Safe 2 Tell

All kids should feel safe here at Columbine and in our community. If your child is involved in or witnesses any type of behavior that is hurtful or unsafe, we would like to know about it. Please report it to our office in person or give us a call at 249-2581. If you or your child do not feel comfortable reporting an incident in person, we offer an alternative option through Safe 2 tell. Safe 2 tell gives our students, parents and school, another avenue for reporting behaviors that are hurtful or unsafe. Click on the safe 2 tell logo for more information.
