Salem-Keizer Public Schools Joins SafeOregon Confidential Tip Line

posted Mar 13, 2018, 10:42 AM 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.

Safety Reminders From the Principal

posted Mar 6, 2018, 4:00 PM by Brush College

Hello Brush College Families!

Student safety is a priority for all of our staff here at Brush College.  We strive to do our best to ensure that students are safe throughout the day, including before/after school.  As we are looking out for the safety of others, here are a couple of reminders about our morning and afternoon procedures.  If your child is being dropped off prior to the start of the school day and picked up at the end of the school day, please do so in the upper parking lot loop, near the school track.  Please do not block or park in the turning lanes to pick up students. There is no supervision in the back parking lot, so please use the upper loop to drop off and pick up your child.  The front area of the school is designated for school buses only before/after school. 

If your child is being dropped off after the start of the school day, please drop off your child in front of the school so that they may check in at the front office.  All visitors, including parents, must check in at the main office.  For the security of all in our school, you may be asked the reason for your visit.  Thank you for your support.
