North Middle School wants to STOPit!

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

In an effort to address and prevent harassment, bullying, or cyber abuse, we are excited to inform you that our school has enrolled with STOPit!  

STOPit is an online, anonymous reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying and cyber abuse, consisting of an app and a backend incident management system for school administrators and school SRO’s.  We have just completed all necessary arrangements with the company and local contacts and are looking to implement this program as quickly as possible.

Our students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.

Report can be used by students to report incidents to school contacts (anonymously, if the student so chooses) and/or to trusted contacts the student selects.

Get Help can be used to engage in two-way communication with school contacts or to access a 24/7, 365 talk-or-text Crisis Center.

Both Report and Get Help empower students to stand up for themselves and for one another. Students have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance. Our goal with STOPit is to create a safer, kinder school community, both online and off.

Please note that we will be launching STOPit school-wide. At that time, your child will be invited to download the STOPit app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge.  More information and resources can be found online at stopitcyberbully.com.
