Saratoga Union School District is committed to using the most effective measures to ensure the safety of our students and schools. Toward that goal, the district has implemented the Gaggle SpeakUp Safety Tip Line in order to provide a simple way for students to alert staff to threats or possible incidents of self-harm, harm to others, or harm to school facilities. Concerns such as bullying, peers or self in crisis, and other unsafe conditions can be reported quickly and anonymously by text, and/or voicemail sent to 408-359-7601 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trained Gaggle safety representatives monitor SpeakUp tips 24 hours every day, and are poised to send an email regarding non-life-threatening situations to designated school or district staff. They will also call school officials in emergency situations and may contact local law enforcement when appropriate. District staff will then follow up with parents and students as needed.
