Families — If you haven't yet downloaded the First Step app, we hope you'll take a minute to do so now. This app is available on all student iPads in grades 6-12.

It is our hope that families will spend a few minutes familiarizing themselves with this new tool and talking to your children about it. Inside First Step you will find resources like, “3 Ways to Help a Friend,” “Getting Through Today,” contacts for free counseling and two featured resources: SafeOregon and YouthLine.

Resources include:

Free Counseling and Support — connect with links to local resources

SafeOregon — students can report anything from vandalism to theft to cyberbullying via text or phone, email, or online

YouthLine — a free and confidential teen-to-teen help line.
