The top priority of the Spreckels Union School District is to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for its students and staff. To achieve this goal, the District has formed a Safety Committee that meets regularly throughout the year to make sure policies and procedures are in place to deal with any type of crisis. The Safety Committee is comprised of District administration, teachers, support staff, parents, community members, and local first responders. One of the primary responsibilities of the Safety Committee is to review and update the District’s Comprehensive School Safety Plan that is presented to the Board of Trustees and shared with the Monterey County Office of Education. In addition, the Safety Committee works with the site principals to schedule and evaluate regular safety drills throughout the year. These drills include Fire, Earthquake, Shelter in Place, and Active Shooter.
The District relies on its parents and community members when developing its safety procedures. Please see the Parent Emergency Response Information document (PDF) for ways that you, as parents and community members, can support the District in the case of an emergency. We thank you in advance for helping us keep our students and staff as safe as possible.
