Red Ribbon Week

HISTORY OF RED RIBBON WEEK:

  • In 1985, DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena died during an effort to prevent drug trafficking between Mexico and the United States. Shortly after Kiki’s death, Congressman Duncan Hunter and Kiki’s high school friend Henry Lozano launched “Camarena Clubs” in Kiki’s hometown of Calexico, California. Hundreds of club members pledged to lead drug-free lives to honor the sacrifice made by Kiki Camarena.

2018 Height & Weight Surveillance Project

CVESD will begin collecting height and weight data in all schools beginning in October. The data will be part of a surveillance project intended to give CVESD a biennial look at grade level results based on age, gender, school and district measures. Heights and weights of students in kindergarten through 6th grade will be measured in a confidential setting and remain confidential. A parental notification form has been sent home. If you do not want your child’s weight and height measured, please complete and sign the form and send back to school by October 10th.
