What is bullying?

Bullying may involve, but is not limited to, any of the following actions that create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment:
- Repeated teasing or name calling
- Sexual, religious, or racial harassment
- Public humiliation

*Cyberbullying is willful harassment and/or intimidation of a person through the use of digital technologies.
Reporting an incident
Parents, students, and visitors are strongly encouraged to report suspected incidents. The school office has standard forms available to all students and parents to report incidents of bullying. The form is also available on our website.
In all reports of bullying, an appropriate investigation will be conducted based on the information received in the report.
