Learn the signs. Say something. The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System Hotline is now available to our students and families. This Anonymous Hotline is monitored 24/7 by trained crisis counselors. The SS-ARS allows youth and adults to securely submit anonymous safety concerns – anytime, from anywhere – to help identify and intervene upon at-risk individuals before they hurt themselves or others. The system enables school administrators and law enforcement to create effective interventions and to help prevent violence, suicide, bullying, self-harm and other forms of threatening behavior. 1-844-5-SAYNOW
