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.
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.
Learn more about First Step on the First Step website.
First Step is made possible thanks to the Bend Police Department, Lines for Life, SafeOregon and many other incredible community partners. Thank you families and have a safe spring break!
