As we transition to a distance learning platform, it’s important to talk to your students about cyberbullying and how to respond if they witness or experience virtual interactions that are defined as cyberbullying.
Cyberbullying is the use of technology, including internet access and cell phones, to harass, hurt, embarrass, humiliate, or intimidate another person. Bullying can occur in both physical spaces and digital spaces.
Due to the increase in engagement of social media, more bullying and peer harassment may be seen online. In your conversations with your child(ren), please remind them to report these interactions to you and school counselor via email or phone call. As a reminder to our community, acts of cyberbullying are taken seriously and may result in disciplinary actions included in our Code of Conduct. Please utilize the linked resources to assist as you talk to your child(ren) about cyberbullying.
