District 300 Celebrates Bully Prevention Month!

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and District 300 invites the entire community to raise bullying prevention awareness by wearing a blue shirt on Monday, October 4th.

October 4th is “‘Blue Shirt Day’ of Bullying Prevention” and students and staff from all District 300 schools are invited to wear blue shirts to support bullying prevention. Community members choosing to wear blue shirts are encouraged to post photographs on social media with #GoBlueD300.

District 300 has a zero tolerance policy in regards to bullying. The District takes the safety of our students, staff, and visitors extremely seriously. Bullying is a serious social and emotional issue that our kids face every day – whether they are the bullies, the targets or the bystanders. Bullying is a safety concern and a distraction from learning. Parents play a key role in partnering with schools to prevent and put an end to bullying.

During National Bullying Prevention Month, the District will highlight resources to safely report bullying behavior. For example, District 300 offers a Safe School Tip Line where students can report bullying quickly and anonymously. Students can also contact the Safe School Tip Line at 847-551-8477 or by email at SafeSchoolTipLine@D300.org.

All District 300 students deserve to be free from worries about being bullied. Please visit our social media channels throughout October for useful National Bullying Prevention Month tips and information.
