The Mt. Jordan team is working to support 6th graders in developing positive communication skills. We have recognized the need to reteach some school procedures and introduce some new peer communication skills. Mt. Jordan has a no tolerance policy for bullying. We teach students a “Stop, Walk, Talk” process to follow when confronted with inappropriate behavior. We will be reviewing this policy with your student before winter break and ask that you encourage your student to practice different ways of communicating “Stop” when a peer is saying or doing something that offends or makes them feel uncomfortable.
If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your student’s counselor.
