October is Bullying Prevention Month

Stop Bullying. Stand Up. Speak Out.In an effort to promote awareness of school bullying, the month of October is designated as Bullying Prevention Month.  Bullying can cause school absenteeism, mental and physical stress, poor school performance, and poor self-esteem.  Our school board members, superintendent, teachers, and parents play a critical role in creating a climate in Chesapeake where bullying is not tolerated.  It has been proven when adults and children stand together, bullying ends.
