See Something, Say Something!
One of the most important aspects of keeping a school safe is simply – "See something, say something." Everyone in the school community is urged to report anything that seems “off.” Please reach out to a principal, teacher, staff member, or trusted adult to report a concern. Providing as many details as possible can greatly help administrators investigate and respond quickly, as needed.
Hansen Schools have a Safe Schools Alert Tipline that anyone can use, at any time, to report concerns anonymously.
Students are uniquely positioned to be aware of a troubled peer or someone who threatens to harm themself or others. Parents are strongly encouraged to talk with their students about why reporting concerns is vitally important. For tips on how to have these kinds of conversations with students and address concerns about school shootings, this resource on the American Psychology Association website may be helpful.
