Unexcused Absences

Unexcused Absences

NMUSD has updated the procedure for documenting unexcused absences. After 3 days, unexcused absences will be converted to “cuts” in our student information system. Students who have 10 cuts will be referred to our Student Attendance Review Board (SARB). Unless your child is ill or out for an excused family emergency, your child should be in class every day

 

Ausencias no justificadas

NMUSD actualizó el procedimiento de documentar las ausencias sin justificación. Después de 3 días , ausencias sin justificación se convertirán en día perdido (cut como se conoce en Inglés) en nuestro sistema de información. Aquellos alumnos que acumulen 10 ausencias recibirán una referencia a la Mesa Ejecutiva de Revisión de Asistencia Estudiantil (Conocida como SARB por sus siglas en Inglés). Al menos que su niño esté enfermo o fuera de la escuela por una emergencia familiar, su niño debe  estar en la escuela.

Chromebook Program

Adams 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students all participate in a 1:1 Chromebook
program each school year. This means every student will use a
Chromebook computer in the classroom and at home. Coding, Google Apps for
Education, and numerous other web applications will be used to provide
students with opportunities to demonstrate their learning while using
state-of-the-art technology tools. The Chromebook program at Adams is
another reason why Adams Elementary is a wonderful place for students to
learn!

 

ADAMS ELEMENTARY- A Safe Place to Learn

Student safety is the highest priority for Adams Elementary School. Aside from keeping students safe in a clean, organized, and secure environment, Adams is one of two pilot schools in N-MUSD to begin the OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). OBPP is a school wide approach to preventing and responding to bullying. Through weekly classroom lessons in all grades, kindergarten through sixth, students learn how to prevent bullying first and respond if they witness bullying behavior. OBPP is research-based and addresses both direct and indirect forms of bullying.

Adams has adopted the following Anti-Bullying Rules:

  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

The safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance at Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD). The District has plans and processes in place to respond to unfortunate and unplanned events and to communicate accurate and timely information with you.
 

All NMUSD schools have safety plans, which outline emergency procedures for natural and man-made disasters. Safety plans are regularly reviewed and updated in collaboration with emergency responders and local law enforcement, including school resource officers. School resource officers are local law enforcement officers from the City of Costa Mesa and Newport Beach police departments, who are on many of our school campuses to provide security and crime prevention services.
 

Schools regularly participate in safety drills, threat assessment, and emergency response trainings with students, local law enforcement and first responders. Safety drills prepare staff and students for a variety of potential situations. Some examples include earthquakes, fire and intruder/active shooter.
 

The safety drills include procedures for a lock down, shelter in place, drop/cover/hold, run, hide, act, and evacuation. Every school and District facility also has emergency supplies in multiple locations and various individuals responsible for ensuring that there are adequate and properly maintained supplies and equipment.

Examples of some of the essential items include:

  • First aid

  • Food and water

  • Flashlights, radio and batteries

  • Portable toilets

  • Blankets

For large scale events involving multiple schools or regional incidents, the District collaborates beyond local governments, law enforcement, first responders, and utilities. NMUSD follows California’s Standardized Emergency Management System and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Incident Management System. These systems include emergency management collaboration among county, state and federal agencies, and community organizations on a cohesive approach to emergency response.

 

Every situation is unique and may include distinctive response approaches and communication methods. Parents may expect communication via email, phone call, news postings on the District and school websites, social media postings, and mobile app alerts. The District also works closely with local media to disseminate information to keep parents and the community informed as best as possible, always keeping in mind that the safety of students and staff is the priority.

 

It is common knowledge that viral information disseminates quickly. One inaccurate text or social media post can trigger a full speed rumor mill and create unnecessary panic. The District has a responsibility to provide accurate and timely information and will do its best not to perpetuate misinformation. This is especially important during an emergency when the situation (and subsequent information) can change rapidly.

 

Depending on the emergency, the first communication that parents and community members can expect to receive is the basics. If these questions can be answered, communication may include: what happened, when it happened, what the district is doing about it and how to stay informed. Updates may include information regarding changes in dismissal times or transportation, the location of the parent re-unification area, incident updates, and other important information.

 

Tips for parents:

  • Do not go to the school or call the school during an emergency. School administration

    will be focused on keeping students and staff as safe as possible. In some instances, additional presence on campus also may impact law enforcement’s investigations and searches.

  • Contact your school and ask their staff to familiarize you with your school’s comprehensive school safety plan.

  • At the conclusion of an emergency, be sure to bring your identification to the re-unification area in order for your student to be released to you.

  • Be active in your child’s education: ask questions, get involved- join the PTA, school foundations, parent advisory councils, etc.

  • Stay connected - provide current contact information to your child’s school, check district and school website news feed, follow district and school social media accounts, and download the district mobile application.

Tips for students:

  • Take emergency drills seriously.

  • Follow teacher and site administrator instructions.

  • See something, say something. This is the best deterrent to potentially harmful

    situations.

For more information or questions regarding school emergency response, please contact your child’s school.
