WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOX) – The Wentzville School District is taking a new stand against bullying on school bus.
The district and the CyberBully Hotline have partnered on a program to specifically target school bus bullying.
“Many of the large districts that we work with utilize multiple hotline numbers, but this is the first time we’ve created a hotline just for a district’s bus system,” said Margaret Schatz, National Marketing Director for the CyberBully Hotline.
Wentzville Superintendent Curtis Cain said two hotlines are needed to really understand what is going on and to get information quickly.
“The more we’re able to drill down and really get specific information I think the more properly and proactively we can address whatever the situation may be,” he told KMOX.
Students, parents and teachers can call or send a text message to the the hotline to begin the two-way anonymous conversation.
Hotline stickers with the number (636)-234-9135 clearly printed on them have been installed in each of the districts 141 school buses.
