Welcome Back, Eagles!

Dear Encinita Families,


Welcome back to the new school year! We are excited to welcome you back for the 2023-2024 school year. Our first day of school is August 16, 2023. School starts at 8am and dismisses at 12pm for the first day. Aside from Late Start Wednesdays when school starts at 9:30am, we expect all students to arrive no later than 7:50am every day. 


Aside from persevering through distance learning, we have a lot to celebrate. This year, we are adding 3rd grade to our Dual Language Mandarin Immersion (DLI) program, complementing our existing DLI Mandarin preschool and Kindergarten program. Recently, our school was recognized by the California PBIS Coalition with the Gold Level Award for successfully implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Thank you to our entire RSD community for your continued support. Congratulations, Eagles!


While we anticipate the first day of school on August 16, here is some important information to help you prepare for your return:

  • Welcome Back/Registration Fair is Friday, August 11 from 8:30am-1pm in our cafeteria. All students, returning and new, must complete the annual online PowerSchool Parent Portal Registration process. On this day, you will receive your child’s class assignment once all forms are completed.
  • Establish a consistent routine: bedtime, meals and wake-up time should always be as consistent as possible. We encourage all our students to get 10 hours of sleep.
  • Students are dressed appropriately for school. School uniforms are required for the 2023-2024 school year.  
  • Our school office is open starting Thursday, August 10 from 7:30am-4 pm daily to assist you.
  • The first day of school is Wednesday, August 16. Gates open at 7:30am. Breakfast is available daily from 7:30-7:50am and it's free.
  • Students are dismissed at 12pm on the first day of school.
  • Save the Date: Back-to-School Night is Wednesday, August 30 from 5:30-7:00pm.
