Carpool Lane Reminder

Parents this is just a reminder that you should not use your cell phones while picking up students in the carpool lanes.  Often parents are texting and/or talking on their cell phones while driving.  Not only does this impair their abilities to navigate the vehicle in the driving lane, it is also a grave safety issue for staff who are conducting traffic and for students who are passengers in those vehicles.  According to the CDC website on driving and cell phones,  In 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011, compared to 416,000 people injured in 2010.” (http://www.cdc.gov/Motorvehiclesafety/Distracted_Driving/index.html :retrieved April 1, 2014)

Please note this is a violation of district policy!  If you have any further concerns, or questions, please refer to the Rio Rancho Public Schools Website and review policy/procedures in the Sandia Vista Elementary School Parent and Student Handbook. It is on pg.5 under the heading Arrivals/Departures.

PARCC Testing at SVE

PARCC Field Testing Coming to Sandia Vista Elementary School

Several SVE classes have been asked to participate in PARCC field testing this year. According to the New Mexico Department of Education, the field tests are an opportunity for districts to “experience both the content of the new PARCC tests as well as the process for administering the computer-based assessments.” The tests will not count for or against students, teachers, or schools in any way and no student achievement data will be generated based on field test performance.  The PARCC assessments include two components: Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) and End-of-Year Assessment (EOY). These assessments are given in two separate testing windows.  Please click here for additional information from RRPS regarding PARCC or click here for the Parent Handout
