Fall 2018

Principal’s Corner

by: Tara Coe

   We are so excited to be back to school for the new year!  I hope everyone had a chance to relax and have fun.  Even though we have warm weather is important to wear appropriate footwear for playing on the playground.  Flip Flops do not provide the protection needed to play safely.    If you are in need of tennis shoes, please contact the school and we will help you get school ready.  

   Our PTO has several fun events scheduled for families this fall.  Watch for announcements to go home letting you know when they are happening.  Thank you again to all for all the support you provide White Pine and the students there.

STUDENT THREAT ASSESSMENT

PARENT/GUARDIAN NOTIFICATION

Dear Parents and Guardians,

   Boise Independent School District is committed to creating and maintaining school

environments in which the emotional and physical safety of students, staff, parents and

others is a priority. Schools cannot ignore any threat of violence. When threat making

behaviors occur schools initiate a process called Threat Assessment.

   Each school has a threat assessment team that is multidisciplinary. The team will include an administrator, school psychologist and school counselor; in certain situations the team may be expanded to include a social worker, teacher, school nurse and school resource officer (SRO).

What is a Threat?

   A threat is an expression of intent to do harm or act out violently against someone or

something. Threats may come in many forms, such as verbal, written, drawn, posted on the internet (social media) or made by gesture.    

   If your child comes home and reports a perceived threat, please notify the school administration immediately or call 343-COPS.

The Threat Assessment Process

When schools learn of threat making behaviors, administration will activate the Threat Assessment Process. Once this has been activated, interviews may be held with the student(s), the threat maker, parents and staff to determine the level of risk and to develop an appropriate response to the incident. Based on level of threat a Safety Intervention plan may be developed with the threat assessment team and shared with parents of the student that made the threats.

  To ensure the physical and emotional safety of everyone, it is important for all parties to

engage in the process. The threat assessment process will take place to ensure a safe and caring learning environment for all.

   Should you have further questions about the threat assessment process, please contact your building principal.
