GRMS Online Student Survey
Glen Rock Middle School has been participating in the OurSCHOOL online student survey in order to hear directly and anonymously from students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades and all of the teachers. We ask their views on things that matter to them such as student engagement, student wellness, and the school’s learning climate in order to help us in the planning process. Now we would like to hear from the parent(s)/guardian(s) of all of our students to help us understand the views of the parent(s)/guardian(s) and provide us with information on how we can work together to provide the best possible educational experience for your child(ren). As such, we are requesting that you complete an online survey for the parent(s)/guardian(s) during the week of February 29, 2016. The survey will be closed at the end of the school day on March 4, 2016. Please see the following letter for information on how to take the survey.

Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying
There is relatively new legislation regarding Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB). Our district has always taken student misconduct seriously, in all forms, and will continue to do so. We support the goals of the law and will fully implement its requirements. The legislation requires reporting of suspected HIB, investigation and determination of whether the behavior is HIB or not. It defines specific reporting and follow-up activities. Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any gesture, written, verbal or physical act, or technological threat whether it be a single incident or a series of incidents that takes place on school property, at any school sponsored function, going to and/or from school, or off school grounds that substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other pupils. The district policy and contact information for the Anti-Bullying Coordinator is available on the district website.
