The safety of students and staff is a primary concern of Cabrillo High School. The school is in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to hazardous materials and state earthquake standards. The school’s disaster preparedness plan includes steps for ensuring student and staff safety during a disaster. Fire and
disaster drills are conducted on a regular basis. All visitors must check in at the school office and wear a visitor’s badge while on school grounds. Before school, during lunch and after school, teachers, administrators, and school safety liaisons supervise students on school grounds to ensure a safe and orderly environment. In 1998, the Comprehensive Safety Plan was developed by the district in consultation with local law enforcement in order to comply with Senate Bill 187 of 1997. The plan provides students and staff a means to ensure a safe and orderly learning environment. Components of the Comprehensive Safety Plan include child-abuse reporting procedures, teacher notification of dangerous-pupil procedures, disaster-response procedures, procedures for safe ingress and egress from school, sexual harassment policies, and dress code guidelines. The plan is updated and reviewed with school staff annually during the fall semester. It was last reviewed and updated in November 2019. A copy of the plan is available to the public at the school and district office.
