Last Updated: 5/8/2019 5:18 PM

Are you concerned about the emotional and mental health of your own child or another child?

Please contact your child's school counselor, as we are here to help.  If you want to make an anonymous report about a child who appears to be experiencing a crisis, or to report any safety concern including bullying, please use our SafeSchools Alert system.  SafeSchools Alert does not replace 911; please call 911 whenever the situation is an emergency.  #SafeCherokee
