The Perris Union High School District (PUHSD) takes proactive measures to protect the safety of all our students and staff members. The Safe School Plan for Perris Union High School District is a process, and is not intended to be a finished product. As the community changes, the District must be responsive and look to the future in order to meet the needs of the students of today and tomorrow. The Safe School Plan will be adjusted as the needs of the schools change. In order to accomplish this, we have formed a partnership with local fire and law enforcement agencies
Perris Union High School District and all PUHSD school facilities have safety plans. These plans involve efforts to protect all students while they are at school. The plans are designed with the help of local law enforcement, local fire, and emergency management officials. Plans are reviewed and updated yearly. These plans include procedures to respond to critical incidents, such as fire or earthquake, and school personnel practice these drills regularly.
The actions taken during any type of emergency depend a great deal on the specifics of the incident. For example, one or more schools may evacuate, lockdown, or initiate a shelter-in-place response, according to the nature of the threat. The main objective is the protection of the students and staff members. The ability to remain flexible is a key component of each school’s plan and of district-wide preparations. Additionally, PUHSD would follow direction from public safety officials.
If you have questions about your student’s school’s safety plan, please contact your principal. Everyone at Perris Union High School District continues to work to make all our schools safe and secure environments for all our students.
