HELPFUL TIPS

Student safety is of the utmost importance. During the first week of school there is more traffic than normal. Please take special care when dropping off or picking up your student. Parking/Drop Off Area Reminders: Park your car in appropriately marked areas only. There are limited Visitor spots in the parking lot. Please park along Antone or Bridgepointe. The driveway in front of the school is for drop off and pick up only. Please do not leave your car unattended when dropping off or picking up your student. To drop off or pick up in the loading areas, your car should be against the curb. It is unsafe to load or unload away from the curb. Please drop your student off at the front of the school only.

A Note from The Principal, Dr.Lorianne R. Ventura.

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

Do you know what a digital tattoo is?  Do you know how to recognize and report cyberbullying?  How can you make learning about digital citizenship fun for your kids?  Dublin Unified has created one-stop shopping for teachers, students, and parents/guardians on the topic of Digital Citizenship, follow this link for more info: https://www.dublin.k12.ca.us/Page/10380

DUSD FACILITIES MASTER PLAN

A FEW SAFETY REMINDERS

Morning drop off and afternoon pick up are busy at John Green. With over 900 students trying to get to school at the same time the streets are packed with cars, bicyclists and pedestrians.  As winter is approaching bad weather only makes this process more difficult and potentially dangerous.  Please remember the following simple tips and together we can help keep our children safe:
 
1. Drive slowly and watch for pedestrians and bicyclists.
2. Cross the street at a crosswalk.  Crossing in the middle of the road is dangerous and makes it hard for cars to see you. While it is faster to simply cross the street, doing so comes at a great risk. Further, we want to model appropriate behavior for our students so they can make responsible choices when they are older.
3. Always wear your helmet while you are riding your bike, scooter, or skateboard.
4. Put your cell phone away.  Whether you are driving or walking your cell phone is a distraction, and even a quick glance at your phone can be dangerous.
5. Be patient and leave a little extra time to get to school.  When we rush we are more likely to make a mistake or not see everything that is going on around us.
