CUSD Guidelines re: Possible School Walkouts

Posted 3/6/18

 

Dear CUSD Staff, Families, and Students,

 

The tragic event that transpired in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018, has left a deep and significant impact on our nation, including our very own students. Our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones and peers whose lives will be forever changed. These events spurred many emotions, conversations, and debates associated with the incident, prompting many forms of public action.  

We have listened to the voices of our students, our principals, and our parents. Many students have reached out to their principals and teachers with the desire to participate in upcoming events including the March 14, 10 a.m. nationwide walkout.  While CUSD supports the rights of our students to express their beliefs under the state and federal First Amendment rights, as a District we are not sponsoring or advocating any participation in demonstrations. Supporting the remarks by the California State PTA “care must be taken to ensure that orderly operation of the school is not disrupted and the physical safety of students is not threatened.”  We have all agreed that our focus will remain on instruction and learning and to keep students safe in classrooms.

 

If students walk out of their classrooms or the school, we will supervise and will work with our campuses to strongly encourage that these activities take place in the safest locations possible. Because this is a highly publicized known day to strangers, we continue to reinforce that the safest place to be is in the classroom.  We do not encourage students to congregate in open areas putting themselves at risk and we expect our students to follow the guidance of our principals and staff to ensure safety. In accordance with state law, we will not discipline students who choose to assemble, provided they adhere to District and school guidelines including, but not limited to:

 

  •  All activities must be peaceful and respectful
  • At no time may students leave the campus

 

Additionally, a student may be marked truant if they do not return to the classroom or if they leave the campus.

 

We continue to encourage parents to have a conversation with their students and to make their own expectations clear about participating in student demonstrations and these non-school- sponsored activities.  Principals and school staff who have been approached by students should continue to talk with them about this matter and maintain open lines of communication with parents.

 

To further support a safe campus environment, outside groups, parents/guardians, and other individuals who do not have official school business will not be allowed on campus to participate in the walkouts. As part of our normal operations, anyone visiting school campuses for school-related matters or for volunteer work must check in with the front office.

 

We are committed to the safety of all of our students and desire to assure staff, families, and students that our site staff will work tirelessly to create positive, supportive learning environment on all of our campuses in the event of any student demonstrations.

 

Our priority is student learning and safety. What we expect this month from our students will ensure that our students understand future expectations, as many other walkouts are being planned nationally.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ryan Burris
Chief Communications Officer

CALIFORNIA HEALTHY YOUTH ACT PARENT ED NIGHT:  Arroyo Vista is hosting a Parent Education Night regarding the California Healthy Youth Act on Tuesday, March 13 at 6:00 pm in the Elementary MPR. Parents will be able to learn about the law supporting Family Life curriculum and CUSD’s current steps towards implementing the curriculum.

The existing Family Life Curriculum will be presented in 7th grade this year.  Information with permission slips for the Family Life Unit will be passed out to 7th grade students later this year and we will have a parent preview of the current curriculum materials before it is taught.  6th and 8th grade will not present Family Life material this school year.

 

 

 

 

ARROYO VISTA TEXT-A-TIP:  Arroyo Vista has launched a new program called “Text-A-Tip” in another effort to keep school safe.  The program provides students with a confidential method to report problems directly to the school administrators and an OC Sheriff Deputy.  Text-A-Tip will allow students to report issues such as bullying, depression, fights, drugs, weapons, and any threats relating to campus safety.  Posters will be placed around the campus so students will be aware of the program and the phone number for sending their texts. 

Text-A-Tip to (949) 682-9341.  This program is not intended for emergency use.  In case of an emergency requiring immediate law enforcement response, students and parents should call 911.

 

 

 

 

DROP-OFF REMINDERS:  Thank you to everyone who stays in line, moves forward, and drops their children off against the curb in front of either the MS MPR or marque in front of the ES MPR.  You get that is takes everyone working together and doing the right thing to keep our children safe and makes our traffic flow.

Dear Parents,

 

I appreciate all the feedback I have received today regarding the incident yesterday.  Everyone is safe at Arroyo Vista K-8 and we continue to keep student safety as a priority.  Mrs. Nollar and I have followed up with students and I wanted to remind you Mrs. Beckman, School Counselor, is available to meet with anyone who would like to talk to her.  We are going to create a text-a-tip number for students and parents to use so we can be more effective in promoting: If you see/hear something, say something.  The PTA is looking at date to hold a school safety night that will include our School Resource Officer and district student safety department members as well as our School Counselor.

Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

Our campers have arrived safely to Science Camp.  The bus ride was uneventful, and everyone did great!  They are now getting settled into their cabins, meeting the counselors and hearing about the plans for the week.  They will be going on a short hike after lunch and then a night hike after dinner.  I will be going up to camp tomorrow to spend the morning and afternoon with our Wildcats.

I know how excited you are for all of our campers – rest assured they will be well taken care of.

Have a great rest of your day,

 

  

Joe McGann

CALIFORNIA HEALTHY KID PARENT SURVEY FOR ARROYO VISTA MIDDLE SCHOOL:  We need your help to complete an online survey to learn more about your opinions. This survey is an opportunity for you to communicate your perceptions about your child’s school.  If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Anthony Tran, Director of Assessment, at antran@capousd.orgYou will have access to this online survey until February 15, 2018.  Your participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.

  • This is an anonymous survey.  It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you.  Simply skip any such questions.
  • All questions apply to Arroyo Vista Middle School.
  • The results are for the use of CUSD.  The California Department of Education and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.

 

If you have more than one child at school, you will only need to complete one survey. Please fill out just one survey about the school using your oldest child as a reference.  Access the survey using the following URL:   https://surveys.wested.org/csps/CV743XX
