Hello Fellow Track Athletes and Parents,

 

We wanted to provide a bit of information regarding the situation that occurred at practice yesterday. We had some vandalism occur during practice, and as a result, the coaches are in the process of investigating the issue.

 

The coaching staff will be holding a meeting today after school in order to find solutions to resolve the situation. We are hoping to find solutions to ensure that all students are being respectful, responsible, and safe while they are under our supervision. 

 

The meet has been cancelled for the day, and we will post more information as we are able.

 

Your athlete should be prepared to participate in track photos on Monday afternoon (Apr 29th), at which time we will also hold a team meeting in order to set our expectations moving forward.

 

Please email any of us with any more questions,

Leslie Johnston

Recently the neighborhood surrounding Herman has experienced break-ins, robbery and vandalism over the weekend and late at night.  San Jose PD and our District office are aware of the events in our area but none of these crimes pertain to our students or school. Herman students and staff have NOT been a part of the events that have taken place.  The events have taken place after hours or on weekends and never impacted our campus safety.  In the event that something happened during school hours or to our students, we would follow our safety protocol and notify our community directly. Thank you.

Internet and Social Media Awareness

The internet is a growing part of our lives, and students are being exposed to a wide range of content as they work and play online.  As a school we are continuing to educate students about the risks posed by irresponsible use of the internet.  We encourage every parent to be a part of proactive efforts to help our youth use their social media accounts in a safe and responsible way.  Students also play an important role in alerting their parents and school administrators to any suspicious online behavior that they witness.  Here are a few tips for students and parents to keep in mind as they spend time online.

Students

  • Don’t make irresponsible, frightening or threatening posts on your online accounts as they will likely result in serious legal and school disciplinary action.
  • NEVER forward or re-post an inappropriate or threatening post or message that you see or receive online. Instead, report that post and/or message to an adult and/or school staff member immediately.
  • Encourage your friends to be responsible internet and social media users.

Parents

  • Be familiar with your child’s online activity, including all social media accounts. Don’t be afraid to “follow” or “friend” your kids on their personal social media channels.
  • Talk to your kids regularly about their use of the internet and social media, and create a safe environment for your children to report internet activity or online posts/messages that make them uncomfortable.
  • Be aware of the consequences (legal and school-based) of inappropriate use of the internet, including forwarding or re-posting of inappropriate or threatening content, to your child and your family.
  • Report inappropriate or threatening online content immediately to law enforcement or school staff.

Parents – Please be respectful of traffic and signs when dropping off and picking up students.  There are specific lanes in the front of school drive-through area for dropping off/picking up, passing and for making left and right turns upon exiting.  We also ask that students not be dropped off in the middle of the street, as this is a safety issue.  Thank you, we appreciate your assistance in making this a safe area for our students.
