What is Bullying?

BULLYING PREVENTION AT HIDDEN SPRINGS AND MVUSD

As always, your student's safety is our #1 priority. That does not change due to Distance Learning. We are still committed to your students feeling safe to learn while in school, in whatever format that may look like. If you have concerns about bullying, please complete this Bullying Form and someone will be in touch with you very shortly.

Message from the Counselor!

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join STOMP Out Bullying in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage schools, communities and organizations to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and put an end to hatred and racism by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of all forms of bullying on all children of all ages. We want to do our part in participating and show of support against bullying. I've created a week of challenges beginning October 5, 2020, for us all. Get ready, get set, GO!
