Dear Parents and Guardians:
It is always
important to review our school’s safety plans and to remain vigilant in
constantly monitoring our security measures. As such, I wanted to take a
moment to review with you Black Rock High School’s security procedures.
The staff has
developed a school-wide safety plan that is reviewed and updated
annually. Staff members revisit this plan regularly to ensure they know
what to do in the event of a natural disaster or a security breach, and
drills are practiced throughout the year.
As part of this
plan, the ingress and egress of students and visitors is limited to the
main entrance, which is closely monitored by staff members. The school
is equipped with a two-way radio system that comes with an emergency
channel for direct contact with first responders, and in case of an
emergency, we have a system of communication in place with police,
district office, and parents of registered students. Our campus is
fenced, and all campus visitors must report to the office.
In addition to the
staff members and myself, the district also employees two part-time
campus supervisors, who help to monitor the safety of our students.
Together, we patrol the school and stay in constant communication
throughout the day.
Our students are an
extension of our family, and each student’s safety is a priority to
us. Please know we will make every effort feasible to maintain a safe
learning environment for them throughout the year. If you have any
questions or comments, please feel free to call (760)369-6310 or email
