SCHOOL BUS SAFETY

CLICK HERE FOR MORE VISUALS

The law mandates that all vehicles must stop when the school bus is loading and unloading students.  You must stop for a school bus that is stopped with its red lights flashing whether it is on your side of the road, the opposite side of the road or at an intersection you are approaching. After the school bus red lights have stopped flashing, watch for children along the side of the road and do not proceed until they have completely left the roadway and it is safe to proceed.

It is a State regulation that students board the school bus at their assigned bus stop.  Our school and bus drivers are collaborating with local police departments, tribal communities and Sandoval County to ensure student safety.  The District Building Administrator (Principal) will receive Incident Referrals on students who board the bus at a bus stop not assigned to the student per the address provided at school registration.  Per the State of NM's PED Transportation Unit, a student can lose their school bus riding privilege due to violations of school bus safety.

We appreciate your support and compliance with the law and regulation regarding school bus safety as we do not want to be amongst the horrific school bus accidents that occurred last week within the Nation.  Please keep in mind “Safety is like ABC, Always Be Careful.”

New Research Shows Nearly Half of American Parents Underestimate the Harm of School Absences


 
A student who misses just two days of school each month — 18 days total in the year — is considered to be chronically absent. However, many parents don’t realize that, even when excused or understandable, absences add up and can greatly impact a child’s education. In the United States, more than 6 million children are chronically absent from school each year....Click here to read the full article.

School Visitor Management System

Raptor

JVPS is using Raptor, a visitor management system that enhances school security by reading a visitor's driver's license and/or state ID and checking the information against multiple security databases and establishing a consistent visitor sign-in process across the district. When the visitor is accepted, the system prints a visitor's sticker with a picture identifying him/her as an approved visitor.

Raptor only scans the visitor's name, date of birth and photo for comparison purposes. No other personal identifying information is saved. 

Check in

If the system raises a question about a visitor's background, the school administrator will take the necessary steps to ensure the appropriateness of each individual's visit.

Upon your initial visit to a school, the process will take approximately 30 seconds; however, on return visits you will only be required to provide your name to the secretary and the system will recognize you.

The safety of our students and staff is a top priority in Jemez Valley Public Schools. This new process simply enhances their safety and security by limiting access to those who pose a potential threat.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child's building principal.
