Dear Parents and Staff,

 

I wanted to make you aware of an issue that continues to spread throughout social media outlets and the news.  The "creepy clown" or "clowning" phenomenon has been an issue in other parts of the country and we're beginning to hear stories of concerns in other Bay Area locations and in Southern California.  "Clowning" includes dressing up as a scary clown and frightening or harassing people.  The definition is very vague and can include a wide range of threats from minor to serious.  

 

We were informed that last night a photo of a clown in front of one of our schools was posted to Instagram.  Milpitas police investigated and found three youths with a clown costume, the police talked with their parents about the incident.  Should we be informed of any other incidents, we will work with Milpitas police to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and community.  Please do not hesitate to report any threats to the MPD and your school principal.

 

It is unfortunate that social media is being used to promote disruptive behavior.  As related by other school districts, there have been students spreading this rumor by posting Instagram and Facebook comments that have been perceived as threatening.  Let's work together to remind our Milpitas youth that making a social media post that threatens a school and/or any student is considered a serious offense.

 

We appreciate our community for being vigilant and helping our district as we work together to be informed and mindful of events that may be topics of discussion for our children.

 

Thank you for being our partners in building a strong MUSD Family and community in which WE can all feel valued and safe.

 

Sincerely,

 

Cheryl Jordan

Interim Superintendent

28 de septiembre de 2016.

 

Queridos padres de familia y/o tutores:

 

Esta tarde fuimos informados por un padre de familia que ayer en la tarde, 26 de septiembre de 2016, dos jóvenes estudiantes de la secundaria caminaban hacia casa por la calle Escuela Parkway después de práctica, se acercó un hombre y un muchacho joven el cual conducía un coche de 4 puertas. Los estudiantes afirmaron que el conductor parecía ser de unos 20 años y el niño era rubio y de unos 10 años de edad. El hombre se acerco a los muchachos, y el niño que iba en el coche les preguntó si querían un raide/aventón. Los estudiantes se negaron y reportaron el incidente a sus padres los cuales informaron a la policía. Se hizo un reporte al Departamento de Policía de Milpitas, y como resultado, habrá mayor presencia policial en nuestras escuelas. Como siempre nuestros directores y personal escolar estarán visibles después de la escuela para estar al pendiente cuando los estudiantes salen de la escuela. Queremos asegurarle que lo mantendremos al tanto de cualquier  información nueva. Por favor, recuerde a sus hijos acerca de las medidas de seguridad en su camino hacia y desde la escuela. Todos los niños en edad escolar deben conocer sus direcciones, números de teléfono y nombres de sus padres / tutores para que puedan proporcionar información a una persona que pueda ofrecer ayuda. Póngase de acuerdo para escoger una casa de seguridad en su vecindario para que su hijo vaya si es necesario. A continuación se presentan algunas medidas de seguridad para compartir y practique estas medidas con sus hijos:

 

1. Siempre anda con uno o más amigos si caminas o llegas en bicicleta a la escuela;

2. Mantén siempre informados a tus padres/tutores dónde estas;  

3. Cuando se les acerque un desconocido que quiere que vayas con él/ella, corran en dirección opuesta, ve a un lugar seguro o con un adulto, y grita, "¡Necesito ayuda!"

4. Aléjate del coche que se detiene junto a ti, si ni conoces al conductor;

5. Si un extraño te dice que hay una emergencia, un miembro de la familia está herido, o una mascota ha estado en un accidente, siempre consulta con un padre o un adulto que sabe, y NO te vayas con el desconocido;

6. A veces los desconocidos te  querrán dar dinero o te pedirán ayuda para encontrar un perro perdido para convencerte que vayas con el/ella, NO VAYAS!;

7. Nunca te vayas con ningún extraño o nunca te subas a ningún coche aunque haya un niño pequeño con él/ella;

8. Toma una fotografía de las placas del vehículo o trata de recordar el número junto con un amigo que este contigo;

9. Por favor aconseje a su hijo que informe a un adulto inmediatamente de cualquier persona sospechosa, y llame a la Policía de Milpitas (408-586-2400) o al 911.

 

Les aseguro que hemos tomado todas las medidas necesarias para garantizar la seguridad de los estudiantes en la escuela. Por favor, siéntase libre de ponerse en contacto con el director de la escuela de  -Administración _ con cualquier pregunta al numero  phone # o el Departamento de Policía de Milpitas al 408-586-2400.  

 

Sinceramente,

 

Raquel Kusunoki, Principal

Parwinder Johal, Assistant Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

A parent informed us today that yesterday afternoon, September 27, 2016, two male middle school students were walking home on Escuela Parkway after practice and were approached by a man and a young boy driving a 4-door car. The students stated that the driver appeared to be in his 20’s and the young boy was blond and about 10 years old.  The man stopped near the boys, and the young boy in the car asked them if they would like a ride.  The students declined and reported the incident to their parents who informed the police.  A report was filed with the Milpitas Police Department, and as a result, there will be an increased police presence around our schools. As always our administrators and staff will be visible after school watching over kids as they leave the school grounds. We will be sure to keep you abreast of any new information.

 

Please remind your children of safety precautions on their way to and from school.  All school age children should know their addresses, phone numbers, and parents’/guardians’ names so that they can provide the information to a person who can offer help.  Establish safe houses in your neighborhood for your child to go to if needed.

 

Following are some safety precautions to share and role-play with your children:

  1. Always walk or bike to school with one or more friends;
  2. Always keep parents/guardians informed of where you are;
  3. When approached by a stranger who wants you to go with him/her, run in the opposite direction, go to a safe place or adult, and yell, “I need Help!”
  4. Move away from a car that pulls up beside you when you don’t know the driver;
  5. If a stranger tells you that there is an emergency, a family member is hurt, or a pet has been in an accident, always check with a parent or an adult you know, and do not go with the stranger;
  6. Sometimes strangers will ask you to take money or to help them find a lost dog to get you to go with them, do not go;
  7. Do not get in to a car or go with a stranger even if s/he has a young child with him;
  8. Take a picture of the license plate or remember the number with a friend who is with you;
  9. Please encourage your child to inform an adult immediately of any suspicious person, and call the Milpitas Police (408-586-2400) or 911 .

I assure you that we have taken all measures to ensure student safety while at school.  Please feel free to contact the Weller Administration with any questions at 408-635-2876 (option "0") or the Milpitas Police Department at 408-586-2400.

 

Sincerely,

 

Raquel Kusunoki, Principal

Parwinder Johal, Assistant Principal
