WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Wentzville School District is implementing their new CyberBully Hotline.

The new hotline is being launched in partnership with SchoolReach. The purpose of the program is to create an anonymous way students, parents and guardians to report incidents of bullying, harassment or intimidation. The hotline also provides a way for individuals to share information about potentially harmful or violent acts by others.

The hotline number is (636) 234-9135. Text and voice calls both can be received at the number and is in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A designated school official will receive the messages directly. No names or other information are associated with the received messages.

In order for the District to be able to reply to a voice or text message, the call must be from a cellular phone, and the reply will be in the form of a text message. Users are encouraged to provide as much information as possible or as much as they feel comfortable providing. Anyone who would like to leave a call back number or their identity is encouraged to do so.

If parents or students have any questions or require further information, they can contact any school office, visit the CyberBully Hotline section of the District website, or visit www.cyberbullyhotline.com to learn more.
