    Health & Safety: The security at Silver Bluff High School is very important. The teachers and staff are very consistent with wearing ID's and making sure that the students have their ID's on as well. They make sure that visitors sign in and out, and they also have students who have early dismissal sign out. There are cameras in the parking lot, hall ways, and buses to insure the students safety.
