Santan School-Wide Bully Program - Olweus
• What is Bullying?
• A person is bullied when he or she is exposed,
repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on
the part of one or more other persons, and he or
she has difficulty defending himself or herself.
• Expressed in more everyday language one
might say Bullying is when someone repeatedly
and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful
things to another person who has a hard time
defending himself or herself.

Santan School-Wide Bully Program Olweus

Classroom Lessons)

• We will try to include students who are left out.
• If we know that somebody is being bullied, we
home.

Volunteers
• We love to have family members- parents,
see your teacher if you are interested in
volunteering.
• While in the classroom, you will sometimes be
working with students, and/or viewing student
work and behavior. In order to maintain a
professional atmosphere where students are safe
to work, learn, and play at their own levels, it
is essential that we keep all observations
confidential. Out of respect for the students, we
ask that you do not share private information
about students that you may witness in the
classroom with other people. Children perform at
varying learning levels and have different
guidelines, we can ensure that information about
your child will be kept private as well.
• Thank you for your understanding and cooperation
on this policy. We look forward to working with
you this year!

Fridays.
•  Dismissal
• Please be sure to send an email or a note with
your child anytime he/she will be going home a
different way than usual (bus rather than walk,
