School Tours

Come visit Jose Ortega Elementary School! Tours are held on select Tuesdays from October 18th, 2016 – January 10th, 2017. Visit our newly remodeled campus, spend some time in our classrooms watching our teachers and students in action, and meet our principal, Mr. Benjamin Klaus. Tours are led by parent volunteers from 8-9am immediately followed by a question and answer period with our principal.

Reserve your spot now!



Some important notes for the beginning of school:
As we start the day bright and early, ready for the morning bell at 7:50am, we are continuing our Morning Stop-Drop-and-Go program coordinated by many Parent Volunteers. Please be mindful of their direction as you drive up to the school to safely drop your child off in the morning.

Traffic in the morning is one-way to the west on Sargent in front of the school. Make sure your students have their bags ready and their shoes tied so they can be assisted out of the car by our volunteers.

If you would like to walk in with your child, please find safe and legal parking in the neighborhood around the school.
