21 Days of Kindness
October is not only Anti-Bullying Month at Onalaska, but also the month of KindnessOnalaska elementary is taking a positive, proactive approach to ending bullying. By October 5, the students and staff had submitted over 1,000 kindness strips! The chain of kindness stretches half-way around the gym. Students, teachers, administrative staff, and para-educators are all involved. This not only warms up the school but parents are stopping in to tell us about how their children are being kind at home and while they are out running errands. 

Elementary Psychologist, Starla Butler, is spearheading this project.

no bully
October is National Bullying Prevention Month
Onalaska School District is committed to ensuring that all students feel safe at school and that they are not the targets of bullying, harassment or intimidation by their peers. Unfortunately, we know that bullying takes place in our schools. We continue to educate students and parents/guardians about what bullying looks like and the myriad of forms that bullying can be manifested.

We encourage all students to report bullying to their teachers, the counselor or their building administrator. We investigate each time there is a report of bullying and respond accordingly. Every staff member goes through a yearly training on bullying, harassment and intimidation. Our staff takes these incidents very seriously and will continue to do so.

If you suspect that bullying is occurring, there is a reporting mechanism on our website called the HIB (harassment, intimidation and bullying) form. This is available to students and parents/guardians where there is a suspicion that bullying is taking place.

School Bus Safety Week is October 16-20. We are grateful for the outstanding bus drivers and transportation department in Onalaska. Our drivers log thousands of miles, transporting our kids to and from school safely. They also take all of our student/athletes to and from games and events.

The next time you see a bus driver, thank them for their tireless efforts in keeping our kids and staff safe. We love our drivers!
