Safety & Crisis Information


Remind - The quickest way to get information in the event of an emergency is to subscribe to our Remind text message service.  Remind is a one-way text message application that allows us to quickly get important information out to our families.  We only use Remind for safety information, so you will not be inundated with general school announcements. You can subscribe to our Remind service by clicking here: Subscribe to TPHS Remind

In Touch - In the event of an emergency, we will send information by phone and e-mail through the In Touch delivery system.  Please be sure we have your correct contact information in our Aeries system.

Twitter/Facebook - Another quick way to get crisis information is through social media.  If you have not done so already, please "like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

Emergency PreparednessTop of Page

In conjunction with the SDUHSD, TPHS conducts regular emergency drills including lock-down, evacuation and earthquake drills.  Our drills are conducted with the support and input of the SDPD.  All drills are reviewed, and we follow-up with feedback about what worked and what needs improvement.  The school has a detailed "Comprehensive Safe Schools Plan" in place, and staff members are regularly updated on important safety issues both on campus and in our community.

 Additional Information:

  • We have a close relationship with the SDPD Northwest Division and the juvenile resources department.  Whenever we have a need, they respond promptly and diligently.  They are often here for no other reason than to get to know our students and staff and build a relationship.

  • We utilize several communication tools including Remind, InTouch, Facebook, and Twitter so that we can connect with the community quickly and easily in the event of an emergency on campus.

  • We have a highly visible staff and we are aware if something, or someone, looks out of place.

How YOU Can Help:

If you are aware of a safety issue on campus, please let administration know as soon as possible.  You can contact Assistant Principal Tracy Olander at 858.755.0125 ext. 2093, or by e-mail.

It is also important to talk to your student about safety issues, and be aware of the challenges our teens face.  Encourage your student to talk to a teacher, a counselor, or other staff member if they have concerns, or questions about anything on campus.  Remember to remind students that if they see something or hear something, they need to say something.

If you need to report something, but would prefer to remain anonymous, please use one of the following resources:

  • We Tip (i-800-47-DRUGS) - Report information regarding the sale of drugs on campus.

  • Crime Stoppers - Annonymously report information regarding past and potential crime.

  • Students Speaking Out - Make an anonymous phone, text or web tip about  dangerous activity or crime at school or in the community and be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
