Important Student Safety Announcement

Good Morning Dan Mini Community, This is Mrs. Topacio with an important message regarding the incident from Friday afternoon.

The reports of an alleged kidnapping attempt were false.  Our student was not in danger.  However, this is an opportunity for all of us to reflect on our safety procedures. 

Students who walk, should go directly home and make no stops along the way.

Students who wait for a ride, should wait in the front of the school in the supervised area.  They are not permitted to walk off of the campus for any reason.

Kindergarten and 1st grade students will wait in their classroom or in the main office until they are picked up.  No K or 1st grade students will wait in the front of the school.

Again, the reports of attempted kidnapping were false.  The events did not occur.


Buenos días Comunidad de Dan Mini, esta es la señora Topacio con un mensaje importante sobre el incidente del viernes por la tarde.

Los informes de un posible intento de secuestro eran falsas. Nuestro estudiante no estaba en peligro. Sin embargo, esta es una oportunidad para todos nosotros para reflexionar sobre nuestros procedimientos de seguridad.

Los estudiantes que caminan, deben ir directamente a casa y no hacer paradas en el camino.

Los estudiantes que esperan para un paseo, deben esperar en el frente de la escuela en el área supervisada. No se les permite caminar fuera de la escuela por cualquier razón.

los estudiantes de Kindergarten y 1er grado esperarán en su salón de clases o en la oficina principal hasta que sean recogidos. los estudiantes de K o primero grado no puede esperarán en el frente de la escuela.

Otra vez, los reportas de secuestro eran falsas. No ocurrieron los hechos.

Staff Parking Lot

Parents are asked to park on the street when they come to school for any reason.  The staff parking lots at either end of the school are for employees of the school district only.  There are not enough spaces for all the employees so when parents use the spaces it causes a problem.  Please respect  the needs of the staff and do not park or use the parking lots for student drop off or pick up.

When Your Child Should Stay Home

Your child is too ill to go to school if he or she has any of these signs.

- Seems VERY tired and needs bed rest (this is common with flu symptoms)

- Has vomiting or diarrhea

- Has a cough that disrupts normal activity

- Has a temperature of 100 or above

- Has pain from earache, headache, sore throat or recent injury

- Has yellow or green drainage from eye(s)

- Breaks out in a rash

Fever: Your child should not go to school if his or her temperature is above 100F. When your child has been free of fever for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol), is feeling better, and has no other symptoms, he or she may return to school.

Contagious Disease: Your child should stay home from school if he or she has a contagious disease to keep it from spreading to others. A contagious disease is one that can be spread by close contact with a person or object. Examples are: chicken pox, the flue with vomiting or diarrhea, colds, "runny nose", strep throat, lice and scabies, impetigo and "pinkeye". A disease is most often contagious 24 hours before the child shows signs of illness. It is very hard to prevent the spread of some germs, especially in the classroom. Good hand washing will help prevent the spread of germs. If an antibiotic medicine is prescribed for your child, be sure he or she has taken the medicine for at least 24 hours before returning to school. Ask your doctor when you are not sure about keeping your child home.

VPD Traffic Tips

  • Never park, stop, or drop off children in a red zone or in the middle of the street
  • Never leave your vehicle unattended in a white zone.
  • Do not make U-turns or drive on the wrong side of the road to drop off or pick up children (especially on Lorenzo Dr.)
  • Use the buddy system.
  • Find alternative locations to drop off or pick up children (Elliot, Roleen, etc).
  • Do not pass a school bus when its red lights are flashing.
  • Obey all adult crossing guards and junior safety patrol officers.
  • Have patience! Ninety percent of the problem is the few minutes just before and after school starts. Plan on dropping children off a few minutes earlier to avoid the rush!
