Saucon Valley School District superintendent Dr. Craig Butler announced in an email to middle and elementary school parents Friday that the district will host a Community Outreach Meeting about its Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support Program on Monday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. in the middle school.

The email indicated that the program has been implemented in both schools, and that “presenters from both buildings will be present.”

“A question/answer session will follow the the presentation,” Butler wrote. “All are welcome.”

He added that the meeting, which will be held at the middle school, will last about an hour.

Saucon Valley schools have been the subject of complaints by parents about pervasive bullying in recent months, following one parent’s remarks to the school board about incidents involving his daughter and an alleged bully.

Two 10-year-old boys from Hellertown were charged last month in connection with alleged bullying and Saucon Valley, and the ongoing discussions about the behavior sparked the creation of a Saucon Valley anti-bullying Facebook group which currently has more than 200 members.

Butler has said he will work to address any issues involving bullying in the schools.
