Opening of Double Peak School Delayed Until August of 2016

k8_campus entry

A letter was sent to all DPS families on Tuesday, JULY 21 from Superintendent Holt informing of the delayed opening.

Community Letter

July 21, 2015

Dear Double Peak School Families,

As a community, we have observed, with great excitement as the walls of Double Peak have started to come together and resemble what will be an extraordinary K-8 school in San Marcos Unified School District.

There have been unforeseen circumstances in the negotiations to purchase a small parcel of the land necessary to complete the required road improvements, which forced the Governing Board to take official action to acquire the land by eminent domain. Our attempt at good faith bargaining with the property owner, in conjunction with the legal proceedings of condemning the property, has delayed the contractor’s ability to begin the road improvements, which are required by the City. It is estimated that these improvements will not be completed until the end of May 2016. I concur that these offsite road improvements are vital to ensuring the safety of our students and community and must be completed prior to the school opening. Therefore, Double Peak School will open in August of 2016. For the 2015-16 school year, students living within the Double Peak School boundaries will remain at Discovery and San Elijo Elementary and will become Double Peak School students in the 2016-17 school year.

All intra-district and inter-district transfers will remain approved and families will not have to complete transfer paperwork again for the 2016-17 school year. Families with either an intra or inter district transfer will have one of two options for the 2015-16 school year:

  1. Their student can attend Discovery Elementary, San Elijo Elementary, or San Elijo Middle School for the whole 2015-16 school year – or –
  2. They can return to their original home school and begin at Double Peak School in the 2016-17 school year

All families with an approved intra or inter district transfer must inform Laura Andrade in the Student Services Department, by Wednesday, August 5, 2015, if their student will remain at their current home school for the 2015-16 school year or transfer to either Discovery, San Elijo Elementary, or San Elijo Middle. Ms. Andrade can be contacted at 760-752-1220.

Throughout this past year, I have seen the wonderful and collaborative efforts of Double Peak School families and the administration form the core values that will guide the curriculum of this school. Principal Baum will continue to be the pillar for this community – strengthening connections by holding Double Peak School events and staying connected with students and families during the 2015-16 school year.

Regards,

Kevin D Holt, Ed.D. Superintendent

Movie Night August 7th

The San Elijo Hills Community Association is hosting a FREE showing of Annie (rated PG http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823664/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg) as part 3 of our summer movie series!

Annie will be shown on Friday, August 7th at the upper sports field (Hilltop Field) of San Elijo Park. Pre-show activities (including bounce houses, a sticky wall, jousting, and obstacle course!) will begin at 6:00PM and the movie will start at sunset (around 8:00PM). Remember to bring your low-back beach chairs and blankets for lawn seating! A flashlight may come in handy too!

A few food trucks will be there, and will have a variety of food (including yummy pizza!), & refreshments for purchase. A portion of the food truck proceeds benefit the San Elijo Hills Foundation.

Annie is a Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.

Community Reminders

Summer is the optimal time for painting your home! Now is the time to consider painting-whether it be that faded garage door, shutters, siding, or just the trim! If you are looking at changing the color, please submit the necessary plans and application for review and approval by the Architectural Committee.

Keep our yards looking their best! During the on-going drought and reduced watering times, owners must continue to maintain their yard areas by mowing, weeding, trimming, and pruning.

Did you know that there are many great alternatives to grass? Why not consider gardening with native plants. You can bring the beauty of California into your own landscaping while also receiving numerous benefits. There are flowers, grasses, shrubs, vines, and trees for any situation. If you are interested in modifying your current design, you must submit the necessary application and plans for review and approval by the Architectural Committee. Questions? Please contact Liz McCardle at 760-798-9015.

During the summer months when the kiddos are out and about, please remember to encourage them to stay out of the streets and to be considerate to the surrounding homes with respect to noise and play equipment.

San Elijo Hills Foundation Pace Car Campaign

The PACE Car Campaign was originally triggered by a long-time resident of San Elijo Hills. Her idea stemmed from the concept of PACE Cars and how they help set the pace during a race.

-What if every resident was driving the speed limit in SEH?
-How would that affect the pace of traffic through the community?
-Can we as residents help set the pace in SEH?

Let’s find out! By building on this PACE Car concept & getting residents to commit to being vigilant about the traffic limits around our community, we believe, together, we can create a culture of safety in SEH.

Anyone who lives in SEH is encouraged to TAKE THE PACE PLEDGE. In exchange for your pledge, the SEH Foundation will provide you with a special SEH PACE Car sticker for your car window. Not only will seeing this sticker remind you to drive the speed limit, it will also serve as a moving billboard that reminds others around you to consider doing the same.

To take the pledge, please visit the SEH Foundation Website: http://sanelijohillsfoundation.weebly.com/pace-car-campaign.html. You may also visit the San Elijo Hills Foundation Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SanElijoHillsFoundation

  • The San Elijo Hills Community Association supports the individual action by community members to address issues that affect us all, however, as a reminder, the streets within the community are public and under the purview of the City of San Marcos. The Association has no direct enforcement ability with regard to speeding, parking, or other traffic related concerns”

Water Restrictions Effective June 1st

On May 20, 2015, Vallecitos’ Board of Directors adopted emergency drought restrictions under Ordinance 195 that limits all outdoor irrigation, excluding certified agricultural or commercial growers, during the months of June through October to 2 unassigned days per week/8 minutes per station. If demands are not reduced by 24%, additional enforcement may be needed and the District may need to reduce watering to 1 assigned day per week.

Please remember to keep your yard weed free and maintained to ensure our community continues to look its best!

Committee Members Needed

Do you enjoy hiking, biking or strolling any of the 18 miles of trails in San Elijo Hills? Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the community? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then you may be perfectly suited to serve on the Trails Committee! The Committee is dedicated to keeping our trails safe and beautiful. If you are interested, please contact Rebecca McDonald at mcdonald@waltersmanagement.com for more information.
