EWSD Adds Tip Line to Each School Website

January 27, 2021

Dear EWSD Families, Students, and Staff,

 

The Essex Westford School District has added a Tip Line feature on the front of each school website as we strive to continuously improve our safety measures. The Tip Line has been available on the EWSD app, but now members of our school community have another way to access it for school-related issues. 

 

The Tip Line is a tool for proactively addressing harmful situations and helping students and staff who need it. The purpose is focused on reporting such incidents as bullying, drugs, fighting, personal crisis, safety risks, threats, vandalism, and weapons. There is also an opportunity to provide positive comments in the dropdown menu as well. 

 

All tips are anonymous unless the submitter chooses to add contact details in the personal information fields. 

 

When submitting a tip, please provide as much detail as possible so that the issue can be addressed appropriately. 

 

The EWSD takes all reports that come in through the Tip Line seriously, as timely reporting of information assists in keeping our schools safe and secure. If you have an emergency, we still ask that you call 911. We also ask that you do not use this form for general questions.

 

Don’t have the EWSD app on your mobile device already? You can download it online for free. If you have any questions, please reach out to EWSD Communications Coordinator Ben Dickie (bdickie@ewsd.org). 


Please also read the EWSD Statement on Safety and Recent Events that was sent recently.
