Safe Positive Schools
Our school expectation for all students and staff is Miyo-Pimohtewin, meaning "walking in a good way".
Definition of bullying: A student is bullied when he or she is repeatedly exposed to negative actions on the part of one or more students causing emotional, psychological, and/or physical harm. These negative actions are intentional and hurtful. Bullying can be verbal, physical, electronic/on-line, relational, and reactive. Bullying involves an imbalance of power, creates fear, and is not gender specific. As a school, we work with parents/caregivers to insure each reported incident of bullying is addressed with appropriate consequences and accompanying teaching strategies to support the instigators of bullying.
Definition of conflict: Conflict is a disagreement or a difference of opinion or interests between equals. The people involved in a conflict may disagree vehemently and emotions may run high. When conflict is badly managed, it may result in aggression. In a conflict, both parties have power to influence the situation. That is their goal.
Please report any incidences of conflict or bullying to the school if your child reports any such incidences to you at home. It is not always seen by adults in the building, your help and cooperation is greatly appreciated to ensure the safety of all students.
