What Is Bullying?
Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and involves a real or perceived imbalance of power or strength. Bullying behavior is repeated or has the power to be repeated over time.
Bullying can be verbal, physical, psychological and can even extend to digital communications through electronic devices. Cyberbullying includes the transmission of messages, text, sound, image, video, websites, social media, or other digital means to bully another person. Whether done in person or online, the effects of bullying are the same and are completely unacceptable.
If you think your child is being bullied, please talk to the Principal, Vice Principal, or Principal's Designee, i.e., School Counselor, School Psychologist, or School Nurse.
