GRIZZLY NEWS

Principal's Corner

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

           Students at Gilchrist School will be participating in various activities throughout the month of October to raise awareness and increase understanding of how to respond to bullying and cyberbullying. On Monday, October 2nd, students K-12 participated in a worldwide campaign effort called “Stomp Out Bullying”. The first Monday of October is designated around the world as a “Blue Out”. Students were all given “Stomp Out Bullying “t-shirts for their participation in the event. A peer mentoring program was held in conjunction to the blue out. A lunch buddy program designed to pair high school students with the elementary students was held where students signed pledges promising to take a stand against bullying.

            On Friday, October 6th, students 7-12 participated in a Point Break workshop designed for students to not only hear about, but participate in experiences to discuss tolerance, understanding, respect, and reconciliation. There will be other events throughout the month and school year in which students will be given the opportunity to discuss ways where they can be proactive in stopping bullying and cyberbullying.

SCHOOL NEWS


            Thank you to all the families who have called in, or written notes to let us know that their child will be missing, or has been out absent from school. Calling in helps our office tremendously. Oregon attendance law states there are four reasons a student may be excused from school: 1) student illness 2) serious illness of a student’s immediate family member 3) extreme emergency 4) Principal has pre-approved the absence when satisfactory arrangements are made in advance of the absence. Let’s aim to “Strive for Five”, meaning to set a goal to be absent no more than five times in a school year. We want to partner with you to make on time school attendance a healthy habit for your student.


Safety

            Gilchrist School implements the Standard Response Protocol in its school safety plan for critical incident response. The SRP is a classroom response enhancement for critical incidents, designed to provide consistent, clear, shared language and actions among all students, staff and first responders. The SRP is simple. It’s based on four actions. Each action is followed by a directive.

“LOCKOUT” – “Secure the perimeter”. When the threat is outside the building. It’s used to safeguard the occupants in the building.
“LOCKDOWN” – “Locks, Lights, Out of Sight” – When a threat is inside of the building. It’s used to secure individual rooms and keep occupants quiet and in place.
“EVACUATE” – Followed by a location – Used to move people from one location to a different location in or out of the building.
“SHELTER” – Followed by hazard and safety strategy – Used for group and self-protection. Gilchrist students and staff will conduct trainings throughout the school year using the Standard Response Protocol.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please feel free to contact the school.
