— Help is just a phone call away for teachers at a Wake County school.

Alltel and Nokia donated five wireless phones to Penny Road Elementary School Thursday.

The school's principal say the phones will be a tremendous asset in terms of safety and communication in and out of the classroom.

Each phone has 300 free minutes a month.

The phones and service were donated as part of the ClassLink Program, which is available to schools all across the country.
