A Snow Day brought about by wacky weather in Simcoe County on Thursday, and it appears some educators put that free time to good use.
The Snow Day came during No Name Calling Week, a social media campaign to promote the end of cyberbullying. Some teachers and other educators used the day to open the digital floor to discuss the issue.
Barrie Police were on social media yesterday too, reminding everyone there is an online resource available, through which students can anonymously report a bully.
In an ongoing effort to promote safety and security for our youth within our community, #BPS has a confidential bully reporting system on our website. An excellent collaboration with @SCDSB_Schools & @SMCDSB ! https://t.co/QlCIQH95Rz #ReportABully pic.twitter.com/8O9vxhT9bo— Barrie Police (@BarriePolice) January 24, 2019
