Sandy Hook Promise Know the Signs Programs
People who are at risk of hurting themselves or others often show signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs, or dismiss them as unimportant, sometimes with tragic consequences.
Sandy Hook Promise’s evidence-based Know the Signs programs teach youth and adults how to prevent school violence, shootings, and other harmful acts. Students and educators learn how to help identify at-risk behaviors and intervene to get them the help they need. These early-prevention measures empower them to keep their schools and communities safe.
LTHS currently uses three of the Sandy Hook Promise Know the Signs Programs: Signs of Suicide, Say Something and Start with Hello. The links on this page are the power point programs for Say Something and Start With Hello that are presented to LT students throughout the year.
Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is a national, non-profit organization that was started by several members whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, 2012. The sole purpose of SHP is to prevent gun violence and violence of any kind in our schools before it happens. The SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) Club is a student run club through SHP, that is embedded in high schools throughout the country. The SAVE club also supports SHP Know the Signs programs and is a place for young people at high schools across the country to show their leadership, creativity and passion for protecting their schools and communities from violence before it happens. The LT SAVE club was started in 2018.For more information on Sandy Hook Promise or the LT SAVE Club, contact:SAVE Club sponsorSandy Hook Promise Leader
