Visitors

All visitors to the Bunker School Campus must stop by the office and sign in during the school day!  This is for your child’s safety as well as yours.  In case of an emergency situation all need to be accounted for.  The sign-in binder is in the office on the counter along with our 'Apple' visitor stickers.  If you need to get something to your child, let the office staff help you.  We will contact your child’s teacher to get the item to them.  Please do not disturb the classroom while they are in session.

Absences

If your child misses school, it is very important to either call or send a note indicating why your child was out.  Parents/Guardians will have three (3) school days to clear an absence. If proper verification is not provided within three (3) school days, the absence will be recorded as unexcused (NUSD AR 5113) and can not be changed.

7th Grade Shots

Requirements for entrance to 7th grade:

1.  The 3rd shot for Hep B

2.  Tdap Immunization – (Whooping cough shot)

3.  Proof of Immunization for both of these shots.

Rules from the junior high:

NO SHOTS – NO SCHOOL

If you have any questions,

please call the Jr. High

at 510-818-3005.

“To prevent delayed enrollment/class placement at the Jr. High, families should begin contacting their physicians prior to the end of the 2014-2015 school year for vaccine and/or verification of injection.  Bunker 6th graders can turn in the updated immunization records to Sandra in the Bunker office.”

Safety First

Students, if you ride your bike to school, please walk your bike on the sidewalk if there are many cars driving on the street. We want you to be safe as you come to school each day.

Deliveries

In the interest of preserving instructional time, we do not interrupt classes for deliveries or messages during class.  However, we realize that there are times that parents need to get a missing class assignment or lunch to their children.

 

We have a plan for lunches already; our campus monitors take the lunch to the cafeteria and deliver them to the students at lunch time.

 

For those other items (homework, backpacks, etc.) that you would appreciate being delivered to your child, we will place the item in your child’s teacher’s mailbox for them to pick up at recess or lunch.

 

Thank you for your understanding and helping us to make sure that instruction can go on uninterrupted during the day here at Bunker.

Newark Library

Newark Library Announces Change in Hours Beginning January 5, 2015

 

The Newark Library is pleased to announce new hours of service. Beginning January 5, 2015 the Library will be open Mondays rather than Fridays in order to better serve the residents of Newark.

 

Our new hours mean that we will be able to offer more programs to serve the school-age youth in our Homework Help Center, Homework Express.  Homework Express will be expanding its hours to include Monday programs in February.  Also, being open at noon on Mondays and Tuesdays will allow for more quiet study time for the public.

 

Newark Library is located at 6300 Civic Terrace Avenue in Newark. Its friendly staff may be reached by phone at 510-284-0675. The hours of operation are:

 

  • Monday:              12:00 PM – 8:00PM
  • Tuesday:             12:00 PM – 8:00PM
  • Wednesday:      10:00 AM – 6:00PM
  • Thursday:           10:00 AM – 6:00PM
  • Friday:                 Closed

Information on the Library is also available on the Library’s website at www.aclibrary.org.

 

The Alameda County Library is proud to serve over 546,000 residents.  The Library circulates over 6.7 million items annually, with more than 2.3 million visitors to our website and over 2.5 million visitors walking through our doors.

The Newark Police Department has launched a new Community Notification Service called “Nixle” to help improve communication with people who live, work, and visit our community. The system provides a quick, efficient, and secure way to get neighborhood-level information out to community members who subscribe to the system. Through www.nixle.com, the department will be able to send text message (SMS) and e-mail alerts to subscribers. Notifications might be considered in the following instances:

  • A young child or adult with Alzheimer’s disease walks away from their home. The alert can include a picture of the child or vulnerable adult with a map identifying the area at which they were last seen.
  • A public safety emergency requires people to stay in or remain away from their homes. A Nixle alert can let residents with a registered address in the affected neighborhood know what’s happening, allowing residents to take a proactive role in their own safety.
  • A serious injury or fatal crash in which traffic investigators close down the intersection for several hours during the morning commute. This situation might warrant a notification to subscribers who live or work in the area, encouraging them to select a different route to work.
  • Other uses: Large-scale public works projects, traffic safety implications around large fire scenes, community events such as parades, fireworks, picnics, etc., details about a case of H1N1 (“swine flu”) in the area, city council meeting information, utility outage advisories/boil orders.

The information can be viewed at www.nixle.com but for notifications individuals must register. To register, visit http://local.nixle.com/newark-police-department-ca.
