Anti-Bullying Expectations

Expectation 1:  We will not bully others. 
Expectation 2:  We will help students who are bullied.
Expectation 3:  We will include students who are left out. 
Expectation 4:  If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home. 

Our schools began using the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program beginning October 14, 2011. This research based program reduces bullying in schools and helps schools to create a safe and more positive place where students can learn.

School Safety – Our Unquestioned Highest Priority

Since 1998, the safety and well-being of our children and staff has been the unquestioned highest priority of our district. That year, we used Safe Schools America, a nationally recognized safety firm, to audit our security measures and help our schools and district develop detailed emergency plans. Since that year, our safety plans have been updated annually and made available for review and suggestions by our parents and community.


Internet Safety
Check out these resources for information on keeping students safe on the Internet.

As a Title One School, Pacolet Elementary encourages parent involvement.

 Please review our Home School Compact , our Title I Parent Involvement Policy and our Title I Newsletter .

If you have any questions or concerns about Title I and/or Title I funding, please contact Mr. Kenny Blackwood by phone at 279-6500 or via email at kblackwood@spartanburg3.org
