Marco Forster Middle School has launched a new program called “Text-A-Tip” in another effort to keep schools safe. The program provides students a confidential method to report problems directly to the School Resource Deputy and to school administrators.
Text-A-Tip will allow students to use their cell phone to text and report issues such as bullying, depression, fights, drugs, weapons, and any threats relating to campus safety. Via a confidential text, students can detail a problem without the fear of being labeled a “snitch,” “rat,” or “tattletale” by their peers. Posters will be placed around the campus so students will be aware of the program and the phone number for sending their texts.
Texting is a very comfortable way for the youth of today to communicate, and we feel this program will keep the lines of communication open between the students and the school administrators.
Text-A-Tip to (949) 424-MFMS / (949) 424-6367
This program is not intended for emergency use. In case of an emergency requiring immediate law enforcement response, students should call 911.
