An Overview for Parents of the
Against Bullying and Harassment
Bullying means systematically and chronically, inflicting physical hurt or psychological distress on one or more students or school employees. It is further defined as a pattern of unwanted and repeated written, verbal, or physical behavior, including any threatening, insulting, dehumanizing gesture by an adult or student, that is severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment; cause discomfort or humiliations; or unreasonably interfere with the individual’s school performance or participation that includes a noted power differential.
Harassment is a one time
occurrence of bullying.
Peaceful Problem Solving
Frequent conflicts, discord, or open arguments between parents will create insecure relationships for the children and can lead to an aggressive reaction pattern.
Safety is everyone’s
