  • P3 Campus

    Wednesday, November 8, 2023

    Good morning,

    As was stated in the annual Security Reminder that was sent at the end of August, the Clark Schools and Clark Police have partnered with P3 Campus to provide a reporting tool for life safety concerns.  Please see the link below to the reporting form for this service.  A flyer containing a QR code to this form is posted on the district website at www.clarkschools.org under the “More” tab towards the top right of that page and then the “Security” sub-tab.  This flyer will also be posted on each school’s website.  This platform is one for our students, staff, and community members to communicate with us and the local police department regarding any life safety concerns.  We ask for the detail provided through the form to be as thorough as possible so that the concern can be effectively followed up on.

    P3 Campus Reporting Form

    Thank you in advance for your respect for this platform as another means of keeping our students, staff, and schools safe.  Please know that all reports are filtered directly to the Clark Police Department, and false reports will be handled in the same manner that a false 911 call would be handled.

    This service will be in place at the end of the workday today (Wednesday, November 8).

    Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day.
