Campus Safety & Security

Welcome to Campus Safety & Security

The Campus Safety and Security department works with all members of our community to ensure that our campus is a safe environment. The office coordinates the School's emergency response and safety protocols, which includes managing alarm and door access systems. Safety and Security answers calls coming into the School's switchboard, and coordinates with the local first responders such as fire and police departments, ambulance services, and the 911 responders.

Emergency Notification System

Hotchkiss has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety on a mass notification and alert system that allows the School to communicate important information to students, faculty, and staff during emergencies, serious weather conditions, and campus wide events. The system has the ability to send email, text, and voice (phone) messages to those with Hotchkiss network accounts. Hotchkiss parents and guests can choose to opt-in to receive text-only (SMS) emergency alerts.
