Sheriff's Office issues school alert in Tumwater School District

The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office reported this afternoon that a Tumwater High School student reported to the school resource officer that while waiting for the school bus this morning, November 30, a newer model four-door sedan with dark tinted windows drove up and stopped along Fir Tree Rd SE. The Sheriff’s Office reports that a bald, black male in his 20s got out of the car and approached her. He was holding what looked like a “Taser” and stated “Just get in the car.” The student pushed the male and he got back in his car and left toward Rainier Rd. Thurston County detectives are investigating the incident.

Board approves February 9, 2016 school bond and replacement levy election

The Olympia School Board has unanimously agreed to place a school bond on the February 9, 2016 Special Election ballot to address continued enrollment growth districtwide and smaller class size at the elementary level. The proposed bond also calls for updating school security, renovating aging school buildings and some athletic fields, building a larger performance theater at Capital High School, and making other facility improvements.

Voters will also be asked in February to consider a four-year maintenance and operations replacement levy. The levy would replace one approved by voters in 2012 to help pay for day-to-day learning needs such as teaching, school supplies, athletics and activities and transportation.

Safe Schools Alert

Safety is our top priority.  SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web.  Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process.  Tips may be submitted anonymously.

Instances of harrasment, intimidation or bullying may also be reported by completing the "HIB Incident Reporting Form" found here on the OSD website.  After completing this form it may be delivered in person, by fax, or email attachment to the school principal.

If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
