The ugly specter of bullying is being addressed at MFISD in a big way, along with other aspects of safety, according to MF Elementary Principal Bruce Peckover and Ass't Superintendent Allen Roberts.


Bruce described a very comprehensive program on how MFISD is addressing the problem of student bullying. They have implemented a comprehensive student-led Bully prevention program from elementary through high school campuses. The program is based on the No Place for Hate® model and has proven to be quite successful.  

Allen spoke about the more general safety program as the coordinator of the Safe and Drug-Free school environment. In addition to periodic self-audits of physical and procedural safety, the school recently participated in a Safety Summit conducted jointly with area emergency medical, police and other first responders. 

Thanks, Bruce and Allen.
