Lincoln principal tells students not to tattle on bullies; then apologizes

Posted: Updated:

 

  LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A Lincoln principal has apologized for a flier sent home with students that advised them not to tattle on their tormentors.
 
  The Lincoln Journal Star says (http://bit.ly/1j6Abov ) some parents of the fifth-graders at Zeman Elementary complained and posted angry comments on Facebook.
 
  On Wednesday Zeman principal Donna Williams sent an electronic message of apology to the families, and the district posted the message on the district Facebook page.
 
  Among other things, the flier says telling on the bully makes the bully want to retaliate. And the flier asks, ``Would we keep our friends if we tattled on them?''
 
  District student services director Russ Uhing says the LPS philosophy is: Ask the bully to stop. Walk away. If the bullying continues, tell a parent or teacher.
