COMMUNITY: BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY TIPS – Safety Zone Ahead, by California Highway Patrol Southern Division
The Los Angeles Unified School District is the second largest district in the nation and this week, over 600,000 students will be walking, biking or taking the bus to school. All of us share in the responsibility to ensure the safety of one another; however, when children are involved, there is a higher duty to be vigilant.
Here are some helpful reminders before you send your kids off to school:
At this time of year, it is important for drivers to remember the pertinent laws regarding school buses:
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) strives to provide the utmost protection to the most precious individuals in your life, your children. We hope these tips will help you to exercise great care and extreme caution when traveling within school zones. Slow down, be aware, and drive safe.

UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST MEET & GREET
On August 19, 2016, the University of the West held a Meet & Greet in order to discuss actively building partnerships between local school districts and the university. Representatives from Alhambra School District, Rosemead School District, and El Monte Union High School District were in attendance.
HISTORY OF RED RIBBON WEEK – REMEMBERING ENRIQUE CAMARENA
As we are reminded each October and shared on the website Drug Use Is Life Abuse (http://www.duila.org) Red Ribbon Week began after the kidnapping, torture and brutal murder of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena in 1985. Agent Camarena had been working undercover in Guadalajara, Mexico for over four years. His efforts led to a tip that resulted in the discovery of a multimillion dollar narcotics manufacturing operation in Chihuahua, Mexico. The successful eradication of this and other drug production operations angered leaders of several drug cartels who sought revenge. As a result, they murdered key informants and then, on February 7, 1985, they kidnapped Agent Camarena and his pilot Captain Alfredo Zavala-Avelar (taken separately on the same day). Representatives of the Mexican Federal Judicial Police (MFJP) presented a tip to DEA Agents that a raid of a suspect thought to have a connection to the kidnapping. Not long after, a passerby discovered the bodies of both Agent Camarena and Captain Zavala-Avelar by the side of the road not far from the raided ranch.
In Agent Camarena’s home town, Calexico, CA, the public outpouring of support turned in to an organized community response in which citizens dawned red ribbons. They became a voice for prevention in order to reduce the demand for illegal drugs and illegal use of legal drugs in America. The following year the California State PTA adopted the Red Ribbon Campaign. Then, in 1988, Red Ribbon Celebration was recognized nationally with President Ronald and First Lady Nancy Reagan serving as the Honorary Chairs.

I pledge allegiance to myself
And who I want to be.
I can make my dreams come true
If I believe in me.
I pledge to stay in school and learn
The things I need to know,
To make the world a better place
For kids like me to grow.
I promise to keep my dreams alive,
And be all that I can be.
I know I can, and that’s because,
I pledge to stay alcohol, tobacco, and drug free!
