In keeping with its commitment to student safety, last October PPS joined school districts across the state in using the SafeOregon Tip Line. SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. It provides a secure means for anyone to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations, such as threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation or self-harm.
Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways, including:
- The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website
- The SafeOregon website.
- A live call/text (844-472-3367)
- An email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The mobile app that can be downloaded from your Smart Phone via iTunes or Google Play
Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond. Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family. Remind your students: If you see or hear something, say somethingâ€”immediately.
