About Bullying and Harassment

About Bullying and Harassment

Every student deserves to attend school every day in an atmosphere of respect and safety.  Great Oaks teachers and staff work hard to create a positive and welcoming environment.

We want you to enjoy your time at Great Oaks, and to leave with good memories that will prepare you well for the future.

One way to maintain a positive environment is to protect those who might be victimized.

Any activity that may cause mental or physical harm affects the school, and so such activities are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.  These activities may include harassment, intimidation, bullying, and dating violence (emotional, physical, or sexual cruelty, including through isolation, threats, and intimidation).

If this happens to you or to someone you know, tell a Great Oaks instructor or administrator as soon as possible.  Great Oaks staff members are here to protect you from further harm as well as retaliation.

If possible, the instructor will work to end the situation directly.  If that is not possible, or if it involves other possible victims, the administrator will record the facts and begin an investigation.
