5 Steps for a Safe School

If you need assistance, please call our Assistant Principal Mrs.Sanchez at (951)738-2155 ext.#4010

1.) Awareness
Know the warning signs for your son/daughter:

  • Doesn't want to go to school, find excuses for absences;
  • Seems sad, depressed, anxious, angry;
  • Spends a lot of time alone.

2.) Education
Learn about youth development and bullying

  • Youth development - www.search-institute.org
  • Bullying - www.education.com; www.bullyinginfo.org; www.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov; www.safechild.org/bullies.htm; http://www.partnerstx.org/Resources/Bullying/Bullying_Home.htm

3.) Support
Show that you care;

  • Be direct: ask your son/daughter, do you feel safe at school? Are you being teased or bullied at school or on-line?
  • Help your son/daughter find a trusted adult to talk to: guidance counselor, social worker, family member, clergy, mentor, coach, adult friend.

4.) Step In
With your child's knowledge, intervene:

  • Even if you have never done this before, speak with the school principal, guidance counselor, social worker, student assistance counselor or classroom teacher.
  • Help your child find the supports he/she needs - referrals, support groups, out-of-school activities, etc.

5.) Step Up
Advocate for safe schools

  • Participate on your school improvement team
  • Voice your opinion at a school committee meeting
  • Ask other parents to join your efforts to create a safe school.
