Superintendent Update

    March/April 2018

    I was hoping for an early spring, but that doesn’t look like it is going to happen.  Regardless, we cannot control the weather or many other things that happen to us.   We can only control our own attitudes and responses and so I am working on a more positive response to our recent snow events! 

     Safety is an important priority in our district.  In an effort to improve school safety, Trout Lake School District is partnering with Safe School Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, parents, and staff to submit safety concerns to administration in 4 different ways.

    1. Phone: 774.2607
    2. Text: Text your tip to 509.774.2607
    3. Email: 1643@alert1.us
    4. Web: http://1643.alert1.us

    You and your child can safely and quickly report your safety concerns regarding bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, or any safety issue that you are concerned about.   

    Every safety tip is immediately logged into the system and Trout Lake School District administration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action.  Tips can also be submitted anonymously if you prefer. 

    We have been challenged in recent weeks by the slogan “If you see something, say something.” Safe Schools Alert is an opportunity to put this into action.  Together, using Safe Schools Alert, we can make our school a safer place to work and learn! 

    Thanks for your support!
