The safety of our students is our top priority. Following SBCUSD policies, Cajon High School holds four or five types of safety drills throughout the school year:
- Drop Drill, also called Drop, Cover, & Hold Drill: Students practice safety measures to prevent harm during an earthquake. Students protect their heads, take cover under desks and tables, and move away from windows and glass.
- Fire Drill: Students learn to evacuate classrooms safely in the event of a fire.
- Lockdown Drill: Students move to the safety of a classroom or closest building when there is imminent danger either on campus or in the neighborhood, such as from a loose animal, community incident, or police action.
- Shelter-in-Place Drill: Similar to a Lock Down Drill. Used when there is an environmental threat, such as a chemical spill, fire, or insect swarm in the area.
- ShakeOut Drill: Students evacuate to the P.E. field, simulating an earthquake event. This drill is held on or near the date of the annual Great California Shakeout.
These types of emergencies are unlikely to occur, but Cajon High School is determined to be prepared!
