 ERASE Bullying

 
Bullying isn’t just a child’s issue; it’s a school and community issue, and must be addressed with a school and community solution.

Everyone should be safe from bullying. Don't let them control you and keep you down. Help ERASE bullying starting now. ERASE is a private and anonymous online reporting tool for targets of bullying or those that witness it taking place. Some secrets aren't worth keeping. For more information or to report an incident click the icon above.​
