WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD BE REPORTED?

Report anything that could harm students, staff or school property. Some examples include: violence, weapons, threats, thefts or property damage, drug or alcohol abuse, and sexual harrassment. These things are threats to safety and should be reported.

WHO CAN CALL THE SAFE SCHOOLS HELPLINE?

This helpline is here for: students; teachers; school staff; parents; administrators; and communities. Remember, what affects your school affects you and your community.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CALL AND HOW WILL I KNOW IF SOMETHING HAS BEEN DONE?

When you call the helpline, you will be given an identification number - your name is not needed - and the operator takes the information you give. After three school days, call the free helpline number and you will be told about the action taken based on your call. You only need to give the identification number given to you before, not your name.

  • What time did/or will the event occur?

  • At which school did/or will this take place?
