Safe2Safe Something Tipline Program Launched

At Cornwall-Lebanon School District, the safety and well-being of our students and staff members continues to be a top priority. Over the past several years, the District has initiated many new safety features, including employing three school police officers, enhancing structural security at all building entrances, changing student drop-off locations and campus traffic patterns, and adding a tip line to the District website.

We are committed to maintaining a strong relationship with local law enforcement and implementing safety programs to educate our students, staff, and parents. Dr. Domencic sent a letter to all CCHS and CCMS parents recently to inform them about a new safety program, “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS). With direction and support from the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General, the District is implementing this anonymous reporting system that was recently mandated by Act 44 of 2018. It is designed to help students and staff members to recognize the warning signs and signals (especially those that appear on social media) of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others.

The S2SS program and curriculum is managed by the PA Attorney General’s office through a partnership with Sandy Hook Promise, a national non-profit organization working to improve school safety. The law requires school districts to train students in the use of this system. Students at Cedar Crest Middle School and Cedar Crest High School received their S2SS training January 24, 2019.
