3/28/19 Schedule and Cyberbullying Law Info

Scripps Families,

  • Reminder - Tomorrow, Friday, March 29 is a half day at Scripps.  Dismissal will be at 10:25 a.m.
  • A new state of Michigan cyberbullying law went into effect this week.

The Detroit Free Press summarized the impact in an article on Wednesday and LOCS would like to make sure parents share the potential outcomes with their children.

Staying responsible online is a topic we discuss with our students and now there are legal penalties beyond the schools.

Approved in December 2018, the cyberbullying law involves posting in a “public media forum” intended to put someone in fear of harm and an intent to commit violence, that there is an expectation that it will be viewed as a threat and is part of a pattern of harassment/intimidation.

As with all of these emerging technology issues, we appreciate families as partners keeping all of our children safe online. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has more anti-bullying resources on its site for those interested.

Have a safe and fun spring break!  Standardized testing season (PSAT and M-STEP) begins when we return.

Mr. Haas
