At ASJUSD, we are distressed by the current violence against students and staff that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and the learning community of the high school. Schools are meant to be safe havens for students and staff.

Violent actions against students and staff at school often lead to uneasy feelings of safety, even when it is not occurring in our own school or community. Research tells us, after such acts of violence, students seek reassurance from adults (i.e., family members, teachers, etc.) to provide comfort. To assist with those conversations, we are providing the following link as a resource for parents and teachers to have conversations with students and children:

Our top priority is to maintain a safe learning environment for students and staff. ASJUSD continues to provide regular safety training for staff and students to develop and strengthen our responsive skills in the event of a violent crime. We have implemented annual internal training and attend trainings outside the District. Administrative staff is currently receiving up-to-date trainings necessary for our schools to quickly and proactively respond to an emergency.

Our District also participates in a program called “WeTip”, which was founded in 1972 as an anonymous crime reporting resource for citizens, including students, staff, and community members. This program provides us with a tool to aid law enforcement. This program warns law enforcement and the District about potential incidents before they happen.

Students often have information regarding incidents before they occur. We know that targeted school shootings rarely happen without some sort of warning signs. The U.S. Secret Service conducted the Safe School Initiative, a study of school shootings and other school-based attacks, finding that usually “at least one other person had some type of knowledge of the attacker’s plan.” Most of those individuals who had prior knowledge were peers of the perpetrators. This suggests that peers often know about potential threats to their safety and risky behaviors of their friends and classmates, and they often fail to alert authorities about their suspicions, which potentially could prevent the violence before it occurs.

We ask that you have conversations with your children and ask that when they “see something, please say something.” Research demonstrates 80% of violent incidents had warning signs. Please help us and do your part to continue to keep our students and staff safe and have a safe learning environment. We all have a responsibility to help keep everyone in our community safe.

Please keep the families and community affected by the recent school shooting in your thoughts and prayers.

Aquí en ASJUSD estamos consternados por los eventos actuales de violencia en contra de estudiantes y personal que sucedió en la escuela preparatoria de Marjory Stoneman Douglas en Parkland, Florida. Nuestras oraciones están con las familias y la comunidad afectada. Escuelas son hechas para mantener un ambiente de seguridad para estudiantes y personal.

Acciones violentas en contra de estudiantes y personal de escuelas muchas veces dan sentimientos de inquietud aunque estas acciones no están ocurriendo en nuestra comunidad. Resultados de estudios  nos dicen que después de acciones como estas de violencia, estudiantes buscan más consuelo de los adultos (como familiares, maestros etc.) para consolarse. Para asistir con estas necesidades, estamos proporcionando esta vincula que es un recurso para padres y maestros para tener conversaciones con los estudiantes:

(Hablando con niños de la violencia: Consejos para padres y maestros)


Nuestra prioridad en mantener un ambiente de enseñanza de seguridad para nuestros estudiantes y personal. ASJUSD continúa en proveer entrenamiento de seguridad regularmente para estudiantes y personal para desarrollar y fortalecer las habilidades de responder en caso de un crimen violento. Hemos implementado entrenamiento anual internamente y entrenamientos fuera del distrito. Personal administrativo está actualmente recibiendo entrenamiento actualizado necesario para que nuestras escuelas respondan a una emergencia rápido y preventiva.

Nuestro distrito también participa en un programa llamado “WeTip”,  que fue fundado en 1972 como un modo de reportar crímenes anónimo un recurso para los ciudadanos, incluyendo estudiantes, personal, y miembros de la comunidad. Este programa nos ofrece con herramientas para ayudar a cuerpos policiales. Este programa advierte a los cuerpos policiales y a los distritos de incidentes potenciales antes de que ocurran.

Muchas veces los estudiantes obtienen la información de incidentes antes de que ocurran. Sabemos que balaceras en las escuelas no suceden raramente sin ningún tipo de señales de advertencia. El Servicio Secreto de los Estados Unidos conduce una iniciativa de Escuelas con Seguridad, los resultados de estudios de balaceras en las escuelas y otros crímenes violentos dicen que “al menos otra persona tuvo sabiduría de los planes del agresor.” Muchos de esos individuales con sabiduría son compañeros del agresor. Esto sugiere que compañeros muchas veces saben de la posibilidad de amenaza a su seguridad y comportamientos peligrosos de sus amigos y compañeros, y muchas veces fallan en avisar a las autoridades sobre sus sospechas, las cuales potencialmente pueden prevenir la violencia antes de que ocurra.

Les pedimos que ustedes tengan conversaciones con sus hijos y pídanles que cuando ellos “vean algo, por favor digan algo.”  Estudios demuestran que un 80% de acontecimientos han tenido señales previas.  Por favor ayúdenos a hacer su parte para mantener a nuestros estudiantes y personal seguros y que tengan un ambiente de enseñanza seguro. 

Por favor mantengan en sus oraciones  a las familias y victimas afectadas por los acontecimientos recientes.




Distrito de Aromas San Juan Unificado



The Aromas-San Juan Unified School District is accepting enrollment for a limited number of children for our preschool programs for the current school year.  As a California State Preschool Program, we educate children ages 3-5 who are income eligible.  All three year olds must turn three before September 1, 2016, and fully potty-trained, in order to qualify for the 2016-2017 school year.

We have two classrooms in San Juan Bautista:  Mi Escuelita Preschool (3 year olds), San Juan Elementary (Pre-kindergarten) and at Aromas Elementary (3 year olds and Pre-kindergarten). Our program is Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and coincides with the school district calendar.  We offer transportation services within the rural areas of the San Juan and Aromas communities.  We offer free breakfast and lunch to children.

It is a proven fact that children who have preschool experience are better prepared academically and socially for Kindergarten.  During the early years, the brain is developing creating a window of opportunity for children to learn and develop skills that will lay the foundation for a successful academic career.
