Dear RUSD Parents,
We are grateful each day of the year for the wonderful students, staff and families who support our Vision. 
From the Reed Family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Reminder: Please Complete Yellow Bus Challenge Survey

Each family should have received one email request with the link to the Yellow Bus Challenge Survey last week. Parents are asked to respond before November 30. Your feedback is important to us as we plan for transportation services in the 2015-2016 school year. 


Security Cameras for Reed School

Thanks to a private donation, six security cameras will be installed at three locations on the Reed Elementary School campus over winter break (given good weather and the timely delivery of all components).  The cameras will be directed at entrance gates and the exterior of student restroom entrances.  The video feed will not be monitored by anyone other than school or district personnel, and it will be fed to a monitor located in the school office, where office staff will be able to view it.  Since the feed will be on a secure, web-based system, administrators can access the camera feed from their mobile devices, too.  The system stores recordings for three days only. 


We believe in the importance of protecting both the safety and privacy of our students, their families, and our staff members. The intent of installation of these cameras is to extend the visual coverage of the campus beyond what our staff members are able to provide.   If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about this security improvement, please email Superintendent Herzog at


New Crossing Guard for Downtown Tiburon

The Transportation Authority of Marin will now provide funding for an additional crossing guard, near the Belvedere Tiburon library. This will create a much safer situation for students who cross Tiburon Boulevard there. The new crossing guard will be in place as soon as s/he can be hired and trained.

Thank you, 

Dr. Steven Herzog, RUSD Superintendent
