Health and Wellness Program

The St. Michael Health and Wellness Program is committed to helping students create a healthy and safe lifestyle through education, prevention strategies and empowerment. Our program exists to model good decision making that is aligned with our Christian faith. Our goal is to provide an evolving curriculum which reflects current issues and nurtures the heart, mind, body and soul of each individual student. We want to empower students to make decisions that enhance their God given potential so they may know truth, love God, and serve others.

TIPS Reporting System

It is always best to report all safety concerns and threatening situations directly to a teacher, administrator, or other adult staff member. However, if this is not possible, the Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services (TIPS) reporting system allows for reports to be made by students, parents, faculty, staff, neighbors, and anyone in the community concerned about the safety of our students and schools.

Reports can be made confidentially, and anonymously, any time you know of a concerning or threatening situation, by completing an online form. These forms can be accessed by clicking TIPS link or the TIPS link at the bottom of smacatholic.org website. Reporting a concern or threatening situation anonymously can make it very difficult for the administration to investigate or respond to the situation. If there is a possible or perceived imminent threat, the reporting party should contact 911 or the local police ASAP. School and diocesan level personnel are notified immediately when your report is submitted and your case will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken.

Examples of threats that could be reported through TIPS include instances of Assault, Bullying, Bus Incident, Cyber-bullying, Drugs/Alcohol, Parent Complaint, Possession of Weapons, School Vandalism, Self-Harm or Suicidal Ideation, Student Assistance Referral, Suspected Abuse/Safety Concern, Suspension Appeal, Threats of Violence and Truancy.
