An important part of preventing bullying from occurring and intervening when it does happen is the establishment of a safe way that empowers students to report things that are happening to them, or things that they may have seen happen to another student. At HMS, while we always encourage students to report to teachers or administrators when something unsafe is going on, students may feel uncomfortable doing so in person. That is why we have created an ONLINE SOCIAL CONFLICT REPORTING FORM for bullying and other social conflicts. Submissions to the form are closely monitored by administration, and all incidents reported will be investigated.
This form is linked above and can also be found on the right hand side of the HMS website. We will be sharing information about the form in homerooms in the coming week, and encourage you to talk with your child about how to use the form, should the need arise.
