Sponsored by Sandy Hook Promise, the program educates secondary students, educators and administrators on how to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be at-risk of hurting themselves or others and encourages them to report that behavior through an anonymous reporting system.
The reporting system allows administrators and law enforcement to create effective interventions and help prevent violence, suicide, bullying, self-harm and other forms of threatening behavior.
Anyone can submit an anonymous tip by going to the program’s website (www.saysomething.net), calling the tipline (1-844-5-SAYNOW) or using the Say Something mobile app.
We currently have several Starmount High students who are in isolation due to testing positive this week. We also have a number of staff members who are isolated or quarantined, including several in the front office, due to being contacts.
We are going to transition Starmount High School to remote learning the rest of this week and next week. We plan to reopen for face to face instruction on Monday, January 25th.
The campus will be closed for the next two days so that deep cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, workrooms, athletic facilities and offices can take place. We are going to pause all after school activities for the rest of this week and weekend and a decision about resuming these activities will be made next week.
We will provide curbside meal service at Starmount Middle School for students from Starmount High School. Students or the parents of students may pick up meals from 11:30 to 12:30 Monday through Friday while we are having school remotely. We will be closed for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 18th.
