S T O P tip line

What is it?  This tipline in no way replaces the face to face open communication and relationships built at our schools. The STOP tipline is just one more tool available for use by students or parents to communicate unsafe situations at school. One unique attribute of an "online" tipline is its availability.  A student, parent  or community member can submit information day or night. Also, many students may feel more comfortable emailing about a situation (instead of a face to face meeting with school officials). The main purpose of the tipline is to add another layer of accessibility between students and trusted school personnel. This tipline is not for immediate response. If anyone needs immediate assistance, they should dial 911.    How does it work?   Students or Parents   Click logo on school's webpage Choose whether you want to submit a tip about 1) bullying, 2)violence or 3) other risky behaviors (i.e. alcohol, drugs, self-harm, sexual abuse or theft, etc...) Fill-in the check boxes and explain Click submitWhat is it?    This tipline in no way replaces the face to face open communication and relationships built at our schools. The STOP tipline is just one more tool available for use by students or parents to communicate unsafe situations at school.

  •  A great feature of an "online" tipline is availability.  A student, or parent can submit information day or night.
