Superintendent's Newsletter of October 5, 2022

Larkspur-Corte Madera School District


Dear LCMSD Community,


It is hard to believe that we are already in October! Elementary parents, we appreciate your flexibility during our early out days so that we can assess and determine the appropriate range of text for your child. This information helps us tailor instruction to meet your child’s needs and further develop them as a reader through strategic actions. Middle school families, we are busy fine tuning our proficiency scales and gearing up for Walk-a-Thon; we appreciate all of your support. Additionally, it was fantastic to see so many students and families participating in the SPARK Fun Run this last weekend. LCMSD is a great place to learn and grow!


To support high levels of student achievement, we have to start first with a safe and caring environment. This newsletter is focused on several safety updates, some of which were funded through our School Violence Prevention Grant. Please take a moment to read them.

October 6th is MCOE’S Let’s Talk Event: Current Drug Trends Among Local Youth

HERE are the Zoom event details. Marin County Office of Education has done a great job creating Let’s Talk materials to help parents navigate the tween/teen years. Information is key and we hope you find this and future events helpful. 


Share 911

Today staff were trained in Share 911, which is a tool that notifies the appropriate first responders, as well as school personnel, in the event of an intruder, wildfire, medical, or other emergency. Over the next few weeks, schools will participate in emergency drills to practice using this app. 


Narcan Available at All Schools

Narcan, or Naloxone is available at all school sites in the event that someone appears to be experiencing an opioid overdose. Select staff have been trained in how to administer this treatment.


We Love Your Furry Friends, But Please Leave Them at Home

Just a friendly reminder it is LCMSD policy that there are to be no dogs on campus. Please leave furry family members at home during drop off and pick up.
