Any child can be bullied. This problem is real and urgent; which is why we have devoted our entire Bloomfield SEPAC Meeting on Nov. 8, to the topic of ANTI-BULLYING. Learn Bloomfield Schools Policies and Protocols about the steps to prevent bullying, what steps to take if your child is being bullied and most importantly learn the warning signs that may alert you that your child has been or is being bullied and then, learn how to help deal with it.
Don’t miss this important meeting, on Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017, at Bloomfield High School from 6-8. PM.
