In an effort to help students feel safe and valued in the school and community, the Holly Area Community Coalition, in collaboration with Holly High School and the Village of Holly Police Department, has started a Tip Line for students. Tip411 is an anonymous tip line designed to allow students to report incidents of drug and alcohol use, drug sales, illegal behavior and/or bullying, without being identified. Students simply text the keyword HOLLY, plus their tip to 847411 (Tip411). High School administrators will receive tips during school hours, and the Village of Holly Police Department will receive tips after hours. The Tip Line will be open for use beginning on Friday, October 18, 2013.
