Browns Valley Friendly Calendar
Parking Lot Rules
The following documents were developed and instituted by the Vacaville Police Department.
They control the rules and directions we follow to keep our students safe during drop off and pick up times.
Please open them and read them and thank you for helping keep everyone at Browns Valley safe.
Attendance is very important.
Students arriving late or leaving early require a doctor/dentist note for that part day absence to be medically excused. A note can be submitted late for the code to be changed.
A medically excused tardy and Independent Study will not be counted towards truancy letters,
but will affect perfect attendance awards.

This is a “drop off” program although parents are welcome to stay and watch. There will be a check in/check out station where parents will be required to check their children in before leaving. The volunteer staff will check the children out and walk them up to the school campus. To register your child for this program, please fill out the bottom portion of this form and return it to the office. Pick up your waiver packet and bring it to the first day.
DRESS CODE/STUDENT APPEARANCE
Students are expected to arrive at school dressed in appropriate attire that is safe, respectful and does not detract from student learning. Parents will be called if their child arrives at school dressed inappropriately. Please help us observe the following:
From our School Nurse
Please remember all medicines, including any over the counter meds, must not come to school without the appropriate district forms signed by the Dr. and the parent. Forms can be picked up in the front office.
There are lots of bugs going around right now. Policy is that students should not come to school until 24 hours after vomiting and after their fever breaks. This helps to keep control of spreading the disease, as well as allowing time for your student to completely recover.
On another note, please don’t park in the nurses parking spot, even if you think I am not here. That close up spot is not for convenience, it is for medical emergencies. There are lots of students that are at risk and need attention every day at Browns Valley as well as at other schools. There are only 4 full time nurses and 3 part time nurses to cover the entire district. Nurses need to get in and out quickly to attend to these things. Thank you in advance for your support in all of these matters.
Here is the Board Policy concerning casts, crutches etc. There is nothing about keeping the kids out of the playground. We do encourage that they stay inside the office, but we won't demand it.
AR 5142 (e)
In addition, students returning to school after surgery, hospitalization, receiving a cast,
stitches, or orthopedic appliances require a doctor’s note which states the following:
1. The date the student is cleared to return to school.
2. Any restrictions to school participation
3. Date of follow-up appointment.
