Cyberbullying ramps up over the summer break for many students. Cyberbullying can be just as dangerous and hurtful as bullying that takes place in person. Parents need to remain vigilant during the summer break and remain mindful of any signs of bullying. Many students attend summer school where bullying can sometimes more easily take place because teachers and faculty tend to have a lower awareness and a higher student to teacher ratio. All students deserve to be free of bullying and feel safe. If you think your child has been a victim of bullying seek help immediately, do not take a passive stance. If necessary, file a report with your local police department if the summer school has no reporting mechanism like BRIM in place.
