Hoover High School receives safety honors

HOOVER, AL (WBRC) - Alabama honors Hoover High School on Wednesday.

Attorney General Troy King handed school officials "the Alabama Safe Schools 2009 Award of Excellence." This initiative has worked to assist schools in their safety efforts since the Columbine shootings.

Hoover is one of ten schools to receive the award and administrators are excited to talk about this good news.

A toll-free Alabama Safe Schools hotline was put in place back in 1999, as a way for students and adults to anonymously alert officials about potential crisis situations.

That number is 1-888-sav-kids.
