Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was a pleasure to see so many parents attend our Back to School Nights, meeting teachers and learning about educational and social emotional learning goals and expectations for the year.  Thank you for supporting your children by attending these important events.
What do Teachers do on Staff Development Days?
On September 19th, our staff participated in a training entitled, Cultural Competency as a Tool for Educational Excellence.  Led by expert Robert Greene, the day focused on diversity and bias awareness.  As a complement to our bully prevention and intervention efforts this year, we are excited to include this important component in which we will work to ensure optimal learning and inclusion for all students.  One of the beliefs discussed during the day was, "I thought about you before you arrived.  You have a place here".  The RUSD team is enthusiastic as we continue to learn more.
Bully Prevention and Intervention Information
Please click here ­­­­­or visit our home page for the link that provides parents with information and research on bullying behaviors, and what we can do to support students.  This page will be updated to provide expanded information on cyber safety, and information presented during my parent workshops on Monday, October 10 at Del Mar at 6:00 p.m. and Friday, October 28 at Bel Aire at 8:30 a.m.
2017-18 School Calendar
Last year, districts throughout Marin County collaborated to create a calendar for 2016-17 that aligns common vacations throughout the year.  School districts that matriculate into the Tamalpais Union High School District (TAM), such as Reed, follow the calendar that is approved by the TAM Board of Trustees.  Their district is in the process of negotiating their calendar for next year.  It is expected the proposed calendar will be finalized by November. Subsequently, we will meet with our teachers to negotiate the proposed calendar and then take it before the Board of Trustees for their consideration and approval.  We understand that parents rely on receiving calendars early in the year to make plans for the summer, so we appreciate your patience during this process.
Superintendent Coffee Chats
I welcome opportunities throughout the year for parents to meet with me to chat about things to celebrate in RUSD, and areas in which we continue to strive for excellence.  These meetings will be informal opportunities for open dialogue and for me to get to know you better.
Meetings will take place in the Boardroom, located on the Bel Aire campus (please sign in at the office) from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on the following dates.  Parking is available on Karen Way.
