WESTSIDE SAFE SCHOOLS HOTLINE
Posted August 31, 2018
Now more than ever, students face pressures and challenges that can contribute to depression, anxiety, and other problems. They’re also the first to know when their peers are behaving in ways that raise concern. Likewise, parents or other community members sometimes have concerns, either about their own child or someone else’s.
Westside families now have another safe, easy-to-reach outlet for sharing their concerns and getting help when they need it. The Westside Safe Schools Hotline is available at 402-390-2118.
This hotline number will be printed on all WHS student ID badges and can be used by anyone who has concerns about safety, bullying, depression, suicide, substance abuse, relationship issues, or anything else that could threaten someone’s physical or emotional well-being.
The Westside Safe Schools Hotline connects callers with trained Boys Town National Hotline counselors who are available 24/7, 365 days a year. Callers are not required to give their names.
We encourage parents to talk with their children about this service should they ever need it. Thank you for your help in keeping all students safe and supported at Westside Community Schools.
