Up Coming Events at Merritt:
The State of Michigan has started a new program called OK2SAY. The purpose of the program is to provide students, parents, and teachers a confidential way to report threats to their safety. Upon receipt of a tip, specially trained OK2SAY operators at the Michigan State Police will address the immediate need and, as necessary, forward the information to the appropriate responding agency or organization. Most tips are expected to go to schools and local law enforcement agencies, but in some instances, tips may go to local community mental health agencies or the Michigan Department of Human Services.
State officials anticipate OK2SAY will log tips on a variety of issues involving student safety, including: weapons possession, bullying, substance abuse, and suicide threats.
Tips can be submitted though the following ways:
Call: 1-8-555-OK2SAY, 1-855-565-2729
Text: 652729 (OK2SAY)
OK2SAY App: Available for download in app stores for iPhone and Android.
