TCPS Pilots SafeTime App

SafeTime Logo

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The safety of our students and the security of our schools are top priorities for Talbot County Public Schools and must be a shared responsibility by all of our stakeholders. In an effort to empower our students, who oftentimes have information about potential threats well before school staff, we are introducing the availability of the SafeTime App. This pilot program strives to mitigate violent targeting of schools by enabling faster response to harmful behavior and potential threats. SafeTime is a digital system that allows students to report threatening messages and unsafe online content in a simple, easy to use interface. With the app, students can submit links, videos, images, texts and other suspicious content directly to law enforcement for assessment and response.

The SafeTime App is designed to allow for early intervention by law enforcement and social services to assist in preventing violent incidents altogether. It also allows for a prompt evaluation and response to potential emerging threats on campus that can be vital to increasing school safety.

If you are interested in  participating in the program, you can learn more on the SafeTime website at https://safetime.school and our YouTube channel youtube.com/@safetimeapp

To begin the registration process for your student to download the app, please click the following link: https://safetime.school/registration

Our multi-step registration process ensures student privacy and confidentiality. For questions regarding the registration process, please contact us at registration@safetime.school

Thank you for considering the SafeTime App and joining us in our mission to empower and protect children through timely and direct communication to enable a safer school environment.

Superintendent’s Update 9/21/23

We are back in full swing in our classrooms and on our athletic fields! I hope you’ll come out and support our Fall athletes at Easton High and St. Michaels High!This week some of our students joined me in participating in the county’s September 11th Commemoration here in downtown Easton. This is always a very somber and reflective event, and our students did a fantastic job.

I have LOVED being back in our school buildings with all of our students and staff these last few days! A terrific group of new teachers and Instructional Assistants has joined our outstanding team of educators; our Operations Team has worked hard to make sure that our buildings are SPARKLING; and our Transportation Team is back on the road to ensure our children arrive at school safely!

Superintendent’s Update 9/7/23

We had a fantastic first week of school, and I want to thank all of our TCPS Students and Families for their support and enthusiasm. We are grateful to the many community organizations who provided school supplies, backpacks, and other basic necessities so that all of our students are equipped for another great year of learning.
