Safe 2 Say Something


Archbishop Wood High School is committed to the safety and well-being of our students and educators.

We believe this commitment includes the implementation of programs that involve parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, local law enforcement, mental health & wellness professionals, and elected officials to take meaningful action to protect our students, staff, and community.

As a part of that effort, AWHS is joining Archdiocesan Schools and School Districts across the Commonwealth in rolling out the:

Safe 2 Say Something (S2SS) Program

Recently mandated by Pennsylvania State law, S2SS is an anonymous reporting system designed to help students and staff to recognize the warning signs and signals (especially on social media) of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others. The S2SS program trains students and school staff members to treat every warning sign seriously and to act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult and/or by reporting it anonymously via phone, mobile app, or website to the Pennsylvania S2SS Crisis Center.

Staff members will be trained to respond to and manage tips that are submitted in coordination with state and local law enforcement officials.

S2SS is based on a THREE-STEP SYSTEM

1st Step

2nd Step

3rd Step

An anonymous tip is submitted using one of the following options:

Website: https://www.safe2saypa.org/

Tipline: 1-844-SAF2SAY

Mobile App for Apple and Android Devices

All calls and tips are received by the 24/7 S2SS Crisis Center

  1. A S2SS Crisis Center analyst receives and reviews tip information.
  2. The tip is triaged and categorized as either life safety or non-life safety.
  3. The tip is then sent to school officials and law enforcement (as needed) via text, email, and/or phone call.

School officials and law enforcement intervene and/or offer assistance

  1. School officials and law enforcement (as needed) investigate, assess, and intervene with reported at-risk individuals.
  2. School officials report their outcomes into the Safe2Say Something platform and close out the tip, ensuring accountability for every tip submitted. 
Student-focused training sessions will take place in school in the coming weeks.
