  • 2. Board Mailout January 11, 2013 Page 2 of 5 BOARD FOLLOW-UPS Return from Break: Happy New Year! I trust you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season. Students and staff have returned, and are ready for the second semester. We had a very smooth first week back including the opening of our four new Kindergarten classes.    It’s   hard to believe that the year is half over. Budget Meetings: As you know, two Community Budget Meetings will be held as follows: Tuesday,  January  22,  6:00  PM  in  Diamond  Bar  High  School’s  Theater, and Thursday, January 24,  6:00  PM  in  Walnut  High  School’s  Theater.    This  information  has  been  disseminated  to  all   schools, is posted on our website, and will be advertised on school marquees (see attachment). Board Meeting: Thank you for your participation on Wednesday evening. Please be reminded that a Special Board Meeting, to discuss the Superintendent Search, has been scheduled for Thursday, January 31, 6:00 PM at the home of Helen Hall. For your information, the attached letter was sent to several search firms soliciting RFPs. Congratulations to Castle Rock Elementary School honorees Jacqueline Miranda (Super Star Student), and Cantrell Photography (Partner in Education). Congratulations also to South Pointe Middle School honorees Angeleena Escamilla, and Joseph Aguilar (Super Star Students), and Gordon Mize (Partner in Education). GENERAL INFORMATION Emergency Prep: Today, Friday, January 11, 2013, C.J. Morris Elementary School conducted an emergency drill to rehearse an environmental hazard on campus scenario. Students and staff were directed to enter or remain indoors for the duration of the drill. With lights out, doors shut and locked, everyone was asked to remain quiet in order to listen for directions. This 20-minute drill was CJM’s first step in preparing students for an actual lock-down drill involving an intruder on campus. The emphasis was for students and staff to practice the procedure of following directions, remaining calm and quiet, and quickly moving all students to an inside space. CJM staff will be meeting to debrief this drill and to plan a follow-up drill with the scenario of a stranger on campus. This drill was attended by and planned with consultation from Deputy Ken Leyva of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s  Department. Additionally, Assistant Superintendent Jeanette Ullrich is working with Walnut   Sheriff’s   Substation  Deputy  Daly  to  provide  him  with  each  of  our  school  site’s  Emergency/Disaster  Plan. As you know, the safety of our students and staff has been, and will always be the highest priority at every one of our schools. We will continue to be vigilant in our commitment to ensure that our schools are safe.

These changes will realize some savings for the second semester. TK: The Transitional Kindergarten program will be at Castle Rock, Vejar, Evergreen, Collegewood, and C.J.
