Welcome to Our School
Perhaps it would be better to say, "Welcome to YOUR school." For this really is your school too.
Corvallis School is more than classrooms, books, and #2 pencils. We are a community of committed people- a community that includes parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends, as well as teachers, staff, and students- all working together to improve the quality of life for our children, their families, and our community. This is no small task.
More than 520 students attend our campus in grades K - 5, and within the walls of our house gathers together a diverse mix of cultures, languages, and ideologies. While we are very pleased with how well our students are progressing academically, we are also very proud of what they are learning in addition to academics: Respect. Teamwork. Tolerance. Perseverance. Personal and Social Responsibility. And much, much more. We are constantly striving to improve what we do, and we always welcome your help.
Thanks to all of you who have become an active part of our extended family. Everyone benefits, and we couldn't do it without you!
We hope you find our website useful. If you have ideas or comments, please let us know. As the saying goes, "My house is your house." And our school is your school, too.
Recently, we have had many problems at pick up and drop off times. It is never easy to live across the street from the school, but it is especially difficult when those who visit the school do not follow traffic and safety laws when parking in the area. Please be respectful of our neighbors and do not double park, park partially in the crosswalk, or park blocking our neighbors' driveways. We also ask that garbage be disposed of properly and not left on the street or in the gutters of our neighbors' homes. We recognize that there are not enough places for parents to park but please drive and park in a safe manner and respect the private property of our neighbors. The San Leandro Police Department has been contacted about traffic and pedestrian safety around our school. Please help us out and be a positive example for your children. The drop off and pick up loop has helped but we still need to be patient and drive safely. Our children count on you!
