Saying no to a bully and to bullying begins with reporting! Students are free to report bullying anonymously by using this online form. Every report will be reviewed by Mr. Crotchett and Mr. Crabtree. In many cases, students will be talked with to get more information or to simply share the report.
Students who are experiencing teasing or bullying need to be encouraged to reach out to their trusted adults for help. Parents, teachers, counselors, and your principals are here to help. Ask for time to talk with any of us or complete the anonymous report and tell us you want to meet in the description.
Students and families can learn more about bullying here.
