NEW SKATEBOARD POLICY
As you know, safety at Masuda has been, and continues to be, our number one concern for our Monarchs. Since the school year began, we’ve had three serious student skateboarding accidents on the way to/from school. The most recent of these accidents put a student in the hospital, bleeding from the head. These incidents, in addition to a conversation with our District Office Administration, led us to research and review our district's policy on skateboarding on campus AND as a means of transport to/from school.
The FVSD Board Policy 5142.3 is as follows:
In an effort to prevent injury to people and property, it is the policy of the board of Trustees to prohibit the use of skateboards, rollerblades/rollerskates and scooters on district property. Skateboards, rollerblades/rollerskates and scooters are likewise not to be used as a mode of transportation to and from school.
While we had been previously unaware of the entirety of this policy, effective immediately, Masuda will comply with the policy and skateboards will no longer be allowed at school or on the way to/from Masuda. This includes the strip mall/parking lot adjacent to Masuda, which has previously been a popular “hangout” for our skateboarders before and after school.
Skateboards, if seen on campus or surrounding areas on the way to/from school, will be confiscated by staff and held in the front office pending a parent pick-up. Please know that our intent here is solely in our students’ best interest and to keep our Monarchs healthy and safe. In no way is this decision/enforcement of policy intended to be punitive in nature, and it is our sincere hope that our students will not feel that to be so.
Please help us to ensure our students safety and well-being. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.
