October is National Bully Prevention Month. Unfortunately, students don't always tell adults that they've been bullied and therefore parents don't know that anything is wrong. Because it can have such a severe impact on a child's mental health, it's important to recognize the warning signs so that actions can be taken if necessary.
Some warning signs might include:
• Frequent complaints of not feeling well (headache or stomach ache)
• Changes in eating habits (children may skip lunch at school)
• Difficulty sleeping
• Dropping grades and/or interest in schoolwork
• Avoiding social situations
• Self harm, talk of running away
• Lost or destroyed items
• Unexplained injuries
Sumner has created the Sumner Safe Zone displayed on this page in efforts to support our zero tolerance policy. To learn more about tips and strategies, please visit the website www.stopbullying.gov.

New Recycling Program
Students: Thanks to Student Council providing the funds, recycling has returned to Sumner! Please look for the container in each classroom and put into it only recyclable materials. Trash like glass bottles, tissues, and styrofoam goes into the trash can. Please help us reduce what we send to the landfill by refilling water bottles, reusing paper, and generally reducing our consumption of one-use products like plastic forks and spoons. if you are interested in helping to empty classroom bins, contact senior Amanda Cano-Lozano.

1. Keep Your Online Identity Secret
Don’t tell anyone your real name and address or what neighborhood you live in. Here’s the general rule: Don’t give out any information that a predator could possibly use to find you. The Federal Trade Commission says that even “small clues” like what school you attend or the name of your athletic team is enough for a predator to figure out your identity.
2. Your Username and Password Belong to You … And Only You
Don’t give your username or password to anyone. It's just that simple. What if a friend logs on and pretends to be you, and then says something really awful and gets you in trouble? Sure, it might seem funny to the “former” friend, but it’s serious and it happens every day. With your username and password, someone can post language that gets you expelled from school, in trouble with your parents, or even in trouble with the law. Keep your name and password private.
3. Other Tips
Only accept friend requests from people you KNOW.
Make sure your privacy settings on Facebook are set to private.
If you post photos, make sure that they are only visible to your friends and are not public (you can change this in settings).
If you get any unwelcome or suspicious messages on Facebook, report the messages to Facebook and block the person from contacting you.
