At Bartlett we are continually committed to maintaining a safe learning environment for our students and staff. We are excited to announce that we are implementing a new visitor check-in system beginning today, 8.8.19. With this new system, visitors will need to bring a government-issued ID and sign in at the front lobby if they wish to visit classrooms or other areas beyond the front lobby. Visitor badges will be printed at the time of sign-in. Thank you so much for your understanding and patience as we implement this new system.
Parents are invited to Back to School Night at Bartlett on Tuesday, August 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. During this event, you will learn about the special programs at Bartlett and you will have an opportunity to visit your students' classrooms and meet their teachers. We hope you'll join us and take some time to get to know our school and our staff. We look forward to seeing you!
Due to the continuing spread of pertussis or whooping cough in the valley, Porterville Unified School District is continuing to require that all 7th-grade students provide proof that they have had a recent Tdap booster in order to attend classes this year.
If your student has not had a Tdap booster, please schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Please be aware that Tdap boosters are available at WalMart Walgreen's pharmacies on a walk-in basis. The vaccine may also be available at the Tulare County Immunization Department at 559-685-5725.
If your student has already had the booster please provide a copy of the shot record to our clerk in the school office. Please feel free to call us with any questions or concerns.
Please be aware that all students who do not have verification will be held in our library until proof of the Tdap vaccination is provided.
If you have not already provided proof of the Tdap vaccination to the office please make every effort to bring it in immediately. Please call our office at 782-7100 if you have any questions.
All Bartlett parents are invited to attend our first Level 1 workshop with the Parent Institute for Quality Education or PIQE on August 20th @ 6:00 pm here in our school library. This series of workshops is designed to help parents learn how to support and prepare their students for high school and college. The workshops will be offered in English and Spanish and daycare and snacks will be provided.
if you are interested in learning about how to help your students achieve academic success and understand the importance of middle school and high school, we look forward to meeting you.
Contact our School Counselor at 782-7100 for more details. Our parents will also be personally invited by PIQE staff in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you and having a successful year for your students.
Thank you and goodnight.
