New Raptor Visitor Screening for Davis Schools  

 

The Davis Joint Unified School District’s number one priority is the safety of students and staff. As a result the district is currently implementing a digital visitor and volunteer check in system.  When visitors or volunteers check-in they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the check-in system.

 

The system will scan the ID and instantly screen for registered sex offenders in all 50 states. The system can also screen for individuals with restraining orders, custody issues, suspended or expelled students, or for any custom alert.

 

If a potential threat is identified the person at the front desk will contact an administrator.  Every match has to be manually confirmed to avoid false positives, and principals will have ultimate say over who is allowed to enter their campuses.  If a match is confirmed the system sends instant alerts to designated officials, including administrators and law enforcement, via email and text messaging.

 

When a visitor is cleared the system prints a badge featuring the visitor's name, photo, date and time, and destination. 

 

We are confident that this system will help us keep our students and staff safer and it will allow us to know who is on our campuses if an emergency situation were to take place. We ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at our campuses.

 

Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

We All Belong: Safe and Welcoming Schools for All

Davis Schools Community Forum

Brunelle Theatre, Davis Senior High School

Monday, January 23, 6:30-8:00 pm

 

Over the last month, the Davis Joint Unified School District has communicated with parents, staff and the community our commitment to ensuring that school remains a safe place for all students and families, regardless of their immigration status, race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression.  In order to reaffirm our values, DJUSD is crafting a resolution for adoption at the Board of Education meeting scheduled for February 2.  In addition to the variety of ways we have been gathering input (community events, visiting school sites, and learning from your phone calls and emails as part of our usual process to maintain a positive school climate) we would like to invite you to attend a DJUSD-led community forum about safe schools to share your experience and perspectives.  To read recent communications from our Superintendent on this topic,  visit www.djusd.net and click on Superintendent Communication.

 

Spanish interpretation will be available at the event.

Mrs. Burau and her twin sister Teri both teach 3rd grade!


Mrs. Burau and her identical twin sister Teri are both 3rd grade teachers.  Teri teaches at Twin Rivers Unified and since they were not in school today, she decided to spend the day with her sister at Patwin.  We are lucky to have them both here today.

Character Education Theme for December

The December Character Education theme is Cooperative/Fair.  Please support our theme at home by talking to your child about how to be a team player, while playing by the rules.  Remind them to be considerate of others and to help resolve conflicts.

 

Here is a picture of what Patwin Kindergartener's talked about in their classroom our theme this month of Cooperative/Fair.

Dairy Mobile Classroom Assembly

This morning our students had an assembly learning about "Snickers" the cow who came to visit.  The Dairy Council provides assemblies that teach how milk and dairy foods are produced and how they contribute to healthy eating. Today our students learned about

  • The anatomy of a dairy cow 
  • How milk goes from a cow to their school/home 
  • The agricultural technology used on dairy farms 
  • The many different foods made from milk

 


 

What Is Mix It Up at Lunch Day?

A national campaign launched by Teaching Tolerance in 2002, Mix It Up at Lunch Day encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries. For more information please visit: http://www.tolerance.org/mix-it-up/what-is-mix

 

On Tuesday, October 25th, 1st-6th grade students participated in Mix It Up at Lunch Day here at Patwin. The students randomly selected colored wristbands to determine where they would sit in the MPR. Tables were colorfully decorated in the MPR so that students knew where to sit. Essentially if a student selected a red wristband he/she would then sit at the red table. There were conversation starters and “getting to know you” questions at each of the tables to spark conversation. Some students are hesitant at first to try Mix It Up at Lunch but for just a day, we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. The feedback that I have received so far has been positive and we believe the students enjoyed Mix It Up at Lunch!
