Deputy Kelly OlsonWELCOME to the School Resource Officer (SRO) web page for Mahtomedi High School. The SRO is a Deputy Sheriff with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office who is assigned to the school district.

About Deputy Kelly Olson
My job as an SRO is to provide a safe learning environment in district schools by reducing school violence; by improving school/law enforcement collaboration; and by improving perceptions and relations between students, staff, and law enforcement.  My goal is to build a bond between students, staff, and administration, by day-to-day informal contact.  I assist the school as needed, anything from safety lectures, crime prevention issues, or any other concerns that may arise during the school day.  Too often the interactions between the police and the general public are during times of problems or despair.  By allowing me to be at the school, students have the opportunity to use me as a resource and assist in an early form of prevention and build a positive bond between the police and the community. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime!

Our School
Mahtomedi High School has a heart for innovation, provides rigorous academic coursework, and supports students to explore extracurricular opportunities. Our teachers and staff are passionate and dedicated people who explore innovative ideas and teach our students new ways of thinking to support them in whatever career path they choose. Students engage in project-based learning to solve real-world problems using industry-standard technology in the nation’s first M.I.T. certified FabLab housed in a public school. Fine arts is a vital and robust part of the High School and our visual and performing arts classes include ceramics, digital art, choir, band, and event broadcasting. We also offer Flex Time during the school day when students may receive academic support, engage in college and career exploration, and connect over common interests. Over 90% of our student community engages in extracurricular activities that range from athletics to robotics. Students’ social and emotional learning is addressed through various avenues including a restorative practices approach for student behavior and through our Zephyr Link Crew mentoring program.
