Later this month Hilliard Schools will begin to partner with Safe Schools Hotline. This is a free and confidential tool for our students to report threats of violence, illegal activity, or any activity they think can harm students or staff in our schools. There is a toll-free number students can call, or number they can text, or a web page where they can report their concerns and talk to a trained mental health counselor.

All students in grades K-12 will be bringing home a brochure in the coming week with more details. We will also be putting the information on all district-issued iPads and our web pages.
