Union Student Safety HelpLine
A safe and secure school environment is essential to the learning process. An important ingredient in achieving safe and secure schools remains alert eyes and ears. Safety is achieved when an atmosphere exists in which students are comfortable talking with adults about their concerns.
One such tool available for students is the Union Student Safety Help Line that is accessible twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week to anyone who wants to report a concern. The caller may leave a message so his or her call can be returned, or they may choose not to be contacted. You can also call COPES if this is a mental health emergency.
