Bullying and Cyberbullying  

As students start back-to-school, our school communities are invited to use SchoolSafety.gov's resources and tools on Bullying and Cyberbullying to create safe and supportive learning environments for students.

Bullying and cyberbullying threaten students’ physical and emotional safety and can impact their social and academic success at school. There are several reasons behind school violence; in some cases, being the victim of bullying could play a contributing role.

Pictures of the kids with the flu

Each year, to comply with New York State Public Health Law (PHL) § 613, licensed and registered daycare programs, nursery schools, pre-K, kindergarten, school-age childcare programs, and public and non-public schools are required to post information about influenza (flu) and the benefits of flu vaccination at the start of flu season in early fall. Flu vaccination is more important than ever because the flu, RSV, and the virus that causes COVID-19 may all be spreading. Flu vaccination will help reduce the spread of flu, ease the burden on our health care system, and reduce the number of illnesses that interrupt education and lead to absences. Influenza (flu), spreads easily and can make people very sick, especially kids. 


You can help stop flu!

Sullivan 180 has produced a Community Resource Guide for you to use and share. 

This guide is their response to the number one barrier to achieving better health identified by Sullivan County residents: knowledge of existing resources. 

It can be complex and overwhelming to identify and locate services that will help in your hour of need, particularly if you are new to the area, or in crisis.  After several years of information gathering, Sullivan 180 worked with community partners and the Sullivan County Democrat to print the resource guide in an effort to get it into the hands of as many community residents as possible.
