Safe School Helpline

posted Mar 21, 2018, 7:25 AM by Jennifer Harvey

New Hope is always trying to keep our students as safe as possible. Children are being sent home with information today about our new Safe School Helpline, which is dedicated to New Hope. This service allows our school community to anonymously report any wrongdoing, threat, bullying, or safety concern via phone, text, app, or web reporting. It also has live, mental health counselors to help troubled students who are suicidal, bullied, or simply having a tough time. Of course, parents, children, and community members can still report directly to the school as well.
