On Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016, California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) will be conducting active shooter training exercises in conjunction with the San Marcos Fire Department, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and a number of other North County hospitals, fire and law enforcement agencies. Due to the increase of active shootings and recent tragic events such as those in San Bernardino, Calif.; Paris, France; Roseburg, Ore. and Colorado Springs, Colo., CSUSM has made it a priority to ensure the campus community is well prepared for an active shooter emergency.

The drills, which will take place in the University Student Union, will include front line hospital staff as well as law enforcement and first responder agencies. Participating agencies include the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, City of San Marcos Fire Department, City of Escondido Fire and Police Departments, Palomar Hospital, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and Rady Children’s Hospital.

Residents and motorists may notice emergency vehicles, including medical helicopters, ambulances, fire trucks and patrol cars on campus and in the surrounding community. Traffic control measures will be implemented throughout campus.  

“The safety and welfare of our campus community is our highest priority,” said Robert McManus, CSUSM chief of police. “Conducting and planning for this exercise will allow us to assess our emergency response, interagency coordination and recovery efforts after such an event.”

 

When:                 Wednesday, Jan. 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. First drill will take place from 9 am to 12 p.m., the second drill will take place from 1 to 4 p.m.

 

Where:                California State University San Marcos, University Student Union

A message from SAN MARCOS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

Dear San Marcos Families,

Given the situation in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I wanted to reassure all of our families that the San Marcos Unified School District is not aware of any threat to the schools in our district.

We are in constant communication with the San Diego County Sherriff’s Department – they have added additional patrols today as an added precaution. Additionally, all of our employees received a copy of the district’s protocol and procedures regarding bomb threats.

As always, safety is our highest priority, and we will do our upmost to ensure a safe environment for each of the students in our district.

Regards,

Kevin Holt, Ed.D
Superintendent
San Marcos Unified School District

Keeping Families Informed about School Safety

This message was sent to San Elijo Elementary School Families this afternoon. 
A message from SAN ELIJO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Hello SEES Families,

Today just before school started one of our students was approached by a stranger and offered candy multiple times on the trails near our back gate. The man did not touch the student but did interact with the student. The student’s parent was with the student the entire time. Both parent and student safely walked to our office to notify the office and call the sheriff.  At that time the school also called the sheriff and the entire campus went on a soft lockdown.  All doors were secure and instruction continued as the sheriff walked the trails.

Unfortunately, the man was not located.  He was identified wearing a light blue/gray t-shirt with plaid shorts. The man was medium height and built with graying hair.

All staff members were informed and put on alert today.  All classes had an age appropriate conversation about stranger danger and walking home with a buddy. This is also a great time as parents to have that conversation about stranger danger at home.  You can even have your students role play the actions that they would take.  Research indicates that students need to practice a scream so they can recognize how loud the scream should be.

The trails were walked multiple times by many staff members prior and during dismissal today to ensure students safety.

We are fortunate to live in a community with many adults walking to and from school to keep an eye on all of our children.

Thank you for your support!

Carolyn Kalicki and Jimmy Miringoff
SEES Administration

Package Theft – San Marcos
Be on the lookout for a woman who was caught on camera stealing packages in San Marcos. Someone who knows the suspect might recognize her and the getaway car.

The theft happened on Monday, August 10th just before 3:00 p.m. in the 1100 block of Ariana Road in San Marcos. The homeowner ordered several items on Amazon.com and when her packages didn’t arrive, she checked the delivery status of her order online. She discovered the items were actually delivered on August 10th. She checked video surveillance around her home and discovered the theft. She then called the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station.

The video shows a woman getting out of a four-door, white or gray older model Mercedes Benz with a sun roof. She walks up to the front door, stuffs UPS packages into a tote bag and gets back into the passenger side of the car. The suspect is described as a white female in her 30s with brown hair. She was wearing a black top and shorts.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department-Fireworks Safety

San_Diego_County_Sheriff_Department_Badge.svg

It’s a colorful and spectacular salute to our nation’s independence. Fireworks, however, can cause injuries and spark fires.

As the Fourth of July approaches, the Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson Unit is reminding San Diegans it’s illegal to possess and use fireworks in the county.

It’s also illegal to transport fireworks from elsewhere into San Diego County or to make homemade fireworks and explosives.

Hundreds of pounds of illegal fireworks are confiscated in the county each year. Items are collected at various points of entry or dropped off at Sheriff’s Stations or Substations, as well as fire and police stations.

For your safety, the Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson Unit routinely dispose of fireworks and other hazardous items.

Under California law, illegal fireworks include sky rockets, bottle rockets, roman candles, aerial shells, firecrackers and other types that explode, go into the air, or move on the ground in an uncontrollable manner.

Those convicted of possessing and/or using fireworks could be fined up to $50,000 and sent to prison or jail for up to one year. Fines can be significantly increased depending on the amount of property loss or if human suffering is caused by a fire set.

A Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) study shows eight people were killed and more than 11,000 thousand were injured while handling fireworks across the country in 2013.

Children under the age of five suffered the most fireworks‐related injuries.

Let’s leave the fireworks to the professionals. Don’t allow children to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event. Some may still be hot or ignited and can explode at any time.
