Bullying Resources

What is Bullying?

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. 

Students who bully often don’t do as well in school and are at a higher risk for criminal activity as adults. 


What KMS is doing to stop bullying: 

In January 2013, we started an anti-bullying committee to stop bullying at KMS. 

We are educating parents, teachers, staff, and students about what bullying is and how to prevent it. 

We are implementing anti-bullying lessons in our 4th block classes. 

We are developing ways to find out who is bullying and who is being bullied. 

We are developing more ways to include parents in our efforts, because YOU are the most important influences on our students. 

Students and staff are expected to report bullying immediately.
 

Report incidents of bullying or being an ally here.

Parents will be notified if their child is identified as a bully. Both administration and the school counseling department will be involved.
