IMPORTANT CHANGES TO CALIFORNIA'S CHILD SAFETY SEAT LAWS!
After January 1, 2012 children will be required to remain in their car seats or boosters until they reach the age of 8 years old. After January 1, 2012, non-compliance will result in a fine of nearly $500.00 and a point on your driver’s record.
Four Key Safety Points
1. Restrain your child on every trip, every time!
2. Keep your child in the back seat!
3. Use the best safety restraint for your child’s size.
4. Use the child safety seat and belts correctly.
5-Step Test….Can your child…
1. sit with their back flat up against the vehicle seat
2. while their knees are bent naturally over the seat cushion edge
3. with the lap belt across their hip or thigh bones
4. and the shoulder belt across their shoulder (not crossing over their face or under their arm or behind their back)
5. and, can they stay seated in that position the entire trip?
If your child is over 8 years old but cannot achieve all 5 steps listed above, they need to remain in a booster seat!
For more information regarding these changes, please contact the Danville or San Ramon Police Department.
- Monitor your speed (the school zone is 25mph)
- No Cell Phones while driving (this is the law!)
- Please keep the cross walks accessible to pedestrians do not block them with your car as you wait in the queue
- Be respectful of our neighbors, do not park in, or block driveways or sidewalks with your car.
- Do not park in front of fire hydrants
- Neighborhood streets are narrow, please park close to the edge of the street so you do not impede the flow of traffic.
- Do not park in the red zones anywhere on campus
- If you are using the loading zone, children need to be able to enter and exit the car independently- adults should not be getting out of the car to assist children (please park and assist if needed, this can really bog down the drive through)
- Loading Zones are white, please do not leave cars in the white zone, even for a minute
- Allow for busses to pass when you are in the loading zone
- Students will not be allowed to leave campus unless they are walking home. Picking students up from the sidewalk will not be allowed
SIX STEPS TO FOLLOW IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A DISASTER AT HOME
A FRIENDLY REMINDER FROM YOUR SCHOOL NURSE:
A NOTE FROM THE SRVUSD HEALTH EDUCATORS
- A fever is defined as an oral temperature of 100 degrees or an axillary (armpit) temperature of 99 degrees. A fever is lowest in the morning hours, begins to increase in the afternoon, and is at its highest in the evening. When a child begins to recover, the temperature could be normal in the morning, but may still be present in the afternoon.
- The presence of other symptoms warrants keeping your child home an additional day. These include: coughing, nasal congestion, low energy level, vomiting, diarrhea or stomachache.
- Handwashing- Use soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
- Cover your mouth and nose with tissues (or into the crook of your elbow) when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Avoid sharing drinks, water bottles, silverware, and pencils.
- If you are sick, stay home!
