Message from the Principal:
Hello Rocklin Merryhill Families!
July is here and so are those hot summer days! Once the temperature hits that 95 degree mark, we minimize the amount of time our students spend outside. We haven’t been going outside in the afternoons. Please make sure your child has sunscreen and we’ll be sure to apply it prior to going outside to play. The sunscreen release forms are in the front office for your convenience.
Water play Wednesdays have been a big hit! It’s really fun to watch the kids splash around. We also use our water play days to help teach about sun and water safety. And how fun is it to look for sight words on pool noodles! What a great way to reinforce the concept. Parents will have the opportunity to experience water play with their kids at our annual Night Slide on August 25! Save the date. This is always a great time!
Don’t forget to check our event board in the office. We have lots of fun things planned for students and I know they won’t want to miss out!
While some of our classes are already full, we do have openings in others. We appreciate the family members and friends you refer to us and offer a tuition credit when you do! Please see Aubrey or me for more information.
We are looking forward to a new school year with our students. They seem to be adjusting well to their new classrooms and teachers. Please don’t hesitate to speak with me if you have any questions or concerns regarding student transitions (or any other issues!).

For Parents and Teachers
“Your child’s world is only as stable and safe as the life you provide. Children live in the present moment, not the past or the future and you are the guide to the little universe they see and feel now. If your child is unsure of where you are, or what your mood might be at any given moment, or if you might leave, his world will be filled with constant turmoil. If you want her to grow up with confidence, it starts with what you bring with your life.”

Nut Free: We are a NUT FREE school. We do have some students with nut allergies and appreciate your help in keeping all of our children safe and healthy.
California Licensing Regulations require that parents sign children in and out, with drop-off and pick-up times, and a complete, legible signature. We will be highlighting your sign-in/out sheets on those days when you forget to sign in or out!
Tuition Options: We appreciate that you make every effort to make your tuition payments on time. As you are aware, tuition payments are due on Monday of each week (or on your child’s first day of attendance). To save you time, the headache of having to remember your checkbook every Monday and to avoid those pesky late fees, consider enrolling in our automatic payment program at no charge. We are also accepting credit cards for payments. Please talk to Sue or Aubrey for more information.
Art Files: Please remember to check them at least once a week to pick up any correspondence between the office and/or teachers, along with your child’s amazing art work.
Clothing and Nap Items: Remember to update your child’s extra clothing as the seasons change and your child grows! Please label all of their items so we can return anything that may be forgotten at the end of the day. Any soiled items will be placed in plastic bags and put into your child’s cubby. Each child needs a blanket and crib size sheet for rest time. Sheets and blankets must be taken home on Fridays (or you child’s last day of attendance during the week), laundered and returned on the first day of attendance.
LTL Files: Links to Learning files are available on the last day of each month. These files provide you with information about the skills your child will learning in the upcoming month, as well as a snapshot of what has been accomplished in the current month through the work you will find in the folder.
Merryhill Elementary School: If you are interested in having your child stay with Merryhill School for kindergarten and beyond, please visit our elementary campus at 1115 Orlando Ave. in Roseville, just off of I-80 and Riverside Ave. The school contact information is 916-783-3010 or email@example.com.
