Report Incidents of Bullying / Harassment
Bullying is a form of harassment which is unacceptable behavior.

Students and parents can report incidences of bullying by completing the Bullying/Harassment Report Form located online at www.district158.org/bullying-information/. The online form will be automatically sent to the school principal who will research your report and respond as necessary.

Lawn Care & Pest Control Product Applications

District 158 will offer email notifications to interested parties prior to all applications and in the event of a cancellation of a scheduled application. If you would like to receive notice of product applications, please send an email to darmstrong@district158.org to be added to the list. Please include Product Applications in the subject line.
