Safe2Say Something

 

The state of Pennsylvania has launched the Safe2Say Something anonymous reporting app. As always, in an emergency do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.

Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to "say something" BEFORE it is too late.

In 2018, the General Assembly passed Act 44 mandating the establishment and use of the "Safe2Say Something" (S2SS) anonymous reporting system by every Pennsylvania school entity by January 14, 2019.

THREE WAYS TO SUBMIT AN ANONYMOUS TIP:

 

  • Call the tipline: 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-7292)
  • Use the website: www.safe2saypa.org
  • Use the mobile app available in iOS and Android stores

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

  • Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
  • Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
  • Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
  • If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app

Emergency Notification Service
We have adopted an Emergency Notification Service which allows us to send a telephone message to student homes providing important information about school events or emergencies. We are using this system to notify parents of school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. In the event of an emergency at school, parents can have peace of mind knowing that they will be informed immediately by phone.

Unplanned School Closings, Delays, or Early Dismissals
On any given day, parents and staff are urged to use caution when making the decision to drive or walk over snow and ice covered roads
