Update from Mrs. Zellner

Thank you for all the kind words, good wishes, and support I have received since sharing my news about my hearing loss and upcoming surgery for a cochlear implant! I am excited to share I have been approved for a cochlear implant and am scheduled for surgery on October 24th! My plan is to return to work around Thanksgiving break, providing all goes well!

Please consider helping our nurse:

Did you know the PTO contributes every year to the nurse's office to support the Growth & Development program and to help supply her office with items like Band-Aids, icepacks, hand soap and facial tissues. She also supplies clothing and shoes . The nurse’s office is in need of gently used boys shoes sizes 13-5. Please consider donating. (Please no holes in shoes) If you have questions please contact Vanessa Shafer at vdwilhelmus@yahoo.com

Reporting Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying Incidences

In an ongoing effort to provide a safe learning environment, Sycamore is requesting parents, students, and staff to inform administration (or whoever) of any perceived incidences of harassment, intimidation, or bullying.

Per the Sycamore Board of Education policy JFCF, harassment, intimidation, and bullying are defined as any provoked and intentional written, verbal, electronic or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both:

1. causes mental or physical harm to the other student; and

2. is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.

To view the complete policy, visit www.sycamoreschools.org, under the Board of Education tab, scroll down to “Policies”, search for policy “JFCF”.

Sycamore will do everything possible to address any complaints of harassment, intimidation, and bullying. We encourage students, staff, parents, and community members to report this type of behavior to the district if help is needed to solve a problem.

To report an incident of harassment, intimidation, and bullying,

1. Go to the website, www.sycamoreschools.org under Academics, General Education, Parent Resources, Anti-Bullying

2. Scroll down until you see the Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying Incident Reporting Form for the individual schools.

3. Fill the form on-line and submit it electronically.

4. Hard copies of this form are available in each of the schools.

Complete the hard copy of the report form and turn it into the building principal.

The building principal or designee will promptly investigate all reported incidences.

It is difficult to investigate reported incidences that are anonymously submitted. However, every effort will be made to maintain the confidentiality of the reporter. Deliberate false reporting of harassment, intimidation, and bullying is prohibited.
