Back to School Information

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year.   I am extremely excited to be returning to Newland Elementary for what I know will be a fantastic year!  The faculty and staff at Newland are dedicated to creating a safe and orderly learning environment where each student may achieve to the highest ability.  It is our goal to work in partnership with the community and parents to produce students who will be well educated citizens of our future communities.  Cooperation and communication between the school and home play a major part of any child’s success, so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.   We hope this will be an enjoyable, positive and productive year for your child.  Once again, I'd like to welcome you to Newland for the 2015 – 2016 year.  I, along with the entire staff, am eagerly looking forward to what is sure to be a wonderful year.


Here is some other important information:

  • School Office is closed to the Public and will re-open on Thursday, August 24th, 8:00-3:30
  • First day of school is September 9th at 8:15
  • Class Supply List Download

We have also teamed up with Brick by Brick, a non-profit organization which offers the opportunity to purchase school items directly on-line, with items generally 50% below retail price, while helping support Newland, all at the same time.  This allows families to avoid shopping and waiting in lines, while offering the chance to complete your back to school shopping in less than two minutes!  More information can be found by clicking on the Brick-by-Brick website, and then clicking on the parent button once at the website. 


I cannot truly express how honored and proud I am of all of all of the teachers, students, and staff, past and present, at Newland. From the moment I stepped on campus, I have known the people who work and volunteer at Newland are of Blue Ribbon quality.  Additionally, we have some amazing students who awe me daily. Newland receiving the National Blue Ribbon Award is another validation of what parents, teachers, our community, and I have known for some time... Newland is AWESOME!




Parents, PTA has set up a website where you can purchase membership, spirit wear, 100 mile club and yearbooks online.

Reporting Absences

Good attendance is key to a child's success at school. However, there are times that a child is too ill to come to school.  Children are considered too ill to attend school if they have a fever of at least 100 degrees, vomiting, or have diarrhea.  If your student will be absent from school for any reason, please make sure to report their absence as soon as possible. 

To report an absence 24 hours a day, call 714-378-4202 or you can email the above information to our school at:

When reporting an absence be sure to let us know:

  • Your child's name
  • Date of absence
  • Your name and relationship to the child
  • Reason for absence
