LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The Hardin County school district is providing a new way to help keep students safe.

The Safe School Helpline lets anyone make a report about situations that might affect school safety.

Anyone can contact the Safe School Helpline any time of the day or night to report concerns about unsafe or potentially disruptive activities or situations including drug or alcohol abuse, weapons, harassment, bullying, threats or discussions about possible suicide. All calls are completely confidential.

Users can report questionable activity in several ways:

-Call 800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (800-418-6423)

-Text TIPS to 66746

-Visit www.safeschoolhelpline.com

-Download the "Safe School Helpline" app in the App store or GooglePlay

The anonymous tips submitted to the Safe School Helpline will then be sent to HCS district administrators, school administrators and/or local law enforcement agencies.

Brochures that share information about the Safe School Helpline will be sent home with each HCS student near the beginning of the school year as well as magnets for families to place on their home refrigerators. Posters will also be placed in school hallways and classrooms.

The first day of school for Hardin County students is August 9, 2018.
