See Something Say Something

If you See Something, Say Something® is a national campaign used to help raise awareness to suspicious activity. The Tulare City School District challenges staff and students, alike, to "have each other's back" and to report any and all suspicious activity that can place someone in danger.
 
One can Say Something by any of the following means: 
- Telling a teacher
- Telling someone in the office
- Telling the school principal or vice principal
- Telling a parent
- Making a Sprigeo report (which can be anonymous)
- Calling the District Office
- Calling Tulare Police Department
 
"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, the worst you can do is nothing."
-Theodore Roosevelt
