The district continues to recognize the month of October as National Bullying Prevention Month, with this year’s message “United We Stand Against Bullying & Drugs.” 

Throughout the month, communities unite nationwide through events, activities, outreach, and education to raise awareness of bullying prevention. The district is once again joining the movement to inspire, educate and encourage everyone to take an active role in bullying prevention. Together we can make a difference!

Students can make a commitment to support others who have been hurt or harmed, treat others with kindness, be more accepting of people’s differences, and help include those who are left out by taking the “Together Against Bullying” online pledge. Those interested in taking the pledge can visit

In addition, the East Rockaway community can show their support by wearing orange for Unity Day on Oct. 24th. By wearing orange, schools and communities unite against bullying, and unite for kindness, acceptance and inclusion, while demonstrating support and hope.
