Safety is one of Omak School District’s top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, we’ve taken an important step that I want to share with you.

Omak School District is now using SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:

1. Phone: 206.557.3622

2. Text: Text your tip to 206.557.3622

3. Email: 1687@alert1.us

4. Web: http://1687.alert1.us

 

You and your child can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism or any safety issue you're concerned about through SafeSchools Alert. Save the number in your phone so you can use it whenever you need. In case of an emergency, still call 911! Every tip SafeSchools Alert receives about Omak School District is immediately logged in the system and our administration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.

Together, using SafeSchools Alert, we can make Omak School District a safer place to work and learn!
