STOP!T Bullying Reporting and Prevention

We are excited to inform you that our school has enrolled with STOPit!

STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying and cyber abuse, consisting of an app and a backend incident management system for school administrators.

Our students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.

Report can be used by students to report incidents to school contacts (anonymously, if the student so chooses) and/or to trusted contacts the student selects.

Get Help can be used to engage in two-way communication with school contacts or to access a 24/7, 365 talk-or-text Crisis Center.

Please read the letter home to families and attend the informational meeting on Wednesday, December 9th at 6PM if you would like more information.

Safe Drop off and Pickup

Just a reminder to parents that students can only be dropped off/picked up at the GREEN locations on this map. We understand that when the weather is colder you don't want your student to be out in the cold, but we cannot have parents picking up students in the bus lane due to safety concerns. Thank you for your cooperation!
