West Virginia Safe Schools Helpline

  • What is the Safe Schools Helpline? A toll free phone number that anyone can call to report information that may have a negative impact on students, staff or property at any school in West Virginia.

    1-866-SAFE-WVA

    • It is staffed 24/7 – so a person will always answer, never a recording.
    • It’s a statewide number – so no matter what school the information concerns or where you are located when calling, it’s the same number.
    • It’s free – from within and outside of the state’s borders.
    • It is anonymous – your identity will always be protected and remain private.
