How to Report Bullying

Bullying of any type has no place in a school setting. To encourage a bully-free learning environment in all LRSD schools, administrators have completed comprehensive anti-bullying training to help them better identify issues relating to bullying and to provide tools to support both the student who is bullied and the student who is doing the bullying. LRSD has enhanced monitoring and visibility plans on each campus and provided symbolic anti-bullying stickers for each campus.

LRSD offers a number of different ways to report bullying:
• Students/Parents should contact the Principal/Building Administrator, or
• Call the LRSD Bullying Tip Line: (501) 251-1636, or
• Use the Tip line feature of the LRSD ParentLink app.  You may download the app at no charge from Google Play, the Amazon App Store or iTunes.
