  • SafeSchools Online Alert System

    The Richland School District is rolling out SafeSchools Online Alert System at all secondary school’s effective March 1st.

    SafeSchools Online Alert System enables students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members to submit tips online regarding issues such as, but not limited to, cyberbullying, harassment, threats, weapons, drugs, mental illness, domestic abuse, family/home issues and suspicious activities.  Additional information is located at Board of Directors report.

    The system supports submittal of anonymous tips. However, providing as much information as possible will help the district respond more quickly and efficiently when resolving issues.

    The next step will be implementing SafeSchools at RSD elementary schools. That will take place sometime this spring. We will provide another update when that is operational. Please continue to work directly with your elementary school staff as needed.  However, if you prefer, you can submit a tip via SafeSchools and we will route the tip accordingly.

    Attached is the SafeSchools Online Alert System flyer for your review/use, please feel free to share with your students, friends, and family.  The system is accessible online https://rsd-wa.safeschoolsalert.com/ or http://1610.alert1.us.  In order to view the introductory videos, you must use a browser that supports Flash/Shockwave.

    Contact Mike Leseberg, Executive Director of Information Technology at Mike.Leseberg@rsd.edu with questions or for additional information.

  • Falcon Attendance


    • Students should miss no more than 9 days each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation. 
    • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.
    • Missing 10%, or about 18 days, of the school year can drastically affect a student’s academic success.
    • Students can be chronically absent even if they only miss a day or two every few weeks.

    Benton Franklin Crisis

    The Counseling Services staff would like reminded students that support is available to anyone who needs it at the Hanford High School Counseling Office. Also, two additional resources everyone can access are the Benton-Franklin Crisis Response Unit and the Crisis Text Line. The Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via text messaging. All you do is text 741741 and a live, trained crisis counselor receives the text and responds quickly. The Crisis Text Line does not charge texters, but standard messaging rates may apply.
