I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and you are ready for a great new year! At SPPS, we take bullying very seriously and I am happy to say that our students are very good about reporting problems they see. However, to be sure we encourage reporting ongoing bullying issues, we will be using a new online reporting system called Sprigeo. Students will be able to report incidents online from their phone, computer, tablet, etc. This system includes a parent education module that I think would be very helpful in determining the difference between bad behavior and bullying behavior. Please take some time to review the module and talk with your children about the system and how it should be used appropriately. A link to the reporting side of the system will be posted on the SPPS website and the parent information can be viewed here: http://parents.sprigeo.com/
We are so lucky to have your children at SPPS and appreciate the support from the families to keep everyone safe and sound while on campus. Thanks for being our partners.
