Safety & Security Concerns

Students, staff, parents and community members are encouraged to report safety concerns as soon as they become aware of a concern. When possible, we ask that you report actual or suspected threats directly to a school administrator or trusted staff member. However, to ensure reports can be made, and received, the division has two additional ways to report school safety concerns.

The division’s Report It form allows individuals to file confidential reports online while the HOTLINE, 757-890-5000, allows individuals to report concerns through voicemail. The purpose of the Division Hotline is to report incidences of misconduct, such as threats, bullying, discrimination and/or harassment, to the York County School Division. It is completely anonymous. Voicemail is available 24/7 and will be checked twice daily. After the call has been received, necessary steps and precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Reports are reviewed Monday through Friday and designated administrators are notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. In the event of an emergency, call 911.

When reporting a concern, please include as much information as possible. The more information you can provide, the more helpful this will be in resolving the concern. Try to answer the questions:

  • What happened?
  • When and where did it happen?
  • Who was involved? Do you have their name, age, and/or grade?

Reports are confidential and can be made anonymously when necessary. Misuse of the HOTLINE or Report It form will be investigated and pursued.
