HARRISBURG — Attorney General Josh Shapiro stated that Safe2Say Something, the statewide tip line for Pennsylvania students with concerns about themselves or others, remains available to commonwealth schools through the coronavirus pandemic.
“In this time of crisis, the importance of maintaining this tip line for students to communicate concerns even while outside traditional classrooms is crucial,” Shapiro said Wednesday. “Our 24/7 tip center is open and connecting students with the resources they need, such as school counselors during this time when students are home, may feel isolated or be struggling with anxiety or depression. I’m grateful for the hard work of the men and women on our Safe2Say team and their dedication to helping students across the commonwealth.”
While schools are currently closed, students still have the option to submit tips to the Safe2Say Program as they normally would — through the Safe2Say app, website or by calling in and speaking with a Safe2Say team member.
Shapiro said the Safe2Say Program is still in continuous contact with the designated school teams for each district and with law enforcement when tips are life threatening.
