Bullying Prevention

Last week we shared some information about Cyberbullying, how to recognize it and how to address it. We continue on that topic this week with an article that was published in the Charleston City Paper. Our very own SEL counselor, Heather Anderson, was interviewed for this piece.

Measures needed to improve students’ online safety by Chelsea Grinstead

Elections for student council representatives for each homeroom have either been held or will be held by this Wednesday. Each grade level will have their own student council made up of one representative from each homeroom. The first topic for discussion at our Student Council meetings next week will be about how students are feeling about bullying at Camp Road and what they think would help them and their classmates feel safe and comfortable.

News From Guidance

This Wednesday all of our Camp Road students will have the opportunity to participate in a program from the South Carolina Department of Corrections call Operation Get Smart during their first related arts block. Operation Get Smart is a crime prevention/public awareness program sponsored by the South Carolina Department of Corrections in an effort to reduce crime and the rate of incarceration. The program is aimed primarily at youth in an effort to deter them from making similar mistakes and poor decisions resulting in criminal behavior and prison sentences and, subsequently, prevent others from being victimized and experiencing needless suffering.

Please review the Operation Get Smart Flyer for more information.

If you'd like to view the presentation that students will see, you can view it here.

An opt out permission slip will be sent home tomorrow. If you do not wish for your child to participate in the Operation Get Smart presentation, please return this opt out form to your child's guidance counselor by Wednesday morning.

School Technology Information You Need to Know...

Students should NOT bring their Chromebook chargers to school. Please charge devices at home each evening. Chargers tend to disappear at school, and we have no way to track them. Students will be responsible for the cost of replacing lost chargers, so please don’t let your student bring the charger to school!

A reminder about the CCSD fee structure for damages and loss of chromebooks:

  • Negligent/Accidental Breakage - No charge for first incident per school year $50 per incident for each subsequent event
  • Intentional Vandalism - $300.
  • Stolen Device - No cost if a police report is provided
  • Lost Device - $300
  • Lost Charger - $40

Stay in the loop with your child's academics!
