Dear Parents and Guardians,
Reed Union School District staff and administrators are very grateful for the tremendous partnership we enjoy from our parent community to ensure our schools are exceptional places to learn that are rich with high quality programs to inspire and engage students. As we continue to always enhance and improve academic programs, we also focus on social/emotional learning for students to encourage them to be thoughtful and caring citizens who make a positive difference in others lives each day.
Our district staff will continue to learn about bully prevention and intervention strategies this year, while teaching curriculum to our students. We are very appreciative that our RUSD Board of Trustees approved an anti-bully pledge at last night's meeting, to be signed by all students and parents acknowledging that together, we are part of the solution to stop all forms of bullying that negatively impact our students.
To continue our partnership with parents, we ask that you review the attached Anti-Bullying Pledge with your child and sign with her/him to acknowledge a commitment to stop incidents of bullying that harm students well being and ability to learn at school.
To support parents, I will provide an informational session on what our schools are doing to address bullying, and what parents can do if they think their child is a victim of bullying or may bully others. There are two sessions scheduled to accommodate parent schedules. The first session will be October 10, at 6:00 p.m. in the Del Mar gymnasium, and a repeat of this session is scheduled for October 28, at 8:30 a.m. in the Bel Aire multipurpose room. I hope to see you there!
