Help your student succeed by consistently being on time to school.  When students are just a few minutes late they can miss out on important learning opportunities such as class huddles, morning announcements, reminders to turn in homework.  On time students are successfull.  Student attendance is one of the most common predictors of academic achievement. Students who participate fully in school activities will have more opportunities to achieve academically.  Here are some things parents can do to help their students be on time every day.

  • Establishing and keeping a schedule; children thrive on routine
  • Going to bed and waking up earlier
  • Preparing for the morning the night before by laying out outfits, packing backpacks, and pre-packing lunches
  • If work schedules conflict, investigate other means of transportation, such as carpooling with other families

The California PBIS Coalition has recognized Capri at the Silver level.

What is PBIS: 

PBIS is a school-wide behavior support of all students. PBIS calls on schools to teach kids about behavior, just as they would teach about any other subject—like reading or math. PBIS recognizes that kids can only meet behavior expectations if they know what the expectations are. A hallmark of a school using PBIS is that everyone knows what’s appropriate behavior.

Capri has been recognized for reflecting excellence in measuring and implementing the core features of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
