Safety is Everybody's BusinessA message from Dr. David Hansen...

"Hello, this is Riverside Unified School District Superintendent Dr. David Hansen. While this is an emotional time for our community and the nation, it is imperative to remind our students and families that RUSD has zero tolerance for direct or implied threats of violence to another student, an employee, or a school site.

In light of recent acts of violence that have occurred across our country, parents, we ask that you sit down with your children and remind them that any verbal statement, written message or social media post related to guns, bombs, weapons or any other acts of violence in the schools, even in an attempt at humor, will be investigated thoroughly by police, and may subject the student to arrest and or expulsion.

Please also remind them that if they see, hear or read something that may be a sign of danger, including things seen on social media, they should immediately share the information with their school Principal, Counselor or a trusted adult at school.

RUSD does not condone any behavior that disrupts the safe educational environment that we work so hard to ensure for our students, teachers and staff.

Your child’s safety is our highest priority, so please help us by speaking with your children about responsible decision making.  In addition to this message, all students and staff will be reviewing a video at school this week that outlines all of this information in further detail.

Thank you for your strong partnership in our pursuit of making our schools as safe as possible.
