East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School social worker Amy Weissman visited seventh- and eighth-grade classrooms during National Bully Prevention Month. The following topics were discussed: Dignity for All Students Act, different types of bullying, conflict vs. bullying, what to do if you’re being bullied, the criminal aspects of cyberbullying, bystanders vs. upstanders and social media responsibility.

Before the lesson started, students took a survey to see if their social media habits are putting them at risk or not. They were also asked to reflect on if they are using social media safely and responsibly. If the students answered no, they learned what to do to be safer online.
