Bullying, hazing, and harassment are everyday occurrences in the lives of thousands of students across our nation's schools each day.
Bullying is pervasive and does not magically end when administrator and other school officials meet with the bullies and bullying victims. With the number of incidents of bullying that happens in our schools, a bullying hotline has been started. The Bullying Reporting System is now available for students, parents, and grandparents who are concerned about bullying and the effects of bullying.
Twenty-four hours each day the hotline is a line of communication to work with children and their families to positively change the behavior of bullies and their victims.
If you are being bullied, know someone who is being bullied or know of a person or group who is bullying others, please telephone 863-946-0811 ext. 149, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and leave a message.
