Complaint Letter from a Parent Addressed to the School regarding the Harrassment and Bullying of a Student

A complaint letter from a concerned parent regarding the harrassment and bullying of her son in class. The letter is addressed to the Principal with a call for immediate action.

Dear Principal Victoria,

My son Alex Reynolds is a third grade student under Mrs. David's class. I would like to call your attention on these two students from his class: Jon Meyer and Adam Zandler. They have been bullying my son up to no end. 

Recently, these boys have brought an air rifle to school to show off to their peers and during recess, the said air rifle was lost and the blame is being place on my son. They are accusing Alex of theft. This is not true. My son is a well-mannered boy, we have made it a point to raise him with good values and respect for other's rights and property. My son has told me of his predicament in school over the weekend, all the bullying and the harassment he has gone through. He is very uncomfortable of bringing this up to his teacher as he is afraid of being branded a snitch by his peers. However, I see that my son can no longer endure such treatment and he is willing to talk about the situation with these boys at your office.

Moreover, I am shocked that an item such an air rifle has gone unnoticed in the school premises. It maybe considered a toy, but it is not a child's plaything, an air rifle is meant to be used under the supervision of adults. Also the presence of such a weapon may cause harm to other children.

If possible, I would like to request for a meeting with you and his teacher, even perhaps the boys' parents to address the issue. I am kindly asking your office for help with this matter.

Thank you very much

Mrs. Bea Ness
