Dean’s Office:  Campus Safety Check
Proactive, routine sweeps with trained search dogs

On Wednesday, November 8, 2023, we held our third routine campus safety check of the school year. These safety checks are completed in conjunction with our partners from K9 Proactive along with their trained search dogs and consist of a sweep of classrooms, locker rooms, offices, and the parking lot. The K9 Proactive dogs are trained to detect explosives, alcohol, gunpowder, prescription drugs that can be abused, illicit drugs, and other substances that are banned from school property.

Health and Safety Update – Local reports of “rainbow” fentanyl pills targeting minors

Local law enforcement and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) officials have seen an alarming influx of “rainbow” fentanyl (an extremely potent and dangerous synthetic opioid) in the greater Sacramento region that is being marketed to kids and young adults. Rainbow fentanyl can be found in many forms, including pills, powder, and blocks that can resemble sidewalk chalk or candy.


State still has mask mandate in place for schools
CDPH to provide update on Feb. 28

Monday, California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly provided a statewide update on the progress of combating COVID-19 in schools and introduced the state’s pathway for relaxing school masking mandates. On Feb 28, the state will announce the timeline to lift the school masking mandate as long as COVID-19 health metrics continue to improve.


Student Parking Reminders
A message from the Dean

Neighbors and other commuters have recently reported several incidents of dangerous and/or distracted driving by individuals coming into our campus. All laws in the state vehicle code relating to the operation of motor vehicles are to be obeyed when driving on or near the school grounds. Excessive speed or careless driving on campus endangers pedestrians and everyone on the road. This type of reckless driving renders a student liable to suspension of his driving and parking privileges and will result in disciplinary action.
