School Safety Phone Numbers

The Kansas Sate Department of Education in cooperation with the Kansas Highway Patrol has established a school safety hotline.  This hotline is a toll free number available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to give students, parents, and community members the opportunity to report any impending school violence.  As you are aware, students usually have knowledge of potential school violence before it occurs.  This hotline would give students the opportunity to anonymously report any potential violence.

To Report Threats of School Violence  1-877-626-8203

Personnel at the Salina Central Dispatch of the Kansas Highway Patrol will answer the hotline number.  The dispatchers will get as much information about each situation reported as the caller wishes to relay.  Upon receipt of a call, the dispatchers will notify appropriate law enforcement agencies and/or the office of the superintendent of schools depending upon the severity of the situation.

Acts of Bullying 1-800-332-6378

Parent and Youth Resource Hotline  is staffed by trained professionals and volunteers who listen to each caller’s concerns and seek to provide the caller with resources that can assist them. We strive to provide connections, empower people and transform our culture to one of kindness. The Parent and Youth Resource Hotline has the capability to communicate with all non-English speaking callers. You can also text or email 1800children@kcsl.org.
