School Safety

School Safety is a top priority at Mountain House High School.  We take a comprehensive approach to school safety by addressing it in several different ways.  One is through creating a safe campus environment, which includes secured gated entries to campus with campus supervisors, administrators and counselors at each gate in the morning, and supervision at the gates in the afternoons.  During the school day, there is only one entrance to the campus through the administration building where the front desk is staffed throughout the day.  Our use of a visitor management system automatically logs visitors to campus and checks their background before entering campus.  We have 3 full-time campus supervisors monitoring campus throughout the day, and a county sheriff helps to patrol district schools during the course of the school day.  In addition, the high school maintains an extensive video surveillance system that assists us to monitor campus 24 hours a Day, 7 days a week. 
Each of our schools has a school safety team and school security protocols outlining step-by-step measures to address safety/security concerns.  The district maintains a radio communication system that spans the entire district for quick and efficient communication in the event of an emergency.  Our district and site safety committees consistently work to create safety plans, schedule safety drills, and respond to emergency situations swiftly. Below you will find our school safety plan and information about safety protocols that we follow at the school.
