Did you know that the S.T.O.P. tipline isn't just for reporting bullies?
The S.T.O.P. tipline is just one tool you can use to keep our school community safe. You can use the S.T.O.P. tipline to report bullying, violence, or any other problem like drugs, alcohol, self-harm, sexual abuse, theft, and other high risk behavior.
(The tipline isn't for immediate response. If you need immediate assistance, dial 911.)
