Dear Ruth Brown Families,

Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. Hopefully you have been able to rest, rejuvenate and most importantly, spend some quality time with family and friends. I am very happy to be back for my second year as Principal of Ruth Brown. I am fortunate to work somewhere that I love and with people that I value and appreciate.

This year we are beginning the school year a little differently. All PVUSD students will be required to complete a registration packet before school starts. Packets for every Ruth Brown student will be available to be picked up at the school site beginning July 30, 2018. The packets will need to be completed and returned to the Ruth Brown cafeteria Wednesday, August 8th between 4:30pm and 7:30pm. Once your packet is completed and turned in, you will receive your child’s classroom assignment. If for some reason you are unable to make the August 8th date, you are welcome to stop by the Ruth Brown office after August 8th to turn in your packet and get classroom assignments. We suggest you do not wait until the first day of school to register your child. Students without registration packets completed the first day of school will be asked to wait in the library until the packet is completed. If students are not accompanied by a parent, parents will be called to come and complete the registration packet. Students will not be admitted to class until the registration packet is complete.

School will begin Monday, August 13th and the first week of school (August 13-17) will consist of all minimum days. School will begin at 8:20am and students will be released at 12:05pm each day. We will resume our normal schedule of 8:20am-3:10pm M, T, Th, F and Wednesday 8:20am-12:05pm beginning August 20th. Our Back to School Night event will take place Tuesday, August 21st at 6pm.

We hope you enjoy the remaining days of summer and we look forward to seeing you Wednesday, August 8th. Please call if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Cintia Robinson – Principal
