It’s back to school time, but unfortunately for some, that means back to bullying.
But there's a new ally to help kids in the fight.
The Kansas Children's Service League and Kansas Department of Education announced they're launching a hotline for bullying victims and their parents.
The Service League says cyberbulling isn't going away, and that prevention is vital.
To reach the 24-hour hotline, you can call or text 1-800-244-5373, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also online training courses available to professionals like teachers and coaches working with kids at www.kcsl.org.
