Schools Host Virtual Red Ribbon Week Activities

Schools Host Virtual Red Ribbon Week Activities

Mountain View School District’s 12 schools joined the nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign celebrating Red Ribbon Week, October 23rd through 31st, promoting the importance of living drug, tobacco, alcohol and vape free lives. 

MVSD’s 12 Schools held virtual activities and fun dress up days as students pledged to be drug-free. Students enjoyed attending their distance learning classes dressed up for the theme of the day including wearing a mustache for I mustache you to not do drugs day; Crazy Hat and Hair Day - Use your head – don’t use drugs; Pajama Day - Don’t be caught sleeping, say no to drugs; Nerd Day to show they are Too smart to Start and many students concluded the week’s activities by wearing their Halloween costume because Drugs are scary, don’t do them!  Schools were also adorned with Red Ribbons and signs promoting this year’s Red Ribbon Week theme – “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.”     

The El Monte Police Department didn’t let the physical school closures stop them from supporting the Red Ribbon Week efforts.  The department created a Red Ribbon Week video for schools to utilize during Distance Learning, featuring the Police Chief, School Resource Officers, Safety Officers, Detectives, K-9 Officers, SWAT Officers, Tactical Flight Officers and the Chief Pilot.  The officers shared how much they miss the students and encouraged them to work hard in school, keep focused on their goals and stay away from drugs, alcohol, tobacco and vaping.

MVSD greatly appreciates the efforts and partnership of the El Monte Police Department for their continued support of our students and schools.
