The teachers and staff at Fairview Park City Schools are committed to providing a safe learning environment for your child. As you are aware, the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program has been instituted and followed with fidelity. At Gilles-Sweet and the Early Education Center we have provided training for all staff, instituted regular classroom meetings, held school-wide events to promote bullying prevention, adopted specific policies and procedures to address bullying, and recognized and rewarded children for prosocial behavior. However, students still have unstructured and unobserved time and may still be exposed to behaviors that will affect their self-esteem and self-confidence. Ongoing activities in society and recent events in a local school district have served as a reminder of the need to protect our students in school, as well as out of school.
We hope to eliminate bullying and the devastating outcomes that it can produce. We can do that with the help from our parents and community. Please contact your school if you feel your child is a victim of bullying or at risk for suicide. Please talk with your child if you feel he/she is a victim of bullying, at risk for suicide, or if he/she appears to have low self-esteem or self-confidence.
