Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. (

We at Lynhurst take every threat of bullying seriously. We as a student services staff will work to decrease bullying in our school through classroom presentations, Group and individual mediation, and other intervention methods.

Please visit the following websites for more information on bullying and how you can help us stop the cycle of bullying.
