Niguel Hills launched the “Say Something Anonymous Reporting System” (SS-ARS). This program teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize the warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and "Say Something" to a trusted adult OR use its anonymous reporting system. Specifically, the program educates participants to:
- Recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors – especially within social media
- Take every sign and signal seriously; act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult OR
- Report it anonymously through SS-ARS 24/7 Crisis Center, mobile app, or website SAY SOMETHING App, go online to www.saysomething.net or call 1-844-5-SAYNOW
- Respond to and manage the submitted tip via a multi-disciplinary educator and administrator teams
Every middle and high school student in CUSD will receive training on the SS-ARS system in the beginning of each school year.
The SS-ARS program is being provided through Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a nation-wide non-profit organization. SHP’s programs are in all 50 states – with 7,000+ schools and over 3.5 million students and adults trained.
Please take time to discuss this with your child and how they can report any concerns they might have to you, the school or using the Say Something program. They can download the SAY SOMETHING App, go online to www.saysomething.net or call 1-844-5-SAYNOW to report a tip.
We are confident that Say Something will be an empowering tool for our students. For more information on the program, please visit the Say Something website here Say Something Website or contact our school. We are utilizing only the anonymous reporting service at this time.
