Daily attendance is important for our students to continue to learn new standards.  Please try to make doctor/dentist appointments after school.  If for any reason your child is absent, please send a note when your child returns or you may contact the office

Free Breakfast

Breakfast will be served daily in the cafeteria between 7:30 and 7:45 AM. If you wish to eat breakfast, you must be in line by 7:45 AM.





We are so proud of our Nelson students for raising almost $2,000 for The American Heart Association through their annual Jump Rope for Heart at school.  The exciting event occurred on February 9th, when students participated in jumping, while they raised  pledges and donations to help others.  The care and support shown by our students and staff was tremendous.  Helping others feels good, and staying fit and healthy promotes a healthy heart.


Students are now able to access a wide variety of E-books from the county library system.  Students will need to enter their district user names and passwords to enter the electronic library.  Here is the link to get started:






Tdap booster requirements

California Law (AB354) requires ALL students entering 7th grade to provide the school with proof of a Tdap (Pertussis-whooping cough) booster shot before starting school!


Getting a booster shot now will protect your child against the ongoing threat of pertussis and meet a school requirement.

  • If your child has already received the Tdap booster, please bring your child’s immunization (shot) record as proof to your child’s school. 
  • If your child has not received a booster shot, please obtain it immediately.
  • Proof must be submitted before the 1st day of school or the student will not be allowed to attend school. No Shot/No Schedule/No School.


Please keep in mind our first day of school is August 6, 2014.
