Message to Parents/Guardians

Dear Parents/Guardians:

When you are involved, your child achieves more!  Research shows that regardless of the economic, ethnic, or cultural background of the family, when parents/guardians are involved in their children's education, students have:

  • Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
  • Better school attendance
  • Increased motivation
  • Better self-esteem
  • Lower rates of suspension
  • Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
  • Fewer instances of violent behavior
  • Greater enrollment rates in post-secondary education

Here are several ways that you can monitor your student’s progress:

  • Expect your student to have homework. S/he should spend two hours a day studying and doing homework.
  • Does your student need additional help? S/he can schedule an appointment with his/her individual teachers to get additional help during lunch, after school or Saturday School.
  • Tutoring is also available in all subjects in the Library: Monday – Thursday from 3:00 to 4:30 pm.
  • Check your student’s attendance through School Loop or ParentVue. If you have specific questions about attendance, contact
  • Check your student’s grades on School Loop – You will need to know your student’s school ID number and have an e-mail account in order to register with School Loop.  You can register at lbcabrillo.schoolloop.com/portal/login. Stop by the Parent Center or contact Maria Gallegos at ext. 7741 if you need help with registration.
  • If you do not have Internet access, your student can obtain grade printouts from his/her teachers or counselor via email or appointment.
  • Maintain contact with your student’s teachers and counselor.
  • Participate in Back-to-School, Open House Parent Nights and check for the next progress report.
