Stand up to bullying

Stop Bullying: October is Bullying Prevention MonthStudents learn best and achieve their full potential when they feel safe and secure at school, on the bus, and at home. Bullying is not only a threat to the safety and well-being of our children; it's a threat to their education, as well.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a great time for all of us to acknowledge this problem and do our part to end it in our schools and our communities.

Despite the growing attention bullying has received, many children who are victims remain reluctant to discuss it with adults. That is why it is so important for parents, guardians, and other caring adults to recognize the warning signs of bullying and to make sure students have the tools they need to communicate with adults about it.
