The Rosemead School District has an excellent team of employees who work together to ensure the safety of our students and staff as our #1 priority.
As the long-term Superintendent of the Rosemead School District, I am blessed to work with a wonderfully competent and caring group of professionals.
The Rosemead School District Administrators, Staff and Board of Trustees will continue to reassure you, our parents that your children - our students’ safety will continue to be our #1 priority. We continue to research, explore and implement new technologies to assist with campus security. In addition, our professional development days (pupil free days) have not only been used to increase teacher and staff development in curriculum and instructional strategies; these days have also been used to train staff in disaster and emergency preparedness including active shooter scenarios.
We are all here for the best interest of all "our" children. Next school year, we will continue to launch more staff training in the area of safety and security of our children and campuses.
Thank you to our staff for their countless hours of dedication and support to the Rosemead Community and families. Thank you to our parents and community who support our security measures on campuses with a single point of entry and the fingerprinting and security checks of volunteers.

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!
