New Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools


 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (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.

Good morning,  Fortunately, the air quality has improved in the San Ramon Valley and today schools may return to holding outdoor activities such as athletics, P.E., recess, etc. We will continue to closely monitor and be responsive to students and staff who are risk or are sensitive.  We have indoor accommodations available for students who may be more sensitive and need an alternative to an outdoor activity.

 

If the air quality changes due to the active wildfires and changing wind patternis we will move students indoors or modify activities based on current conditions.

10/13/2017

Dear SRVUSD Parents/Guardians and Staff,

We have made the decision to allow after school activities including homecoming parades and athletic events to take place today based on the current and predicted air quality conditions or weather. If there is a major shift in air quality, we will postpone outdoor activities and events today and will communicate directly with the appropriate stakeholders.

 

There are a handful of afternoon and evening events scheduled for Saturday. We will make a decision by a 9 a.m. Saturday morning regarding these events and communicate as needed.

 

Thank you for all of your understanding and patience over the last few days.

 

Sinclerely,

Elizabeth Graswich

Director of Communications & Community Relations

Parents- Drop off/pick up in front of gym to take a legal left turn on Stone Valley at the light.    There is no legal left turn out of the horseshoe during pick up and drop off hours.

Due to an increase in unsafe driving habits around Monte Vista, please be reminded of the rules of the road.  

 

Students- Take your time leaving class and the parking lots.  Pausing for ten minutes may save your life and your bumper. Uturns across the Stone Valley double yellow are illegal and unsafe.

 

Parents- Save time and traffic by picking your student up at 3:45pm after the student has studied for 30 minutes in the library or WSC. 

 

Parents- Drop off/pick up in front of gym to take a legal left turn on Stone Valley at the light.    There is no legal left turn out of the horseshoe during pick up and drop off hours.

 

Pedestrians- Stay in the car until safe to exit to the sidewalk.  There is no drop off in red zone or mid street for your safety.    

 

Thanks and be safe out there Mustangs!

STAFF ANNOUNCEMENTS

TB TESTING:  There is a TB clinic screening at the district office on Sept. 25 from 2:30-4. That said, if anyone wants to come to the MV health office on any Tuesday, Sarah Coleman will do your risk assessment questionnaire. As long as you pass the questions, there is no need for the PPD. The vast majority of people just need to do the questionnaire screening. Probably easiest to just drop by the health office next TuesdayJ

 

 

FRIDAY RED AND BLACK:  Don’
