Beulah supports the county’s zero tolerance policy for bullying and strives to make our school a safe place for all students. Our guidance department provides anti-bullying lessons for all grade levels at the beginning of each school year and resources to assist students and teachers throughout the year. Please contact your child’s teacher, our guidance department or our administration if you have questions or concerns or need more information.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Bullying is NOT just a fact of life. Bullying affects everyone and everyone has a role to play in preventing and stopping this behavior. At Beulah we believe that all students have a right to learn in a safe and supportive environment. We work to promote a positive school climate of mutual respect with clear behavioral expectations.
We educate our school staff and students about bullying and its negative impact on others. We teach appropriate interpersonal skills for aggressors, targets and bystanders. Students learn about Anti Bullying/Promote Respect in classroom lessons with the School Counselors and in STEPP Lessons with the Child Safety Officer.
I will follow the 4 school rules to help stop bullying at my school.
- I will not bully others.
- I will try to help other students who are bullied.
- I will make a point to include students who are easily left out.
- If I know someone is being bullied, I will tell a teacher and an adult at home.
A child is being bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more people. Bullying involves an imbalance of power. Both direct and indirect bullying may include, but are not limited to:
Verbal – name calling, teasing, threatening…
Physical – hitting, pushing, kicking, intimidation
Emotional – spreading rumors, gossip, deliberate exclusion from a group or activity
Cyberbullying – the use of technology to degrade or humiliate another person or group
