Safety and Security

Safety at Rancho Solano

The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is a top priority at Rancho Solano Preparatory School.  We have in place several safety measures to ensure a secure environment for our students to grow and learn.

  • The Sky Alert emergency alerting system is in place for emergency parent, faculty, and staff notification and communication
  • PAS cards are in place at the Lower School Campus to ensure safe arrival and dismissal
  • Crisis procedures are located in each building and classroom
  • Quarterly lock down drills are conducted with law enforcement support and input at both campus locations
  • Monthly fire drills are conducted at both locations
  • Evaluation of traffic patterns, gates, and other security apparatus is on going and continuous
  • We have full-time RN's on each campus, trained in handling emergency medical situations
  • We have the majority of our faculty trained in CPR and CPR training is offered to everyone (with licensing only requiring one trained person on campus at all times - we exceed in this area)

Security at Rancho Solano

Security is one of our top priorities at Rancho Solano.  We have taken steps to provide our community with the safest and most secure environment while preserving the warm and welcoming RS experience. 

  • We partner with Pride Security, a locally owned and operated security company of highly skilled guards, trained in the protection of people, who are located at both campuses
  • We are a weapons-free school. (We do not encourage weapons or firearms on campus for any reason - except of course in the event of an emergency)
  • The Business Office enforces security protocols for identification when calling about a student or an account to ensure data security and privacy
  • All faculty, staff, and vendors that are on campus or interact with children are required to hold an AZ Level One or greater finger print card as well as undergo (and pass) a background check and drug screen.
