Safety of students and staff is a primary concern of Lompoc Valley Middle School. The school is in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to hazardous materials and state earthquake standards. The school has a disaster-preparedness plan, which includes steps for ensuring student and staff safety during a disaster. Fire and disaster drills are conducted on a regular basis. All visitors must check in at the school office and wear a visitor’s badge while on school grounds. During lunch and before and after school, teachers, administrators, and lunchtime aides supervise students and school grounds, including the cafeteria and athletic fields, to ensure a safe and orderly environment. In 1998, the Comprehensive Safety Plan was developed by the district in consultation with local law enforcement in order to comply with Senate Bill 187 of 1997. The plan provides students and staff a means to ensure a safe and orderly learning environment. Components of the Comprehensive Safety Plan include child-abuse reporting procedures, teacher notification of dangerous-pupil procedures, disaster-response procedures, procedures for safe ingress and egress from school, sexual harassment policies, and dress code guidelines. The plan was last updated and reviewed with school staff in September 2019. A copy of the plan is available to the public at the school and district offices.
