Student safety is our absolute highest priority. Considerable time, energy and funds have gone into strengthening safety and security measures at Fremont and throughout the District. Keeping our school safe is everyone's responsibility.
In some instances (intruder on campus, campus disturbances, possible chemical accidents, acts of terrorism, gunfire or other safety hazards reported by police, etc.), classrooms and offices can provide greater protection to students and staff rather than an evacuation from the building to the playground.
If we have a “lockdown” you will hear this announcement over the school intercom:
“May I have your attention. May I have your attention. This is not a drill. We are going into a lockdown. Please remain in the room you are in. If you are outside, please go to the nearest room. All doors must be closed and locked.“
Procedures (discuss with students, where appropriate):
At the end of the drill you will hear this announcement:
“All clear. The school is now unlocked.”
Students are required to keep hands or other body parts to themselves. Playing in a rough manner such as pushing or wrestling is unacceptable. Consequences of engaging in physical attacks or verbal threats may result in suspension.
The Board of Education prohibits sexual harassment of any student by another student, employee or other person in or from the District. Teachers shall discuss the policy with their students in age-appropriate ways and should assure them that they need not endure any form of sexual harassment. Any student who engages in sexual harassment in grades 4 through 6 is subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion from Glendale Unified School District.
Students will be suspended and may be expelled if they possess, sell or otherwise furnish any firearms, knife, explosive or other dangerous object. Children may not bring toys or replicas that look like real guns or knives, or anything else that looks like or could be mistaken for or used as a weapon. Possession of such objects is grounds for expulsion from school.
