Bullying Prevention at NNPS
Childhood bullying is a significant problem nationwide. It can cause school absenteeism, mental and physical stress, poor school performance, poor self-esteem, and, in some cases, school violence. Statistics show that 160,000 children in the United States miss school each day as a result of being bullied. School district administrators, teachers and parents can play a critical role in creating a climate where bullying is not tolerated. It has been proven when adults and children stand together, bullying ends.
As a school division, we work continuously with students, staff, family members and community organizations to make sure that safety is a top priority. NNPS has several bullying-prevention programs in place and a host of other initiatives aimed at maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for our students.
NNPS has put programs in place to ensure our students have a safe and nurturing environment in which to learn. But our partnership of students, parents, family members and others is the most important link in this effort. We invite anyone who knows of a bullying or other safety concern in our schools to contact us so that we can work together in keeping schools the safest place possible for our children. Please report any information online so we can continue to provide a safe school environment for all, or call the NNPS Crime Line at (757) 591-3800.
