SLUSD Emergency Procedures

  • All SLUSD schools have uniform emergency procedures for intruder on campus, unsafe situations in the surrounding community, chemical spill, or environmental and natural disasters. All procedures were created in collaboration with local law enforcement and are based upon nationwide best practices. Procedures are kept confidential to the community to protect students and staff. A summary of the procedures is listed below.

Practicing Emergency Procedures

  • SLUSD schools practice all emergency procedures with their staff and students several times during every school year.  Elementary school sites practice lockdown procedures 1 time per year and 2 times per year at the secondary level.  Schools practice fire drill procedures 1 time per month at the elementary level, 4 times per year at the middle school level and 2 times per year at the high school level.  If you would like to observe your child's school during an emergency drill you may do so by contacting the principal.  All SLUSD schools have a comprehensive emergency plan which assigns staff to key roles such as search and recovery, monitoring students, first aid, communications, etc. 

School Resource Officers

  • The San Leandro Police Department has assigned School Resource Police Officers (SRO) to schools for many years.  The SRO serves all SLUSD.  The role of the SRO is to insure student safety and to develop positive relationships with students.  The SRO monitors students on campus and attend various school activities and athletic events.  

Campus Supervisors

  • All middle and high school sites have campus supervisors assigned to monitor campus and insure student safety.  Wilson, our largest elementary school, also has an assigned campus supervisor.
