“See Something, Say Something”
Officer P. Shaw
The tragedy that occurred in Parkland, Fl., is a parent’s worst nightmare. I want to share with you a campaign that can help shed light on suspicious activity. The Department of Homeland Security has a campaign called “If you see something, say something.” I cannot stress this campaign message enough to our parents and students. If you or your student hear or observe any unusual items, situations, surveillance, or someone eliciting information please notify law enforcement immediately. You are able to do this one of three ways:
- Call the Grove City Division of Police: 614-277-1710
- Use the Safer Ohio tip line provided by the Ohio Department of Safety
- Call or text 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764)
- You can remain anonymous
A few reminders that can help keep our students safe:
- If you see an unattended item either in the school or outside, report that to a staff member so it can be looked at.
- Items your student may have forgotten at home can be brought to the front desk. Please do not meet your student outside of the building to deliver these items. This creates an issue of students propping open doors.
- If you are at the school and you see anyone that looks like they don’t fit in, or they seem out of place please notify a school official, and if it's after school hours please call the Grove City Police at 614-277-1710 and report it. It is always better to call than not.
We will be working with the students this year on the “see something say something campaign”, as well as the text a tip. If you have any safety concerns please don’t hesitate to call.

As you may be aware, the use of Vape Pens, JUULS, “Dab” Pens and other smoking devices are on the rise among teenagers. According to the Surgeon General, “current e-cigarette use increased 78% among high school students during the past year, including 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students, currently use e-cigarettes” (Surgeon General’s Advisory on E-cigarette Use Among Youth). Tobacco companies are advertising these devices to be “safe” alternatives to smoking and many of our teens are viewing them that way. South-Western City Schools is greatly concerned about the health and well-being of our students and there are many reasons we wish to deter students from using these devices. The large amount of nicotine and other drugs/substances that can exist in these devices as well as the danger that comes from the fact that they are in large part unregulated make these devices harmful and potentially very dangerous to our teens.
Please see the attached information to learn more about the dangers of these devices.
*Please note that the use of “dab” pens or other devices that use THC oil or any other illegal drug will result in ten days of out of school suspension and a potential recommendation for expulsion.
