Supe's On: Welcome back, Lynx!

By: 
Dr. Jarod Larson, BVSD superintendent
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year - We are fired up to have our Lynx back in the classroom! 
The Brandon Valley School District continues to utilize our district-wide character program, “The Lynx Way”, to promote positive student behaviors and instill the fundamental traits we want in all students. Creating consistency and common language throughout our schools supports positive behavior intervention systems and easier transitions between school buildings. We encourage all parents, guardians, and patrons to utilize the common language and engage with our kids on the importance of being respectful, responsible, safe, kind, and an active learner.
With students back at school, there is a tremendous increase in pedestrian, bicycle, school bus, and vehicle traffic within our communities. Further, school zones are high traffic areas, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. For our children’s safety please slow down, take your time, and abide all traffic laws and drop-off signage. It is critical that motorists are attentive and exercise extreme caution when in school zones. In addition, speaking with your child about pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle safety rules is an important component to student safety.  
If your child is riding the school bus, please talk with them about bus riding etiquette and appropriate behavior.  When the bus approaches the bus stop, stay back and wait for the bus to come to a complete stop. Once onboard, students are to remain seated at all times and conduct themselves in an orderly fashion. Appropriate behavior on the bus is critical to student safety. 
Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in helping keep our kids safe. Together, we can promote our children’s safety.
Go Lynx!
