ALICE Training®

The safety and security of our students and staff are always the highest priority at Riverview School District. Subsequently, we continuously review our policies and procedures to ensure that recent research and best practices support our safety protocols. As we see a need to modify our practices, we do so after careful research, consultation with our law enforcement partners and consideration of what is best for students.

Since 2000, ALICE Training® is a widely adopted, effective method of active shooter response training. ALICE Training® is now a part of Navigate360’s suite of safety programs for schools, workplaces and other communities. Navigate360 offers comprehensive solutions for active shooter preparedness and other safety and emergency measures. Together, these solutions usher in a new era where people replace fear and hopelessness with preparation and readiness in the face of violence.

Suicide Prevention Education and Support

Youth suicide is a tragic loss which impacts the entire community. To help ensure all of our children stay safe and healthy, this important topic continues to be a focus of support and education in our schools. Our schools have engaged students in a variety of prevention activities in recent years, in partnership with experts from Washington's Youth Suicide Prevention Program (YSPP), the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network (SVCN), and the Student Assistance Program (SAP) operated through Prevention Center at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
