The Lisbon School District wants to continue to become proactive in their approach to making sure bullying incidents are minimized as much as possible. In continuing to be a zero-tolerant school, Lisbon Schools are announcing that they will be implementing a new safety service called “School Hotline”. The hotline will allow students, parents, staff and community members to anonymously report potential threats of violence, bullying, drug use sexual harassment or any other potential issue concerning students in the district.
To anonymously report a problem to administrators anyone can dial the toll free number 1-855-631-4608 and leave a message. The caller ID is not captured on the call to protect the identity of the caller. The call is free to the caller and can call from any phone at any time. Once the message is left it is immediately transmitted to administrators.
In making the announcement Superintendent, Joseph Siefke said “The purpose of the School Hotline Service is to give students, parents, staff and members of the community every opportunity to help stop problems before they happen or tell us about an on-going problem they are aware of without having to be identified or get involved with the situation. We ask everyone to write down the toll free number (1-855-631-4608) and keep it handy in case they see or hear something that we need to know about. We want people in the school and community to “err on the side of caution” and call in even if they are not sure about what they saw or heard. All it takes is one call, one piece of information, to prevent a child from being hurt. We are excited about this new safety service for our district.”
