Rantoul Township High School Tips

The RTHS School Resource Officer Tips website was created to provide students, parents and community members an anonymous and confidential way to report any threats of violence, bullying, weapons, drugs or other safety concerns within the Rantoul Township High School. You should message the website only in those situations where there is no immediate threat of violence to you, students or staff. Any risk of immediate harm should be reported to 911. When you message the Tips website, make sure you are ready to give an accurate, detailed account of the situation. The RTHS school resource officer will then asses the situation and make a determination about the appropriate response.

Messages can be made anonymously; however leaving contact information would be helpful in an investigation.
