School Safety

Pennsylvania Bullying Hotline

 1-866-716-0424

 

On February 29, 2016, Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera announced a partnership with the Highmark Foundation and the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention to operate the Department of Education's Bullying Prevention Consultation helpline. 

 

The helpline serves as a resource to Pennsylvania students, families, and schools to help them develop strategies to address bullying and resolve bullying situations.

 

Messages can be left 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be returned Monday-Friday during normal business hours. 



Bristol Township is committed to providing a safe, positive learning environment for district students. We recognize that bullying creates an atmosphere of fear and intimidation, detracts from the safe environment necessary for student learning, and may lead to more serious violence.
