black patent doc martens Reminder to use SafeOregon the statewide School Safety Tip Line for concerns about safety
Superintendent Travis Hampton, know the tip line works. We seen other students report concerns about their friends and we gotten their friends help. We been able to get in front of safety concerns. Sometimes students might see or hear something that might be confusing or they are unsure what to do with the information but they do know something isn right. That where the tip line can help. Students have the opportunity to provide information to a trusted adult that can look into the situation and take it from there.
The Oregon State Police also encourages students to have conversations with adults around them about anything they are concerned about. Students have an important voice in their own safety, and the safety of their fellow students and school. But, the tip line gives a voice to those students who don feel comfortable going to an adult for whatever reason or they might be anxious or afraid.

Background: SafeOregon became Law through HB 4075 (2016),
as a result of recommendations from the Oregon Task Force on School Safety. During the 2014 session, the Oregon State Legislature passed House Bill 4087, to establish a Task Force on School Safety. The bill, created a working group to examine steps to improve safety and security at schools across the state. As specified in HB 4087, the task force is made up of representatives from the legislature, the governor office,
as well as the education and public safety communities. A complete roster of the task force members appears at the left side of this page.
