Health & Safety
If you believe someone is unsafe at school or is creating an unsafe environment for others the best way to report it is at your school, with your principal.
Remember, you should always call 911 if you have knowledge that a crime was committed or you know that suspicious activity has been present in the community.
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.
1. Share the details. It is okay if you do not feel that you have all the information, but share as much detail as you know:
- who was involved,
- what occurred,
- where it happened,
- when it happened (day of the week, date, morning or afternoon or clock time),
- how often it happened.
2. Direct us to the people you believe to have first-hand knowledge of the situation, activity or behavior that is concerning to you:
- use first and last names of witnesses or students involved if you know them
- if you do not know names give us an age, a grade or any physical descriptors that might lead us to the right people
While District 62 staff are responsible for monitoring the incoming Safety Concern Tips, this system is not monitored 24 hours a day. In the event that your reported concern is an emergency or crisis, we implore you to please call 911.

Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying Tip
There are three key indicators that help school administrators determine if an incident violates regulations.
- Repeated - Is the behavior ongoing or taking place over a period of time?
- Intentional - Is the behavior targeted at an individual or group of students?
- Power Imbalance - Does the individual have influence over other students? Are they in a position of influence/leadership?
It is important to note, that an incident is not required to have all of these characteristics in order to constitute a HIB violation, if you are unsure you should always report anyway and let your school administrator decide.
Bullying includes cyberbullying and means any severe or pervasive physical or verbal act or conduct, including communications made in writing or electronically, directed toward a student or students that has or can be reasonably predicted to have the effect of one or more of the following:
- Placing the student or students in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s or students’ person or property;
- Causing a substantially detrimental effect on the student’s or students’ physical or mental health;
- Substantially interfering with the student’s or students’ academic performance; or
- Substantially interfering with the student’s or students’ ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.
