LHS is investigating bullying allegations

Administrators are currently looking into bullying allegations among athletes at Liberty High School.

The district places the highest priority on student safety and, to that end, would like to make sure alleged incidents such as these never happen again. School administrators will be tightening its supervision of after-school sports in the locker rooms and will be addressing the issue with all of its athletic teams.

The district’s athletic handbook states that we demand an atmosphere that is free from all forms of harassment and/or violence.

In accordance with the Dignity for all Students Act, or DASA, the district condemns and strictly prohibits all forms of discrimination and harassment including bullying, taunting or intimidation, against students by students and/or employees on school property, which includes school buses, school sponsored events such as extracurricular events or activities and, in certain circumstances, off-school-property.

If you or your child has any information pertinent to this matter, please contact the district’s DASA Coordinator, Patrick Sullivan, at (845) 292-5400 ext. 5112 or psullivan@libertyk12.org. Students with first-hand information may also anonymously submit it to a school administrator through Anonymous Alerts.
