This image features a large group of people posing for a photo in what appears to be an auditorium. They are standing on tiered steps in front of a large presentation screen that displays a message about peace. The text on the screen reads:  "PEACE. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."  The group is diverse, with men and women wearing casual to business-casual clothing. Some are smiling and looking directly at the camera, while others seem to be engaged in light conversation with their neighbors. The setting suggests they may have gathered for a conference, seminar, or a group training session. The overall mood is positive and congenial.

Medford, OR — On Saturday, January 20, 2024, the Eagle Point School District, Ashland School District, and Eagle Point Police Department jointly organized a pivotal training session focusing on the "I Love U Guys" Foundation's School Safety Response Protocol (SRP) and Standard Reunification Methods (SRM).

Educators, law enforcement officers, first responders, and agency partners from thirty different organizations across Southern Oregon convened for specialized training conducted by the "I Love U Guys" Foundation. The Foundation, known for its workshops in Oregon and nationally, empowered participants to train others in the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) and Standard Reunification Method (SRM). This comprehensive training covered program implementation, team training, and handling advanced questions.

The next phase in cultivating safe school communities during emergencies involves applying the SRP and SRM practically. The SRM-Reunification Exercises allowed school communities and their partners to rehearse reuniting children with their families during mock emergency incidents.

The one-day training, including in-person "Train the Trainer" activities, took place from 8 AM to 4:00 PM. Special thanks to Asante’s Smullen Health Education Center for hosting and to Property & Casualty Coverage for Education (PACE) for sponsoring the event.
