Help Us Clean Up the Lost & Found

NEW LOST & FOUND POLICY

At the end of the day, every Friday, all clothes that have not been claimed and do not have a name on the tag will be donated that afternoon.  We encourage you to make sure your child's name is on their jackets, sweatshirts and sweaters and to have them check for missing items on a daily basis.

Digital Citizenship

Technology is an integral part of our students’ lives.  We want to ensure that students know how use technology wisely and as an essential tool in a rapidly changing digital world.  The District’s Technology Committee has selected three topics under digital citizenship that are important for our students to understand: cyberbullying, internet safety, and protecting their digital footprint.  The District’s Technology Committee is in the process of selecting age appropriate lessons, by Common Sense Media, for each grade level that will be delivered by their classroom teacher.  Students already learned about cyberbullying in 
October and the other topics are scheduled for January and Spring.  You can learn more about Common Sense Media and ways to discuss this topic with your family at https://www.commonsensemedia.org/.

See Unsafe Driving?? Report it!!

According to the SJPD - traffic complaints are addressed through the School and Neighborhood Enforcement program (SNE). Enforcement operations are based on the number of complaints the Traffic Enforcement Unit receives, and the danger the conditions create for the residents and the schools.  A Traffic Enforcement Request Form may be submitted when a resident, school official or business owner feels there is a chronic traffic problem. This form may be completed and submitted online.  Please be specific in regard to the day(s) of the week, times and locations the violations are occurring in order to fully address the issue.

 

Enforcement is rotated on a quarterly basis, and members of the community are encouraged to continue to lodge requests, so please spread the word!  The link to the Traffic Enforcement Request Form  is https://www.sjpd.org/_forms/TEU_Request_Form.asp

 

Please help us keep our students safe!!  There have been too many close calls due to excessive speed and unsafe or distracted driving practices.  Drive safely, and if you see a chronic issue, please request traffic enforcement.
