POLICY AND PROCEDURES ON BULLYING

Notre Dame Academy reverences and respects all students and strives to provide our students with a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying. This policy addresses any incident which may occur on school property, on a school bus, or at a school function, as well as harassment that occurs off of school property which creates a risk or a perceived risk for harm or bullying on school property or “cyberbullying” that results in continued bullying or harassment in the school. The Catholic Elementary Schools in the Diocese of Buffalo call on Jesus as the model for our thoughts, words, and actions. Our schools have a tradition of excellence in developing youth who are sensitive to others and live in the tenets of our Catholic faith. Children learn the best in a climate of acceptance, tolerance, and respect where bullying and harassment are not tolerated. Therefore, our schools strive to create and maintain a safe environment and an atmosphere absent of threat in interactions with peers or adults.
