District 51 increases Safe2Tell awareness

Grand Junction, CO – District 51 is spreading the word that Safe2Tell Colorado is an effective, anonymous way to report self-harm, abuse, bullying, drug use, and much more. Anyone can make a Safe2Tell report:

  • Online (safe2tell.org)
  • By phone (1-877-542-7233)
  • In the app (Apple or Google Play)

Every report to Safe2Tell goes to 911 dispatch, school administration, and D51 security, so someone from at least one of those three areas can respond 24/7. Safe2Tell is not new, but use of Safe2Tell is gaining steam in local schools. Schools are hoping to build on that momentum by putting up more Safe2Tell posters, handing out cards and bookmarks with Safe2Tell reporting information printed on them, and asking one person at each school to serve as a Safe2Tell representative who will work with students to promote Safe2Tell.

District 51 will be the first school district on the Western Slope to welcome Safe2Tell trainers to host staff trainings for counselors, administrators, school resource officers and local law enforcement April 24-25, 2017. A Community Information Night about Safe2Tell will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 24, 2017, at the Mesa County Workforce Center, 512 29 ½ Road.
