Dear Parents,

At  Niobrara Public Schools we are dedicated to providing a safe and secure learning environment for all of your children and our students.  However, bullying has become a serious challenge across the Nation.  Recent studies have shown that over 20% of students feel unsafe at school due to direct or observed teasing, threats, bullying, and other stressors. 

We believe in partnering with our parents to combat bullying and school violence.  Bullying at school affects and is affected by what happens after school, at home and even online.  We must work together to take immediate actions and help our students, whether they are a bully, a victim of bullying or a bystander. 

Niobrara Public Schools has implemented a web-based incident reporting tool called TIPS.  TIPS is a comprehensive platform for reporting, tracking and documenting incidents and concerns.  TIPS empowers students, parents, teachers and community members to be heard and to anonymously report warning signs and trouble. The goal of TIPS is prevention and to help identify red flags and warning signs before an incident occurs or escalates. 

If you or your child would like to report a concern, please visit the school’s website and click on the TIPS Incident Report button.  All reports are confidential and your name will only be shared if you provide your contact information.  As soon as a report is made, all of the appropriate school personnel will receive an instant notification, review the incident and take appropriate actions.

By working together, we can help prevent incidents from occurring and ensure the safety and security of our students.  With TIPS students and parents can report:

 

  • Bullying
  • Cyberbullying
  • Threats to Harm
  • Suicidal Threats
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Theft
  • Violence
  • Drug/Alcohol Abuse
  • Weapons
  • And much more 

 

If you or your child has an immediate concern, please call us at (402)-857-3322 or 3323 to schedule a discussion as we want to help address your issue as soon as possible. 

 

Thank you,

 

Angie Guenther
