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.

Reset Your Mindset

Instead of... I give up;
Think... I can try again.

Instead of... I am not ____ enough;
Think... I am complete as I am.

Instead of... I can't do this;
Think... I can learn.

Instead of... I might fail;
Think... I can learn from my mistakes and come out stronger.

You Are Enough

Don't forget...

~ Everything isn't perfect.

~ You are stronger than you think.

~ A small step is still a step forward.

~ Making mistakes is not a problem.

~ Getting back on track is not failure.

~ Take a break if you need to.

~ Trust in yourself and do your best.
