  • A Message from Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch 

    August 21, 2019

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! RUSD staff is back from Summer break and getting classrooms ready to receive students. The annual District Welcome Back staff event was held on Monday, where the District focus on equity and inclusion was renewed and embraced by all. As stated in our Diversity and Inclusion Statement:
    The Reed Union School District community is committed to creating and sustaining an inclusiveequitable and respectful environment in which each person has a sense of belonging and is provided the support to thrive.
    The Reed Union School District community believes that valuing visible and invisible diversity is essential for an inclusive teaching and learning environment that fosters educational excellence for all.
    Kindergarten and New Student orientation took place this morning at Reed and Del Mar with much enthusiasm and excitement! Our entire staff is looking forward to welcoming students back tomorrow, which is an early release day. Students will be released at 1:40 at Reed, 1:35 at Bel Aire and 2:05 at Del Mar. Friday will be a regular school day schedule.
    CAASPP Testing
    Students in grades 3 through 8 were administered Smarter Balanced assessments during the Spring of this year. We have received the English Language Arts and Mathematics results; as well as and PE for 5th and 7th graders. Test results will be mailed next week. Science testing results will not be available until December or January.
    Safety Procedures and Training
    The safety of students and staff is of the utmost importance to RUSD. In January 2019 the Board of Trustees approved a contract for perimeter fencing to be installed on all 3 campuses, with the goal of channeling visitors to the front office for check in prior to entering the campus. Over the summer the contractor, under the vigilant eye of our Maintenance Department, installed fencing and gates, including "panic" hardware which allows quick egress in the case of an emergency, while requiring a key to enter. Gates will remain open during hours when students are arriving in the morning, and will be locked immediately after the starting bell rings. Students arriving after starting bell will be required to go through the front office as usual. Students and staff will receive training on the new procedures. 
    Annual Parental Notice
    California Education Code requires school districts to provide notice to parents or guardians of minor pupils regarding parental rights as well as other important information. Please take a moment to review the 2019-2020 Annual Parental Notice. Education Code also requires parents/guardians to sign the notice acknowledging that they have been informed of their rights. Please complete the last page of the notice and return it to your child's teacher.
    Kind regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
