  • "Wreck It All" Letra in Espanol  Contrato de conduccion nde padres y adolecentes

     

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

     

    Did you know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States? 

     

    We all talk to our teens about the dangers of drunk driving and the importance of wearing seat belts.  But there is another traffic safety issue we must make our children aware of so they can stay safe behind the wheel: distracted driving.

     

    In 2014, 3,179 people were killed and an estimated 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes.  Sadly, our youngest and most inexperienced drivers are often the most at risk. 

     

    Today I’m writing to ask you to sit down and discuss this important issue with your teens and have them sign the attached Parent-Teen Driving Contract.  It’s a conversation that could save their life!

     

    Distracted driving comes in many forms.  It can include electronic distractions, like navigation systems and cell phones, or more conventional distractions, like interacting with passengers and eating.  

     

    Unfortunately, texting is the most dangerous of all distractions because it involves manual, visual and cognitive distraction simultaneously. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds.  At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field blindfolded.

     

    Student safety is our No. 1 priority at Buena Vista High School.  Our Leadership team, in partnership with the Allstate Teen to Teen Safe Driving Campaign, Friday Night Live, The Safety Center, and Casey’s Pledge is planning a series of activities to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. However, we need the support of parents and family members to supplement this effort.

     

    So, I’m asking you to join with me and encourage your teen to pay attention to the road at all times.  Remind them that “One Text or Call Could Wreck It All.”

     

    If you need any additional information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me or my staff.

     

    Sincerely,

     

     

     

    Rigoberto Vasquez

    Principal

  • August 2016

     

                Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. We look forward to helping our students achieve their goals whether it is graduating with a high school diploma from Buena Vista, or returning to their home high school to graduate with their class.

                I urge you to contact us if you wish to get involved by serving in our School Site Council (SSC) and or our School Advisory Committee (SAC). At the very least, please plan on attending our Open House on Wednesday, September 14th from 6 to 7:30 PM. It is an opportunity to meet our staff and meet with your student’s teachers. It takes a group effort to help all of our students. Our parents are most important to help support our students to reach their goals.

                Our website will always be “under construction” but, it will not deter you from finding out about our school or being able to contact us. Thank you for visiting our website whether you are a parent or guardian of one of our students or a visitor looking to find out about us.

     

     

    Mr. Rigoberto Vasquez, Principal

  • District Epinephrine Auto Injection Policy
    Comments (-1)
  • Current law (SB 1266; BP/AR 5141.21) now requires schools to provide emergency epinephrine for individuals who may be experiencing anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction which can occur after expose to an allergen, an insect sting or even (rare) after exercise. 

    Without immediate administration of epinephrine and summoning Emergency Medical Services (911), death could occur. Certain individuals may experience anaphylaxis that have no known previous history an allergy and therefore, may not have their own prescription. A school staff member will administer this emergency injection to any student believed to be suffering from anaphylaxis and activate Emergency Management Services (911). Parent will be notified of the emergency and action taken.

     

    IF YOU DO NOT WANT your child to receive the emergency epinephrine injection, please NOTIFY THE SCHOOL IN WRITING.

     La ley actual (SB 1266; BP/AR 5141.21) requiere que las escuelas proporcionen epinefrina (epinephrine) para individuales que sufran de un ataque de anafilaxia. Anafilaxia es una reacción alérgica grave que ocurre después de ser expuestos a una reacción alérgica debida a una picadura de insecto o después del ejercicio (en raros casos). Sin la administración inmediata de la epinefrina y de servicios médicos de emergencia (911), puede provocar la muerte.

     Ciertos individuales pueden sufrir un ataque de anafilaxia sin tener previos ataques de alergia, por lo cual no tengan una propia receta del doctor. Un personal de la escuela administrara la inyección de emergencia a cualquier estudiante que crea que esté sufriendo de un ataque de anafilaxia y comenzara los servicios médicos de emergencia (911). Los padres serán notificados de la emergencia y de la acción tomada por la escuela.

    SI NO QUIERE que su hijo/a reciba está inyección de emergencia, por favor NOTIFIQUE SU ESCUELA en escrito.
