Key safety terms to know
Learn the Three Levels: Shelter-in-Place, Lock Down, Threat on Campus

The following are some key terms for us all to be familiar with in case of an on-campus emergency or an event in the vicinity of campus

Shelter-in-Place

The lowest level of emergency. Students, faculty, and staff are instructed to stay inside, close and lock doors and windows as a precaution, continue to conduct business as usual in the classroom, and follow the instructions given via the PA announcements. 

Lock Down

An incident that requires a higher level of safety than “Shelter-in-Place” with events in close proximity to campus or on campus. Students, faculty, and staff are instructed to stop all class activity and secure the classroom. Please note that a “Lock Down” does not necessarily signal an immediate, active threat to campus like an “active assailant” incident. Everyone should remain calm in a secure location and follow the instructions given via the PA announcements. 

Assailant/Shooter/Threat on campus

The highest level threat in response to an incident that is on campus. Reactions should be based on Run / Hide / Fight protocol. An alert may be initiated through our PA system or a real time reaction based on a visible or audible threat.

Travel Over Break

A note regarding travel

The California Department of Public Health’s travel advisory due to COVID-19 recommends all persons to avoid non-essential travel to any part of California more than 120 miles from one’s place of residence, or to other states or countries. All persons arriving in or returning to California from other states or countries are advised to self-quarantine for 10 days after their arrival. 

Please be mindful that while Jesuit is not mandating travel restrictions, Jesuit’s Safe Return Plan is predicated on following recommended guidelines minimizing risk to the entire community. If you choose to travel, please thoughtfully consider keeping your son in distance learning upon his return for one week, and have him participate in the weekly antigen screening at the start of the following screening cycle.

Student Athletic Screening — no icon, no access
Icon must be RED or GOLD for access to sports

A screening is valid for athletic activities for seven days only. If the student is doing classes by Distance Learning, the student should arrive at the start of the screening day window at 7:15 am and remain on campus while awaiting his test results either in the gym or in his vehicle until the test results are posted on his PowerSchool. account.

Student Athlete Assessment Opportunity

All students and student-athletes are invited to sign up for an opportunity to meet one-on-one through Zoom with Athletic Director Hank Weinberger to get insight into who they are as athletes.  Students will get insight into what kind of athlete they are and learn how to translate that into success on the field, court and in the pool.  To start this process, students just need to fill out a very brief form to indicate interest in this customized athletic assessment.  After completing the two-minute survey, stude

Christian Service Online
An optional letter writing opportunity to help others in isolation

Given the current need for social distancing, many people are experiencing isolation in new, deeper ways. For people who were already isolated, this social distancing can be especially painful.

To respond to this reality, we will be inviting our students to engage in an optional service opportunity by writing a letter to a client or resident (or multiple clients or residents) at one of several non-profit agencies and programs.

Morning Prayers & Examens
Student led by our Campus Ministry Core Team on YouTube

Morning prayers and the Examen started online with the coordination of two seniors. Carlo Pedroncelli ’21 coordinated and posted the morning video prayers, and Donovan Jasper ’21 coordinated and posted the video Examen. When we started back to school in the hybrid model, students began leading the prayers over the P.A. system. (If you are interested in leading morning prayer or the Examen, please contact the Campus Ministry Team.) Every Monday morning we announce a challenge for the week based on the profile of the Graduate at Graduation. During the Examen on Fridays we reflect on how we have done toward that challenge and end by praying: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.  In this time of uncertainty and change, this can be a life-giving prayer for us to pray weekly or maybe even daily in our own prayer lives.

Tips to Train From Home

In response to the current school closure, the Jesuit Sports Performance Team is committed to providing guidance and support not only to our students-athletes, but the entire school community while campus is closed.  Physical and mental well-being is not something to be taken for granted, therefore we will continue to reference the current research and employ standard practices to provide the very best health advice. All current research supports this balanced, minimalistic protocol for promoting comprehensive wellness and basic human performance.

Academic, College, and Wellness Counseling

Wellness

As you head into finals week next week remember that while it is important to strive for your best on your exams, your health and well-being is even more important. As the posters around campus highlight from the Impact Distracted Driving campaign: Instincts Matter. Instincts matter when you are driving, and instincts matter in our everyday experiences with ourselves and others. Pause, assess, and if necessary Speak Up.
