Safety

How does Colfax Charter prepare for Emergencies?

 

We have emergency supplies

Colfax has emergency supplies, including a five-day supply of food and water, as well as first aid supplies, rescue equipment, and other basic necessities. These supplies are inspected regularly and used during drills. 

We conduct regular drills

Colfax conducts regular emergency drills. In addition, we participate in the Great California ShakeOut in which we practice search and rescue and medical response techniques. We also conduct a second supplementary drill in the spring to review lockdown procedures. Our Safe School Plan is updated annually customized to meet the school’s changing needs. A copy of the school safe plan is kept in the Main Office. 

 

We have safe buildings

Public K-12 schools in California are legally required by the Field Act to be built to a higher construction standard than other buildings and are inspected more frequently – this makes them less likely to collapse during an earthquake. Colfax also has fire alarms, sprinklers and extinguishers.  We undergo annual safety inspections by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety, and the local Fide Department. Additionally our campus is a locked/secure camus. During the school day, there is only one gate through which someone can access the school.

 

We have trained personnel

Our teachers are first aid certified and we have a school nurse once a week. There are numerous first aid and CPR courses offered through the district for free to school personnel. In addition, free online courses in disaster preparation and response and emergency management are offered to every school district employee through the STEPS program. If there is an emergency at school, school personnel have been trained, and will react quickly to protect children. LAUSD has its own police force to help with safety and security.

 

Keep Yourself Informed

Keep yourself informed of school procedures by attending parent meetings, reading the student-parent handbook, and school newsletter, and checking the school website periodically. Attend emergency drills at your child’s school, and make sure that your family is prepared for emergencies, too.
