    Remind @ Monte Vista

    There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our students, and to improve in this area, changes have been made at Monte Vista in accordance with district board and administrative policy.  To ensure the smooth implementation of these changes, we believe it is important to communicate with you.  The improvements in safety will begin Tuesday, April 1, 2014.

    Our Districtwide emphasis on school safety includes the following:

    • Before and after school, only students and staff will be allowed inside the campus perimeter.

    • Parents can access staff, as they normally would, via the sign in/sign out procedure in the office for meetings, volunteer work, and other routine needs.  

    • While in session, school perimeters will be secure and locked.

    • During arrival and dismissal, one front gate will be open and supervised.

    • Employees and registered visitors will wear badges at all times.  

    • Students shall be released during the school day only to the custody of an adult in possession of a valid, government issued photo identification card and if:

    • The adult is the student’s custodial parent/guardian

    • The adult has been authorized on the student’s emergency card as someone to whom the student may be released and the custodial parent/guardian has given authorization by contacting the school

    • The adult has been authorized on the student’s emergency card and the custodial parent/guardian cannot be reached, after the principal or designee verifies the adult’s identity

    We want to thank our community for sharing this value of safety, and though some of procedures may take some getting used to, they are for the benefit of our students, staff, and parents.
