Safety Tipline

Keep your school safe! Tipline communication is confidential and anonymous.

If your tip is an emergency and immediate assistance is necessary, please dial 911.

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 and community members to report school safety issues, such as threats, dangerous rumors, drug use, theft, harassment, gang activities, existence of weapons, and vandalism. Tipline users may identify themselves or remain anonymous. Calls will not be traced.

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:

Please remember to include the name of your 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.
