What is StayALERT?
StayALERT is a bilingual, confidential phone and texting avenue for students, teachers, staff, and parents to be able to confidentially report unsafe behaviors, suspicious activities, bullying, acts of violence, harassment, and a host of other potential disruptors to school safety. Users can report concerns 24 – 7 – 365 via either a phone call to a recorded and monitored line or via a text message from a cell phone. Once the call/message is received, it is transcribed and communicated verbatim to a pre-designated, ranking school official for follow-up.
What StayALERT is not:
StayALERT is not a substitute to reporting an emergency. Any emergency should still be reported directly to law enforcement, EMS, or fire officials for immediate action and response.
If an emergency, call 911, not the StayALERT phone or text line.
