If you See Something, Say Something® is a national campaign used to help raise awareness to suspicious activity. The Tulare City School District challenges staff and students, alike, to "have each other's back" and to report any and all suspicious activity that can place someone in danger.
 
One can Say Something by any of the following means: 
- Telling a teacher
- Telling someone in the office
- Telling the school principal or vice principal
- Telling a parent
- Making a Sprigeo report (which can be anonymous)
- Calling the District Office
- Calling Tulare Police Department
 
"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, the worst you can do is nothing."
-Theodore Roosevelt 

 

Sprigeo

 
If you feel unsafe or know someone who feels unsafe, please report it here. After you fill out the form, Sprigeo sends an email to an administrator with all of the details from your report. You can also download one of the apps from the Apple Store or the Android Marketplace to submit a report.
 
We believe that all students have a right to a safe, secure, and healthy school environment. Our school, with support from the district and school communities, is committed to promoting an atmosphere of mutual respect, tolerance, and acceptance.
