     SafeOregon

    If parents are ever concerned about a student’s well-being, feel free to reach out to your principal. It is important to keep your lines of communication open and maintain strong partnerships between students, families, staff, and other resources.

    SafeOregon also is an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools.

    (Students should also know that intentionally providing a false report is a serious offense.)
