SDJA's Parent Portal (Edline) is a technology tool used by parents to access various kinds of information pertaining to their child’s particular classroom and assignments. Teachers post information on class field trips, major tests and long term assignments with due dates to help students and parents stay organized and enhance the partnership between school and home. Parents receive an individualized, personal code at the beginning of the school year in order to access their child’s information. Contact your respective school for assistance.
The lower school offers an ESL program for students learning English as a second language. The ESL teacher conducts a pull-out program to give students directed lessons that strengthen vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing skills. Students are pulled out in small groups for approximately 30-45 minutes, three to five days per week with students of like ability and of similar age whenever possible. Because the majority of the school day is spent within the regular classroom among native English speakers, most students require just one or two years of ESL help before being fully integrated into their classrooms.
A list of family addresses and telephone numbers can be found in SDJA's Parent Portal (Edline). Please send corrections and changes to email@example.com.

At SDJA, we aim to serve students food that tastes good as well as
food that is good for them. We believe it is important to provide our
students with nourishing options that promote the Jewish value of
Shmirat Haguf, caring for one’s body, whenever possible and we’ve made
some exciting changes to our school lunch program to reflect that
We are always striving to improve the quality and freshness of the
food that we serve. We provide foods high in nutrient values, low in
fat and prepare what we can from scratch in
our kitchen. Every lunch ordered comes with a salad bar that features
local and organic produce whereever possible and we use a combination
of whole wheat or grains in most bread products. To create a deeper
understanding and appreciation of food, students are working in our
edible garden to help provide the school with organic produce when
possible and all food is, of course, Kosher.
We understand that our food choices make a difference and at SDJA we
seek to make the healthier decision as easy as possible for your

A registered nurse is on staff to provide a warm, caring environment to students that are ill or injured. The nurse can administer various over the counter medications (i.e. Tylenol, Motrin, Tums, etc), if parental permission has been given. In addition, students’ medications or treatments as prescribed by a physician and provided by parents can be administered on site. The nurse carefully monitors communicable diseases that may affect the students at SDJA and keeps parents informed.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jan Capon, RN by phone at (858) 704-3736 or by e-mail at email@example.com.

Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures
SDJA continues to address the importance of a safe arrival and departure for the children of our school. The most difficult time to monitor their safety is during the transitional times of their arrival and departure. Please read the following guidelines that were designed to ensure student safety. Your active participation in following these guidelines not only helps to keep our students safe, but can also contribute to the efficient arrival and departure for many families.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The PTO is an organization of parent volunteers that provides goods and services to benefit all students. All parents are automatic members of the PTO, and annual dues are included in tuition. There are more than 40 committees for which parents can volunteer throughout the year. Aside from conducting several annual fundraisers, the PTO runs the student store, places volunteers in the library, organizes a bi-weekly mah jong game, and funds assemblies, treats for all holidays and much, much more. The PTO is a great way for parents to get involved in the community of the school.
