Bullying Report Form

We take incidents of bullying very seriously, however, we cannot support your child if we do not know. If your child comes home complaining about a student who repeatedly says things, touches them or harasses them on social media, please make sure to report this to Mr. Meyer or complete the form below. In order for us to be able to prove "bullying," we must have documented incidents to show that it's "repeated." In order to ensure that your child doesn't also get consequences, encourage them to report these incidents, talk to our social worker or counselor, or visit Ms. Hawkins in Regulation Station rather than respond verbally or physically. Please help us make our school safe by reporting things to us and allowing us to properly track, report and hold students accountable. https://washington.evscschools.com/students/bullying_report_form
