Report bullying, other troubles, via phone/tablet

This is a reminder that students, parents and others can  report bullying and other troubles that may impact students in Liberty Central School from their cell phones and tablets with the app that is available from Anonymous Alerts. The app is an extension of the agreement the School District reached recently with Anonymous Alerts, a patented, anonymous two-way communications system that empowers students to anonymously report bullying and harassment, weapons, drug and alcohol usage and other safety concerns directly to school officials.

ANONYMOUS ALERTS

Anonymous Alerts allows students, parents and staff members to submit a report to the appropriate building level administrator directly from an iPhone or iPad, smartphone, tablet or computer. The encrypted information is sent immediately through private messages and images may be attached to the messages.

Message topics include student bullying, depression, family difficulties, drug and alcohol problems, sexual harassment, guns or other weapons in school or unusual student behavior that may warrant immediate attention by school officials or police.

The mobile apps and Web-based reporting system provides secure 1-way or 2-way encrypted messages, increasing the flow of important information to school officials.

2. How do I submit a report from my smart phone?

From the iPhone Store, download the free app by searching for “Anonymous Alerts”. If you have an Android phone go to the Play Store, search for “Anonymous Alerts” and download. After downloading the app, click on it, enter setup/login Liberty and enter Liberty as your Password.
