School board members, superintendents, teachers and parents can play a critical role in creating a climate where bullying is not tolerated. It has been proven when adults and children stand together, bullying ends. This is why the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) has declared October to be VSBA Bullying Prevention Month.
Childhood bullying is a significant problem nationwide. It can cause school absenteeism, mental and physical stress, poor school performance, poor self-esteem, and, in some cases, school violence. Over twenty percent of all school-aged children are bullied each year - upwards of thirteen million students.
Located on our website at the bottom of the page under Quick Links is a link to Report A Threat. Students can anonymously report any bullying that might be going on using this form. Students are welcome to report these incidents directly to teachers and other staff members, but they may not feel comfortable doing so, and the Report A Threat link allows them to do this in an anonymous format.
Bullying is not to be tolerated. Always choose to be kind, and report bullying if you see it occurring!
