Bullying Prevention Week

Dear Families,

As MSD Warren focuses on investing in meeting the needs of the whole child we recognize the need for additional curriculum and resources to support our students and staff. As an addition to the Second Step social emotional learning curriculum that all students K-8 participate in we have added the Second Step Bullying Prevention curriculum to support

citizenship and communication for students and adults alike.

The first lesson in this curriculum will be delivered by your student’s Core Connect teacher next week. Additional lessons will be taught throughout the rest of the school year. Here is what you can expect your student(s) and Warren Township employees to be embracing during this very important week of learning to better recognize, report and refuse

bullying and harassment.

● Recognize bullying and harassment

● Recognize verbal, relational, cyber, and physical bullying

● Recognize different types of harassment

● Report bullying and harassment to a caring adult

● Refuse to let bullying happen to themselves or others

● Be a upstander who stands up and is part of the solution to bullying and harassment.

During the school year as the bullying prevention lessons are taught your child will bring home simple, engaging activities through a Family Communication document. You may be familiar with these from other Second Step lessons. These activities give your child another chance to practice his or her skills for handling bullying. They will also help you understand

what your child is learning about bullying and how you can assist your child if he or she needs to respond to bullying.

For bullying prevention to work, everyone at school needs to be involved. All of our staff received training on.

● Recognizing and respond to bullying and harassment

● Supporting children who have been bullied or harassed

● Correcting behaviors of children who are bullying or harassing

● Using strategies that support a positive school and classroom climate

We need your help too! Make sure your child knows to tell you or someone at school if he or she is being bullied, or if he or she knows about someone else being bullied. Give your child the clear message that it is never okay to bully others.

For more information on our schools’ anti-bullying policy please refer to the Student Success Handbook which can be found under the Explore then Parent section of our website. You can report bullying directly to the child’s school or call the bullying hotline and report to 317-532-3049.

Thank you for helping us keep our school safe and a respectful place where everyone

can learn.

Culturally Responsive Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS)

Welcome to Culturally Responsive Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS) at Stonybrook Intermediate & Middle School. Your students have started the Second Step program in their CORE Connects over the past couple weeks. This is our social emotional learning curriculum here at Stonybrook. Topics such as listening, empathy, calming down, and managing emotions will be discussed this year.

This week students will also be talking about Bullying Prevention and Awareness in their CORE Connect Class. Students will be taking a pledge to anti-bully after the presentation.


Joke of the Week: Q: Why did closing her eyes remind the teacher of her classroom?

A: Because there were no pupils to see.

This includes students coming to school, please remind them to have a mask with them before leaving the house.

Our supply of masks is running low. We appreciate your help!

Athletic Event Safety

We are excited to be able to offer our students opportunities to safely participate in athletics during the current Covid -19 pandemic. In order to keep you, your family, our staff, and your student athletes safe, we are only admitting 250 total spectators into Stonybrook events to comply with MCPHD and IHSAA social distancing guidelines. Spectators for all sports will be limited to immediate family members.

  • Home Football and Volleyball: Tickets will go on sale on site 45 minutes before the start time of the event and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Tickets will be $5 general admission, $3 for children ages 5 and up, and $13 for a family pass which includes two adults and two children.
  • Employees planning to attend games will be granted entrance for just the badge holder.
  • Away game/match ticketing and safety information will be determined by the opposing school. Ticketing and safety information for away games/matches will be provided to coaches for distribution as soon as it is available to ADs. Plan on masks being required.

Game Day at Stonybrook

  • Masks are REQUIRED for admission and must remain on while at an event. Any spectator not wearing a mask will be denied entry or asked to leave.
  • Family units may sit together but must be using 6 feet of social distancing between another family unit.
  • Avoid congregating near concessions or bathrooms when applicable.
  • Home Fans are encouraged to arrive 45-60 minutes prior to start time, while away fans are encouraged to arrive 20-40 minutes prior to start time. This will help alleviate crowding at the door/gate.

Canvas App

I'd like to share some parent resources for Canvas. There is a Canvas app for parents that will allow you to communicate with your children's teachers and access your student's instructional material. Click on this link to watch the video.

Have a wonderful week.

Principal Smith


For the 2020-2021 school year, Warren Township has transitioned to a new student information system called Synergy allowing our parents and caregivers to have improved access to school information through the parent portal called ParentVUE. We are aware that at his time some students’ attendance records are reflecting students are absent, when in fact they were present. This is mostly the case for our students who are attending school VIRTUALLY on application days or in the VIRTUAL option full-time. We want to assure you that teachers are keeping accurate attendance records and that we are working to correct attendance records for all our students.

Attention 7th and 8th Grade Student and Parents!

School District Publications/News Media Use

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or Stonybrook. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify our office in writing that you do not want this type of information released

Immunization Reminder

In order for our schools to be in compliance with the state laws regarding immunizations, please make sure that your student(s) have their updated information on file with our school's nursing staff. All student vaccines must be on file and up to date by September 21, 2020 to avoid exclusion. Please make our nursing staff is aware of any upcoming appointments for vaccines, or if there are any medical or religious objections to your student receiving his or her vaccines.

PLEASE inform our nurse of any chronic health conditions that the school should be made aware of, and that your student's medical emergency information is up to date.
