We believe that all students should feel safe and comfortable at school everyday. We take the following actions to ensure students are safe and comfortable:

Jane Addams Anti-bullying rules

  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and at home.

Olweus anti-bullying Program

 

The Olweus Anti-bullying program aims to prevent bullying at Addams and provides students with problem solving skills to utilize during a bullying incident. Specifically, students learn;

 

1. Gain an understanding of the roles involved in bullying incidents

2. Build empathy for others

3. Learn skills that enable them to take action to help in a bullying situation

4. Learn the difference between conflict and bullying

5. Learn about the negative effects of bullying

 

The program lessons are taught both in health seminars during physical education and advisory classes.

Individual Anti-Bullying Guidance and counseling

Throughout the school year, our counseling team prioritizes intervening to stop any bullying incidents. We provide individual guidance for both the target and the perpetrator of bullying. We work with parents to ensure issues are resolved and students remain safe and comfortable at school. We encourage students and families to always contact us for support with anything related to bullying.

Conflict mediators

Our conflict mediators help us to resolve peer conflicts that occur during the school year. They will support positive relationships between students at our middle school.
