    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,


    We are pleased to provide an update on the incident earlier today at Mary Peacock School.


    The Sheriff's Department has thoroughly investigated the situation and has confirmed that the sounds were due to hunters engaging in target practice on private property. They have assured us that, at no point, was there any threat to our staff or students.


    We appreciate the swift response of the Sheriff's Department and are grateful for their thorough investigation. As always, the safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.


    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.





    Today, at approximately 10:15 AM, out of an abundance of caution, Mary Peacock Elementary School initiated a voluntary shelter-in-place after reports of sounds resembling gunshots were heard from the nearby wooded area off school premises.


    Local law enforcement is currently responding to the situation.


    To ensure the safety of all students and staff, we request that parents and guardians do not come to the school, until further notice. It is imperative for everyone's safety that we allow law enforcement to manage the situation.


    We will provide updates as we receive additional information from law enforcement. Again, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

  • Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Registration


    This year the State of California is implementing new staffing requirements for transitional kindergarten classes the upcoming school year. If you have a child who will be entering transitional kindergarten or kindergarten next school year, I’d encourage you to begin the school registration process. To prepare for next year's changes and to ensure that your child has the best educational experience, we need to know how many students we’ll have for the upcoming school year in our TK and K programs. Registration packets for next year will be available at all of our district schools. Remember, the registration packets must be submitted to your child’s home school. For more information on registration or to find which school your child may attend, call us at 707-464-6141.
