Due to capacity concerns at Gardner Middle School and growth expectations within the current attendance area, TVUSD administration has recommended changes to the current attendance boundaries beginning with the 2018/19 school year.   The attendance boundary changes will affect some students who live within the current Red Hawk Elementary and Gardner Middle School attendance areas.  Families identified based on affected addresses have been notified.  The new attendance boundary areas will divert a portion of the current attendance areas from Red Hawk Elementary to Pauba Valley Elementary and from Gardner Middle School to Vail Ranch Middle School.  The receiving schools can accommodate the proposed growth.  The proposed changes do not affect the high school attendance boundary of Great Oak High School.

 

Please know that currently enrolled student(s) who already attend Red Hawk or Gardner Middle schools will not be affected by next year’s change other than families will need to submit a Grandfathering Request Form to remain at the current school.  Current Red Hawk 5th graders will have the option to attend Gardner Middle School or Vail Ranch Middle School.  Attached is the Grandfather Request Form and information you will need to complete.  There will be a generous grandfathering policy as well as a plan to accommodate siblings so long as an older sibling is currently enrolled at the school.  Enrollment projections indicate that there are approximately 40 middle school and 60 elementary school students that this change will affect over the course of the next several years.

 

The proposed attendance boundary changes are highlighted below within the black lined area.  Beginning in 2018/19, new to the district students who live within the black lined area will attend Pauba Valley Elementary and Vail Ranch Middle schools.  The high school remains Great Oak High School.


(The streets affected by the new boundaries are: ADAM LN, ARBOR LN, ASHBURY PL, AVENIDA DE MISSIONS, BRIARWOOD PL, CALLE LOS PADRES, CHELSEA WAY,  CLOVER LN, CORTE CAPISTRANO, CORTE SAN GABRIEL, CORTE TAQUITO, CORTE VERANOS, COUNTRY GLEN WAY, DAVID LN, GABRIELLE LN, HEATHER WAY, HIGHWAY 79, KEVIN PL, REDHAWK PKWY, SAMANTHA LN, TAYLOR LN, VIA LUCIDO, VIA POQUITO, VIA RIO TEMECULA, VIA SANTA INES)
 

In an effort to share information about the boundary changes and answer any questions, TVUSD has scheduled a community meeting on Tuesday, February 13 at 6:00 p.m. at Pauba Valley Elementary School, 33125 Regina Drive, Temecula, Ca.  If you are unable to attend the meeting, please know that we will develop a frequently asked questions webpage and resources that we will share following the meeting with additional contacts and information.

All students entering 7th grade will need proof of having received a Tdap booster shot before starting 7th grade. By law, students who do not have proof of receiving a Tdap booster on or after their 7th birthday will not be able to start school.

 

We want to make sure your child starts school on time. In the past, doctor's offices ran out of the Tdap vaccine, so get our child's Tdap immunization now! Please bring a copy or send an email of your child's immunization record to the health office at: lkiester@tvusd.k12.ca.us by June 9th, to prevent your child's schedule from being delayed.

 

Please see the attached letter from the District Office regarding the immunization requirement for all incoming 7th graders.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 951-699-0080 ext. 2606.
