Student Safety

Please remind your students to wear a helmet if they are riding bikes, scooters, or skateboards to school. They also need to walk them on the sidewalk entrance to the school. We have new bike racks for scooter and bicycles in front of the campus.

Also, we ask that you please drive slowly by the crosswalks in the parking lot, we have had some parents not notice our crossing guards and speed through the crosswalks. Student safety is our priority!!

San Onofre STEM labs

STEM Labs at San Onofre School

With our new school, we are fortunate to house five STEM Labs. Two of these labs are dedicated to science. One for Grades 4-6 and the other one is for Grades 7-8. Grades 4-8 have a separate STEM Lab for robotics, 3D printing, drones, and a Makerspace. Grades 1-3 have a STEM Lab for science, robotics, and engineering. Our Kindergarten/TK classes have their own STEM Lab for science, robotics, and engineering.

These labs will work in tandem to develop critical thinking skills, creativity, perseverance, and problem-solving skills that our students need in order to be successful in their futures. Our TK-8th grade students will have weekly STEM/Science lessons in our labs or classrooms.

Our STEM Labs provide hands-on materials for science and math. Theses materials provide our students with opportunities to learn about our world and to apply this knowledge to real-life problems.

We can't wait to see the amazing learning and products of our scientists, mathematicians, and inventors!

Student Confidentiality and Threat Assessment Protocol

Our students’ safety is our number one priority. Our students and families confidentiality is also of utmost priority, especially since all students here are minors. When a situation arises, the administration will investigate any incident to the fullest extent and notify law enforcement if need be. The Fallbrook District has a "Threat Assessment" protocol that all employees have been trained on. It there was a Substantive Threat to your child you would be contacted immediately. If there was a"Lock-Down" procedure you would be notified immediately. When a threat is transient in nature, we only notify the parents of the children who are directly affected. Maintaining students’ confidentiality did not impact your child’s safety before, during or after the incident. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.
