What is Farmigo?

Farmigo is an online farmer's market that offers local vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, eggs, dairy, breads, and more from small family farmers and food makers.  Farmigo is partnering with Montgomery Elementary to deliver groceries to our school community.  Even better, roughly 60% of the money from our purchases will go directly back to the farmer (that's 2-3x what they'd make selling through a traditional supermarket).  Plus, with enough orders 10% will also go towards raising funds for the school!


How Does it Work?

1.  Join our Community at:  www.farmigo.com/montgomeryelementary

2.  Shop!  There's no commitment to order, no minimums, and no delivery fees.

3.  Place your order by Thursday at midnight each week.

4.  Pick up your order every Monday from 2:00-2:30pm at the school.

5.  Your credit card will be charged on Tuesdays - and don't worry, there's a 100% money-back guarantee on every item!


Place your first order by Thursday, May 10th at midnight.

End of the Year Lunch Account Balances

The Evergreen Child Nutrition Services Department takes pride in serving nutritious meals daily to our students. We are firm believers that hungry students can’t learn. Under no circumstances do we want a child to go without lunch.


We understand that parents are busy and may occasionally forget to pack a lunch or send in money, however the number of students with a negative balance has grown significantly over the past couple of years. As you know, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide students with lunch or a means to pay for meals.

Beginning May 30th  there will be no extending of credit for Breakfast or Lunch through the last day of school.  Your child will need to bring cash, check or use the credit balance on their lunch account. This will hopefully cut down on the amount of money owed at the end of the school year.


Also, if your student has an outstanding balance please send in your payment before Friday, May 27th to ensure that proper credit is applied to your students account.


 When you receive your parent handbook at the beginning of the year, be sure to sign up with Parent Portal with your email address.  You can then receive notifications of your child’s balance twice a week.  Also available is the online payment system Myschoolbucks.com for tracking the lunch balances and/or for adding funds to the lunch account.


If you have any questions please contact  the Child Nutrition Services Department at: 408-223-4500.

Evergreen School District Transfer Process

Evergreen School District Transfer Process

As we begin planning for 2016-2017 enrollments, the following dates are important to keep in mind:


New/Renewal of Interdistrict Transfer Requests Accepted Through Friday, May 27, 2016

If your child is currently attending an Evergreen School District school on an Interdistrict Transfer (i.e. you reside in another school district), you will need to begin the renewal process at your resident district office.  Interdistrict Transfers must be reviewed annually; your child will not automatically be placed in a class for the 2016-2017 school year.  Interdistrict Transfer Requests received before May 27th will have first consideration for placement for the 2016-2017 school year.


School Choice Transfer Requests Accepted Monday, May 2 – Friday, May 20, 2016

If you are a resident of the Evergreen School District but wish for your child to attend an Evergreen school other than your home school, you must complete a School Choice Transfer Request form. “School Choice” placements are dependent on space availability and are offered on a lottery system. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent and will not be provided by the district. Forms will be available at your neighborhood school and at the Evergreen School District Office at 3188 Quimby Road after Monday, April 4, 2016.  Completed requests will be accepted at the District Office during the request window: Monday, May 2, 2016 through Friday, May 20, 2016.  Requests received after Friday, May 20, 2016 will not be included in the lottery. These requests will be put on a waiting list.


Open Enrollment Transfer Requests Accepted Monday, May 2, 2016 – Friday, May 20, 2016

As an Open Enrollment School, parents have the option of requesting a school transfer for the 2016-2017 school year for their children to any public school that has a higher API score.  Transportation is the responsibility of the parent and will not be provided by the district.  Additional information regarding requirements, the process, and Open Enrollment Request forms are available at the Evergreen School District Office (3188 Quimby Road, San Jose, CA 95148).

Facilities Update

Under a new law known as SB277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccination.  Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at Kindergarten (including Transitional Kindergarten) or 7th grade.

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact your local health department Immunization Education and Planning Program 408-937-2271.

Parking Lot Safety

car-rider_line.gif     The safety of all our students is of utmost importance to us.  Parking Lot Speed is 5 miles per hour or slower for student safety.  Students need to be escorted through the crosswalks in the parking lot.

     Buses receive priority in the drive through lane.  As so, the yellow gates into the parking lot are CLOSED during the mornings and afternoons, so the buses have a place to drop off students safely.  Please drop off your students in the loading zone in front of the school.

     When there are no buses and the gate is open, the drive-through lane is ONLY for drop-off and pick-up of students in the designated YELLOW curb area. PARKING IS NOT PERMITTED.

   RED CURB:  It is unlawful to stand, or park a vehicle whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.  EMERGENCY vehicles need access.

     DISABLED PARKING:  It is unlawful for any person to park or leave standing any vehicle in a stall designated for disabled persons without proper authorization.
