Dear Venetia Valley Families,

We want to follow up with you to let you know that the Marin Sheriff’s Department has lifted the lockdown at Venetia Valley School; we were given the “all clear” and the school day will resume as normal. 

The Sheriff Department conducted a thorough search and investigation before lifting the lockdown. I am happy to share that our students and staff are safe and that everyone worked together and responded calmly. There was minimal interruption to the day.

Thank you for your cooperation during this situation. If you have any questions, please call the school office or 415-492-3233.

Sincerely,

All Students Safe: Venetia Valley on Lockdown as a Precaution; Bomb Threat at Nearby Jewish Community Center

Dear Venetia Valley Families,

We want to update you about a situation at our school this morning, and to share that all our students and staff members are safe. This morning, the Marin County Sheriff’s Department put Venetia Valley School and other schools in the area on lockdown as a precaution because of a bomb threat to the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center, which is located across the street from Venetia Valley. 

We have checked in with every classroom and every student, and every individual on our campus is safe. Students are sheltering in place in their classroom and instruction is continuing. We have plans in place to ensure that the school day continues safely and with minimal disruption. The Sheriff’s Department is asking that individuals refrain from going to the area; please do not come to pick up your child at this time. 

Our school is committed to the safety and education of all our students. All threats near our schools are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly, and we are working closely with the Sheriff’s Department. We want to clearly communicate with parents about safety issues as they arise. 

We will follow up again as we learn more. If you have any questions, please call 415-492-3233.

Sincerely,

Juan Rodriguez
Venetia Valley School Principal


Todos los estudiantes a salvo: Venetia Valley en bloqueo como precaución; Amenaza de bomba en el Centro Comunitario Judío Osher Marin

Estimadas Familias de la Escuela Venecia Valley,

Queremos informarles de una situación en nuestra escuela esta mañana y compartir que todos nuestros estudiantes y miembros del personal están a salvo. Esta mañana, el Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de Marin puso la escuela Venetia Valley y otras escuelas en el área en cierre como precaución debido a una amenaza de bomba al Centro Comunitario Judío Osher Marin, que se encuentra cruzando la calle a Venetia Valley.

Hemos registrado cada salón de clases y cada estudiante, y cada individuo en nuestro campus es seguro. Los estudiantes se están refugiando en sus clases y la instrucción continúa. Tenemos planes para garantizar que el día escolar continúe con seguridad y con un mínimo de interrupciones. El Departamento del Sheriff pide que las personas se abstengan de ir al área; por favor no venga a recoger a su hijo en este momento.

Nuestra escuela está comprometida con la seguridad y educación de todos nuestros estudiantes. Todas las amenazas cercanas a nuestras escuelas son tomadas en serio e investigadas a fondo, y estamos trabajando de cerca con el Departamento del Sheriff. Queremos comunicarnos claramente con los padres sobre los problemas de seguridad a medida que surjan

Los mantendremos informados a medidas que sepamos más de la situación. Si tiene alguna pregunta, por favor llame a la oficina de la escuela o al 415-492-3233.


Sinceramente,

Juan Rodríguez
Director de la Escuela Venecia Valley
