On Monday February 26, 2019, a presentation about the new Safe 2 Say Something app was held in the high school auditorium. The Safe 2 Say Something app allows students to report an incident while keeping their identities a secret.

 

“Even though I would never bully anyone, I still believe that bullying is something that can get you into a lot of trouble. It can lead to things that can hurt the people around you as well. So in general, don’t bully in any way because there is always someone that will see you doing it and report you,” said junior Adriana Martin.

 

The presentation given by principal Mrs. Tiffany Hummel educated students so that they are able to recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors, especially on social media. It also teaches students to take every sign seriously, and report any concerning signals anonymously through the Safe 2 Say Something mobile app or website. Mrs. Hummel used resources given to all schools in Pennsylvania  from the office of the Attorney General.

 

“I personally think the app is quite beneficial, though I believe yearly mental health screenings would be more efficient to address problems. A more definite way of seeking treatment as well as getting accurate results overall prevents kids from suffering if the problem is caught early,” said sophomore Luke Knarr.

 

The Safe to Say Something app is part of a statewide initiative to combat bullying and other issues that cause students to feel unsafe or upset. “I think it is a good start. I’m not sure how effective it will be, but I think it will benefit at least a little. That’s better than nothing,” said freshman Kendra Spevak.
