Digital Citizenship Message January 2019

Cyberbullying is bullying or harassment that happens online. It can happen in an email, a text message, a game, or on a social networking site. It might involve spreading rumors or images posted on someone's profile or passed around for others to see, or creating a group or page to make a person feel left out.

What do you do if you are being cyberbullied?

Don’t respond! Bullies usually are looking for a reaction. Ignore the bully, save the evidence, such as texts, emails, facebook conversations, etc. and share it with an adult.
