HEPHZIBAH, Ga. — It’s the start of school year and parents are dealing with all kinds of issues that affect their kids, including one that’s been around for years: bullying. One Hephzibah parent says it has already happened to her daughter, and the school system says they’re not going to tolerate it.

Some school systems across the state don’t have written policies on bullying, but that’s not the case in Richmond County. The policy there is clearly spelled out.

“We take the safety of each student at Hephzibah Middle School very seriously,” said Principal Wade White. “As soon as the investigation is complete, Hephzibah Middle School will take appropriate action based on the Richmond County School Code of Conduct.”

Tina Williams says she is hoping that the school year will get better for her daughter Taylor. Full story.
