The Bully Box is a box kept in the guidance office and nurses office. Students can write about any incidents where they have been bullied or where they have seen someone bullied. What is the purpose of the Bully Box? Students are often afraid to tell staff about bullying incidents at school. The Bully Box provides a confidential and anonymous way for students
