Bullying Prevention and Education
Thompson School District is dedicated to providing a safe school environment for all of its students. If you feel that your student has been a victim of bullying, please report your concern, orally or in writing, to any teacher or member of the school administration. Procedures provide students the opportunity to anonymously report acts of bullying to teachers and administrators; parents/guardians may file anonymous reports of suspected bullying as well. “Safe2Tell Colorado” allows individuals to anonymously leave a tip.
Bullying is defined as the use of coercion to obtain control over another person or to be habitually cruel to another person. Bullying can occur through written, verbal or electronically transmitted (cyberbullying) expression or by means of a physical act or gesture. Bullying is prohibited on district property, at district sanctioned activities or events, when students are being transported in any vehicle dispatched by the district or one of its schools, and off school property when such conduct has a nexus to school or any district curricular or noncurricular activity or event. Any student who has been found to engage in any act of bullying will be subject to appropriate action.
