Tips for students:

If bullied, tell your parents, teachers and/or school administrators.

Telling is NOT tattling if you feel hurt or scared. It is reporting

Do not retaliate or get even

Respond evenly without losing your temper and in a firm voice or say nothing and get away.

Stand by each other. If you watch, laugh, or ignore, you are part of the problem. It is your school!!!!

Act Confident

Be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are

Avoid unsupervised areas

Do not bring expensive items to school
