Verona Area School District implements new anonymous safety tip line

Difference in someone's day."

When we send our kids off to school, we, of course, want to make sure they're safe.

But in our society, safety can never be guaranteed.

Jamie perez shares how the verona area school district is making it easier for students to be one step ahead by taking their safety into their own hands.

Jp says," safety is a top priority at any school anywhere you go.

But here at the verona area school district, they're taking that one step further by putting safety right at your fingertips.

"this is what i see on my end" corey saffolds job is to make sure students at school are safe.

Unfortunately in this day and age, safety in schools is harder to guarantee.

"unfortunately this is the new america.

This is our new reality."

As a way to make safety that much more attainable at verona area schools nats typing a new safety system is being used for the first time here.

"i think that whatever you can put in place to help save lives, go ahead and put it in place."

At no cost to the district, students, parents and staff can now anonymously submit tips to school administrators whenever they feel threatened by or see violence, weapons, drugs, you name it.

"it's scary.

But times are changing."

You can choose to submit a tip on the website, email or text it to the school.

District administrators take it from there in seconds.

"people get alerts on their phones.

It's not just the principals.

We have secretaries, myself, there's an overseer in the group that also gets those alerts."

This is something saffolds says he hopes doesn't have to be used... but it's there if needed... because he'd rather be safe than sorry.

"if the tip line wasn't in place, and that wasn't there, would the student have shared that?

And then what would have happened as a result of us not getting that information."

In verona, "i think it should be in any school.

It can't hurt, right?"

Jamie perez, news 3 now.

Corey saffolds also said the tip line can screen out real threats versus fake ones students may send to just get out of class.

The tip line email address, phone number and a how-to... can be found on our
