New Policy – Campus Safety

Happy New Year!                                  1/1/2013
Dear parents:

First, I’d like to welcome you to the new year. As this year ends, I have ample gratitude. Without your support, Chiao Hsin would not be what it is today. Seeing our children grow and learn, how can we not feel delighted?

This past year, Chiao Hsin participated in several on and off-campus activities whether they be in our community, or at regional SCCCS competitions. All teachers, faculty, and students were able to take away not only awards, but memories. Your encouragement is the driving force behind our students’ success—thank you, dear parents!

Looking ahead at 2013, we have a few new regulations. At the start of this term, to ensure the security of our school, once students are dropped off by the bus, the front gate will be locked. It will remain locked until 6:00 PM. Should you wish to pick up your child early, please call and notify the office beforehand, and refrain from walking into classrooms or Emerson Hall, as this will no longer be permitted. Our teachers will use walkie-talkies to let your student know you are here. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in testing and enforcing this new rule. Once school starts, we will also be requiring parents to sign documents stating their understanding of this new regulation.

Aside from campus safety, we will be modifying the system with which we pick up your students from their elementary schools. Buses/cars will depart from respective schools at the times stated on the timetable. In the past, we have had students take advantage of having multiple trips; for example, we pick up students from Brightwood Elementary schools at three different times. Knowing this, students often disregard their assigned bus to wait for their friends and whatnot, to take a later bus. This throws off the entire schedule and requires our teachers to makes special trips, so in order to eliminate this issue, we are strictly enforcing the timetable. You will also see this on the document to sign. Again, thank you for your cooperation.

Additionally, if you are picking your student up from his or her elementary school, please let the office know, to avoid confusion.  Alhambra & Garvey school districts start school on 01/07/2013; Durham buses will pick students up promptly. Montebello school district resumes instruction on 01/14/2013 and will have transportation arranged as well—so please rest easy!

Once the 2013 spring term begins, changes will be made in our curriculums. Reports will be made available to parents on 01/07.

Thank you.
