    Barton Hill Elementary is strongly against bullying. The website describes bullying as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a power imbalance. The behavior is repeated and affects both the bully and the child who gets bullied Bullying can be verbal like making threats, social like forcing others to leave another child out, or physical like hitting or breaking another person's things.

    Two friends who have a disagreement is not a form of bullying. We encourage them to talk about the problem and work out their differences.

    Everyday we remind our students of the three school rules:

    We also work with our staff and our families to make sure our students are safe.

    BE SAFE!!!
