Gratitude for our School Resource Officers

Our schools rolled out the red carpet for SRO Appreciation Day

Article Date: Feb 16, 2024

The week of February 12, Bend-La Pine Schools had the honor of showing our SROs our sincere gratitude for everything they give to our schools!

Schools throughout the District presented their SROs with gifts, goodies, thank you cards, and more. It's all to show gratitude to these dedicated individuals who keep our schools safe and join our school communities to form meaningful relationships with students and staff.

At the School Board meeting on February 13, the school board and safety staff also honored the team from the Bend Police Department and Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. The Bend Tech Academy Business Leadership students showed their appreciation and support with one-of-a-kind t-shirts, designed and printed by BTA students.

Check out more photos from the week and a very special video from Pilot Butte Middle School.

Our schools are truly richer places because of our SROs. THANK YOU!
