Safe School Helpline

Safe School Helpline poster

Whether students fear being labeled a “snitch” or a community member worries about retaliation, Safe School Helpline® is designed to allow anyone to anonymously report threats of violence, weapons, drugs and alcohol, bullying, theft, sexual harassment, and even thoughts of self-harm or suicide specific to Van Wert City Schools and its students. Those wishing to make a report are encouraged to call 1-800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (418-6423) where they can leave a message. That message is then transcribed and routed to the appropriate school administrator(s) who will take action based on the content of the message. A case number is assigned to each message so those making a report can be reached if additional information is necessary, or they may edit the details provided if more information become known. School officials stress that if a student is troubled and threatening self-harm, please encourage them to call the helpline and that call will be routed to a Counseling and Crisis Center that provides 24-hour intervention, 365 days a year.


Safe School Helpline® realizes the importance of convenience so in addition to the toll-free number, individuals may text 66746 then type TIPS. Reports can also be made at www.safeschoolhelpline.com. Look for the button called Safe School Helpline® on our homepage too. Lastly, the Safe School Helpline® app is available on both Android and Apple phones.
