Help Us Clean Up the Lost & Found
NEW LOST & FOUND POLICY
At the end of the day, every Friday, all clothes that have not been claimed and do not have a name on the tag will be donated that afternoon. We encourage you to make sure your child's name is on their jackets, sweatshirts and sweaters and to have them check for missing items on a daily basis.
Technology is an integral part of our students’ lives. We want to ensure that students know how use technology wisely and as an essential tool in a rapidly changing digital world. The District’s Technology Committee has selected three topics under digital citizenship that are important for our students to understand: cyberbullying, internet safety, and protecting their digital footprint. The District’s Technology Committee is in the process of selecting age appropriate lessons, by Common Sense Media, for each grade level that will be delivered by their classroom teacher. Students already learned about cyberbullying in
October and the other topics are scheduled for January and Spring. You can learn more about Common Sense Media and ways to discuss this topic with your family at https://www.commonsensemedia.org/.

Attendance Awareness Month
September is Attendance Awareness Month! Our goal this year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly.
Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.
This is why Moreland Schools are placing a high priority on attendance this year. Be on the lookout for exciting events going on in your school!

California Law - Emergency Epinephrine Administration
California Law SB 1266 amends California Education Code (CEC) 49414 and requires school districts to provide an emergency medication, epinephrine, for students suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering from anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a rapid, severe allergic response that requires immediate treatment. It can be triggered by foods, insect stings, medications, latex materials, exercise or unknown causes. Administering epinephrine during a medical emergency may help to ensure the student’s health and safety at school.
Moreland School District has a policy for standing orders to provide emergency treatment for anaphylaxis per CEC 49414. This emergency treatment is considered to be first aid and part of the requirement to give diligent care to the health of students (CEC 48400 and 49407). All students suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering, from a severe life-threatening allergic reaction will be administered emergency epinephrine in the form of an epinephrine auto-injector by a licensed school nurse or trained unlicensed school staff. If epinephrine is administered under the guidelines of CEC 49414, staff members are required to activate Emergency Medical Services 911. In the event that a school nurse or trained staff member is not immediately available, staff will call 911.
Please notify your child’s school office in writing if your child should not receive epinephrine due to a health condition.
See Unsafe Driving?? Report it!!
According to the SJPD - traffic complaints are addressed through the School and Neighborhood Enforcement program (SNE). Enforcement operations are based on the number of complaints the Traffic Enforcement Unit receives, and the danger the conditions create for the residents and the schools. A Traffic Enforcement Request Form may be submitted when a resident, school official or business owner feels there is a chronic traffic problem. This form may be completed and submitted online. Please be specific in regard to the day(s) of the week, times and locations the violations are occurring in order to fully address the issue.
Enforcement is rotated on a quarterly basis, and members of the community are encouraged to continue to lodge requests, so please spread the word! The link to the Traffic Enforcement Request Form is https://www.sjpd.org/_forms/TEU_Request_Form.asp
Please help us keep our students safe!! There have been too many close calls due to excessive speed and unsafe or distracted driving practices. Drive safely, and if you see a chronic issue, please request traffic enforcement.
