An important message about safety from HUSD’s Chief of Police, Steve Hinojos and Superintendent, David Olney.
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. By working, talking, and listening together, especially with our students, we will continue to keep our school community safe.
Here are some ideas of things you can do to help:
- Take a moment to discuss this important issue with your children.
- Stay connected and monitor social media activities in which your children are engaged.
- Reach out to your principal, superintendent, the local police, school police or other trained professionals if you see or hear behavior that has potential for causing self-harm or harm to others.
- Ensure that if you own a firearm, it is kept in an approved storage locker. We participate in the Project ChildSafe program which means we have free gun locks available for your use at home. If you need one, please stop by the Hesperia Unified School District Police Department.
- Make sure that your children do not have access to firearms while visiting homes of friends or relatives.
- If you hear or see something, say something! Please report safety concerns to your school or local law enforcement. The Hesperia Unified School Police Department has an anonymous 24-hour Hotline for reporting safety concerns, (760) 662-5378.
