Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation (TVSC)
is pleased to announce its new Safe Schools Hotline, a service that provides a means of reporting incidents or possible threats before they happen, so TVSC can take the steps necessary to prevent them from taking place.
TVSC Safe Schools Hotline is a telephone application (voice or text message) that allows students, parents, and members of the community to report threats of violence, bullying, suicide, theft, gang activity, drug use, vandalism or any other concern at any TVSC school. With this telephone application, when someone calls the number to report a threat or problem, the caller is prompted to leave a message along with any other important information.  The message is immediately transmitted via telephone, cell phone and email to the building administrators and the TVSC school resource office.  TVSC has the ability to manage the calls through a web site, where school officials can see and download call reports.  A full transcript of the call is transmitted with each email so that the administrator has first-hand knowledge of the call received.  A school administrator will evaluate the potential threat level and respond accordingly. 
In a world where unthinkable happens somewhere nearly every day, tools such as the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline are needed to help protect students and staff from a tragedy that no parent, teacher, or school administrator wants to deal with - ever.  If you have first-hand knowledge of a potentially harmful situation, please call the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline at (574) 387-3825.

Students -
TVMS's 7th grade Social Studies classes are raising money to provide aid for HUNGER and MALARIA. Both are serious issues that impact the world, but our efforts will be directed to those affected in Africa.  Last year we were able to raise approximately $500 and would like to surpass that this year.  This is a free-will donation that can be made in Mr. Allen's room or during lunch.  This fundraiser will last until the end of the school year.  HELP US HELP THOSE IMPACTED BY HUNGER AND MALARIA!

Mentone EMS
