From Admin/OC/Mental Health:
We care about our students and want to ensure they are having safe and positive interactions with each other virtually. If there is cyber bullying that is going on, we want to know about it. 
Bullying is defined (by Second Step) as actions that:
  • are repeated (or have the potential to be repeated)
  • involve a real or perceived imbalance of power
  • have the intent to cause physical or emotional harm
  • have a significant impact on the bullied student
Cyber bullying is bullying with electronic technology (i.e. text, emails, Google Chat, social media websites, etc.) If you notice there is cyber bullying going on please contact Safe2Tell at 1-877-542-7233 or at https://safe2tell.org
