School Site Safety
As part of the District's preparedness planning for student and staff safety during emergency situations, a District wide Disaster Drill is conducted annually in October. In addition, evacuation and fire drills are conducted monthly.
Our Disaster Drills involve evacuation of all students and personnel as well as any visitors, to designated areas for roll call. This helps us test response procedures under a simulated emergency condition.
For more information, call (714) 228-3142.
CRISIS HOTLINE: We have a recorded hotline that will become active in the case of a drill or disaster situation. The line will be updated hourly with updates.
RAPTOR Visitor Management System
Centralia School District is pleased to announce that we use the RAPTOR Visitor Management System at all of our school sites to build on the district’s program of safety and security for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is on our school sites at all times and the RAPTOR system will allow us to do that. The RAPTOR system will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.
Upon entering a school office, visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The RAPTOR system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our buildings. It is important to note that the RAPTOR system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. Additional visitor data from the driver’s license is not gathered nor is the system connected to any other system such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. Therefore, any other information on the ID is not scanned by the system and is not accessible to any of the users. Once entry is approved, RAPTOR will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit.
A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork. In the event that a person does not have identification, he/she can still be given access to the building, but will be escorted by a school staff member.If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete an Online volunteer application, through the RAPTOR system. Volunteers are screened and are required to submit proof of a current TB test with their application. You can now upload copies of your TB Test results into the RAPTOR system.
All chaperones on student study trips must complete the RAPTOR application process and have TB clearance.
