San Marcos goes back to school after winter break

San Elijo Middle Traffic
Traffic delays expected during daily commute
After a winter break, San Marcos students are headed back to school. With elementary, middle and high schools along with Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College back in session this month, I-15 and SR-78 travelers can expect increased traffic delays during their daily commute.

While the increase in traffic congestion is familiar to city residents, students and commuters alike, the City of San Marcos is pleased to report that continued relief is on the way.

In the city’s ongoing efforts to get motorists moving and improve traffic flow, several roadway improvement projects are lined up over the next year. Planned projects include resurfacing of Rancho Santa Fe Road and annual pavement repair work throughout the community. Intersection safety upgrades throughout the city that have highest collision rates will receive safety improvements this spring. This summer, residents will also see a new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of South Santa Fe Road and Smilax Road to make it safer to cross through the intersection.

During the school year and periods of roadway construction, drive with caution and provide ample time to reach your destination safely and on time.

San Elijo Hills Resident on First Episode of Chopped Jr, November 10th

IMG_2942-1

Eleven year old San Elijo Hills resident Talia Thessen could only dream about being on the Food Network when her family left San Elijo Hills and moved to a small village outside Moscow, Russia in 2012. Her engineer father was transferred to to a small Russian village called Potavo where very few people spoke English and the family followed. Being a self-proclaimed “foodie”, Talia would stream Food Network’s Chopped show to study her craft and feel closer to home. She couldn’t have dreamed in just a few short years, she would be in the Chopped Kitchen competing on the very first edition of Chopped Junior!

Check out fellow San Elijo Hills resident and SEMS sixth grader, Talia Thessen on the very first episode of Chopped Jr, November 10th at 8 pm on the Food Network!

Hello SEES Families,

Thank you for your quick response to our incident on Monday morning on the trails.  With the help of several parents, we have been able to identify the person who was offering our students candy.  Our school resource officer visited his home and spoke to him and his family about stopping this action immediately.  The man does live in our community so you may encounter him on the trails. We have no further information to believe that there is any further concern.

Please continue ongoing conversations with students about stranger danger as well as keeping the school office informed of any situations.

Thank you for your support!

Keeping Families Informed about School Safety

This message was sent to San Elijo Elementary School Families this afternoon. 
A message from SAN ELIJO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Hello SEES Families,

Today just before school started one of our students was approached by a stranger and offered candy multiple times on the trails near our back gate. The man did not touch the student but did interact with the student. The student’s parent was with the student the entire time. Both parent and student safely walked to our office to notify the office and call the sheriff.  At that time the school also called the sheriff and the entire campus went on a soft lockdown.  All doors were secure and instruction continued as the sheriff walked the trails.

Unfortunately, the man was not located.  He was identified wearing a light blue/gray t-shirt with plaid shorts. The man was medium height and built with graying hair.

All staff members were informed and put on alert today.  All classes had an age appropriate conversation about stranger danger and walking home with a buddy. This is also a great time as parents to have that conversation about stranger danger at home.  You can even have your students role play the actions that they would take.  Research indicates that students need to practice a scream so they can recognize how loud the scream should be.

The trails were walked multiple times by many staff members prior and during dismissal today to ensure students safety.

We are fortunate to live in a community with many adults walking to and from school to keep an eye on all of our children.

Thank you for your support!
