School Services and Resources

Day Care (Clubhouse)
Los Gatos Parks and Recreation Department operates an extended on-campus day care program, called Clubhouse, which is available to all students from 7:00 A.M. to 6:15 P.M. daily. Morning or afternoon care for kindergarten students is available, as is limited space on Minimum and Late Start days. Schoolyard supervision begins 15 minutes before the start of classes, so children arriving at school prior to 7:55 a.m. should be enrolled at Clubhouse or accompanied by a parent.

A registration packet (available in the school office) must be filled out each school year by any family wishing to enroll a student in Clubhouse. A registration fee is assessed per family, and all fees including the registration fee, are billed to your home. Refer to the registration packet for specific fee schedules. A tuition option with a discounted rate is available for families that use this program on a regular basis. Clubhouse offers enrichment activities such as crafts, art, cooking, group games, sports, movie day, special mini-courses, etc. The Clubhouse phone number is 335-2131.

A cafeteria menu is sent home monthly in the Wednesday envelope and is also available on the school web site at Hot lunches, including milk, may be purchased daily. Milk or juice may be purchased separately. Each student is issued a card which is kept in the cafeteria that operates like a debit card. Parents deposit money (a minimum of $30 deposit) onto the lunch card, and students then scan their card each day to pay for their lunch. Students are notified when their balance is getting low. Parents may apply to the school for free or reduced price lunches. Because we have several students who have severe allergies to peanuts, we are discouraging peanut butter and peanuts on campus.

Homework Club
"Homework Cubs" operated by Los Gatos Recreation on campus after school. This program is only open to students in Clubhouse and is associated with Blossom Hill. Contact Los Gatos Recreation for more information on these programs.

Study Field Trips
Study trips enrich our curriculum. Attending a study trip is voluntary. If the student plans to attend, we require a permission slip signed by a parent. Permission slips are sent home with students. Siblings of students may not attend class study trips.

A parent who agrees to drive on the study trip will be assigned a small group of children to supervise throughout the trip. We also ask that you go directly to and directly from the study trip without stops for unauthorized drinks and snacks or for personal reasons.

Any parent driving children to a study trip must, prior to the trip, complete, sign, and submit a form stating that the parent has the following insurance coverage:

Accident Minimum Coverage
Bodily injury: $100,000 - $300,000 per accident
Property Damage: $25,000 per accident
Medical: $10,000
Single limits: $300,000

Lost and Found
Please label your child's personal items, such as clothing, backpacks, and lunch boxes. The Lost and Found rack is located by the school cafeteria. Please check there when an item has been lost. Unclaimed articles are donated to charitable organizations at the end of each month.

All third through fifth grade students may ride their bicycles to school. Riders must sign a bicycle contract available on the first day of school through the child's teacher, and through the office thereafter. Students must wear a bicycle helmet according to California State Law and obey all safety rules. Bicycles MUST be walked on sidewalks in front of the school and inside the school grounds. We have a NO WHEELS rule inside the school grounds meaning no bikes, skateboards, scooters or other wheels may be ridden on campus grounds. Bicycles must be parked and locked in the bicycle racks located around campus.
