Safety at Fossil Ridge High School
The safety and security of all students at Fossil Ridge High School is our first priority. Our staff, students, and parents work together collaboratively to help create a safe school environment. We provide continuous supervision and monitoring of our school grounds and learning spaces both during the school day and during extracurricular events. We have a state-of-the-art video surveillance system installed throughout the school to give us real-time footage. We have implemented safety procedures and practice these procedures regularly with our students and staff to increase our response time in case of an emergency. Most importantly, we actively encourage everyone associated with Fossil Ridge High School to reach out to our safety officers, our administration, and our staff if they have concerns or possible information related to the safety of our school.
Our expectation at Fossil Ridge High School is that anyone who enters our building is identified by wearing proper PSD identification badges. This includes our students, staff and all PSD district personnel. We expect visitors to our school to be properly identified as well. All visitors must enter through the main front office, must sign in and must wear an issued visitor’s sticker/badge.
Visitors must call ahead to schedule a time to meet with the appropriate staff member. Visits should not extend past one hour and are limited to once per week to minimize disruptions to the educational process and to respect the privacy of other students. Visitors are expected to wait in the main office for their host to meet them and escort them through the school. Our student aide(s) at the front desk can also escort visitors through the school. Any visitor not wearing proper identification or traveling unescorted within our school will be immediately asked to return to the main office to follow our established safety process.
