    Back to School Night Info

    This year, the Huntington Beach City School District Back to School Night for elementary schools is scheduled for Thursday, September 23 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. Like last year, Back to School Night will be held virtually.  Teachers will be sending zoom links for you to access.  We will plan two sessions, just like if we were in person, so families with more than one child at our school can attend.

    The format of the evening will include both live and some prepared slides.  The presentation will be available following the BtSNight presentation, but is probably best joined live to participate with the other families in your child’s classroom.  If you are unable to attend, a link to view the information from the night’s presentation will be shared.

    Through Zoom, our teachers will connect with you to share more information about the year, the work in their rooms, and grade level standards and expectations.  The schedule for our Virtual Back to School Night is:

    • September 23
    • 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. - Presentation 1 for all classroom teachers in grades K-5
    • 6:35 PM - 7:05 p.m. - Presentation 2 for all classroom teachers in grades K-5
    • Presentation 1 and 2 are the same presentations, and parents should plan to attend only one session for each of their children.

    We look forward to connecting with you and the opportunity to share our programs and goals for learning this school year!

    Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures in Restructured Parking Area

    As you may have noted, a restructuring of our front parking lot was completed as a part of Measure Q Modernization.  I am listing updated guidance for moving through our new lot for morning arrival and afternoon dismissal.  Patience will be necessary as we adjust to the new way of moving through the lot.  Please allow extra time in your schedule, on both ends of the process, until we improve our efficiency.

    Huntington Seacliff has over 620 students in attendance.  Safety is our first concern and priority.  Please be respectful to the staff members on duty.  When dropping off and picking up your children, we ask for your cooperation on the following:

    There is now only ONE entrance and ONE exit from the Seacliff lot.

    Entering the Lot:
    •    When coming west on Garfield, turn right into the entrance after Saddleback Lane.
    •    When coming east on Garfield, make a U-turn at Saddleback Lane and enter the school at the      entrance on the right.

    Exiting the Lot:
    •    Exit the lot from the solar panel area by turning right onto Garfield.

    For Morning Drop Off -  (No drop-offs earlier than 7:50 a.m.):
    •    Pull forward to your child's assigned gate number (as per below*).
    •    Keep the exterior lane of traffic moving do not double-park.
    •    Say goodbyes before you drop off your children and have them exit immediately curbside – adults should remain in vehicle.  
    •    Students are to exit car on the passenger/sidewalk side only.  
    •    Parents may park in designated parking spaces, but children must be escorted through the parking lot.
    •    NO CHILDREN ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARKING LOT UNATTENDED.

    You are still able to park in green zones and unmarked curbs on Garfield. This area is east and west of the school and is indicated by city signage.

    For Afternoon Pick Up:
    •    When picking up students in grades K-3, please do not linger as families in grades 4 and 5 need to line up for the 2:26 p.m. dismissal.

    Other Considerations:
    •    NO CELL PHONE USE WHEN THE VEHICLE’S  ENGINE IS ON.
    •    NO CARS ARE ALLOWED IN THE BUS DROP-OFF AREA off Saddleback.
    •    Children must NOT be dropped off on Saddleback.
    •    Parking is not allowed on Livingston during arrival and dismissal times.

    As I noted above, it will take time to improve our efficiency and skill with our new lot.  The single most important part of our work (with this) is to ensure the safe passage and travel of our students.  Please keep this in mind, even on the days your are in a hurry or feeling frustrated - it is most important at these times.  I appreciate your attention to this most important task and your support in completing it safely!

    *GATES:

    • Gate #1 is for Kindergarten pick up and drop off
    • Gate #2 is for first grade pick up and drop off
    • Gates #3 are for second and third grades pick up and drop off
