Report an Incident or a Safety Concern
Hood River School District encourages you to use our statewide school safety reporting system. To submit an incident or safety tip, just use one of the reporting options below (if you are reporting an emergency, please call 911). All tips go immediately to a tip line technician 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Tips are promptly analyzed and forwarded to designated personnel who can provide further assistance in resolving reported incidents.
How does the Safe Oregon Tip Line work?
Students, parents, and community members can access teh Safe Oregon system through a link on our school web site or they may go directly to the safeoregon.com web site. Tips can be submitted through the web form on the Safe ORegon web site, or by text, email, live call and mobile app.
Why is there a need for a tip line system?
The number one reason why children do not report is the fear of retaliation from their peers. The Safe Oregon Tip Line can be accessed from teh privacy of a phone, home compter or other Internet equipped device, eliminating the possiblity of being identified by another student and thus, increasing the likelihood that a school safety threat would go unreported.
