Safe Utah

CRISIS & TIPLINE SERVICES

Dear Parents:

We are happy to announce the implementation of the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services. SafeUT is a new tool designed to provide confidential two-way communication with SafeUT crisis counselors or school staff through the SafeUT Mobile App or Web.

The SafeUT CrisisLine provides 24/7 crisis intervention and emotional support in any type of crisis.  Students can call the Crisis Line and speak directly to a crisis counselor or start a CrisisChat through the mobile app or web.

Students can also send non-crisis tips to school officials regarding topics such as bullying, cyberbullying, gang activity, drug & alcohol activity, and more.  All tips are completely anonymous.

SafeUT helps to provide students with a safe and secure school environment and it provides our school administration with the communication and management tools needed to help and mange on campus situations.

Students will receive training on how to use the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services by their school administrators.  The SafeUT Mobile App is available in the Apple and Google Play stores.  Search  “SafeUT”.

4-H News

4H After School Clubs are a great way to have lots of fun. We also have two homework help clubs which are geared towards helping students with their math homework or if they just need to stay at school to use a computer. One before school and one after school. This year the fee for clubs is $15 for the year. This will help to cover supplies for the clubs plus students will get a t-shirt! A registration form for the 2016-2017 school year also needs to be filled out and returned to Miss Ogden in room C-66. Students can pick up forms from Miss Ogden or from the front office. Here is a list of the clubs for fall:
