                           Do something about it

    Dear Parents:

    In an effort to encourage students that may be experiencing bullying, harassment or intimidation and

    are too fearful or not quite ready to come forward facetoface to report the matter, Harney County

    School District #3 is implementing the CyberBully HotlineTM program from SchoolReach®.

    Our desire and efforts are, first and foremost, focused on encouraging students to report such issues

    directly to a teacher, counselor, coach, or school administrator. However, in some cases, a student can

    be overcome with fear and worry about who to talk to, what to say. They may also fear retaliation, or

    losing the respect of their peers by being labeled a “tattle” or “narc.”

    Students with such fears need a reporting path and the CyberBully Hotline is designed to be just that.

    Here are a few highlevel details:

    How it Works

    Harney County School District #3 has published the following hotline number(s):

    o Burns Alternative School ‘s CyberBully number is 5416002011

    o Burns High School’s CyberBully number is 5416002011

    o Hines Middle School’s CyberBully number is 5416002010

    o Henry L. Slater Elementary’s CyberBully number is 5416002014

    Students or parents can send a text message to these numbers, or call and leave a voice

    message

    The Caller ID is masked, ensuring the report is completely anonymous

    The messages are forwarded to one or more school officials who have been designated to

    monitor reports

    These officials have the ability to reply to text messages & start a twoway, anonymous chat

    The goal is to engage the student and begin a dialog towards a resolution process

    Our goal is to ensure that each student feels comfortable coming forward, either facetoface or

    anonymously. Encourage your student to use all the avenues that are offered by Harney County School

    District #3 to help resolve any issues that they may face. We are here to help, but we can’t help if we

    don’t know.

    As a parent, you are also welcome to report issues. Anything that you think we should know to ensure

    the health and safety of our students should be reported.

    If you have any questions or require further information, please contact the school office, visit the

    CyberBully Hotline section of on the school website or visit www.cyberbullyhotline.com to learn more.

    Regards,

    Dr. Marilyn D. McBride
