As a school community, we continue to struggle with the senseless tragedy that occured in Parkland, Florida. When a school shooting or any type of violence occurs on a school campus, we all experience a wide range of emotions, including wondering if something like this could happen to our children. The Perris Union High School District (PUHSD) is committed to providing a safe environment for our students and staff, not just at times of heightened awareness, but as the top priority on a daily basis.
The responsibility of keeping our schools safe belongs to everyone. We must all continue to be aware of potential threats and hazards that could jeopardize the safety of students and staff alike. Please encourage your student to speak out if they see or hear anything that could pose a threat to school safety. Quite simply, “If you see something, say something”.
Preparation and training is of the utmost importance and we continue to take proactive steps on every campus to ensure the effectiveness of our security measures. As parents, you place your trust in us each and every day when you send your student to school. As a district, we have no greater responsibility than to educate and keep your children safe. As such, I wanted to provide to you the following examples for how each school in the district ensure safety on our campuses.
