YUHSD partners with Anonymous Alerts for anti-bullying and safety app reporting system
YUMA — Yuma Union High School District has partnered with Anonymous Alerts to provide students and families a way to anonymously report bullying and safety concerns via a website link and mobile application.
The reporting system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
“We are excited to add another tool for our students and community to speak up when something regarding student safety comes up,” YUHSD Associate Superintendent Lisa Anderson said. “Yuma Union High School District students have long been vigilant about protecting their classmates and schools and when they see something, they say something. This system makes that even easier and allows our administrators a valuable way to not only track problem incidents, but also various other data points to help keep our campuses safe.”
To use this revolutionary new app, students, parents or other school personnel can simply visit the YUHSD website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or text link to
submit a report expressing their concern. Anonymous Alerts mobile applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or the Chrome stores.
YUHSD supplies students an activation code, and students select which school the message should go to. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools across the district.
