SF schools say safety protocols are in place in regards to Oregon college shooting

Students and faculty at City College of San Francisco were among those horrified by the Oregon shooting, and school leaders were quick to assure the community that emergency protocols are in place.

Though no special training was scheduled at CCSF Thursday because of the shooting, the 22 police officers and nine security guards that patrol the school’s eight campuses regularly train for such events, CCSF spokesman Jeff Hamilton said.

He noted that the community is always on the lookout for warning signs.

“We work hard every day to be vigilant about emergencies in any kind of situation that affects our students,” Hamilton said. “We are in this same line of work, as community colleges,” he added of the Oregon shooting. “It’s deeply disturbing to us, and we feel terribly for the students and families affected by this.”

San Francisco Unified School District Superintendent Richard Carranza also expressed his condolences and said the district is ready to respond to those in need of support because of the shooting.

“We are grieving with everyone affected by the needless violence this morning in Roseburg, Oregon. Our thoughts, prayers and deep sympathy go out to the families of the victims and the students and staff who survived this traumatic event,” Carranza said in a statement.

“Our school staff are on alert to be aware of the emotional needs of students. Our city and district work closely together to immediately respond to schools and provide support needed to ensure safe and secure schools.”
