Every child has the right to feel safe, valued and comfortable in school. No one else’s behavior should ever make children feel afraid or embarrassed because of their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any disability they may have. Parents are urged to reinforce with their child(ren) that if he/she is harassed or sees harassment happening to someone else that he/she should report the behavior to a teacher or the principal.
A student who believes he/she has been harassed is encouraged to report the incident to the principal, teacher or guidance counselor. The allegations will be investigated and addressed and appropriate disciplinary action taken, where necessary.
