    Coastal Clean-up Day: Join our school community as we help keep our local waterways clean and our local wildlife population safe. We will meet at the school at 8:45am then walk as a group to our clean-up site at 9:00am. Our clean-up site is the bike path on Sacramento St. All students must be accompanied by an parent or guardian. All participants must sign a waiver. Waivers will be provided on the day of the event.

    Our 1st season of Girls on the Run has come to an end! We'd like to thank our girls for their hard work over 10 weeks. As their end of season project they chose to lead a canned food drive for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. They were able to collect 172 pounds! Go Girls!!

    Fall Family Night

    Despite the smokey air approximately 200 Federal Terrace Community members came together to celebrate our students and learn about available resources. Students were awarded for their Trimester Perfect Attendance, Academic Achievement, and Recognition as well as Honor Roll for our 4th and 5th grade students. We also recognized our 30 students EL students who were Redesignated. We also recognized our inaugural Girls on the Run group for their hard work. 

    We'd like to extend a special thanks to: Mountain Mikes Target Plaza, Student Health,  our Obesity Prevention Program, Girl Scouts, and Another Chapter as well as our Federal Terrace PTA. 

    Attendance Reminders

    Ms. Vicky, and  Ms. Katt are the front office personnel for Federal Terrace Elementary. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at 556-8460 and they will be happy to assist you. Please recognize that the busiest time in the school office is 8:30AM-10 a.m. If your message is not urgent, please wait to contact us until after 10:00AM.



    Pick Your Children up On Time

    Please be diligent about picking up your child. It can be quite traumatic for children to wait even 10 minutes if they have not been warned ahead of time. Current telephone numbers are required for each child, so we can contact parents if it becomes necessary.

    Drop Off

    We do not have adult supervision until 8:10AM.  Your child(ren) will be on their own and unattended if you make the choice to drop them off at the school before 8:10AM. 


    Absence Line (Call 556-8460, press “1”)

    On any day that a child cannot attend school, a parent or guardian must call the school office to excuse the child, stating the reason for the absence. This check on attendance lets the school know that an absent child is safe at home and avoids the need for a note upon the child's return to school.

    Parents must call the absence line 556-8460 -  the evening before or the morning of a student's absence, then press “1” to leave a message stating your name, your child's name and the reason for absence.

    You must also call if your child will be late, more than thirty minutes, and your child must check in with the office when arriving late. If your child needs to be dismissed from school early, a parent or designated person must sign the student out. Please pick up your child in the office when requesting an early dismissal.


    Extended Absence

    In the case of an extended illness STILL call the school every day.   Whenever possible get a doctor’s note to excuse your absence.  Eventually the school will require a doctor’s note.



    Vacations while school is in session are STRONGLY discouraged, but if it is necessary to remove your child during the school year, you must notify the office one week in advance. The office staff is required to document this absence as unexcused.  Teachers will also need a one week advance notice if requesting work.
