Mars Area School District participates in the Safe2Say Something youth violence prevention program, which is offered through the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General in partnership with Sandy Hook Promise.
Safe2Say Something provides the means by which anyone can confidentially report safety concerns that may help prevent violence and tragedies. The program includes three (3) ways to make an anonymous tip:
- Website — www.safe2saypa.org
- Mobile App — Safe2Say Something (available for download via Google Play or the Apple Store).
- 24/7 Crisis Hotline — (844) SAF2SAY or (844) 723-2729
The Office of the Attorney General Crisis Center analysts review, assess and process all reports before the information is forwarded to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention. If needed, the Crisis Center may contact the tipster anonymously.
Safe2Say Something, a state-mandated program for all Pennsylvania schools, teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from those who may be a threat to themselves and/or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late.
