Dear Carrillo Families,

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a fun, safe, evening.

No Candy At School

Please remind your children not to bring any candy with them to school. We have several students with extremely serious allergies and even the smallest of peanut oil, wheat, or other allergens can lead to anaphylaxis, a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Students tend to sneak candy if they have it so it’s best left at home. Thank you for helping to keep all of our students safe.

Red Ribbon Week

Last week we recognized the importance of healthy habits in our Red Ribbon spirit week. Thank you to the Student Council and all families for your support.

Food and Diaper Drive to benefit Camp Pendleton Marines

As a reminder, we are collecting canned food, diapers, and wipes for young Marines and their families. With the holiday season on the horizon, we know how expensive it can be to feed a family and afford items like diapers and wipes. Our local Marines sacrifice so much for our nation, the Carrillo community is proud to give back every year to make their holiday season a little easier. Please consider donating to this wonderful cause! We are holding a grade-level competition to see which grade level collects the most items. Our tradition is that the grade level that collects the most will have special playtime with the Marines following the flag salute. More information will be provided about the Flag Salute and the visit by Marines as we are still ironing out the details.

Can you help with collections? Please click below to sign up to volunteer.
