Drop Off/Pick Up: Helpful Hints
Thank you to all the drivers at WRMS for showing patience and courtesy to other drivers. Here are some hints that may lighten traffic and stress on adults.
As part of our commitment to ensuring that parents are aware of the technology we are using in our schools, I would like to share with you a list of the web-based programs used by both our school and District, including links to more information about these systems. Please know that over the past school year we have been reviewing the privacy policies of all of the programs that we use to ensure compliance with the Federal Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) and other federal and state laws, and that we are doing everything we can to protect our student information.
SRVUSD takes security very seriously and has therefore taken every precaution to secure our student and parent information. In order to secure your personally identifiable information we utilize several security and privacy measures to prevent loss, theft, or misuse of any student or parent data. Please see our district web site for information about systems in use district-wide (www.srvusd.net/techforparents).
In addition to the district programs, our school has adopted the use of the following:
In some cases, teachers may use other apps or web-based teaching tools. Staff are asked to read the privacy policies prior to using them. In addition, beginning this year, teachers will be informing parents when they are using something that is not on one of the lists above.
In some cases, parents will be asked to sign a permission form before the student uses the technology. This will take place when the program requests certain personally identifiable information, generally the student’s name, must be provided to the web site or application operator. Under state and federal law, some websites and apps must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. The district will not knowingly use, with or without your consent, any program or service if the program or service sells or shares personally identifiable information beyond what is necessary to operate the program or service, in the case of a merger or acquisition, or as required by law.
You can learn more about online privacy by visiting San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s Digital Citizenship webpage (http://www.digitalsrvusd.net/).

Principal's Welcome Message
“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
Our website is both user-friendly and informative. If you are a parent or student, you will discover more detailed information when you log into your Schoolloop account using the login button located on the left of this homepage. One of my personal goals is to make certain this website is an effective communication tool so that everyone connected to WRMS is well informed about all the activities on campus. Please explore this site and look for updates and pertinent material. You will find that the quick links sidebar connects you to SRV district news and Common Core California State Standards.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me. I want to work together with you throughout your child’s time at WRMS to ensure the best possible experience for them. We are good at what we do because our combined efforts encourage students to meet, and even surpass, each and every one of their goals. I urge you to come and help us make things happen at this exceptional California middle school.
All students will learn at high levels and become responsible, productive citizens.
