Traffic & Safety Plan
Dear Venetucci Families,
On January 26, 2015, our school implemented a traffic and safety plan. Thank you for using the designated crosswalk and working with us to improve safety and efficiency of our back student drop-off/pick-up. In the back turnaround, Venetucci is implementing a “Kiss and Go” lane. Please pull all the way up and fully to the right, letting students out safely on the curb. “Kiss” and “Go” promptly so that others may use the drop-off as well. Do not leave your car unattended, temporarily parked, or get out of your vehicle in this area. To help the flow of traffic, please only make a right turn out of the driveway. At dismissal, please follow the same expectations: one lane of traffic, pulling all the way up and fully to the right, having students enter vehicles from the curb. Again, do not leave your car unattended, temporarily parked, or get out of your vehicle in this area. To guarantee that our students and families are following safety expectations, we will have district security and staff in the turnaround area.
On February 2, 2015, changes to increase the safety and efficiency of our front turnaround will be implemented. On this date, only buses, daycare vans, and individuals with handicap needs will be permitted to drop-off and pick-up in this location. If you are dropping your child off/picking your child up, please plan to use the turnaround in the back of the building following the above procedures. This area will now be chained off during arrival and dismissal.
Please help us implement these new procedures so that we can provide a safer, better experience for all families before and after school. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 391-3355.

Venetucci Chain Reaction
As part of our TEAM Challenge goals through Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Rachel’s Challenge, we are working to promote and celebrate positive behavior that supports an atmosphere conducive to effective learning. At the elementary level, Rachel’s Challenge supports PBIS by teaching children at an early age that kindness and compassion is a way of life.
To support teaching these principles, students have been involved in various TEAM Challenge activities on our Early Release days. Accepting Rachel's challenge and starting a chain reaction of kindness at Venetucci has been our focus over the past few months. We would like to share with you the school-wide video we created as our Early Release activity on October 1st. The video shows the domino effect of simple acts of kindness making its way through Venetucci. We hope you enjoy it!

Student Internet Access Policy Change for 2015-16
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Widefield School District desires for your student to have an information rich education. We believe this requires all students to have access to the Internet at school. Our board policy regarding the Internet has changed to reflect this philosophy. Under the new Board Policy JS-Student Use of Internet Electronic Communication, we no longer require parent permission before we will let your student access the Internet at school on a school owned device. Instead, we expect that students will use the Internet unless you as the parent/gaurdian explicitly and annually submit the Annual Internet Opt-Out Form (See Board Policy JS-E) and return it to your student’s school.

Opt Out Form
Questions regarding this policy may be directed to me, Keith Mann, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling my office at (719) 391-3023.
