STUDENTS: USE THE HORIZON HONORS APP TO REPORT A CONCERN 24/7
Have you downloaded the Horizon Honors app?

One important area in the app is called "Quick Tip." This is allows students and other community members to anonymously report a concern or problem to their school principal. Users can upload files, including photos/screenshots. Quick Tip is another important tool in keeping our community safe.

The app is available for both Apple and Android smartphones by searching for "Horizon Honors" or using the following links:
