Bullying

At Stone Valley, we make every effort to ensure that students feel safe, secure and successful at school.  Each year we survey our students to improve our supervision as well as seek feedback on our current programs.  Some of our students have shared what they can do to stop bullying at Stone Valley:

“Stick up for other people and stand by them. Show them that they have someone to talk to.” – 7th Grade Girl

“Students can help prevent students from being bullied by standing up for them and doing what's right or making them feel good about themselves.” – 6th Grade Girl

“Tell a teacher and speak up.” – 7th Grade Boy

“Students can help other students from being bullied by letting teachers know if they see someone being bullied.” – 7thGrade Girl

All students, employees, parents and community members should report incidents of suspected bullying immediately to Mrs. Johnson at kcjohnson@srvusd.net or Mr. McElroy at smcelro@srvusd.net.  An investigation will be conducted to determine if bullying occurred and the corrective action needed.
