Our Security and Safety Committee meets once a month to discuss all items related to the security and safety of our parish school families, staff, and students. We meet the last Tuesday of each month at 8am in the Art room. All are welcome to attend.
Rich Romo has been hired as our Director of Safety and Security. He will be working with our administration to implement all safety and security procedures.
Under the direction of CA Safe Schools, the St. Ignatius School Safety and Security Manual was created and completed in June. This will be updated and changed as necessary.
The school and parish have an Incident and Accident Report Binder that is used to track all incidents on the campus. The Safety committee will use these reports to change/update any procedures and to identify any areas of concern. We are asking all staff and all parents to support us by reporting any minor or major incidents or accidents on line. You can do an on line report by going to our website at stignatiussacschool.org and Click on “support,” click on “Advisory Council,” click on “Safety Committee,” and then click on incident report. After you have completed the report, just hit submit and your report will be sent to the school principal.
We have designated ext. 185 for our community to use to leave messages regarding any concerns for the safety and security of our students and our families. This ext. will be checked daily. We encourage you to use this number or to contact us personally for an immediate response.
All families are asked to provide their cell number AND their carrier on our Schoolspeak communications system. This will allow us to contact you immediately through a text in case of an emergency. When you have any changes to your contact information you will need to update this information yourself.
The Catholic School Advisory Commission has several important functions to fulfill as it helps advise the principal and pastor. One important function is Facilities and Safety.
The goal of the Facilities and Safety Committee is to advise and assist the school administration in planning for the current and future needs. All aspects are considered:
Safety-procedures, intervention and prevention, capital needs, documentation, and reporting
Facilities-capital needs, current and future program needs, site improvements
Communication-partnership with parish, local business, and school district programs, and reporting to all shareholders
Saint Ignatius Parish School has established a voice mailbox to accept messages of concern regarding threats (including threats of self-harm) or reports of criminal activity. A staff member is designated to check for messages at the beginning of each school day. The Safety and Security line is accessed by calling (916) 488-3907 and dialing extension 185.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a field trip, or any activity that involves our students, MUST complete an on line course provided by LawRoom and our Safe Environment for Children Program.
THIS TRAINING IS MANDATED AND A PROOF OF CERTIFICATE MUST BE PRESENTED TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE BEFORE YOU MAY VOLUNTEER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY SCHOOL EVENTS/FUNCTIONS WHERE CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. This training must be renewed EVERY 3 years.
