School Safety & Security

Disaster Preparedness & School Security

Yearly Rolando Park reviews our Comprehensive School Safety Plan. This plan includes the school's safety plan, district plan and emergency procedures addressing disasters and criminal acts which may threaten the safety of students and staff. In the event of an emergency, students will be released only to parents or someone authorized by the parent on the registration card.

Monthly school wide security drills are conducted to help prepare students and staff for possible emergencies or disasters.

We ask community members to call school police at 619-291-7678 if anything suspicious is seen or heard at the school campus during non-school hours. If you become aware of anything suspicious during school hours immediately contact the school office at 619-344-3600.

Campus Gate Security

For the safety of students, all gates are locked during school hours except for the main gate. The main entry gate is closed five minutes after the morning bell and reopened three minutes before the afternoon dismissal bell.

Driving To and From School

Traffic at Rolando Park before and after school is of serious concern. If you drive your children to and from school, please, for everyone's safety, observe the following rules:

  • drop off and pick up students on the dirt field in the space provided
  • observe the 5 miles per hour speed limit
  • do not stop at a red curb to pick up children or double park along the road
  • Only let students out on the right side of the car
  • everyone must wear a seatbelt
  • following the directions of the Safety Patrol
  • for student safety, no parking south of Room 23
  • all vehicles must stop when buses are loading and unloading

It is especially important that the buses have access to their loading and unloading areas before and after school. Please do not leave cars unattended in a lane of traffic for any reason.


Skateboards, rollerblades, scooters, or roller skate type devices (shoes) are not allowed at Rolando Park at any time, including before, after school or weekends. Violators will have their skateboards, rollerblades, scooters, or roller skate type devices confiscated and may receive a police citation.


Bicycles may be ridden to school only if students are in Grades 4 or 5. Students must walk the bicycle to or from the nearest gate to the bike rack and students must wear a helmet. Bicycles are to be licensed and securely locked in the bike racks. The student assumes all liability for theft, damage, or loss of use, to any bicycle, equipment, or article left on it. Bicycle safety rules govern travel to and from school.


Pets are not allowed on the school campus. Please leave all pets at home.

Safety To and From School

Parents are asked to caution their children to cross at the cross walk only. It is dangerous to cross at other places, as cars can create a safety hazard. Students should always cross the street at corners, never in the middle of the street. Parents are asked to model this behavior. Please be careful when driving down our narrow road and please adhere to the "No Parking" signs.

Lost Articles

Lost articles will be returned if they are marked with the owner's full name. Sack lunches, lunch boxes, and removable garments are most often lost, and should be labeled with student's first and last name and room number. The lost and found cart is located near the auditorium. Lost eyeglasses, keys, jewelry, money, and valuables are kept in the school office.
