School Time Safety Line

posted Nov 24, 2014, 10:10 AM by Amber Kessinger   [ updated Nov 24, 2014, 10:44 AM ]

La Grande Middle School has started a new plan for school safety. On October 10, 2014 LMS activated the “School Time Safety Line”. Students can report issues like vandalism, thefts, potential fights, bullying, harassment, drugs, or weapons in school by calling or texting the designated phone number, 541-632-6665. Their calls or texts will remain anonymous. We hope that this new system will encourage students to report important information during school hours (7:30am-3:30pm). Since it’s inception, the “School Time Safety Line” has proven to be very helpful. Please contact the school if you have questions.
