Why check in?

ALWAYS CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE BEFORE GOING TO THE CLASSROOMS -  it is a matter of safety for our students. The teachers know the students in their classrooms, but they do not know all of the families and adults connected to the students.  It is very important for your child's safety that all staff members be able to recognize adults who have properly checked in, displaying an office-issued name tag.  

All staff have been requested to redirect any non-staff adults who do not display a name tag to the office.  Let's all follow the 'School Rules' and the Newark Education Code and keep our campus safe.

Lunch Application

Newark Unified School District is pleased to announce the availability of applying for Free and Reduced Price Meals ONLINE beginning July 1, 2017 for the

2017-2018 school year!  The process is SAFE, SECURE, PRIVATE, and AVAILABLE anytime, anywhere!


Applications cannot be accepted BEFORE July 1,2017 for all students. This is when the new school year begins.


If your student is not currently enrolled in Newark Unified School District, we will not be able to process your application, so please make sure you have completed the enrollment of your student(s) before applying, as this will delay completion of the application.


No paper application required if you apply online. I encourage you to fill your application out online, which will save you time by allowing you to fill it out whenever is convenient for you, and not having to pick up a paper application. If you would prefer to apply in person, you are more than welcome to pick up a paper application at your student’s school office, or at the Child Nutrition Office located at 37370 Birch St.


Please be aware that we are not able to use the application from 2016-2017 school year, due to changes in the requested information. Families who qualified for our Free or Reduced Program in the 2016-2017 school year, will only be able to continue in the program for the first 30 days of the school year. You will need to fill out a new application for your student(s) to continue with these services for the new school year.


If you have any questions, please contact the Child Nutrition Services Department at (510) 818-4281.


Traffic Safety - seguridad vial

As we begin the school year, Newark Police Department will begin citing drivers whenever necessary to encourage compliance of traffic laws and to reinforce that safety of our children is a priority.

There have been multiple incidents endangering children even a child being struck and several near misses.  Please remember that children’s cognitive abilities are still developing and they lack training and experience in traffic safety.  

Keys to avoid receiving a citation:

  • Drive Slow
  • Do not make illegal U-turns
  • Have car seats for children
  • Have seat belts on all passengers
  • Make a “full-stop” at stop signs

Putting our children at risk is not worth the few minutes you may save by rushing and breaking these suggestions.  Newark Unified School District and the Newark Police Department want to keep everyone safe.

Safety reminders for children walking to school:

  • Walk, don’t run across the street
  • Look left, look right and left again
  • Obey Walk/Wait signals
  • Do not cross at mid-block locations
  • Use crosswalks

Safety reminders for children biking to school:

  • Always wear a properly fastened and fitted helmet
  • Obey all traffic laws
  • Ride in the same direction as motor vehicles
  • Check traffic when changing lanes, crossing streets or turning
  • Use hand signals

Birthday Treats


Please make prior arrangements with your child’s teacher before bringing in birthday treats for your child to share with his/her class. Also, we ask that balloons, flowers and other large displays be given to the child at home because they are very distracting in the classroom.


Bring the healthiest treats if possible. We know the tradition is sugary cupcakes and such, but we are trying to teach our children healthier ways of eating.
