What is Quick Tip?
We are always looking for ways to foster a safe, inclusive, and caring school community. We have added SchoolMessenger Quick Tip to our website to ensure that students, staff and parents have a way to report issues that may affect their peers and/or schools.
Quick Tip allows school administrators to receive tips and to respond proactively to issues that impact the school or individual students. The reported issues range from bullying to weapons/threats.
Students, staff, parents and other stakeholders can visit the district website and click the Quick Tip logo. Users can identify which schools receive the tip, select an appropriate topic from the dropdown 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 non-anonymously.
The district’s Quick Tip app is available as a free download for both iOS (iTunes App Store) and Android devices (Google Play.) Users can search for “quick tip” to find the app which is free. If you download the app, you will be prompted to enter a location code. This code will link your app to the district. The location code is Pawling.
Please note that in an emergency, users should call 911, or in the case of a mental health crisis, the Dutchess County Helpline at 845-485-9700. Tips will not be monitored outside of school hours, on student non-attendance days, weekends, school breaks (including summer) or holidays. All messages left during these times will be reviewed the next school day.
