The Greendale School District today issued a letter to parents asking community members to join a conversation about safe schools and anti-bullying efforts.
"The Greendale Schools and our community hold a shared belief that a child needs to feel safe physically, mentally and emotionally in order to perform to the best of his or her ability," the letter, signed by Superintendent John Tharp and School Board President Joe Crappito states, going on to reference the recent bomb scare at the high school. "...This incident provides us with a clear opportunity to take a closer look at school climate and the student experience in our schools."
To that end, the district is forming a task force aimed at combating problem behavior and bullying, as well as rewarding positive choices and actions. Topics will be discussed at the Parents as Partners Conference on Oct. 17.
