Driving Tips Around Schools: Keeping Children Safe
Parents and caregivers who drive on campus and in neighborhoods near school can plan an important role in enhancing safety near schools by following safe driving practices. At arrival and dismissal times, drivers are often in a hurry and distracted which can lead to unsafe conditions for students and others walking, bicycling and driving in the area.
Drivers should always:
- Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits, both in school zones and in neighborhoods surrounding the school.
- Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures for the safety of all children accessing the school.
- Avoid double parking or stopping on crosswalks to let children out of the car. Double parking will block visibility for other children and other motorists. Visibility is further reduced during the rain and fog seasons when condensation forms on car windows.
- Avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces youngsters to unnecessarily cross busy streets—often mid-block rather than at a crosswalk.
- Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus.
- Stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.
- Watch for children walking or bicycling (both on the road and the sidewalk) in areas near a school.
- Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops. Watch for children arriving late for the bus, who may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
- Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing up (out of a driveway or leaving a garage).

California School Parent Survey
Rio Vista parents,
The Central Unified School District is requesting that all parents complete the California School Parent Survey. You may complete the survey online at https://surveys.wested.org/csps/WM234FR with school code NQ36CW, or you can find the link with school code on our school webpage. If you do not have access to the internet you may go to your school office and ask for a paper copy. Your participation is very important, but voluntary. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.
Our 7th grade students will also be participating in a student version of the survey during the week of December 12th. Opt out forms were sent home with your student. If you do not want your child to participate please sign and have it returned to the school office. Students that have returned opt out forms will have an alternate activity during the time of the survey.
Thank you, and have a good day.Rio Vista Middle School

• STUDENTS MUST GET THEIR BUS PASS AT BREAK OR LUNCH!
Any student who needs to ride a different bus or exit the bus at a different stop on a specific day must have a bus pass. To get a bus pass, the front office must receive a note or phone call from the parent/guardian with the student's name, the bus stop information, contact number and reason. Due to the time constraint of bus departure's in the afternoon, we do not issue bus passes after school because students run the risk of missing the bus.Rio Vista Middle School
One of our Fantastic Four beliefs is to “Be there, Be ready!” This means to be in the seat before the bell rings – not running through the door as the bell rings. Timeliness is an important skill that our students need to develop to be college, community, and career ready.Rio Vista Middle School
