A Message From Mrs. Juarros

Hello Rio Tierra Families!  
I am Mrs. Juarros, the school counselor.  I think it is safe to say that the 2020/2021 school year was a crazy and difficult year for students and parents!  It was also challenging for Rio Tierra staff at times as well.  However, we made it!  I am excited to be able to get to know your students in person this year.   Please check out the multiple counseling webpages for lots of student and parent resources.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me by calling the school and dialing extension 24085.  You can also email me at

what is bullying & how to report it

Bullying is an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that intends to cause physical, social and/or psychological harm. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power, or perceived power, over one or more persons who feel unable to stop it from happening.
What bullying is not
  • single episodes of social rejection or dislike
  • single episode acts of nastiness or spite
  • random acts of aggression or intimidation
  • mutual arguments, disagreements or fights.
These actions can cause great distress. However, they do not fit the definition of bullying and they’re not examples of bullying unless someone is deliberately and repeatedly doing them.  BUT you should still report it to me, Administration, or a teacher so we can prevent issues in the future.
Bullying can happen in person or online, via various digital platforms and devices and it can be obvious (overt) or hidden (covert). Bullying behaviour is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time (for example, through sharing of digital records).
If you believe that you or someone you know is being bullied fill out a suspected bully report form by clicking the button below.  You can fill it out online by downloading the form or print it and fill it out.  When completed, turn it in to me, Ms. Patel, Mr. Sinor, or Mrs. Powell.  If you need help filling one out you can come by my office.  REMEMBER-Reporting makes you an advocate for yourself and for other students who may be having the same experience you are.
