Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,


 As the new principal of Boulevard Heights Elementary, I bring 15 years of experience in the Broward School District to you. I am honored and humbled by this opportunity to serve you and your children. Mrs. Rippo and I are completely committed to ensuring that we provide a world-class education where students can grow in a safe and secure learning environment, that they become critical thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.

 Close collaboration between school and home is essential for the success of our students. We encourage parents to review the information provided in this website to gain familiarity of the school’s policies, procedures and services that are available at our school. We also encourage our parents to visit our school and attend scheduled meetings. Mutual benefits build when there is meaningful exchange of information between home and school.

 Boulevard Heights Elementary has a volunteer program in place that for many years now, has earned the Golden School Award. Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Advisory Council (SAC) and School Advisory Forum (SAF) are always actively looking for participants. I urge you to join and support the PTA in whatever manner your schedule allows. Your child will benefit.


Juan Alejo, M.Ed.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student will be taking the 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade FCAT 2.0 Reading, Math and Science (5th)  test(s) on April 22,23,24,25]. The FCAT 2.0 assessments are criterion-referenced tests that measure student achievement of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

Grade 5 students will also take the computer-based assessment for Mathematics on April 28 and 29.  Students have had an opportunity to participate in a computer-based practice test to become familiar with item types, and online tools during testing.

Students may find sample test questions and answer keys that are similar to the test at

Please review the following policies with your student before testing:

§  Electronic Devices—If your student is found with ANY electronic devices, including cell phones and smartphones, at any time during testing, including breaks (e.g., restroom), his or her test will be invalidated or not be scored. The best practice is for students to leave devices at home.

§  Testing Rules Acknowledgment—Prior to testing, test administrators will read the Testing Rules Acknowledgment and the next statement,    “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.”  Students must respond that they understand the testing rules by signing their names below the statement.

§  Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they affirm the acknowledgment states, “After the test, you may not discuss the test items with anyone. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on websites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.”  Tests will be invalidated, If students are found sharing information about test items.

§  Test InvalidationsStudents are responsible for working on their own during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. The FDOE employs a test security company  which detects similar answer patterns between students.  Student results within a school that show extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.

§  Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (for lunch, an appointment, or illness), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test session. If your student feels sick on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please avoid scheduling appointments on testing days.


If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Marcia Satz at 754-323-4950. For more information about the statewide assessment program, visit the FDOE website at

Thank you for supporting your student as he or she prepares for testing.

School and District Information

The following are important reminders:

 School hours are from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.

 Supervision is available from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.
Our students’ safety is our top priority. Nonetheless, by not following instructions, two years ago although there was no major injury,a car hit a student in front of the school while crossing the street. Last year we were extremely close to having children and adults ran over not once but twice.
Car riders are picked up at assigned loops on the east and west sides of the school. Best time to drive into the school is somewhere after 2:10 pm especially the first two weeks of schools. Coming earlier means only that you will wait longer in line, waste expensive gasoline, and become frustrated with the traffic.

Please help us ensure your child's safety. No left hand turn permitted coming in or out of the school parking lot.


If you have designated your child as a “walker” he/she is not to be picked up on an automobile. “Walkers” are students that walk to and from the school. 
We encourage all of our parents to become members of the various organizations that service our school. They are PTA, School Advisory Forum (SAF)  and School Advisory Council (SAC). They are the best way of getting involved with funding for your children’s education (PTA), giving us ideas for academic improvement (SAC), and expressing your remarks about school happenings, processes, etc. (SAF). Coming to the school only when there is aproblem with your child only helps you and your child. We want to help all of the children and continue being the high-quality education institution that we are.
This website, is the main hub for school communication.
By visiting it at least twice a week you will be informed of everything that is happening in the school and will have access to academic links foradditional practice at home, classroom websites, and emails address to all of the administrators and teachers.
