Dear San Ramon Valley Unified School District Staff and Families,

Our hearts go out to the families, friends and colleagues who lost loved ones in the devastating shooting at a Florida school this week. In light of this most recent event, I want to reassure you that the safety and well-being of our students, staff and families are a top priority for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.  

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has a comprehensive district-wide emergency preparedness plan in place. Every SRVUSD school has a safety plan that is specific to that school site. These Comprehensive School Site Safety Plans are approved by the School Site Councils. The plans are kept on file at each site and at the district office.

 

 

To ensure safety on a daily basis, our schools regularly review safety procedures with our students and staff, we conduct drills and have a strong partnership with our local law enforcement and fire district. Through these relationships, we continue to review and improve our emergency plans.  These relationships strengthen the safety and security of our schools.

 

 

It is crucial that we as a community continue to be aware of our surroundings and report any concerns of suspicious behavior to local law enforcement, a trusted adult or through the SRVUSD Report a Concern Form. If you have a site specific concern about campus safety please reach out to the school’s site principal. Please help us share the message that “if you see something, or know something, say something.

 

 

As always, counseling, mental health services and other assistance are available to any student, parent, or staff member who is seeking support. The National Association of School Psychologists provides the following tips for talking with students about violence:

·         Reassure children that they are safe.

·         Make time to talk.

·         Keep your explanations developmentally appropriate.

·         Review safety procedures.

·         Observe children’s emotional state.

·         Limit television viewing of these events.

·         Maintain a normal routine.

We hope you have a restful, relaxing President’s Day weekend.

 

Sincerely,

 

Rick Schmitt

Superintendent

SRVUSD will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.

The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools. 

 

The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.

Thank you all- the Junior Class grant has been FULLY FUNDED!   So the needed Chromebooks are on order.  

 

The Sophomore Class grant needs to be funded by February 5 or we receive none of the donations.  It is a quirk of the system.  So please donate.  $3061 still needed to meet the goal.  

Note from the English Department:  "We have designed lessons that allow students to incorporate visuals and music into their learning, to participate in online discussions, to get feedback from multiple voices on their writing, and to research deeper into the topics we are discussing in class. However, we can't do these projects if we do not have laptops available."

Help your students and your teachers get more out of their time by helping to fund their grants. Any little bit helps.

Warmly,

The English 10 and English 11 teachers.
