After more than 11,000 signatures, Grayson's parents met with leaders from his school district to determine how to address bullying, and how to get Grayson back in school. Grayson will be allowed to bring his backpack to school, too. As Grayson's parents wrote, "The outpouring of love from everyone has been unbelievable and has given us the opportunity to shine a light on the different kinds of hurts kids experience at school."

Parents in the community are now helping to organize a Parent Advisory Council on Bullying, which Grayson's family plans to partner with to make sure that every child feels safe and comfortable at school.

We need your help. Students are bullied every day in this state. Children are mistreated and are bullied for unjustifiable reasons. This young boy has been bullied for having a Rainbow Dash backpack. Rather than stop the bullying, they've made it so he can't bring it back, and allowed the bullies to get off scot-free. We can't let this happen.

Tony Baldwin, School Superintendent
Allow Grayson to bring his backpack to school, and crack down on the bullying.

      Good parents teach their child/ren not to bully, to treat others like they would like to be treated. Sure, telling Grayson he isn't allowed to take his MLP will stop the bullying over the backpack but it also sends a message to the bully's that if they don't like something all they have to do is start the bullying.. What about the kids who get bullied because of a mental or behavior disorder, it's not like you can take those away from a child to stop the bullying? Crack down on the bullies, not the ones being bullied.. We are supposed to be teaching kids it is NOT ok to be a bully.
