Campus supervisors work to maintain safety on campus

Campus supervisors Mark Hernandez and Jeanine Sevilla.

The school staff plays a large role in the safety of Saratoga students on campus.
Jeanine Sevilla, one of the school’s two campus supervisors, says that the school takes many precautionary measures to ensure the students’ safety. Some of these measures include making sure students do not loiter during class time, reporting suspicious persons on campus, requiring visitors to wear special badges on campus, and checking the parking lots regularly.

“It’s kind of like a second nature,” said Sevilla. “If we see someone suspicious, we automatically report it.”

Mark Hernandez, the other campus supervisor, says that safety for students is his paramount concern.

“Mainly I watch over students, and look over campus behavior, but also make sure students maintain safe behavior at school,” said Hernandez.

Hernandez also discussed how he ensures that uninvited persons stay off campus.

“We need to look out for dangerous people in our school community,” said Hernandez. “Any suspicions are noted.”

Hernandez and Sevilla keep in touch with the Sherriff’s Department to note any unusual circumstances.
“We make sure to stay communicated, and of course work together to protect students,” said Hernandez.

According to Sevilla, dangerous situations at Saratoga High are not common, and a real threat to safety at the school rarely occurs.

“We feel so secure, and I think we do a good job keeping the school safe,” Sevilla said. “But nowadays, we just have to be cautious.”
