Welcome Dr. Nancy Lynch - Next RUSD Superintendent
On Tuesday, May 19th, the Board of Trustees approved the employment contract with Dr. Nancy Lynch to be the next Superintendent of the Reed Union School District, effective July 1, 2015.   In her thank you address after the Board action Dr. Lynch expressed how much she appreciated the opportunity to work in such a distinguished school district and how she is looking forward to joining the Reed Union Family.  Dr. Lynch and her husband Tom joined the Board, administrative staff and parent leaders for a short reception following the meeting. 

Dr. Lynch currently is Superintendent of the Solana Beach School District in Southern California, where she has been for 3 years.  Prior to that, she served as Superintendent of Placerville Union School District for five years, and has more than 31 years experience in public education.  Her varied career includes teaching elementary school, serving as an assistant principal, principal and district administrator in Palm Springs and Beverly Hills, CA. Please join us in warmly welcoming Dr. Nancy Lynch to RUSD.  We are very excited to have her leadership and guidance in the Reed Union School District.

Reminder:  Celebration of Education on May 27, at 2:30 p.m!
This is a special time of year when we recognize the accomplishments of
our outstanding staff members and say thank you to those educators who are retiring.  Sponsored by the RUSD PTA, we once again will are combine multiple recognition events
into one "Celebration of Education" program.

The Celebration of Education will be held on Wednesday, May 27th at
2:45 p.m. again St. Stephen's Church Hall in Belvedere (see this link).  In
addition to announcing the 2014-2015 Phoebe Hearst and Christine
Carter Innovation Award teacher recipients, we will celebrate our Golden Bell
Teachers, our Rotary Teachers of the Year, and this year's retirees
Sandy Cabarrus and Ellen Mayer.

All District parents and staff are invited to attend the Celebration of Education.
NOTE:  This is a child-free event.

Please Drive Safely Around our Schools
We have received several reports from concerned parents and the Tiburon Police Department regarding parents driving in an unsafe manner during school drop off and pick up times.  Please be aware of children on their way to school, riding their bikes or walking in cross walks all along Tiburon Boulevard.  That fraction of a second you take to stop and make sure no one is in the cross walk could save lives.

Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0
Tickets are going fast but seats are still available on bus routes for the 2015-16 school year.  Currently over 1,050 one-way passes have been sold but some routes are running low on available seats.  (Buy tickets here!
