While some events at the School are open to the public, at all other times only individuals who are members of the Rutgers Preparatory School community are permitted on campus. All others must secure administrative permission and must be escorted by a member of the faculty or staff.
Frequently on campus, our community will conduct safety or security drills.
These drills include:
Fire Drill: This drill addresses the need to quickly exit buildings in the case of a potential fire.
Lockdown Drill: This drill addresses scenarios where an intruder is on campus. Staff, faculty, and students remain confined to a room or area within a building with specific procedures including locking doors, closing or opening windows and shades, and seeking cover.
Shelter-in-place Drill: In the event of a wild animal, gas cloud, severe weather or other factors that would require staying inside, all staff, faculty and students remain in the building that they occupy at the time of the event and remain there until the all clear is received. For any person or persons outside at the time of the event, this situation becomes a Reverse Evacuation Drill and they would immediately enter the nearest building and wait for the all clear.
Evacuation Drill: This drill addresses scenarios which would require the need for all occupants of a school building to orderly and safely evacuate. We practice the need to evacuate to different assembly locations depending on the situation.The School also occasionally engages in Full Scale Exercises using different scenarios and involving the local First Responders which consist of the police and fire departments, and rescue squad.
