In early October there will be an event to address bullying. The event will include a screening of the documentary “Bully” as well as a panel discussion with individuals who have worked on the issue of bullying such as Dr. Dorothy Espelegage from the University of Illinois and Erika Harold.

Later in the month there will be a safety forum held at Southside Elementary School (date TBD). This event will cover the topics of student safety, school safety, and community safety. Presenters will discuss these topics as well as subtopics such as internet safety.

In preparation for these events we encourage parents to submit questions they have regarding these topics.

Topics can be submitted via:

Parents are also encouraged to attend these events and participate in the discussions.
