    Report Bullying Here!  Reporting bullying or harassing behavior is the first step toward making our school a safe place for everyone. Please report bullying if you experience or witness it in school, on the bus, or at school events.

    What is Bullying? Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself. This definition has 3 important parts. First, it shows an aggressive action that is unwanted. Second, it involves a pattern of behavior over time. Finally, there is a power difference between the two people involved. A conflict between two people where name calling and even shoving occurs does not necessarily constitute bullying. If both people push and both people call names, it is most likely a conflict. However, if a child is picked on daily by a student or group of students, that is most likely a bullying situation.

    Physical intimidation or assault; oral or written threats; teasing, name calling; threatening looks, gestures, or actions; cruel rumors; false accusations and social isolation are all examples of bullying. Bullying also includes cyberbullying.
