Update on CLC Location

Posted on

Dear Community,

Last night at the San Carlos School Board meeting (*), the Trustees decided that the new CLC campus will be located on the upper part of the Tierra Linda property.  When viewed both from a fiscal perspective, as well as what would provide CLC with the best sense of place, the School Board concluded that our future campus would be built on the area currently occupied by the softball field, Edison Montessori, and the District preschool classrooms.  This is well aligned with the position we expressed to the School Board last month, and we again thank the District and Trustees for the level of collaboration and support they have shown towards CLC throughout this process.

The District’s new 4/5 grade Bridge school will occupy the finger buildings where CLC is currently located.  These buildings will be retrofitted and renovated to accommodate this new district program.  The school district sent out a communication about the decision today and you can read that here.

There remains, of course, much work to do next.  The timeline for site preparation and construction of our new campus is currently being finalized by the District.  Also, the School Board gave direction to the Superintendent to begin working with the leadership at Edison Montessori to determine where that school will be located.  Finally, the exact details of our own role in the new CLC construction project is being discussed, and as that is clarified we are anticipating an exciting process of designing and building the future CLC campus to meet the needs of our educational program.

We will be updating the community on a regular basis as we begin the process of planning and building our new campus.  Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to give you timely and accurate information.

Sincerely,

Stacy Giles Emory, School Director

and

Matt Kowitt, CLC Board Chair

CLC’s position about best relocation option

Posted on

As many of you are aware, there is an active discussion and decision making process going on district-wide about where CLC will be relocated.  The San Carlos School Board is meeting this Thursday evening (August 28 at 7:15 PM) to make a decision about where to place us on currently owned district land. The choice seems to be between Heather Elementary or on the upper part of Tierra Linda campus.
As part of this process, the SCSB has asked us what our position is on the relocation site – not that we will have ultimate say – but to continue to hear our voice in this process. Today we sent a letter to the Superintendent and the SCSB explaining our preference and detailing our reasons for this preference. You can read the full text of that letter by clicking on this link: LetterToSchoolBoard_August2014-final

Please read! Important information about new traffic procedures for the 2014 2015 school year.

Posted on Updated on

Over the summer, a group of representatives from all the schools on our campus plus district personnel worked together to ensure the continued safety of our kids. Some of the improvements are external to our campus (a professional crossing guard at the intersection of San Carlos Avenue and Dartmouth, for example) but the main emphasis is on changing behaviors at drop-off and pick-up times.

For this to work, parents need to be aware of the new procedures and commit to following them.  If we all work cooperatively in this effort, traffic flow and the safety of our children will improve dramatically.

PLEASE READ the following TL Campus Traffic Safety pamphlet carefully! If you have any questions, feel free to contact the CLC office.
