P.O. Box 10 - 333 G Street North Powder, OR 97867 Phone 541-898-2244 FAX 541-898-2046 March 8, 2021 Dear North Powder School District Parents, Students and Caregivers, We hope you are all doing well and getting ready for spring. As we look back over our year, a lot has changed. We are thankful for the opportunity to teach your child, as we believe the education they are receiving is top notch. We wanted to remind people about a few things when dropping off your child or picking them up. As the weather gets nicer, we understand the want of being out of your vehicle when either dropping your child off or picking them up. If you choose to be outside, please make sure you have a mask on that covers your nose and mouth. Also, if you are walking across the street to pick up your child, please use the crosswalks, as we will remind your children to use the crosswalks as well. We are continually trying to keep our students safe, and need your assistance with this as well. Respectfully, Lance L Dixon Superintendent Molly Smith Principal
The Baker County Sheriff's office is looking for responsible 18 year olds (or soon to be 18) individuals that may not have set career plans. This person(s) could be interested in being a reserve dispatcher where they learn to answer 911 calls, give directions for rescue techniques such as CPR, send medics, fire or law enforcement to emergencies etc. We are looking for people that are motivated, mature and can understand the importance of the job but also respect confidentiality of others while working at the Sheriff's Office. The reserve positions require volunteer time until the person is able to answer the phone and enter a call into the computer. Once that is complete they may be summoned to work a shift or partial shift with a full time dispatcher which would be paid. (A high school student was hired 3 weeks ago and is covering shifts now). Sheriff Ash has personally learned to work in the dispatcher center and it requires a lot of multi-tasking, being able to think fast and talk with people while typing what is being said into a "call" screen. It can be intense at times but also very rewarding. The department teaches the skills that are needed and reserves are paid at the same rate as a step 1 dispatcher. The reserve dispatcher always works with a partner. If any students or former students are interested, please have them reach out to Travis Ash and you all can get a "sit" in set up where the can come in and observe the dispatch center, watch experienced dispatchers work and see if they would enjoy this type of job. The department will do a complete background checks/drug screening etc before hiring a reserve. Travis Ash, Sheriff Baker County Sheriff's Office 3410 K Street Baker City, OR 97814 PH: 541.523.6415 Fax: 541.524.9219
