Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions by parents of Mulcahy Middle School students. For more details, please refer to our Student Handbook located in the Quick Links sidebar on the Home page. We encourage you to read and review the Student Handbook with your child often. For further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us

If my child is being bullied at school, what is the best way to deal with the problem?

We strongly encourage you and/or your child to immediately report any instances of bullying. The number one reason why children do not report bullying or abuse is fear of retaliation from their peers. The Sprigeo reporting form can be accessed from the privacy of a home computer or other Internet-equipped device, eliminating the possibility of being identified by another student. To report bullying or abuse, fill out the form on the Sprigeo website. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call us at 559-685-7250.
