Acknowledge, Care, Tell during COVID-19
As part of Evanston Township High School’s commitment to wellbeing, we have adopted ACT® which means “Acknowledge, Care, Tell”. We believe that each of us plays a role in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our students and encourage every member of our school community to follow the three steps of ACT to help maintain a safe, positive learning environment:
- Acknowledge warning signs and anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, worried or frightened. Recognize something is wrong and take it seriously.
- Care for students/your friends; listen and tell them how much you care about them.
- Tell a trusted adult if you are worried or have concerns about your wellbeing or the wellbeing of others. ETHS students who need support may contact the Social Work Office at 847-424-7230. For emergency concerns during the day and outside of school hours, please call 911.
The Incident Reporting Form (Formulario de Reporte de Incidentes) is also an option to report incidents of Bullying, Harassment, Intimidation, Concerning or Threatening Behavior, Hate Incidents, Retaliation, Sexual Harassment, Unwanted or Inappropriate Touch, and Sexual Assault.
