Campuswide Lockdown Drill Is February 9
Classrooms, Buildings & Offices Campuswide
February 09, 2016 10 a.m.

Foothill College is conducting an active assailant lockdown drill on Tuesday, February 9, at 10 a.m. During the campuswide drill, students, faculty, staff and visitors are expected to act as if it is a real event. The campus alert system will be activated to notify you when to begin the drill. Please follow the verbal instructions given to you by Foothill faculty and staff.​

The alert will indicate, "This is only a drill.” When the drill is complete, you will also receive a notification. Due to the limitations of our current system, alerts may arrive at different times.

Lockdown/Barricade Procedures

  • Faculty, staff, students and campus visitors should position themselves out of the line-of-sight of doors and windows.
  • If safe to do so, check outside of rooms (i.e. hallways) for nearby students, and move them into classrooms.
  • Close and lock all doors and windows.
  • Cover doors and windows.
  • Move furniture to barricade doors. 
  • Turn off room/office lights and remain quiet.
  • Silence cell phones and other audible devices.
  • Individuals outside of buildings should move away from campus to a safe location.
  • When safe to do so, instructors should take attendance and report the status to the designee (include missing or additional students).

Our top priority at Foothill College is the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus. The test drill helps us to prepare for an emergency situation. Thank you for your cooperative and participation. If you have questions or concerns, call the Foothill-De Anza Police Department at (650) 949-7313.

Brown Is the New Green at Foothill
Help conserve water everyday on campus
September 11, 2015 - December 31, 2015

Foothill College continues to take action to ensure that we meet critical water conservation demands during California's record drought. Our campus achieved a 21.3-percent decrease in water usage—equal to more than 5 million gallons—last year*. Please help us conserve even more water on campus this year. 

Foothill College was recently named a recipient of a 2015 Silicon Valley Water Conservation Award for its innovative instruction and conservation projects, which were made possible with funding from the Schmidt Family Foundation and 11th Hour Project. Learn more about the college's conservation and sustainability efforts by reading our recently released sustainability management plan. For more water conservation tips, access SaveOurWater.com.
