Help Stop Bullying - Stand Up and Speak Out
Saint Ambrose once said, "No one heals himself by wounding another."
At Bedford County Schools bullying prevention is an ongoing priority. We understand that if students don't feel safe in their school environment, they cannot learn and become their most productive selves.
October of each year is designated as Bullying Prevention Month, and we celebrate this effort across the district in a variety of ways in our schools such as pep rallies, writing contests, special video and radio messages, presentations and guest speakers, banners, posters, special meals and participating in Unity Day.
On Unity Day, we ask students, staff and the community to wear orange, a color associated with safety and visibility. On this day we stand united against bullying in a visible show of support.
Yet, our actions matter not just on one day but every day.
Please check out our various resources on this website. Understand the difference between bullying and conflict. Understand what it means to speak up if you witness bullying or if you are the victim of bullying. Stand up for others, be kind, and together we can rise up and make an impact on bullying.
