As a Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) school, East Avenue Middle School’s mission is to provide tuition-free, equitable, well-rounded, standards-based instruction in a safe and supportive learning environment that supports the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth of all students. Data drawn from formative and summative assessments informs our teaching strategies, and the faculty actively collaborates on a consistent basis to increase student achievement.
Our vision for East Avenue Middle School over the next 3 - 5 years follows:
East Avenue Middle School provides a safe, inspiring, and up-to-date learning environment in which students, staff, parents, and community members provide support to all students in developing the skills, attitudes, and motivation to succeed in school and beyond. Students strive to promote from East Avenue as academically and socially responsible youth who value critical thinking, creativity, integrity, diversity, and service to others.

Bicycle Safety Alert
Recent collisions call attention to bicycle safety around schools
The Livermore Police Department recently responded to two Vehicle vs. Bicycle collisions near school zones over the past week. If your child rides their bicycle to school, we would like to remind parents to discuss bicycle safety and rules of the road with their children.
Bicyclists ARE NOT pedestrians and are required to obey all traffic laws and to wear a helmet if under the age of 18.
Motorist should also keep in mind that while traveling in school zones, there are likely young, inexperienced bicyclists and pedestrians in the area. Please use extra caution while exiting driveways or making turning movements in areas around schools.
Remember that the speed limit in school zones is 25 MPH when children are present (regardless of the posted speed limit). Please read the following bicycle safety tips and share them with your family and friends.
Bicycling on the Road
Bicycles in California are considered vehicles, and cyclists have the same rights and the same responsibilities to follow the rules of the road as motorists. When riding, always:
- Go With the Traffic Flow. Ride on the right in the same direction as other vehicles. Go with the flow – not against it.
- Obey All Traffic Laws. A bicycle is a vehicle and you’re a driver. When you ride in the street, obey all traffic signs, signals, and lane markings.
- Don’t ride a bicycle in a crosswalk. Crosswalks are for pedestrians. Bicycle riders need to stay within the lane of traffic in the direction they are traveling. If a bicyclist is riding on a sidewalk, and wants to cross a roadway from one sidewalk to the next, they must dismount their bicycle and walk across the roadway within the crosswalk and therefore become a pedestrian while using the crosswalk.
- Be Predictable. Ride in a straight line, not in and out of cars. Signal your moves to others.
- Stay Alert at All Times. Use your eyes AND ears. Watch out for potholes, cracks, storm grates, railroad tracks, or anything that could make you lose control of your bike. You need your ears to hear traffic and avoid dangerous situations; don’t wear a headset when you ride.
- Look Before Turning. When turning left or right, always look behind you for a break in traffic, then signal before making the turn. Watch for left- or right-turning traffic.
- Watch for Parked Cars. Ride far enough out from the curb to avoid the unexpected from parked cars (like doors opening, or cars pulling out).
Sidewalk versus Street Riding
The safest place for bicycle riding is on the street, where bicycles are expected to follow the same rules of the road as motorists and ride in the same direction.
- Children less than 10 years old, however, are not mature enough to make the decisions necessary to safely ride in the street.
- Children less than 10 years old are better off riding on the sidewalk.
- For anyone riding on a sidewalk:
- Watch for vehicles coming out of or turning into driveways.
- Stop at corners of sidewalks and streets to look for cars and to make sure the drivers see you before crossing.
- Enter a street at a corner and not between parked cars. Alert pedestrians that you are near by saying, “Excuse me,” or, “Passing on your left,” or use a bell or horn.
We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us to keep our Livermore children safe.

LAVTA/WHEELS DISCOUNT BUS PASS PROGRAM 2016-2017
What is the Student Transit Pass Pilot?
The Student Transit Pass Pilot is a three-year pilot program sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) and funded by Measure BB, a countywide sales tax measure. The Pilot aims to reduce barriers to transportation access to and from schools, and improve transportation options for Alameda County’s middle and high school students. The Pilot is expected to run from August 2016 through July 2019, with the hope of creating the basis for a countywide student pass program.
East Avenue Middle School is one of eleven schools in Alameda County that will participate in this program during the 2016-2017 pilot year. If you’re a full-time student enrolled at East Avenue Middle for the 2016-2017 school year, you are eligible to receive a Student Transit Pass as part of this Pilot.

Student Transit Registration and Waiver
The Homework Club meets in the library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:35-3:30 pm. We invite all students who would like a little extra help or a quiet place to work to join us. Once you sign in you must stay for the entire hour. Attendance is limited to the first 30 students to arrive.
We would like to remind the students that they need to come prepared. The Homework Club does not have books or supplies to loan out so text books, calculators, rulers, etc. must be supplied by the student.
Students also need to remember that this is to be a quiet work time. Students who want to spend the time visiting with friends will be asked to leave and do so somewhere else.
Thank You and Hope to See You There,
Breakfast Comes to East Avenue!
