Staff, students and families also play a role in ensuring schools are safe. Any concerns about the safety of an individual, or larger community, should be reported to a school or district official immediately. If the issue involves a middle or high school and does not require immediate action, the report can be made anonymously through TIP TXT. TIP TXT is a safe, confidential way to stop bullying or help someone facing mental health issues, or otherwise in need. It should not be used for immediate threats and is not a substitute for 911.

To use TIP TXT, text the code for each school along with a message about the issue to the school’s designated number. TIP TXT information for each school is listed below:
