Bullying

Posted by:

Bullying and cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and/or bias behaviors are unsafe behaviors that do not reflect respect for others as defined by the Code of Student Conduct. If your child is a target of one of these behaviors, you can report this using the Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation Reporting Form that is available on the school website (find resources and form here) or from the main office or the school counseling office. Students can also report directly to a staff member. When a situation that involves any of these behaviors is reported, staff members will respond quickly and will provide a practical, private, and safe place to report.
How to Tell If Your Child/Student Is Being Bullied...
   • Change in school performance
   • Absenteeism
   • Truancy/drop out
   • Peer rejection
   • Fear of social situations
   • Alienation and loneliness
   • Poor self-esteem
   • Chronic illness

What Can You Do?
   • If the bullying is occurring at school, contact the teacher, school counselor, and/or administrator.
   • Ask your child’s teacher questions about his or her interactions with other children.
   • Look for help from the school counselor with social skills, assertiveness, or friendship skills training.

If it is determined by an administrator that bullying or cyberbullying, harassment, intimidation, hazing, and/or bias behaviors have occurred, the students involved in these behaviors will receive support from a school counselor, school psychologist, school social worker, pupil personnel worker, or school health staff person to be sure that everyone involved in the incident feels safe and supported and understands how to avoid these situations in the future.
