When on Campus
When on campus, orange slips can be requested by a student who is in the midst of a mental health emergency such as suicide ideation or self-injurious thoughts.
The student can ask anyone working in the office for an “Orange slip” which indicates to the office staff that the student is in need of immediate assistance and is not feeling safe.
The child will be taken to a counselor immediately who can assist in keeping the student safe.
