  3. What We Need to Remember…. • When we talk about bullying we need to respect each other’s feelings and privacy. • It is NOT okay to criticize what other people say or do as we talk about bullying. • Let’s handle this discussion maturely.

  4. Truancy • Wisconsin State Statute 118: • “Truant” means a pupil who is absent from school without an acceptable excuse for part or all of any day on which school is held. • You are considered truant when: • You are tardy for class or are not in your assigned location • You do not come to school and do not have an acceptable reason. • If you are truant: • You could receive a citation from law enforcement • You could be referred to Juvenile Intake and be assigned a social worker. GET TO CLASS!!

  15. 4. People who complain about bullies are babies. • FALSE • People who ask for help with bullies are standing up or their right not to be bullied and to have a safe school.

  16. 5. Bullying is a normal part of growing up. • FALSE • Getting teased, picked on, pushed around, threatened, harassed, insulted, hurt, and abused is not normal!

  18. 7. It’s tattling to tell an adult when you are being bullied. • FALSE • It’s smart to ask an adult for help when you are being bullied or when you see someone else being bullied. • Purpose – Keep people safe/Harmful to others
