Announcing CUHSD's Launch of the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System

September 20, 2023

Dear CUHSD Families:


As a school district, we are committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive and coordinated effort to improve the safety and well-being of our students and our community. To add another layer to our system of support for student wellbeing and safety, I am happy to announce the districtwide launch of the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System (SS-ARS). 


This program teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize warning signals and threats, on social media, in school, or in their community and Say Something to a trusted adult or by using the anonymous reporting system. This week students will receive information and training on the platform to submit anonymous reports. Specifically, the program educates students and adult participants to:

  • Recognize signs and threats of at-risk behaviors
  • Take every sign seriously and act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult, OR
  • Report it anonymously to the SS-ARS 24/7/365 Crisis Center via a mobile app, website, or telephone hotline
  • Sustain a curriculum and awareness campaign via student clubs, in-school activities and call-to-action weeks

The SS-ARS program is provided by Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a nation-wide non-profit organization whose programs are in 50 states – with 14,000+ schools and has trained over 12 million students and adults. They have a track record, reputation, and knowledge of how to work effectively with kids, parents, and teachers to improve school safety and culture.


All reports made to the SS-ARS will be screened by a trained professional from SHP and our local emergency partners. School personnel will be notified to take appropriate action on each report. The partnerships made with this reporting system create a more streamlined intervention system to help prevent a tragedy.


The Say Something Anonymous Reporting System has helped stop numerous instances of school violence and self-harm. We know this program will do the same for our district.

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your school site administrators. You can also find more information on the SS-ARS program on our website at
