In a effort to foster an even safer and more caring school community, the District uses SchoolMessenger Quick Tip on its website to ensure that students, staff and parents have a voice to report issues that may affect their peers and/or schools.
Quick Tip allows school administrators to receive tips at any time and have the ability to respond in a timely manner to issues that impact the school or individual students.
Quick Tip can be accessed via any District website, the mobile app or directly at www.claytonschools.net/quicktip. Users can identify which schools receive the tip, select an appropriate topic from the drop-down list, write the message and submit the tip. There is also an option to include a photograph as appropriate. Users may choose to communicate anonymously or leave their contact information.
