NEWS FROM DR. CHAUSSEE

Last week we distributed pencils and stickers to all our students advertising the new Safe2Help hotline. The Douglas County Safe2Help hotline became active in January 2020. Safe2Help will be replacing the MPS Safe Schools hotline, however, the MPS hotline number and cards will be functional for the remainder of this year. All calls will be logged and tracked within the hotline's P3Campus software system. The hotline is a collaborative between BoysTown, Douglas County school districts and many other County wide police and social service agencies.


The service provides a way to seek help or anonymously report a situation involving another student. The app is on all students' devices from grades 5-12. The phone number is (531) 299-SAFE or 7233.
