SAFETY CONCERNS REMINDER
All drop-off and pick-up for ALL grades K – 8 should be happening in front of the D wing turnaround. There should never be a time when you leave your vehicle for even a moment in this driveway. If you find a need to come onto the campus, desire to participate in the morning walk with your child/children, talk with your child’s teacher, the office etc. please take the time to park your vehicle on the street. There is plenty of parking available. We do understand that you may not desire to have your Kindergarten student dropped off in front of the D wing and you prefer to walk them to class, please take the time it takes to park on the street and walk your child to their classroom or the playground for the morning walk! The turnaround in front of the office is intended for buses and daycare to drop off and pick up only.
When your child is riding a bike, scooter or skateboard to school please make sure that they have appropriate head protection…A HELMET!!!!! Secondly, if they are utilizing this means of transportation, they MUST have some way to secure this at the bike rack. It is unfortunate, but many bicycles, scooters, and skateboards have been stolen from the bike racks this school year. Many are simply dropped off and left there without being secured. We need to remind you that when your child chooses to ride their bicycle, etc. to school, Lichen and SJUSD is not responsible for loss or damage. If this has occurred, you will need to file a report with the Citrus Heights Police Department.

The Family Handbook also includes the school year calendar and a phone directory with school and department phone numbers.
District Policy on Use of Students in Photos and Video
Photos and video footage of students add significantly to the communication value of district and school publications, television productions, and web sites. It is the district's desire to share the achievements and recognition earned by students with the broader community. This effort can be aided by the use of photos or video footage showing students involved in the classroom and school-related activities.
Photos & Video
Unless notified in writing of an objection by a parent, legal guardian, or student of age 18, photographs and video footage of students and/or names may be posted in district-produced materials including printed publications, television productions, and websites.If parents do not wish photographs or videos of their student to be used in these materials, they should complete a Photo/Video Opt-Out form available at school offices or via the link below. Please be aware that opt-out requests are valid for the current school year and must be renewed at the start of the next school year.If an opt-out form is filed, district and school staff members will ALSO request news media not interview your student or film/photograph your student. While local news media typically honor such requests, the district does not have legal authority to prevent your student from talking with media or restricting who media outlets film or photograph. You are encouraged to have a discussion with your student about your wishes should members of the news media request to interview them.If photos or video of students or staff are going to be created, maintained or displayed by a third party where the District or school will not have direct control of the materials, then a written release form is required. Contact the Community Relations Office at (916) 979-8281 to discuss options.
