A Safe Learning Environment


Santa Teresa High School believes that providing a safe learning environment is critical to student success and takes proactive measures to protect the safety of all our students and staff members.  School Site Administration and District representatives work in close collaboration with local, state and federal health, safety and emergency personnel to develop and maintain plans for responding to a variety of emergency situations.  Additionally, individual site Safety Plans are annually reviewed and updated by teams of parents and staff members. For more information please visit ESUHSD - Safety/Security

School Safety Plans


While a safety crisis on a school campus is unlikely, emergencies do occur and schools need to be prepared and have a plan to respond. As part of normal school district operations, all campuses have comprehensive, up-to-date safety plans to address a variety of emergency conditions such as fire, earthquake, and evacuation. The plans are reinforced through drills with students and at regular meetings with our employees.
The safety plans help school personnel prevent unnecessary confusion and turmoil in an emergency. Planned schoolwide crisis response can significantly reduce disruption during times of high stress. A structured response by a trained team of staff members can facilitate the return to a normal school routine in the unlikely event of a crisis occurring on or near the school campus.

In any emergency situation, specific response strategies will depend on the nature and scope of the incident and prevailing conditions. In most incidents, public safety and emergency management personnel will play a critical role in identifying the specific nature, cause, and extent of the emergency, as well as providing guidance to administrators on the response steps that must be carried out.

Your children are surrounded daily by professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping their students; in the event of an emergency, you can count on these caring individuals to keep your children secure. All employees in the ESUHSD continue to work to make all our schools safe and secure environments.

If you have questions about your child's safety and school support responses, please contact your principal. Your understanding, support, and cooperation are vital as we take these precautionary actions on behalf of our students.

Staff Responsibilities in the Event of a Terror Attack


In the event of a terrorist attack, Santa Teresa High School Administration and staff will take appropriate measures in line with the local Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) response. Administration and staff will be in contact with the San Jose Police Department and the Office of Emergency Service to help determine the action to be taken. Specific actions are listed below in the event of national and/or regional/local attack. We believe a local attack is the least likely event to occur.

Per Government Code Section 3100 et seq., during a disaster, public employees become "Disaster Service Workers." As Disaster Service Workers, we will be called upon to serve at our work sites unless otherwise directed by local authorities. The four bullets below provide direction for employees:

  •     If a crisis occurs during an employee's regular work schedule, the employee is to remain at his/her respective work site until officially released by the supervisor. Principals/designees will take into consideration the familial needs of employees and release staff accordingly.
  •     If a crisis occurs when an employee is on his/her way home from work and children have been dismissed, he/she should continue on and tune in to television and/or radio stations and be available to be reached by telephone for further direction.
  •     If a crisis occurs when an employee is on his/her way home from work and children have NOT been dismissed, the employee should return to his/her work site immediately, conditions permitting.
  •     If a crisis occurs when an employee is on his/her way to work, he/she should continue on if roads are passable. If he/she is unable to make it to work due to impassable roads and/or hazardous conditions, he/she should contact his/her work site and inform them of his/her location.
  •     If a crisis occurs at a time that is NOT during an employee's regular work schedule, the employee is to report to work at his/her regular place and time (business as usual) unless notified by telephone, television, or radio announcement to do otherwise.
