We ask for your help in keeping our students and our campus safe and secure. If you have observed or are aware of suspicious or unethical behavior, abusive relationships, or sexual violence we need to know what you know. Please feel free to contact our office directly, or you may provide the information online by clicking on the link below. Your report can be made anonymously, or you may decide to leave your contact information. However you choose to bring your information to our attention, we will handle both your identity and your concern with the utmost discretion.



Gun violence, as well as other forms of violence, can sometimes be preventable. Students who are at risk of hurting themselves or others may display signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs or dismiss them as unimportant. Please take a moment a watch the 2 ½ minute video entitled “Evan” produced by Sandy Hook Promise.



Please visit the Sandy Hook Promise website for more information relating to preventing gun violence and other tragedies.
