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:

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL ROSEMEAD SD SUMMER CAMP SESSION
Over 300 children gathered this summer at Savannah Elementary School for the Rosemead School District Summer Camp program. There were classes for students from preschool through seventh grade. During the morning hours, the children had hands on experiences in history, math, physical science, geology, and biology. In the afternoon they had the choice of choosing classes in painting, theater, dance, singing, arts and crafts, needlework, robotics, recorders, and woodworking. A once a week trip to the Rosemead Aquatic Center was a favorite activity. Field trips were taken to Jump n Jammin in Arcadia and the Queen Mary in Long Beach where the children enjoyed building little boats and racing them after a tour of the ship. The camp concluded with a program for the parents showcasing all of the things the students learned.
Also this summer the Rosemead School District offered its first S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Camp. Over 40 fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh graders took classes in Engineering where they made catapults and water slides, Art where they were doing canvass painting, Young Detectives where they solved a crime using CSI techniques, and 3D printing where they made items to take home and as a group made a toy airplane. The evaluations of the program indicated that the students had a great time and complained there wasn’t enough time and many wanted the camp to last longer.
