Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying, including Sexual Harassment
If you believe someone is unsafe, being mistreated at school, or creating an unsafe environment for others, the best way to report it is at your school, with your principal. If you want to keep your identity private, we still want to know about your concern. The more information we have, the more effectively we are able to respond.
Remember, you should always call 911 if you have knowledge that a crime was committed.
