a great day!

ALL EGUSD SCHOOLS CLOSED – March 7 to March 13

 March 7, 2020 

Dear Elk Grove Unified Families, 

The public’s health and safety is paramount to Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) and all of our community and educational partners. Friday evening, the Sacramento County Public Health Department (SCPH) confirmed that an EGUSD family was put on quarantine because of testing positive for COVID-19. After careful consideration and in light of the new information, effective immediately, the District will close its schools, cancel classes and any student-related activities from today, March 7 – March 13, 2020. 

Please know that to date, no student or staff has tested positive for COVID-19. 

At this time, we ask parents to make arrangements for their student(s) for March 7 – March 13, 2020 as all EGUSD schools will be closed, classes will be canceled and any student-related activities will also be canceled. An update on whether the school closures will be extended will be provided by the end of the day, Thursday, March 12, 2020. 

This complex decision involved close collaboration and coordination with our Board of Trustees, labor groups, the Sacramento County Office of Education and the Sacramento County Public Health Department. We will be working closely with multiple community partners to coordinate and adjust planned events as needed. We will also move up our April Traditional/Modified Traditional Spring Break to the week of March 9 – March 13, 2020 to minimize the impact to student learning and any loss of school days. Future adjustments to the school calendar may need to be made. 

We understand there are many concerns around COVID-19 and want to ensure families that we are working closely with SCPH for updates and guidance. For the latest information on COVID-19, families are encouraged to visit our EGUSD website, the SCPH webpage dedicated to COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus), and the CDC homepage. 

For questions regarding this closure, please contact our Safety and Security at (916) 686-7786.

Attendance Awareness

Attendance can help predict academic success, but too often we don’t realize how quickly absences — excused and/or unexcused — can add up and begin to lead to academic trouble.  It is important to consider that time missed from the classroom can actually surface later in a student’s academic life.  It is important to remember that the curriculum offered today differ from our years in school. In fact, the Common Core Standards are built upon the assumption of “perfect attendance” and are also dependent of past skills taught in lower grades.

Here are some helpful tips for families to help your child from Attendance Works:

  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before
  • Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has the required shots
  • Introduce your child to his/her teachers and classmates before school starts to help their transition
  • Don’t let your child stay home unless they are truly sick
  • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make them feel comfortable and excited about learning
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up.  Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent
  • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session

Please join Elk Grove Unified School District in making school attendance for all students a priority.  Elk Grove Unified School District joins school districts across this nation in embracing this commitment to our students and celebrating Attendance Awareness Month Campaign on all our campuses during the month of September.  Please discuss with your child the importance attendance has in every aspect of their life and most assuredly being present and prepared every day at school. EVERY STUDENT/EVERY DAY.
