Count day is extremely important for the district and individual schools. Parents, please ensure that your student logs into every class every day, especially on count day.

OCTOBER Expect Respect
Ways to Deal with Cyber bulling
Do not retaliate and write a nasty post in response.
It will only make the situation worse.
Do not take the rude comments personally nor doubt your views or beliefs.
The rude comments have little to do with you. They are more about the issues of the person making them.
Do not reread the offending comments.
This will only lead to obsession and further anger. Report the offending comments to a group moderator if possible
Understand that not everyone has your same beliefs or views.
Be open to others’ thoughts and opinions. Recognize that many people can be right. What seems like a rude comment at first glance might only be someone expressing a different opinion.
Make a 30 second rule.
After you have written something but before you post it, step away from the computer or phone for 30 seconds. When you come back, look at the message you wrote and ask yourself how you would feel if someone wrote this to you.
Take a technology break.
Turn off your phone and computer for a night and enjoy doing something free from technology such as enjoying a nice meal, meditating, or taking a warm bath.
Technology does not have to make us victims or perpetrators of bullying.
By being mindful and considerate, we can make our online experience better.
While bullying is nothing new and we all know that it is changed, finding victims not only on the playground but where they are online, there are tactics to combat it. Raising awareness about the issue, defining it as unacceptable, and sticking up for those who are bullied are ways that we will hopefully curtail this growing problem.
