STATE Safe2Say introduced to students
Pennsylvania recently implemented a statewide, 24/7, tip line for reporting school-related threats. This new tip line is called Safe2Say Something and is focused on providing middle school and high school students across our state a tool for anonymously reporting threats. Any tips reported to Safe2Say Something involving our district will be shared with our school safety team and local law enforcement for immediate action. Over the next week, all middle school and high school students will receive information at school about the Safe2Say Something program including information on how to text, call or email to report a concern. Details regarding Safe2Say Something are posted on the district’s website as parents and community members statewide can also download the app and report threats. Please review the website at www.safe2saypa.org/ for these details.
