Text-A-Tip

 
Text-A-Tip is a program that allows students, parents or others to anonymously send a text or email message to our school resource officers and school administrators about concerns they may have for their own safety or the safety of others. Text-A-Tip will be actively monitored during the school day. It should not be used for emergencies—Call 911 if you need immediate help.
 

Text-A-Tip Questions and Answers

 
What is Text-A-Tip? Text-A-Tip is a text address (274637 – which spells CRIMES) where students, parents or others can anonymously send a text message to our school resource officers and school administrators about concerns they may have for their own safety or the safety of others. Tips may also be sent with a computer and online tip form. Links are available on each school’s web page. Look for the Text-A-Tip link from the main page. Text-A-Tip should not be used for emergencies – Call 911 if you need immediate help. Text-A-Tip will be actively monitored during the school day.
 
Why are you doing the Text-A-Tip program?  First, we know that the primary way students communicate today is through texting so the Text-A-Tip program seemed the most effective way to connect with our students. We also believe that students are the best source of the information about what’s going on at school. Students are the eyes and ears of a school, and it is everyone’s responsibility to keep school safe. Unfortunately, sometimes students don’t feel comfortable sharing information directly because they are afraid they may be identified. So our hope is that we can give our students, the eyes and ears of the school, an anonymous voice through Text-A-Tip.
 
What kind of information do you hope to get through Text-A-Tip?  Our slogan is “If it’s wrong, Text-A-Tip.” This would include any concerns students may have for their own safety or the safety of others. Students can report any information they see or hear about, such as drug possession or use, weapons, bullying, cheating, inappropriate behavior, harassment, threats, intimidation or really anything they believe should be shared with adults.
 
If I send a text from my phone, how can it be confidential? Who will get the text when I send it?  When a student texts a message, the text goes to the Text-A-Tip company outof- state, which then sends an email to the school resource officers and the administrators of your school. The company removes your phone number so it stays confidential.
