In order to work, play and live as a community, all students must show respect for each other and their differences. Actions or comments based on a person’s race, creed, color, sex, weight, national origin, religion, age, economic status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, ethnic group or disability are called harassment and are not allowed in school. Examples of harassing behaviors include name-calling, inappropriate gestures, offensive remarks, physical abuse, pinching or any other behavior that is designed to bother, threaten or cause fear. If anyone discriminates against or harasses a student, the student’s teacher, a guidance staff member, the assistant principal or principal should be informed.
Bullying and/or hazing of students and staff are prohibited behaviors and will not be tolerated in the Liberty Central School District.
