*October is National Bully-Prevention Month
Our “Bully Prevention” fact for today…Bullying behavior can take many different forms. All of them are hurtful. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, & taunting. Emotional/social bullying includes spreading rumors and making insults. Cyber-bullying is bullying behavior that happens electronically with pictures or by spreading lies. Bullying is unacceptable at our school.
Attention Students and Parents
School bus drivers encounter dangerous situations daily. We could help alleviate one for them through a coordinated effort by home and school. We encourage you to wear bright clothing when walking to school in the dark hours of the morning. Also, please walk on the sidewalks and not in the street. Student safety is our primary concern!
