Harassment, intimidation, or bullying is defined as a gesture, an electronic communication, or a written, verbal, physical, or sexual act that is reasonably perceived to have the effect of:

1. Harming a student physically or emotionally, damaging a student's property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of personal harm or property damage; or

2. Insulting or demeaning a student or group of students causing substantial disruption in or substantial interference with the orderly operation of the school.

Talk With Your Child
"I"m worried about you. Are there any kids at school who may be picking on you or bullying you?"
Focus On Your Child
Never tell your child to ignore the bullying. What the child may "hear" is that you are going to ignore it. If the child were able to simply ignore it, he or she likely would not have told you about it.
Don't blame the child who is being bullied.
Listen careful and gather as many details as possible
Sympathize with your child. Tell him/her that bullying is wrong and that you are glad he/she had the courage to tell you about it.
Do NOT encourage physical retaliation
Contact someone at the school. Please understand that if we don't know about the situation we can't help.
Help Your Child Become More Resilient To Bullying From Others:
Help to develop your child's talents and positive attributes.
Encourage your child to make contact with friendly students in class.
Help your child meet new friends outside of the school environment.
Teach your child safety strategies. Who can they go to for help? When is it appropriate?
