SAFETY OUTREACH FOR STUDENTS PROGRAM
The SAFETY OUTREACH FOR STUDENTS PROGRAM (SOS) is a two to five day intervention program designed to teach students about the dangers of engaging in activities that include bullying, harassment, fighting, hazing, and gang involvement. Students will examine how these behaviors can be harmful to themselves and / or others and how the behaviors affect school campus safety. Students will explore and develop new coping skills, learn new strategies for fair conflict resolution, and discuss positive alternatives to unhealthy behaviors by participating in verbal discussion, self-reflection, conflict mediation, and life skills activities.
The goal of SOS is to help students understand how being respectful to others and accepting of others differences creates a positive and safe school environment. In addition, students can use their newly acquired knowledge to help influence their friends and peers in a favorable manner both in and out of school.
Once a student has completed the program he or she will be presented with a Certificate of Completion to be given to their site administrator. Students will also be offered ongoing support depending on each individual’s needs.

Escondido Union High School District

Your child’s safety is important
In light of tragic incidents that have occurred in our community during the last two years, we want to take this opportunity to encourage you to once again take the time to discuss safety issues with your child. Please remind them to pay special attention to their surroundings, stay in well-lighted areas, and encourage them to not walk alone.
Any suspicious activity should be reported immediately to a responsible adult or the Escondido Police Department at (760) 830-4722.
Providing a safe learning environment for all students remains of utmost importance to us as parents, educators, and community members. Together we will make a difference.
