    Dear Families,

     

    As we continue to strive for safe learning environments we are pleased to share that we will be participating in “Say Something” week.

     

    As part of the Sandy Hook Promise “Say Something” week (http://www.sandyhookpromise.org/saysomethingweek), a national youth violence prevention program, our school counselor Erin Block and school psychologist Farnosh Ghasemi will be hosting a resource table during the lunch period on Thursday, October 18th.  We will be discussing and offering resources for students on how to recognize warning signs, signals and threats of potential violence and the importance of taking action by telling a trusted adult.

     

    As a parent or caregiver, we know it can be hard to know how your child is feeling. Today, many teens and adolescents turn to print, video and online channels to express themselves, their thoughts and hopes, and their anxieties and personal feelings. Friends and peers are often the eyes and ears of a school and community, and may see and hear these communications, but may not always understand or know what to do with that information. Say Something teaches all of this. We encourage you to talk to your child about Say Something and share what they have learned. Not only will this conversation help you learn to recognize any signs in your own child’s expressions, but it demonstrates to them that you also take this subject seriously and can be one of the trusted adults your child turns to if they suspect someone may need help.

     

    We are proud of how our students, staff, and families are contributing to the Wood Way—growing as learners, being the best versions of ourselves, growing as a community—and strengthening our ability to recognize warning signs and ask for help is a valuable component of this collective effort.

     

    The West Linn Wilsonville School District is partnering with Safe Oregon. This is a site that allows for anonymous reporting on safety issues. Bookmark this link. http://safeoregon.com/report-a-tip/

     

     

    We encourage you to explore the following resources when communicating with your child:

     

    • School Violence--Prevention (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention): https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthviolence/schoolviolence/prevention.html
    • Suicide Prevention (NY State Department of Health): https://www.health.ny.gov/prevention/injury_prevention/children/fact_sheets/10-19_years/suicide_prevention_10-19_years.htm
    • Local mental health resources: http://www.oit.edu/portland-metro/student-services/student-health/mental-health-counseling/resources

     

    Finally, we encourage you to connect with our school counselor with questions, concerns, and/or ideas above the above topics and resources.  We look forward to partnering with you to continue to grow our community toolbox of strategies for safety and wellbeing.

     

    Thank you,

    Erin Block

    Estimados Familias;

     

    Como continuamos luchando por alrededores seguros de aprendizaje estamos placenteros de compartirles que estaremos participando en la semana de “Di Algo”.

    Como parte de la Promesa semanal de Sandy Hook “Di Algo”

    (http://www.sandyhookpromise.org/saysomethingweek), El programa nacional de prevención de violencia juvenil, nuestra consejera escolar Erín Block y nuestra Psicóloga Farnosh Gahasemi estarán organizando una mesa de recursos durante la hora de comida el jueves 18 de octubre. Nosotros estaremos discutiendo y ofreciendo recursos para los estudiantes en como reconocer los singones de prevención, signos y potenciales amenazas de violencia potencial y la importancia de tomar acción dejándole saber a un adulto de confianza.

     

    Como padres o cuidadores, nosotros sabemos que es difícil saber cómo se siente tu niño. Hoy, muchos adolescentes recurren a los canales impresos, de video y en línea para expresar sus pensamientos y esperanzas, sus ansiedades y sentimientos personales. Amigos y amistades son seguido los ojos y oídos de la escuela y comunidad, y quizá escuchen y vean estas comunicaciones, pero a lo mejor no siempre entiendan o saben qué hacer con la información. “Di Algo” ensena todo esto. No solo esta conversación te ayudara a aprender a reconocer cualquier signo de expresión de tu propio niño, pero les demuestra que usted toma este tema seriamente y que usted puede ser uno de los adultos de confianza al que pueden dirigirse si sospechan que alguien quizá necesite ayuda.

     

    Estamos orgullosos de como nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias están contribuyendo en el “Modo Wood”; Crecemos como aprendices, somos la mejor versión de nuestra persona, cresemos como comunidad y enderezando nuestra habilidad de reconocer las señales de alarma y pedir ayuda es un componente evaluable de esfuerzo colectivo. 

     

    El Distrito escolar de West Linn Wilsonville está asociado con Safe Oregón. Este es un sitio que permite el reporte anónimo en situaciones de seguridad. Marca este enlace, http://safeoregon.com/report-a-tip/

     

    Nosotros lo alimentamos a que explore los siguientes recursos cuando se comunique con su niño:

    • Violencia escolar—Prevención (Centros de control y prevención de enfermedades): http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthviolence/schoolviolence/prevention.html
    • Prevención de suicidio (Departamento de salud del Estado de NY): https://www.health.ny.gov/prevention/injury_prevention/children/fact_sheets/10-19_years/suicide_prevention_10-19_years.htm
    • Recursos locales de salud Mental: http://www.oit.edu/portland-metro/student-services/student-health/mental-health-counseling/resources

     

    Finalmente, nosotros lo a que se conecte con el consejero escolar si hay preguntas, preocupaciones y o ideas acerca de los temas y recursos. Esperamos asociarnos con usted para continuar creciendo nuestra caja de herramienta de estrategias de la comunidad para la seguridad y el bienestar. 

     

    Thank you,

    Erin Block
