Report safety concerns anonymously
Tammy Baisden, Assistant to the Superintendent
The safety of our students and staff in the Mount Baker School District is a top priority. Our District encourages anyone in our community to call the above School Safety Tip Line and leave a message to report any safety concerns regarding our schools. If you have an immediate safety concern or emergency, please call 9-1-1.
The safety of students, staff, and the general public is and will continue to be a priority for the District at all levels. Behind the scenes, there are procedures that must be developed and updated to ensure that all staff is informed of what to do and have designated responsibilities should an emergency occur.
