Bullying is any hurtful or aggressive act toward a person or group of people in person or through technology. Bullying behaviors include, but are not limited to insults, threats, name-calling, put-downs, spreading rumors, making fun of people, hitting and kicking. Any member of the school community should report bullying without fear of retaliation for reporting. Students who bully can expect consequences.
Students Speak Up is a district site designed to provide students, families and faculty with information and resources in order to uphold district policies on harassment and discrimination.
Our goal is that every student knows at least one adult at Moore who they can ask for help if something isn’t going well or they need support. We know some things are hard to talk about, so we created a Student Concern Form to make sure everyone has a way to communicate that they need support. This form is linked on our school website.
The Board has adopted a policy prohibiting bullying/harassment of students as well as a complaint procedure.
