Hopewell-Loudon has a new service provided by the state of Ohio. 844-SaferOH is Ohio's new school safety tip line. By texting or calling 844-SaferOH, you can anonymously report anything that is suspicious or endangering you, your friends, or your school. Research shows that in 81 percent of the violent incidents in U.S. schools, someone other than the attacker knew something but didn't report it for fear of being identified. This is why Governor Kasich has asked Ohio's law enforcement and education leaders to establish the confidential SaferOH tip line. This free service is available to any Ohio public or private school. Hopewell-Loudon is registered and the tip line will serve H-L 24 hours a day, whenever a student or concerned adult senses a threat to student safety. The call center guarantees the anonymity of the person who calls or texts. Tip line workers may ask for additional information, but the one who calls or texts may remain anonymous or leave contact information for follow-up. Trained professionals at Ohio Homeland Security's Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) unit answer all calls and texts to 844-SaferOH. When action is needed, TAP staff immediately forward information to the school staff member you designate. Local law enforcement agencies or others may be notified, if the situaton warrants. Tip line staff will follow-up quickly with the affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure the incident was investigated and the outcome was tracked.

If you are an Amerigas customer, please send in your Community/School Days Receipt. We receive $.02 per gallon purchased. All we have to do is collect the receipts and turn them in at the end of the school year to receive our money. So far, we have $54 just by collecting receipts! We are looking to use the money as part of our PBIS program or towards technology. Please send your receipts into the elementary or high school office.
*** New Alert System***
The ability to get information to you such as weather delays/cancellations and other school-related notifications is very important to us. It has become evident that our current alert system is not meeting our needs so we have had to switch companies. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but hope that you will find One Call Now to be more user-friendly, with the ability to deliver important alerts you need in a fast, hassle-free manner.
Due to this change, any information you may have entered in the Edulink Alert System has been disabled. Your contact information on file at school will be used for voicemail notification to your telephone. It is important to keep the school offices updated with any changes to your contact information.
If you would like additional means of contact, (text or email), or additional phone numbers please visit the Hopewell-Loudon website.
