College Park Feeder Pattern

School feeder patterns designate the schools that students follow as they progress from one level to the next. The goal is to keep students together as they advance from elementary school, to middle school, and finally to high school. Middle school and high school zones are comprised of the elementary attendance zones that feed into them. Strandwood students feed to Pleasant Hill Middle School, then to College Park High School. Click below to learn more about these schools.

Strandwood is excited to utilize HomeLink for the 2020-21 school year and beyond.  This system provides the ability to view student attendance, grades (MS & HS only), and other important educational information.

You will receive a HomeLink letter from your students teacher and will then need to sign up for an account.  If you already have an account with an older student, please use the HomeLink letter codes to add a student to your account.

HomeLink Hints:

* The phone number requested is the Primary Phone Number listed with the school.  This is a number you put as primary when you first registered your student.  Hint: It may be a (old) home phone number.  If you do not know which number you have as primary, please call the office (925-685-3212)

*HomeLink works best with Google Chrome on a desktop/laptop

*HomeLink does have an app on iPhone and Google Play- download these for much easier use on a phone
