SUHSD works collaboratively with local law enforcement, emergency medical services, and other county resources to ensure student safety is a top priority. All SUHSD schools follow response guidelines as outlined in the San Mateo County's "Big Five: School Emergency Guidelines." This work comes out of San Mateo County's Coalition for Safe Schools and Communities, a collaborative, multi-agency group that was formed in 2013, following the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School incident. SUHSD schools receive annual Big Five trainings, in addition to the recently released Student Threat Assessment Protocol and Suicide Prevention Toolkit from 2017.
If you have questions regarding safety at any of the SUHSD school sites, please contact the appropriate administrative team.
