Notice to Parents: Revision of School Transportation Safety Protocols

posted Dec 27, 2016, 10:16 AM by Doreen Salera

N O T I C E

 

Please review carefully the following announcement from the Superintendent of Schools, the KRSB Transportation Committee, and the Management of STA Student Transportation

After a recent analysis of district bus accident protocols, the Transportation Committee has determined that the following revisions will enhance safety and communication during and after an accident involving school buses in the district.  Those changes will take effect after January 3rd, 2017.

1.    In the event of an accident involving one of the KRSD buses, and after Police and EMT Personnel have cleared the scene, all students in grades K-12 will be brought to Kearsarge Regional Middle School which will serve as the district accident staging location.

2.    Preschool students will be brought to James House Preschool located at SAU 65 campus in New London.

3.    Once safely at Kearsarge Middle School, parents who wish to sign out their students may do so with the assistance of KRMS attendance personnel.  All other students will be transported from there to their respective schools (at the beginning of the day), or home (at the end of the day).

4.    STA Student Transportation staff will continue to provide parents of affected students with timely and pertinent information about the nature of the accident.  STA will also make available alternative transportation for all students along the specific bus route.

5.    We recommend that parents do not attempt to meet their child(ren) at the scene of an accident.  Doing so creates potential concerns for emergency personnel assisting the situation and impacts the safety of all parties, including the children.

6.    In case of a reported accident, we ask that parents contact only STA Transportation (603-938-6464), Kearsarge Regional Middle School (603-927-2100), or the SAU 65 Office (603-526-2051) with questions or concerns. 

 

We are confident that the above changes will support the important work of local emergency services as well as streamline communication between parents, the district, and all agencies involved in the rare cases of school bus accidents.

District Facebook Page

posted Feb 1, 2016, 4:02 AM by Laurie Prewandowski   [ updated Feb 1, 2016, 4:04 AM ]

The Kearsarge Regional School District is pleased to announce the introduction of a Kearsarge Facebook page as a tool to facilitate and improve two-way communication with our parents and our community. The Kearsarge Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Kearsarge-Regional-School-District-SAU-65-1012504595466304/?fref=ts   as well as from a link on our district homepage.


As we begin our move toward the use of social media as a communications tool, the site will be managed and all comments to the Kearsarge Facebook page will be "moderated" by our social media consultant. In order to establish a practice that allows for maintaining the safety and privacy of our students, we are limiting public input at this time to comments and text but not images. Teachers will have the opportunity to post pictures that capture student activities, special guests, and everyday classroom life, only after ensuring that the proper authorization has been given by parents/guardians.


In view of this new communication tool that allows student images to be posted on the Kearsarge Facebook page, parents who wish to change their video-media release form are asked to call the school to document this change. Although we will use the student images on our new Facebook page, we will continue to adhere to our practice of not naming the students in the images.


On February 3, 2016, the Kearsarge Facebook page will be “live.” This new communication tool will provide an avenue for two-way communication with our families and our community. It will also provide timely information that will allow the Kearsarge community to share in the excitement of all the wonderful things that happen in our district.


During the next several months, contributions to the site will be monitored and the need for restrictions will be evaluated. Your feedback regarding postings, shared news, and your overall impression of the site will be very important to us.  Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions via Facebook or at info@kearsarge.org.  


Sincerely,

           The Kearsarge Communications Committee:

Winfried Feneberg
