As part of Fairfax County Public Schools' continuing efforts to maintain safe schools, a confidential and anonymous Tipline is available to students, parents, staff, and other members of the FCPS community.

School administrators encourage students, staff and community members to report school safety issues, such as threats, unsafe or dangerous situations, illegal drug activity, theft,  gang activity, existence of weapons, vandalism and concerns about student wellness. Tipline users may identify themselves or remain anonymous.

You may submit your anonymous tips using any of the following methods:


SchoolMessenger - Quick Tip Form

SMS Text

Individuals wishing to report activity also have the option to text their concerns to:

888-777; keyword TIP FCPS

Please remember to include the name of the affected school/facility when reporting.  An automated banner will respond, allowing the person to text information. 
You may receive a response in return asking for additional information. The responder is NOT able to see your name or phone number.

The Tipline phone number is 571-423-2020.
