Bullying and Harrasment

Suicide Awareness

Greetings HMTCA Middle School Parents/Guardians,

On Wednesday, October 4th all middle school students attended an Assembly that addressed the following topics: Bullying, Harassment and Suicide Awareness/Prevention. Our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were introduced to ourschool support staff including Social Workers, Mrs. Alisha Simpson-Watt, and Mr. Carlos Marrero. The primary message was for students to reach out to an adult if they are experiencing difficulties or if they hear concerning statements from peers or observe unsafe behaviors.

At HMTCA we want to support our students and want them to feel comfortable reaching out to caring adults at school and home. Our new Restorative Center, led by Dr. Daphne Falconer and Mr. Stockton Farmer, allows students to process negative behaviors and restore the harm. We also encourage students to come to the Restorative Center to help resolve conflicts. Unfortunately, on Friday afternoon at dismissal, we had a physical altercation in our courtyard. This altercation was between two middle school students and it caused a major disruption. I am disappointed that our students did not report this conflict to adults earlier in the day and they did not reach out for help to mediate the conflict. Sadly, a few students helped to incite this conflict and a few students took video footage of this disturbing altercation. These behaviors are unacceptable and do not promote a positive school culture. Thankfully the two students involved did not sustain injuries, but it was unsettling to many students.

Please review the following expectations with your child:

➢ If your son/daughter observes students arguing or discussing a possible verbal or physical confrontation they are encouraged to report it to an adult immediately.
➢ Students should not stop and watch a verbal or physical altercation. They must find an adult immediately to intervene.
➢ Students should discourage their peers from fighting and encourage peaceful resolutions.
➢ Students should not record and/or post these types of negative behaviors. It is damaging to the students involved and never goes away on the internet.

Please review the attached PowerPoint Presentations that were presented to students on Wednesday, October 4th. Feel free to contact HMTCA at 860-695-7201 if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support,
Mrs. Biggs
HMTCA Principal
