    A Message from Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch
    December 11, 2019

    Dear RUSD Families,
    California Law Regarding Safe Storage of Firearms
    In light of incidents across the country of children bringing firearms to school, I would like to provide families with information on California law regarding storage of firearms.
    California law holds a person criminally liable if they negligently store or leave any loaded firearm on their premises where a child is likely to gain access to it—regardless of whether or not the child brings the gun to a public place. The easiest and safest way to comply with the law is to keep firearms in a locked container or secured with a locking device that renders the firearm inoperable, with ammunition stored separately.
    RUSD staff is dedicated to making our schools as safe as possible, but schools alone cannot prevent incidents of gun violence. The California Department of Education provides important information on their Violence Prevention webpage and additional safety information including "Rules for Kids" can be found on the Department Of Justice Firearm Safety webpage. Please see the letter from our community partners on this subject.
    Together we make every effort to keep our children safe.
    Uniform Complaint Procedures
    School Districts are required to annually inform parents, guardians and staff regarding its Uniform Complaint Procedures. If you would like to have a copy of this policy, please contact the District Office.
    Equity Resources for Families
    Parents are always the first educator in their child’s life. As children get older, sometimes parents wonder what their role is once children enter elementary or middle school. Our schools provide multi-layered social emotional learning programs that enhance your efforts at home to build character traits such as respect, kindness, honesty and compassion. Additionally, students participate in lessons that promote social justice with the themes of identity, diversity, justice and action. To continue to support this work at home, Family Table Talk provides conversation starters for your consideration.
    Best regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
