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.
Below please find urgent communication from Superintendent Dr. Enomoto-Perez:
Dear Rosemead School District Community,
The tragic events in Parkland, Florida were another reminder of the need for all schools to be vigilant and as prepared as possible for any disaster. This is a reminder that all of our schools have a single point of entry and all visitors must sign in at the front office or sign out their students.
You have likely seen that on March 14th, a 17-minute student walkout is being promoted nationwide in protest of school violence. In addition, April 20th is being reported as another date for a potential walkout. Potential student or staff participation in such events raises our concerns particularly with regard to student safety.
We are committed to ensuring that our young people have appropriate venues for expression and student's voice. Each principal is working with his/her staff to provide and practice classroom safety drills and procedures on March 14th. The District maintains a comprehensive safety plan, as well, at each school.
Walkout activities are not sanctioned by the District nor by our individual PK-8 schools, therefore:
Lastly, please stay vigilant about school safety. If anyone in or of our community “sees or hears something" unsafe or detects suspicious behavior, please "report such and say something” to school officials or law enforcement.
If you prefer, the District also has an Anonymous Tip Line on the District website (www.rosemead.k12.ca.us), also available through the Rosemead Mobile Application, to report any activity that you might be concerned about. All threats are taken seriously and our staff will complete follow-up actions promptly.
Thanking you in advance for your proactive partnership in safety.
Amy Enomoto-Perez, Ed.D
Dear Rosemead Community and Friends,
Congratulations Emma W. Shuey Elementary School for Receiving a Silver Medal during Science Olympiad
On February 24, 2018, 15 fourth through sixth-grade students from Emma W. Shuey Elementary School competed in the 32nd Annual Science Olympiad at Occidental College. Led by teachers Cami Case and Evonne Dotson, Shuey students earned a silver medal after competing in a number of different events. The events emphasized a wide variety of different skills and abilities. Students met once a week to prepare for the competition. Students built a car made out of pasta which had to hold a ping pong “meatball” and roll straight distances down a steep ramp. Other students studied earth science including reading weather maps. Students also studied food webs using owl pellets. Students built rubber band and tennis ball catapults and containers that would allow an egg to be dropped from a two-story building without breaking. Some events required students to problem solve on the spot. For example, in Mystery Architecture, students were given a bag of random objects such as cotton balls, toothpicks, gumdrops, paper cups and were required to build the tallest structure they could which would hold a tennis ball at the top in a set amount of time. We are very proud of the Shuey Science Olympiad team for their hard work and dedication to science!
Congratulations Savannah Elementary School for Receiving a Silver Medal during Science Olympiad
On February 24th, Savannah Elementary won silver medals at the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad competition at Occidental college (just five points shy of a gold medal win). A team of 15 young scientists and engineers in grades 4-6 scored an amazing 545 points competing against schools from all over Los Angeles County.
Building cars out of pasta, experimenting with pill bug dietary preferences, and designing a catapult to launch a tennis ball at a given target, our Science Olympians excelled at 20 different events. Please join Coach Jennifer Nakata and Principal Ruth Soto as we congratulate our phenomenal team on their success.

On behalf of Principal Cardenas, thank you so much for spending part of your extremely busy day to stop by and read to our student leaders. We really appreciate your partnership and commitment to student achievement. The students shared back with me and mentioned that the readers were “awesome”. Thank you again!
