In our efforts to keep our schools and students safe, we have partnered with SchoolSpan to bring you the Anonymous Alert System.  With concerns over school violence on the rise, students are often the first to know about potential problems manifesting themselves. They hear things in the hallways, after school, from friends, but are often too afraid to tell a staff member for fear of retaliation or embarrassment.
