Supporting families with information
June 10, 2014
We wish to provide you with information and support in light of the shooting Tuesday morning at Reynolds High School in the city of Troutdale, outside Portland.
Our students remained safe and supported during this incident and will continue to be supported at school in the coming days. However, we know that such an incident raises concerns and questions.
Portland Public Schools has detailed emergency plans for all schools. Schools hold frequent drills so that students can practice what to do in case of a potential emergencies. Our Portland Police Bureau School Resource Officers provide enormous support with student safety, including forming relationships with students to prevent incidents from ever occurring.
In the case of an emergency at one or more of our schools, PPS communicates directions to families by phone in all supported languages. We also communicate via email, text and social media. We use the family contact information provided on students’ registration forms. Please keep this information up to date in your school office.
Your student may wish to talk about what happened at Reynolds or other similar situations. Let them process their feelings while also offering reassurance about the work their school is doing to support their safety. Remind students that they can also help by always letting an adult know if they see something that seems suspicious. Communities create safe places by working together.
Sometimes these incidents bring up memories of other difficult things a student has experienced. If your student needs counseling assistance, please talk to your principal to connect with resources. The Multnomah County Crisis Line can also help at 503-998-4888.
The PPS Language Line staff members are available to help families who speak limited English. Please use the following phone numbers:
中文 | Chinese
Русский | Russian
Thank you for your attention. We know that you will also support your student in continuing to feel positive about the end of their school year and their personal accomplishments.
