     Marin County Office of Education NO BULLY Workshops

    Parents in our schools have asked for information on how to best guide our children and them keep them safe, including socially and emotionally, in a digital age dominated by social media.  No Bully, a nationally recognized program to prevent bullying and create a positive school climate, will be providing a series of workshops on this important topic.  The first event is on October 9, 2019, is for parents of all children of all ages and will focus on NO Bully strategies on supporting and guiding children at home.   Subsequent sessions will focus on information specific to elementary, middle and high school age students. 

    A positive and school climate and healthy and effective discussion between parents and children are essential to keeping our children happy, healthy and safe.  We ask that you please share this and encourage participation of the parents in your school communities.  Please note that the workshops are free and that simultaneous translation will be provided.
