Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying app & web-based reporting system

What is Anonymous Alerts? 

The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety mobile app and web-based reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students, parents and community members to speak up. The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters and district administration and/or school staff. Users can submit an anonymous report of any suspicious activity, bullying or other student related issues to the appropriate building level administrator directly from an iPhone or iPad, smartphone, tablet or computer.

Message topics may include student bullying, depression, family difficulties, drug and alcohol problems, sexual harassment, guns or other weapons in school or unusual student behavior that may warrant immediate attention by school officials or police. The encrypted information, including attached images if appropriate, is sent immediately through private messaging.

We encourage you to report important issues. Once a report is submitted, you will receive a confirmation from the school district.

Please be aware that false reporting will be taken seriously to the full extent of the law.

This system will be monitored between the hours of 7 am to 5 pm during the school year when school is in session. Any reports submitted outside of these hours or during holidays will be responded to during the next normally scheduled school day.
