Stop It App

STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying and cyber abuse, consisting of an app and a back-end 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.
  • Get Help can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school contacts.
Both Report and Get Help empower students to stand up for themselves and for one another. Students have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance. Our goal with STOPit is to create a safer, kinder school community, both online and off.

In order to try out for any sport the following must be completed:

Current physical must be turned into Anne Kling in the front office and your parents/guardians must complete the Athletic Registration Packet online through the 8 to 18 website. Also, you must have a 2.0 minimum GPA and no school fines.
