Bullying Concerns:Burke County Public Schools take all allegations of bullying seriously when reported to any staff or administration at the school. Upon receipt of the complaint, the principal or designee will investigate the merits of the complaint. The parent and student will be notified within 24 hours regarding the findings. Please let administration know if you have any concerns regarding bullying at the school.

From the ASCA website:
