Announcing the Safety Task Force

Davis Joint Unified recognizes that the issue of student safety is not something we face alone, nor something we can fully address in isolation. To strengthen our safety net, we need our community’s support to identify risks and find ways to implement improvements in a timely manner.

 

The Davis Joint Unified School District cordially invites you to participate in a Safety Task Force. The Safety Task Force is designed to provide the Davis Joint Unified District with community input on a spectrum of safety-related considerations, challenges and solutions. The Safety Task Force process will also serve to direct feedback to a variety of school safety-related plans, including our Facilities Master Plan, scheduled to be finalized in May for Board of Education consideration.

 

All Safety Task Force meetings will take place in April 2018, and please see the schedule here. The Task Force meetings are open to the public and will include Spanish language interpretation.

March 13, 2018

Dear Emerson Families,

You may have heard that some students are planning on a walkout on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at Emerson Junior High. Some of our students desire to make a peaceful statement against gun violence with this walkout. The nationwide walkout is expected to begin at 10:00 am (the last 5 minutes of 1st period) and last for 17 minutes.  Since period 2 starts at 10:10, the walkout will extend into 2nd period.

Below is important information from the Davis Joint Unified School District.

Students’ Rights

  • Generally speaking, students have the right to freedom of speech and assembly on school grounds as long as it does not disrupt the educational environment.

Staff Roles and Responsibilities

          Maintaining a Safe and Functioning Campus

  • The main role of our staff during the walkout will be to provide a safe campus.
  • Teachers will remain in their classrooms, even if all students walk out.
  • Classified staff will remain at their work stations during the walkout unless directed to do otherwise.
  • Pre-identified site and district staff will work with Davis Police Department to supervise students who participate in the walkout.
  • Counselors will be available to assist students who need support.

Responding to Students’ Actions

  • Students who leave class to participate in protests, or for other unauthorized reasons, are considered unexcused. Teachers will submit accurate attendance records including recording unexcused absences and tardies.
  • Teachers will continue classroom activities with the least disruption possible and re-integrate students  who return with the least disruption possible
  • Teachers will be sensitive to the rights of students who choose to participate and those who do not.
  • Teachers may follow their normal grading practices regarding unexcused absences.

Ensuring Balance with Controversial Topics

  • Recent events have created opportunities for classroom lessons and discussion. Instruction concerning controversial topics shall be relevant to the adopted course of study and curricular goals and should be designed to develop students' critical thinking skills, ability to discriminate between fact and opinion, respect for others, and understanding and tolerance of diverse points of view.  
  • When providing instruction related to a controversial issue, it must be presented in a balanced manner, addressing all sides of the issue without bias or prejudice and without promoting any particular point of view.  (Board Policy 6144)

Parents and guardians were notified of this potential walkout the via this month’s Parent Broadcast and in a Constant Contact message from Superintendent Bowes on March 13, 2018. please see the DJUSD website for more information on these statements @ www.djusd.net. 

We recognize that there is a spectrum of viewpoints on this particular issue among our staff, students, and school community. At Emerson, we are united in supporting and appreciating each and every student we serve, and upholding a culture of safety and respect for diverse perspectives.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

 

Scott Thomsen, Principal

Emerson Jr. High School

Wednesday, March 14 marks a day of national interest around gun control activism. Our schools, depending on the level of interest from students, are prepared to engage students in discourse and activities that model civic engagement.  We also know some students will want to be part of the walkouts that are occurring nationally. As a school district we support student First Amendment rights, but must ensure student safety and uphold district policies and administrative regulations.  We share with you the following guidance so our community is clear on how Davis Joint Unified will be approaching any student walkouts.

During construction bicyclists and pedestrians, traveling east and west who used the Davis Little League Path will need to change their route

Route Changes Include:

  • When leaving Davis High School or North Davis Elementary and traveling eastbound:

Follow the detour signs through Community Park to the intersection of F Street and 14th Street.  At F Street and 14th Street, enter into the bike lane and ride until you reach F Street and 11th Street.  At F Street and 11th Street, a crossing guard will assist you with crossing F Street.  Then travel to H Street and follow the detour signs to the H Street tunnel. 

  • When traveling from Holmes Jr. High and traveling westbound:

Go through the H Street tunnel.  Follow the detour signs on H Street headed south towards 11th Street.  At 11th Street, continue to F Street where the crossing guard will assist you across the street.  Then travel to B Street.  At B Street turn north towards 14th Street.  There is a crossing guard at B and 14th.

  • Do not cut-through the apartment parking lots between F Street and H Street.  
  • Do not ride your bike the wrong way on the road.

 

A map of the detour can be found here.

On Monday, December 4th, 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm in the Emerson Gym, we are excited to be able to offer Nightmare on Puberty St. – a professionally produced live theatre program presented free of charge to our 7th and 8th grade students as a community benefit of Kaiser Permanente. Comedy, music, dance, and emotional drama take students on a tongue-in-cheek journey along the rocky road to adulthood.

 

It gives students an opportunity to talk about crucial health issues they may have found difficult to discuss, including:

 

peer pressure and self-esteem

first feelings of sexual attraction

depression and thoughts of suicide

coping with violent environments

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Today, October 11, experts have determined the air quality in Davis is unhealthy for all groups. The smoke from wildfires in our region continues to impact our city and county.

School remains in session but we continue to monitor the situation and the communications from the Yolo Solano Air Quality Management District and the County of Yolo.  Safety remains a top priority for our school community.  Individuals are encouraged to stay indoors with windows closed.   Students arriving at school this morning will be directed inside to multipurpose rooms or classrooms.  Students will remain indoors during recess, lunch and PE.  Athletic activities are being reviewed and updates will be available on the District and Davis website and Facebook throughout the day.  

If you have a student with health concerns, please contact your school office.

Further questions about smoke conditions can be sent to Maria Clayton,  DJUSD Public Information Officer at mclayton@djusd.net.

Audience: Emerson & Da Vinci Library, Assistant Principals, Parents, Principals, Staff, Students, Sys Admins, Teachers, All Grades, Grade 07, Grade 08, Grade 09 and Homepage

Students are now checking out textbooks from the Emerson & Da Vinci Library. Textbooks, English novels, and library books are a valuable resource for our students and we like to keep them in the best possible condition for continued use. Library staff are reminding students about book responsibilities and all students are given a copy of the following guidelines:

 

  • You are 100% responsible for any damage or loss to books checked out to you. This includes textbooks, English novels, and regular library books.

  • Cover your textbooks with paper or a store-bought stretchy cover to protect them from damage. Do not put tape or glue directly on the book!

  • You must report damage to a book within the first week of it being checked out to you, as you will be 100% responsible for the condition of the book after that.

  • Write your name in pen on the space provided inside the cover of your textbooks, as you are financially responsible if you lose your book.

  • Immediately report any issues with your books to the library!

 

The library will be providing paper and supplies for covering textbooks during lunch time once the library is finished with all textbook checkouts. Thank you very much, if you have any questions about library policies you may contact Lesli McCutcheon at lmccutcheon@djusd.net
