If you see something, say something!
Safety is an underlying theme in everything we do, and we want to remind our school community about the importance we place on student and staff safety every day at GCS. We have recently partnered with the Safe School Helpline to help support our efforts.
The Safe School Helpline is a convenient, confidential way for anyone to anonymously report information about situations that might affect safety at our schools. The Safe Schools Helpline is free and available 24/7. Examples of threatening situations include, but are not limited to: bullying, drugs, theft, thoughts of suicide, violence or weapons. This number does not replace 911. Please call 911 if you know that an emergency is occurring.
To report a situation, call 1-800-418-6423 or 1-800-4-1-VOICE (ext. 359), text TIPS to 614-426-0240 or complete an online report: www.safeschoolhelpline.com.

In addition, trained counselors are available 365 days per year to talk with persons seeking assistance in coping with suicidal thoughts, depression or feelings of loneliness and loss. Callers can press option ‘3’ when prompted.
