  • Anonymous Alert/Bully Reporting

    Anonymous Alerts® allows students or parents to quickly, easily, and anonymously report urgent information to school officials across all of our school campuses. Students or parents can report bullying, depression, illegal substances and other sensitive topics through private messages to our administration. The mobile app and Web-based reporting system provides secure 1-way or 2-way encrypted messages. All reports remain completely anonymous, although submitters have the option to reveal their identity if they prefer to have a person-to-person discussion. The reporting system is available on the Internet at: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/willisisd or click on the graphic below to download the Anonymous Alerts app.
