Suspension and redesign of MVSA Parent Safety Patrol

Important changes to the MVSA Parent Safety Patrol Program

The safety of students crossing streets near our school is everyone’s first concern. FUSD, in conjunction with the Fremont Police, is developing a new, improved volunteer crossing guard program. The program will be launched in May, after which Mission Valley will redesign our own parent volunteer program to be in compliance. The new program will be safer for both students and volunteers. In addition, volunteer positions may be easier with a shorter time commitment. The tentative plan is to launch the new program next fall. We hope you will volunteer!

Because of these changes, we have suspended our current volunteer Safety Patrol program for the remainder of the year, effective immediately. We wish to thank the many wonderful parents who volunteered for the old program! We hope to see you again next year in the new program. Our outstanding student crossing guards will remain on duty from 8:10 to 8:20.

With these changes, please consider these options to ensure the safety of your children:

1. Have your child arrive at school before 8:20 so they can cross with the student crossing guards.
2. Escort your child across the street when no crossing guards are present.
3. Use the drive through to avoid crosswalks.

Thank you.
