Ride the Bus to School! 

JVPS Transportation -

Every Student Rider Counts


Jemez Valley Public Schools, parents/guardians, and students must make every effort to increase our student ridership to improve student educational outcome and fund our Transportation Department. Student use of the District’s free school bus transportation has benefits such as a decrease in tardiness and absenteeism of students, safety of students in route to school, improvement of traffic conditions, cleaner communities by decreasing carbon emissions, and maintaining the availability of free school bus transportation within the Jemez Valley Public School District.

When too few students ride the bus to and from school it impacts the amount of funding received from the State. This year the Public Education Department has specified two days (80th and 120th day of school) within this academic calendar year where the number of student bus riders will be counted in order to allocate funding for 2018-2019. It is imperative that all students ride the bus to and from school on these dates:

December 4, 2017 – 80th Day Reporting Period
February 14, 2018 – 120th Day Reporting Period


Join us in supporting our Transportation Department, please make sure your student rides the bus to and from school.

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.
