Say Something ARS
Dear 6th through 12th Grade LBUSD Families:
As a school district, we are committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive, coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students, educators, administrators and the community at large.
To do this, we believe this must involve community-wide programs and initiatives involving parents, teachers, administrators, local law enforcement, mental health and wellness professionals, and elected officials to take meaningful action to protect our students.
Today, we are happy to announce the grades 6-12 launch of the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System (SS-ARS). This program teaches students, teachers and administrators how to recognize warning signals and threats on social media, in school or in their community, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others, and Say Something to a trusted adult OR use its anonymous reporting system. Specifically, the program educates students and adult participants to:
Recognize the signs and threats of at-risk behaviors
Take every sign and signal seriously and act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult, OR
Report it anonymously to the SS-ARS 24/7/365 Crisis Center via a mobile app, website or telephone hotline
Respond to and manage the submitted tips using a tip management system overseen by a designated school team
Sustain the curriculum and awareness via student clubs, in-school activities and call-to-action weeks
Our students are often aware of the problems their peers are facing, so we must empower them to recognize the danger signs and give them the tools to help each other with the assistance of trained and caring adults. As you know, most conversations are taking place on social media, therefore it is critical that we teach our students to look out for one another as these digital conversations are taking place. SS-ARS teaches them what to look for in text, video and photos while empowering them to act quickly to help a fellow student. The program also teaches students to recognize at-risk behaviors in friends and classmates at school and in their local community
The SS-ARS program is provided by Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a nationwide nonprofit organization. SHP’s programs are in 50 states – with 14,000+ schools and over 12 million students and adults trained. They have a track record, reputation and knowledge of how to work effectively with kids, parents and teachers to improve school safety and culture. The program is age-appropriate and research-based. To date, SS-ARS and other SHP prevention programs have helped stop multiple school shootings, suicides and gun threats. The program has reduced bullying and cyberbullying, and intervened upon cutting, drug use and other violent acts. We know this program will do the same for our district.
