District Text-A-Tip Line

Carynton School District Text-A-Tip Line: 412-513-7932

The Text-A-Tip hotline is a new way for students and parents to communicate with administration and law enforcement. Students or parents can confidentially send a text to the school district about concerns they may have for their safety, the safety of others, or express a concern about a student and their well-being.

Carlynton School District’s Text-A-Tip Line reporting system is intended to facilitate the reporting of sensitive information including information regarding student safety, violence, drug use, or students who may be in need of any type of assistance. This information may be shared with school officials such as principals, school counselors, and other administrative personnel. The tip line is NOT an emergency hotline. If you are reporting an event that could immediately affect your school community, please call 911.

The Carlynton School District encourages students and parents to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity such as vandalism, theft, the sale of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned. Students who discover information on social networking sites like Snap Chat, Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube and confidentially text a tip could help prevent a tragedy. For urgent matters or emergency situations, please call 911 and speak to a trained dispatcher.

If you prefer to leave a voice message instead of texting, please call 412-429-2500, ext. 1113.
