Picture Day is Friday, August 24. Every student will have his or her picture taken during P.E. for I.D. card purposes.  All sixth grade students enrolled in Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday/Friday zero period P.E. should attend P.E. at 7:30 a.m. 

Lifetouch envelopes will be distributed to students during their sixth period class next week.  Families purchasing picture packages should send the completed order form envelope with exact payment to school with their student. Your student will give the envelope to the photographer when they have their picture taken. You may also order picture packages online at mylifetouch.com. The school picture ID is BY418868Q0.  

Students are encouraged to look their best and dress appropriately as the District dress code will be enforced.

With children starting a new school year, the Livermore Police department is reminding our community of the need to drive safely around and through school areas. Please keep these important tips in mind especially during the busy morning and afternoon hours around our neighborhood schools.
•  Parents should plan their child’s walking/riding route to school and discuss safety topics with their child surrounding the designated route.  Students should never jaywalk.  Bicycle riders must ride the same direction as other traffic.  Bicyclists must obey the rules of the road.
•  Students should not cross against red lights, whether walking or on bikes, scooters or skateboards.
•  Motorists approaching school zones should keep an eye out for children at all times.
•  Parents who drive their students to school are reminded to use the school’s drop off and pick up zones and become familiar with the established rules of the drop off/pick up zone.  Parents should never stop their vehicle in the middle of crosswalks or let students exit their vehicles in the middle of the street.
•  Parents should avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces students to unnecessarily cross busy streets — often mid-block instead of at a crosswalk.
•  Drivers should always prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus.
•  Drivers must stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.
While we know that mornings and afternoons can be hectic times in getting to or from school, there is no situation that is so important that students and parents can’t take the time to do it safely and legally.

The district office sent Christensen families their Infosnap snap codes via email or US mail on August 3.  If your family does not receive a snap code notification by August 10, either by email or US mail, please contact the CMS office at (925) 606-4702. Our office will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The school will have computer access for those families needing assistance.

It is mandatory that all parents complete the Infosnap update for each of their children, whether they are new to the district or returning. Only the primary parent/guardian will receive the notification. If a secondary parent or guardian would like their emergency contact information on file with the school, they may submit a completed emergency card to the school office. Students with incomplete emergency contact information will not receive their schedules at Orientation Day on Tuesday, August 14, until their information has been updated.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Christensen Middle Students and Family Members,

During Christensen Middle School's 2018-19 school year, registered students will be eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass - a Clipper Card that provides unlimited access to LAVTA Wheels bus services. These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Pilot, a three-year effort sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded through Measure BB, a local transportation sales tax measure.

Christensen Middle School is one of fifteen schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the coming year. The pilot program is expected to run from August 2016 through July 2019.

To obtain a free Student Transit Pass you must complete and sign the registration, consent, and release form (see attached document). Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the registration form as indicated. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a Clipper card within 3 weeks.

Return the completed form at school registration. You may also submit a completed form to Mrs. Francine Laronde in the front office beginning the first day of school. Copies of this registration, consent, and release form will also be available at school registration and at the front office. If a student loses their card during the school year, it can be replaced. For additional information, please see the attached documents.

Questions may be directed to Mrs. Francine Laronde at flaronde@lvjusd.k12.ca.usor Mr. Ben Kaufman at bkaufman@nelsonnygaard.com.
