Hillside’s Bullying Prevention Program
“Stop, Walk, Talk”Loudoun County Public Schools are implementing a county wide positive behavior intervention support bullying prevention program to teach our students how to identify bullying behavior and appropriate ways to handle bullying. Hillside Elementary will be implementing this program in grades K-5 lessons and activities.
Every LCPS student in grades K-5 will be taught what bullying is and how to respond to bullying behavior. Our three step program is called, “Stop. Walk, Talk.” Students will be taught that if they experience or observe bullying behavior they should tell the perpetrator to “stop”. Sometimes, even when students tell others to “stop”, the problem behavior continues. When this happens, students are to “walk” away from the problem behavior. Even when students use “stop” and they “walk” away from the problem, sometimes students will continue to behave inappropriately toward them. When that happens, students should “talk” to an adult they trust.Please feel free to contact our school counselors, Mrs. Darnell for grades K (Bahn, Dailey, and Griffin), 1, 2, and 5 or Mrs. Peterson for grades K (Breitzmann and Corigliano), 3, and 4 for any information or concerns at (571) 252-2170.
