ANNOUNCEMENTS

Trustees honor Cal Hills' students who participated in Relay for Life April 28-29

Superintendent Cheryl Jordan and the Board of Education recognized Cal Hills' students who participated in Relay for Life April 28-29 in Santa Clara. Student Kalmintas Kupciunas accepted the certificates on his teammates behalf. He was pictured alongside teacher Sridaya Mandyam-Komar and Assistant Principal Karisa Scottt in addition to teachers Tabitha Kappeler-Hurley and Dr. Kimi Schmidt, who were able to be present through a remote videoconference teacher.


"What was really exciting about this Relay for Life is that our Cal Hills kids are seen as leaders," Jordan said.


The "Cal-Hills Mustangs" group raised $4,397.73 to date - with a goal of $4,000 - for the 24 hour walking event that raises money and awareness about cancer prevention, research, and services through the American Cancer Society.

Dear MUSD Family and Community,


This morning, I awoke to the sad news about the tragedy at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Our hearts go out to the community affected by this tragedy, and all those affected by school violence. Although it happened in Texas, the thought that this could occur at any school weighs heavily on our minds.


As your Superintendent, I want to emphasize that student safety is paramount to the work we do each and every day. We certainly hope that our planning is never put to use, but to help ensure campus safety and security, every year we evaluate and update our District Emergency Preparedness Plan. In addition, drills are practiced each year to ensure everyone is aware of his/her roles and duties in establishing the safety of our students and staff. Our collaboration with the Milpitas Police Department also greatly enhances our ability to provide safe learning environments.


During an emergency, we ask that you remember to look for accurate information from the district. We will deliver messages over our Facebook, website, email, text, and phone calls. Which is why you have a role too: Please make sure your school secretary has the best phone number and email address to reach you. These two simple pieces of information can be crucial in the case of an emergency.


As difficult as it may be to explain the tragedy to your child, rest assured that we will provide all of our students the space and support necessary to discuss this tragedy if they feel they need to do so. To support you at home in talking with your children should they have questions about what they may see in the media, I encourage you to visit our MUSD Family and Community webpage where you will find resource links on helping children to talk about violence in the news. If you feel you need support, please contact your principal.


It is essential that we continue to support our students by being communicative so they know they can go to any adult at school, in our police department, and at at home for help. By working together, we can ensure that our schools are safe places for our students to gather, learn, and grow.


Sincerely,

Cheryl Jordan
