Salem-Keizer Public Schools Joins SafeOregon Confidential Tip Line

posted Mar 13, 2018, 1:58 PM by Salem Keizer

Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) has officially joined SafeOregon, a confidential tip line that gives our kids, parents, schools and communities a confidential way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.

Salem-Keizer Public Schools has a sophisticated and proactive intervention system in place for timely interventions. These include the SKPS Office of Behavioral Learning, the Office of Safety and Risk Management, and our Threat Response System that offers step-by-step protocols on preventing and controlling potentially dangerous situations.

The SafeOregon tip line adds an additional resource to ensure students and staff have a confidential avenue for reporting and bolsters SKPS’ relationship with law enforcement. This program is run and managed by the Oregon State Police and has proven to prevent acts of violence.

“Since the SafeOregon began its statewide program, we’ve seen it grow as a resource for the communities we serve,” said John Van Dreal, SKPS Director of Safety and Risk Management Services. “We know that what keeps our children safe is an open line of communication, and SafeOregon provides that communication in a confidential way.”

All tips reported by members of the Salem-Keizer community– including parents, students and employees – in regard to school and student safety will be closely investigated by the Oregon State Police and SKPS. The safety of our students, staff and volunteers is without question, our highest priority.

We encourage all parents to download the SafeOregon App on their phones, and their child’s phone as well. Individuals may also report a tip by calling or sending a text to 844-472-3367 anytime. Tips also can be emailed to tip@safeoregon.com. For more information, go to www.safeoregon.com.

Oficialmente las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer (SKPS, por sus siglas en inglés) participarán en SafeOregon, una línea directa, informativa y confidencial que ofrece a los estudiantes, padres, escuelas y comunidades un medio confidencial para presentar denuncias de amenazas a la seguridad o posibles actos de violencia.

Las Escuelas Públicas de Salem-Keizer tienen establecido un sistema de intervención complejo y diligente para intervenciones oportunas. En este sistema se incluyen los diferentes departamentos de SKPS: el Departamento de Aprendizaje Conductual, el Departamento para la Gestión de la Seguridad y Prevención de Riesgos y nuestro Sistema de Respuesta a Amenazas, el cual contiene un método paulatino y detallado para prevenir y controlar situaciones potencialmente peligrosas.

La línea informativa SafeOregon es un recurso adicional que garantiza a los estudiantes y al personal escolar un medio confidencial para hacer denuncias y fortalece la relación de SKPS con las agencias policiales. Este programa lo dirige y lo gestiona la Policía Estatal de Oregon y ha demostrado prevenir actos de violencia.

“Desde que SafeOregon inició su programa a nivel estatal, hemos visto que es un recurso que se ha expandido en las comunidades a las que servimos”, dijo John Van Dreal, Director del departamento para la gestión de la seguridad y prevención de riesgos de SKPS. “Sabemos que lo que mantiene a nuestros niños seguros es una línea abierta de comunicación y SafeOregon ofrece esa comunicación de una forma confidencial”.

La Policía Estatal de Oregon y SKPS investigarán cuidadosamente todas las denuncias hechas por los miembros de la comunidad de Salem-Keizer, los padres, los estudiantes y los empleados con referencia a la seguridad en las escuelas o la seguridad de los estudiantes. La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y voluntarios es sin duda nuestra mayor prioridad.

Instamos a todos los padres a que descarguen la aplicación SafeOregon en sus teléfonos celulares y también en el teléfono de su estudiante. Las personas también pueden presentar una denuncia al llamar o al enviar un mensaje de texto al 844-472-3367 en cualquier momento. Asimismo, pueden enviar las denuncias por correo electrónico a tip@safeoregon.com. Consulte la página web www.safeoregon.com.

Wright Elementary School participated in our 2nd annual clothing drive. It was a classroom competition to see who could bring in the most pounds of clothes. It was a huge success! As a school we brought in over 5,000 pounds of clothing and earned our school over $1000! Thank you Value Village for supporting our school and letting us know about this wonderful opportunity to donate unwanted clothes while earning money for our school. It was a ton (actually two and a half tons) of fun.

Great job Wright Falcons!

Yesterday, January 10th, 2018, the staff and students at Wright Elementary School participated in a lockdown drill. Students were told by staff that we would be practicing being safe just as we do for other drills, prior to this drill beginning. The purpose of this drill was to prepare our students and staff for any emergency that may occur where it may be necessary for us to lock down classrooms and/or the entire building. We conduct drills because we want students and staff members to be safe as well as to develop an awareness of their roles in these various scenarios. Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding today’s lockdown drill.
