Grand Junction, CO – School District 51 would like to invite parents and guardians to watch a new D51 anti-bullying PSA with their children and discuss the themes of the video, including:

  • The difference between mean behavior, peer conflict, and bullying
  • How to report bullying and what happens when bullying is reported
  • What you can do to help a student who is being bullied
  • The consequences of bullying 

The video features student volunteers from Grand Junction High School, as well as two narrators from D51 administration, and was filmed in February at GJHS. You can find the video on our Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as the district’s home page at www.d51schools.org. Watch the three-minute video now by clicking here. 

Bullying is a major community issue that impacts on in five U.S. children, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. District 51 is working to decrease that number by standardizing bullying investigation and documentation protocols across all schools and urging students to report bullying – whether it happens to them or other students – in the way they feel most comfortable. That can mean telling a trusted adult in person or reporting to Safe2Tell by calling 1-877-542-7233, visiting safe2tell.org, or texting through the free Safe2Tell app. 

The district hopes the video clears up the definition of bullying and helps more students feel comfortable reporting bullying to the proper authorities. Schools cannot address bullying if they don’t know about it. 

More information is available on District 51’s bullying prevention page.
