2. Keep a diary or journal of what is happening
3. Stick with a group/avoid being alone
4. Avoid areas where the bully is likely to be

You may call the office at any time to report bullying. Mr. Williamson, Assistant Principal, Mr. Maze, Dean of Students, Mrs. Ashmore, Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Farley, Guidance Counselor, and I are more than willing to take your call.
