Montebello Unified Police Department Partners to Donate School Supplies, Sports Equipment

As part of its ongoing commitment to strengthen its relationship with the community, the Montebello Unified School District Police Department visited Greenwood Elementary School on May 11 to remind students to keep moving – and to donate a collection of school supplies and athletic equipment.

Chief Linh Dinh, MUSD PD officers, and MUSD PD community partner 4 R Kids, 4 R Future were featured guests at the school’s morning assembly. Dinh explained to students the importance of physical activity and the positive effects of health, mental alertness and learning.

Officers and 4 R Kids, 4 R Future representative Anthony Torres presented the students with donated soccer balls, goals, cones and tetherballs. The organization also provides backpacks, school supplies, and other sports equipment to students.

“Through collaborative efforts with our District leaders and community partners, we can do more for our students as they grow and prepare for their future,” MUSD Superintendent Susanna Contreras Smith said. “Thank you to all those who team up to remind our students of the value of exercise and physical activity – while creating opportunities to give back to those in need.”

This is the third year that MUSD PD has partnered with 4 R Kids, 4 R Future to donate supplies and equipment to District schools.

Back to School Traffic Safety Reminders

As school starts up, please be aware of the following proactive measures you can take to ensure the safety of students:
In General

  • Drive cautiously.  Children are smaller and less visible than adults.
  • Children can be easily distracted and may have difficulty judging traffic situations.
  • Slow down near schools.
  • Don’t drive distracted.  Stay focused.
  • Scan between parked cars and other obstructions.
  • Always stop for school buses that are loading or unloading students.

Tips for Parents/Guardians

  • Do not drop off students in the street.  Pull over to a designated passenger loading/unloading area or other legal place to park.
  • Arrive early to drop off/pick up your child to avoid traffic congestion.
  • Park nearby and walk to the school.
  • Cross the street at crosswalks and intersections only.

“Automobile crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 3 and older-whether a child is a passenger in a car or is struck while walking or biking to school.”  -  Automobile Association of America.
