Bullying and Safety Concerns

Safety is one of our district’s top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, our district is now using SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration.


You and your child can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, or any safety issue you're concerned about through SafeSchools Alert.


Every tip SafeSchools Alert receives about our district is immediately logged in the system and our administration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.


Together, using SafeSchools Alert, we can make our district a safer place to learn!
