Last night the Governor of California issued a stay at home order for all Californians. While we know that the current situation may cause some anxiety, please know that, we will continue to support our students, their families, and our community by continuing to provide alternative learning opportunities, guidance to families on local resources, programs to help our first responders, healthcare and essential services workers find childcare so that they can continue to serve our community, seamless food deliveries to youth from 0-18 years old, and other services that will be necessary in the upcoming days and weeks. Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you, in advance, for your help and patience, as we work through this unprecedented time.

Dear Castle Rock families,
With the second term well under way, we want to thank everyone for your continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day.
Administration and faculty value the important contributions families make towards a student’s success in school; there is no question that success in school starts at home. Families are the most significant influence in a child’s education. Families model both verbal and non-verbal language in front of their children. One of the great hallmarks of a great school is the partnership between the school and families who work together for the best interest of all Castle Rock students.
We’ve identified mathematics assessment, intervention and instruction as three areas that provide opportunities to grow. The California Assessment of Student performance and progress (CAASPP) website provides support in these areas. Our students will participate in training, practice, and eventually will take the interim assessment as a lead up to the end of year state testing that happens each May.
To help support this process, teachers are providing “office hours” to help initiate assessment and help students navigate the curriculum they are struggling to understand. To learn more about office hours, contact your support teacher for more information.
Have a great March/April and please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns 464-0390.
“Tough players win.”
Jeff Slayton, Principal
Castle Rock Charter School
