Flagstaff USD is introducing a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts® to allow students or parents to easily report urgent information to school officials anonymously across all of our school campuses when students return to school following the Thanksgiving Break. The system encourages students, parents and community to confidentially report bullying, cyber-bullying, and other sensitive topics to our administration. Flagstaff USD does not support, encourage, nor tolerate any behavior that prevents any student from reaching their full potential.
We also believe that the best way to address problems that our students face in school is personal contact with a teacher, school administrator, psychologist, or counselor and FUSD strongly encourages and fully supports that continued practice. However, we do know that sometimes there is a concern that a student or parent may want to communicate anonymously.
The mobile apps and Web-based reporting system provides secure 1-way or 2-way encrypted messages, increasing the flow of important information to school officials. Message topics for submission may include bullying, cyber-bullying, family difficulties, self-harm/cutting, drug and alcohol abuse, student depression, sexual harassment, gang related issues or strange/abnormal student behavior.

All reports remain completely anonymous, although submitters have the option to reveal their identity if they prefer to do so. Reports will be monitored from 7AM until 5PM. Any reports submitted outside of these hours or during holidays will be responded to during the following normally scheduled school day.
If something disturbing or life threatening occurs at other times, it is imperative to call 911.
We feel that we have a responsibility to offer this tool to our community in order to protect the safety of our students, providing methods for confidential disclosure when there is something serious that is troubling them. At Flagstaff USD, our goal is to enhance the student’s learning experience and limit any roadblocks to a student’s success, giving everyone the opportunity to succeed.
Stickers highlighting the availability of the anonymous reporting systems will be posted throughout FUSD facilities and with staff and students.
Posters featuring the QR code to access the Anonymous Alerts system are prominently placed throughout FUSD schools.
