Resilience - The ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens.
Consider challenging yourself to find ways each day to focus on the strengths you have, your courage within, and the silver linings that are all around us. Please see this month's daily suggestions to help build your resiliency during challenging times.
"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." ~ Arthur Ashe

Safe2Say is a valuable resource that has been set up by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide a method for anyone to report a concern about a student or group of students 24/7. Safe2Say has been used quite a bit throughout this year and especially during this time away from school. With that, there are some important reminders that I'd like to share so that we can best support our students:
- If you put in a tip, please check back often for communications. The tip line is monitored 24/7 at the state level. The tip is sent to the school and/or police if it is deemed "Life Safety" immediately. It is sent in the morning if it is determined to be "Non-Life Safety." I will respond as soon as I am able to do so - this will always depend on the timing and nature of the tip.
- It is important to include as much information as possible, especially now when we are not able to meet with individuals in person. If you have evidence of your concerns, please share these with us. You can attach pictures and videos in the Safe2Say system.
- Just like when we are in school, it is always best to try and contact Mrs. Davis, Mr. Monk, or myself directly if it is not a matter of life safety. We will be the ones to work through the concern and it is helpful to be able to speak directly with you.
Please remember that Safe2Say is statewide system that is used in collaboration with the State Attorney's Office, emergency responders, and school officials. It is important to know that tips are reviewed on the state level before being passed to the local police and/or school authorities. Please consider the purpose of your tip - Is it to provide another person with a way to receive help? Is it preventing an act of violence? Is it something that needs to involve local and state authorities? While the system is anonymous, abuse of the system will not be tolerated and actions will be taken if it is determined that the system is being used inappropriately.
Are you signed up for ePrep? IT'S A FREE TEST PREP PROGRAM (SAT, ACT, PSSA). See Mr. Pecic in the Library.
Central Bucks High School South strives to provide the best educational experience possible. In order to maximize learning, students must engage in assigned work and study adequately to prepare for assessments. The learning process is hindered when students cut corners, “borrow” the work of others, or use unauthorized assistance during tests and quizzes.
For this reason, CB South has developed an Academic Integrity policy intended to guide the behavior and academic choices of our students. All students should take time to familiarize themselves with this policy.
