MAXWELL ANNOUNCES STOP! TIPLINE
REPORT BULLYING “ONLINE”
Safety is our first priority. In an effort to use every able resource to STOP bullying and other risky behaviors in our schools, Maxwell proudly announces the implementation of the “Safety Tipline Online Prevention” or STOP! Tipline. The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.
Our hope is that students who fear face-to-face reporting of bullying or other safety issues may be less reluctant to share this vital information when offered an “online” option by giving students the ability to report concerns over their tablets, computers or mobile phones. We can now reach more students and address problems before they escalate.
The process for using the tip line involves locating the STOP Tipline logo on the school homepage in the top navigation menu, on the popular links icons, or under School Quick Links. Immediately, students or community members can anonymously report bullying, cyber-bullying, violence, risky behavior, or other safety concerns to school personnel by using a basic email format. Tips can be left anonymously or students may choose to have someone contact them. More information can be found about the tip line at www.kycss.org/stop/about.php
The announcement of the STOP! Tipline aligned with the Kentucky Safe Schools Week theme this year “Be the Hero; Stop the Bullying!” By using the tipline any student can become a “Silent Hero”. www.kysafeschools.org/ssw.php
This tip line is just another powerful tool in our arsenal against bullying, harassment, and other unsafe behaviors in our schools. Our Comprehensive Safe School Plan is ever evolving to keep our students and staff safe, and we are using every resource available to do so.

Safety is a priority for the students and staff of Maxwell. We maintain a commitment to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for all. As we reflect upon recent national events, we will continue to examine our current practices and procedures to ensure that they are appropriate and responsive. During the March 2 Breakfast with the Principals we will discuss our commitment to safety and will highlight relevant updates. We respect the right of families to conduct conversations about the recent events as they see appropriate. With that noted, please know that Mrs. MacDonald is available to speak with your child. Likewise, please view some resources that might assist you with your family discussions.
