Dear Principal of Bristol High School: Mr. Davis

In this letter, I intend to report the bully that happened to my 16 years old daughter, Kimberly Blossom. She attends Bristol High School and currently is in the second grade. She has numerously been bullied, specifically physically and mentally being a bully victim by her classmate, whose name is Britney Kyle, 16 years old, whose behavior has created uncomfortable school circumstances for my daughter.

On September 12, 2019, my daughter, Kimberly Blossom had several injures in her body. It happened because of the physical abuse conducts by Britney Kyle, she always slapped and punch my daughter. Besides that physical thing, Britney also did intimidation such as threaten my daughter to do something for her, for example, forced Kimberly to do assignments for her, and forced her to give the exam answer. If my daughter did not do it to her, she would punch her face. The school principal has to handle that case immediately because it affects my daughter’s mental health too. Because of that tragedy, now she does not attend school anymore and does not want to socialize with anyone else, she does not even want to go out of the home.

With the facts and evidence, I listed above and enclosed for your convenience, I hope the school principal investigate it immediately and discreetly, and not put my daughter in further danger. If there is some progress regarding the investigation, please let me know as soon as possible through my phone number at 787-8989-3333. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation regarding the bullying that unfortunately, happened to my daughter.

Sincerely,

 

Lily Blossom
