The SafeOregon Tip Line Aims to Increase Student Safety
In keeping with our commitment to student safety, last October PPS joined school districts across the state in using the SafeOregon Tip Line. We want to remind you about this important resource.
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:
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 something – immediately. Let’s work together to keep our community safe.

Who doesn't want greener, healthier schools for our children - but can this be done on a budget? The Portland Green Schools Committee in association with Energy Trust of Oregon has assembled a panel of key stakeholders experienced in the planning, designing, engineering and managing of Oregon K-12 school projects to discuss "Sustainable Schools - Limited Budgets, Maximum Benefits."
As Lincoln High and other schools in the Portland Metro area plan for renovations or new facilities, the need for these schools to take a more sustainable approach while being challenged by tight budgets and a growing student population is at an all-time high.
This diverse panel will take on the challenging topic of building green and healthy schools utilizing limited
budgets with maximum benefits! Panelists will provide real world examples of measures and decisions that have gotten positive results working within tight budgets. Q&A to follow.
Parents, teachers & students are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is FREE, but please register: http://bit.ly/2Djxceg

Could you pass the U.S. citizenship test? Maybe. Maybe not. Some questions may surprise people who were born and raised in this country, and certainly could be a challenge for newcomers. That’s why eight Roosevelt High School students spend their Wednesday evenings teaching the ins and outs of the test to more than 50 immigrants through the Mission: Citizen program.
Lincoln ran away with the girls team title, and Benson used a strong performance in the sprints to win the boys championship in the Portland Interscholastic League track and field championships at Franklin High School on Friday.
