Restorative Justice at Stephens Middle School

Restorative Justice (RJ) is a set of practices that support the needs of students, teachers, staff, and other stakeholders towards building and strengthening relationships for the well-being of the entire school community. One of the main RJ practices involves Community Building Circles, which foster mutual understanding and accountability among participants through dialogue and socio-emotional learning.


Restorative Justice also functions as both a proactive approach to prevent conflict as well as to respond to conflict and disciplinary matters. To address an incidence of harm, Restorative Justice uses Harm & Conflict Circle practices to ask the person who caused harm to take responsibility for her/his actions, help the harmed person to heal, and involve the community as a whole to offer support and encouragement.

Threat Prevention


Hello, Students and Families.


As we’ve seen in recent weeks, our schools are not immune to the potential threats that so many other schools nationwide have been dealing with.  We appreciate your heightened awareness of this issue, and we continue to encourage everyone in our school communities to report any suspicious information or activity that could impact school safety.


Threats to our schools are not harmless, and they are not funny.  They take valuable resources and time from our school district and the law enforcement agencies who work with us each day to keep our schools safe.  Threats cause anxiety for parents, students and staff, and they can disrupt the important work of teaching and learning.  Students who make threats face consequences that linger long after the threat is made.  We reiterate the Long Beach Police Department’s recent statement about such threats:


“The Long Beach Police Department takes all potential threats of violence very seriously and thoroughly investigates all reported incidents,” Chief Robert Luna said. “Making any kind of threat whether in person or online, is illegal and has serious consequences.”


Those consequences, as we also have seen in recent weeks, can include suspension, expulsion, arrest and potential prosecution under the law.  Students who make threats, even as a “joke,” can quickly find themselves facing the entire range of these consequences. 


We urge parents to discuss this matter with their children.  In light of the senseless loss of lives in recent school shootings nationally, it is completely inappropriate and unacceptable to make threats, even as a “joke.”


We have appreciated everyone’s support during this challenging time.  Again, we continue to encourage students, parents and staff to immediately report any information that could impact the safety of others.  With your help, we can continue to provide safe schools and the best possible education for our students.

Prevención de amenazas


Hola, estudiantes y familias.


Como hemos visto en las últimas semanas, nuestras escuelas no son inmunes a las posibles amenazas que otras escuelas a nivel nacional han estado enfrentando. Agradecemos su intensificada concienciación sobre este problema y seguimos animando a todos dentro de nuestras comunidades escolares a reportar toda información o actividad sospechosa que pudiera afectar la seguridad escolar.


Las amenazas a nuestras escuelas no son inocentes y no son graciosas.  Le quitan recursos valiosos y tiempo a nuestro distrito escolar y a las agencias del orden público quienes trabajan con nosotros cada día para mantener nuestras escuelas seguras.  Las amenazas les provocan ansiedad a los padres de familia, los estudiantes y al personal y pueden interrumpir la importante tarea de enseñar y aprender.  Los estudiantes que hacen estas amenazas enfrentan consecuencias que perduran por mucho tiempo después de haberlas hecho.  Reiteramos la reciente declaración del Departamento de Policía de Long Beach sobre estas amenazas:


El jefe de policía Robert Luna dijo, “el Departamento de Policía de Long Beach toma muy en serio todas las posibles amenazas de violencia e investiga completamente todos los incidentes reportados.”   “Hacer cualquier tipo de amenaza, ya sea en persona o por internet, es ilegal y tiene consecuencias graves.” 


Tales consecuencias, como también hemos visto en las recientes semanas, pueden incluir suspensión, arresto y un posible procesamiento legal.  Los estudiantes que hacen amenazas, aún en forma de “broma,” pueden encontrarse rápidamente enfrentando la gama completa de estas consecuencias. 


Instamos a los padres de familia a platicar con sus hijos de este asunto.  A consecuencia de la pérdida sin sentido de vidas en los recientes tiroteos escolares a nivel nacional, es completamente inapropiado e inaceptable hacer estas amenazas, ni siquiera en forma de “broma.”


Agradecemos el apoyo de todos durante este tiempo difícil.  Seguimos animando a los estudiantes, los padres de familia y al personal a que reporten inmediatamente cualquier información que pudiera tener un impacto en la seguridad de otras personas.  Con su ayuda, podemos seguir proporcionando escuelas seguras y la mejor educación posible para nuestros estudiantes.

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.



As a District and CAAP group, we strongly believe that parents play an essential role in helping students attain success in school. We must work together as partners to make certain that all children meet high academic standards. To help make this happen, we would like to provide parents/guardians with the information, tools, and skills that will empower parents to elevate achievement in their home, school, and community.


Please see the attached flyer for the time and dates of each monthly meeting.
