The Collingswood Public School System wants each student to come to experience a safe and bully-free educational environment. Bullying comes in many forms, including new, high-tech cyber-bullying. Please consult these resources for information on the prevention of bullying. Students should never hesitate to see their counselor or an administrator if they experience bullying in school.
StopBullying.gov provides information from various government agencies on what bullying is, what cyberbullying is, who is at risk, and how you can prevent and respond to bullying.
Bullying is intentional tormenting in physical, verbal, or psychological ways. It can range from hitting, shoving, name-calling, threats, and mocking to extorting money and treasured possessions. Some kids bully by shunning others and spreading rumors about them. Others use email, chat rooms, instant messages, social networking websites, and text messages to taunt others or hurt their feelings.
