"The Northern Local School District places first priority on the safety and well being of our students. It is only in a safe and nurturing environment that a student can truly reach their greatest potential. Therefore, we take a proactive approach to any form of bullying and harassment that may occur between our students. If you or your child feel that a bullying or harassment behavior is occurring, please contact your child's teacher or building principal immediately. We cannot assist with issues that we are unaware of and that often can only make the child feel more helpless. We appreciate your help in creating the safest environment for all of our students to thrive and grow."
