According to the KMS Student Handbook, bullying “is verbal (orally or in writing), or physical conduct that is intended to intimidate, injure, degrade, or disgrace another student or person . . .”
KMS students define bullying as “being mean,” “making someone feel bad,” and “picking on someone.”
How does bullying harm our kids?
Students who are bullied can have more mental and physical health problems. They can develop low self-esteem or depression.
