P3 Anonymous Tip Reporting

This year, Crosby ISD has launched a way for anyone to report concerning behavior anonymously. We utilize the P3 Campus Alerts App. P3 stands for Protect, Prevent, Participate.


The reporting system is designed to help combat bullying and other safety concerns by empowering anyone in the Crosby and Barrett Station communities to make anonymous reports. P3 is encrypted and allows for one-way or two-way communications between submitters, such as parents or students, and campus/District administrators and School Resource Officers.


P3 is available through the P3 Campus App in app stores or through the website p3campus.com. Users always have the option to remain anonymous or include their identity when submitting a report.


The video below shows you exactly how to walk through the App to submit a report. https://youtu.be/0YEROpisI3A



There are more than two dozen concerning behaviors that we want to know about. From harassment to stealing to planned fighting, bullying or cyberbullying, and dating violence.

Este año, Crosby ISD ha lanzado una forma para que cualquier persona informe sobre su comportamiento de forma anónima. Utilizamos la aplicación P3 Campus Alerts. P3 significa Proteger, Prevenir, Participar.


El sistema de informes está diseñado para ayudar a combatir el acoso escolar y otros problemas de seguridad al permitir que cualquier persona en las comunidades de Crosby y Barrett Station realice informes anónimos. P3 está encriptado y permite comunicaciones unidireccionales o bidireccionales entre remitentes, como padres o estudiantes, y administradores del campus/distrito y oficiales de recursos escolares.


P3 está disponible a través de la aplicación P3 Campus en las tiendas de aplicaciones o a través del sitio web p3campus.com. Los usuarios siempre tienen la opción de permanecer en el anonimato o incluir su identidad al enviar un informe.


El video a continuación le muestra exactamente cómo recorrer la aplicación para enviar un informe. https://youtu.be/0YEROpisI3A



Hay más de dos docenas de comportamientos preocupantes que queremos conocer. Desde el acoso hasta el robo, las peleas planificadas, el acoso o el ciberacoso y la violencia en el noviazgo.

PLC Dates

We wanted to share with you the 2022-2023 dates for PLC Days for secondary campuses (Crosby High School and Crosby Middle School) and elementary campuses (Drew, Newport, Crosby, Barrett, and Crosby Kindergarten Center).


PLC stands for Professional Learning Communities. PLC Days use time students are not in class for teachers to work collaboratively to plan, research, and exchange ideas for the purpose of better serving our students.


For secondary campuses, PLC Days happen on selected Wednesdays throughout the year. The first PLC Day for Crosby High School and Crosby Middle School will be September 14. Crosby Middle School will open the doors at 8:10am. Crosby High School will open the doors at 8:20am. Instruction will begin at 9am at both campuses.
