Throughout October, the HISD SEL Department is rallying behind National Bullying Prevention Month to encourage participation in a campaign to keep all HISD students safe from bullying. The week of October 19th-24th is designated as HISD Bully Prevention Week in conjunction with the Sandy Hook Promise, "Start with Hello" campaign to raise awareness of a growing social isolation epidemic. We encourage campuses to participate virtually and encourage students and parents to join in and help raise awareness around bullying incidents. Each day during the HISD Bullying Prevention Week brings a new opportunity to participate in activities to increase awareness and reduce incidents.
The attached Toolkit contains activities that students and staff can participate in to raise awareness around bullying incidents.
