Safety & Emergency Preparedness
Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) approaches safety with an overabundance of caution and while we have plans and processes in place to mitigate and manage emergency situations, please know that school safety is not something we can do alone. The partnership and support that we have with our local law enforcement and our school community is critical.
If You See Something, Say Something - Don't Spread It - Report It!
This is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campus, including parents, guardians and guests to be empowered to report any unusual or suspicious activity to a site administrator, employee or police.
COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL SITE SAFETY PLANS
Injury and Illness Prevention Program
It is the policy of Pittsburg Unified School District (the District) to protect the health and safety of employees, students, guests, and the environment. The goal can be met through the development of a comprehensive and effective environmental health and safety plan known as the Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) that endeavors to eliminate unsafe conditions and minimize the impact of hazardous situations. Such a program can benefit the District and community by reducing illness and injury to students and personnel, preventing property damage, and preserving the environment. The District will make every reasonable effort to promote, create, and maintain a safe and healthy environment. This can only be realized by adherence to basic safety principles, sound management practices, and compliance with applicable federal, safe, and local codes, laws, and standards.
