Jessica Petty started this petition to Barton Graded and

My name is Jessica Petty. I live in Barton VT. I have 2 children ages 10 and 8 and we have been back in Vt now for about 3 yrs. For the past couple years being here my children have been experiencing bullying almost on a daily basis. To the point where my youngest wants me to change her school, or just does not want to even attend. I have raised my children to understand that bullying or belittling anyone is never okay and they fully understand. They've got the be the most caring little girls i know. When they have friend who they adore and love spending time with turns on them and is nothing but mean to them. Me as a parent what do i do? I've had numerous talks with my youngest calming her down. Giving her advice as to just walk away. maybe find someone else to play with for the day.My response back is that it never stops or changes either way. I understand its school. It happens everywhere. Kids will be kids. But we are now in 2019. Kids, KIDS ! are taking their own lives because off bullying. because they don't feel good enough or because they go to school and get made fun of everyday and completely destroys their confidence. With Barton Vt being such a small little town i want to get a D.A.R.E program in place in the schools of Orleans County. I want to educate every single child on the consequences or affects of bullying. I cant do this on my own though. I need the parents of the children in elementary schools in Orleans county to help me out. I would love to hear all your stories if your child is going through this. The advice and tips you use to help your child cope with. Please sign my petition to encourage Orleans County Supervisory Union to bring a D.A.R.E officer into our county's schools. These are our children. We cant just sit back and make excuses anymore or ignore it any longer and think it will just go away. I love my children. It breaks my heart to hear how hurt my children are going to school where they should feel safe. Be able to focus on their education. Please help our children.
