School Safety

At the beginning of each school year and at periodic intervals throughout the year, safety instructions are given to all Sellers School students. Parents should also help their children learn the proper and safe way to travel to and from school. A route should be planned by the parents and reviewed with their children. This route should be used daily, with full regard to sidewalks, street crossing, bike lanes, parking lot safety and the property of others.

Sellers students can be dropped off and picked-up behind the district building, behind the school, or in front of the school observing all safety and vehicle codes. Crosswalks must be used when crossing the street. Pedestrians must obey all directions of the crossing guards. Please do not call your child(ren) from across Loraine and have them run across the street to meet you. This is a serious safety hazard and poses an unnecessary danger to students and parents.

Emergency Preparedness

Sellers School has an emergency preparedness plan which will be implemented in the event of any disaster. Monthly safety drills are conducted to comply with state law and district policies. Although we hope the plan will never have to be utilized, it is designed to ensure the welfare and safety of all pupils during school hours. The plan is reviewed annually and updated as needed.

Your child may be required to remain in the care of the school in the event of a major disaster until it is considered safe for the child to be released.Children will be released only to those designated on the school emergency card. Each classroom is equipped with a box containing emergency supplies, consisting of first aid supplies, blankets, water, and food. In addition, a disaster bin that securely contains our supplies, has been purchased through PTA and school district funds to better help us serve the needs of our students during a disaster. Every effort will be made to keep the children as safe and comfortable as possible while detained at school. In the event of a disaster, students will be released from the east playground area. Please report directly to the child's teacher at the evacuation area for student release. Your patience and cooperation in such a disaster is much appreciated.

Bicycle Safety

If a student is in the third grade or above, he/she may ride a bike to school. Bike riders must obey all safety rules and the California Vehicle Code. When a student arrives on the school grounds, the bike must be walked to the bike rack, parked and locked. Remember, bikes must be walked while in the hallways, and on all school property. The privilege of riding a bike may be withdrawn if the rules are not observed. For the safety of all bicycle riders, students must use protective bike helmets as per California law. Students in grades 3 and above may also ride skateboards, rollerblades and scooters to school. Storage of these items is the responsibility of the student. Helmets must also be worn when riding the above items. Sellers School and the Glendora Unified School District are not responsible for any theft or vandalism of any of the above items while on school grounds.
