WeTip Hotline

WeTip Hotline - Crime Reporting
Dear LGSUHSD Families,

Last week, I sent you message regarding two significant social movements in our community - one related to racism and discrimination and the other, a MeToo movement related to sexual harassment and assault. In that message, I shared our commitment to addressing discrimination, sexual harassment and assault, and bullying in our schools and community including both immediate steps and long-term we have and will take to enhance school and district efforts and policies to address these unacceptable issues. 

One initial step is the introduction of WeTip, a nationwide crime reporting system that ensures absolute anonymity, not just confidentiality. WeTip provides toll free hotlines and internet lines 24 hours-a-day, 365 days a year. Once a report is filed, WeTip will contact our Student Services Department with the specifics of the incident. The Student Services Department will then work with site administrators, counselors and other relevant school staff to, when appropriate: heighten awareness, increase adult supervision, provide counseling support, and/or intervene with disciplinary action as appropriate.  We still encourage students and parents to contact school staff directly to report inappropriate because this reporting typically provides us with more detailed and helpful information, but we also know that bystanders often fail to get involved because they are not sure what to do, are afraid of retaliation and concerned that they will become ostracized, or don’t think adults will help. Through WeTip, the anonymity of the person reporting is maintained and the subsequent investigation conducted thoroughly.   

To learn more about WeTip, you can go to https://wetip.com/    To submit a report/tip, you can go to https://wetip.com/submit-anonymous-tip-2/

We are committed to doing our best to prevent inappropriate behavior in our school community, to quickly and firmly addressing such behaviors when they do arise, and to supporting the victims of such behavior. We believe WeTip can be a valuable tool in accomplishing this goal.

In appreciation of your support and partnership,

Michael Grove
