The district has taken steps to protect students from potential dangers by partnering with the Anonymous Tips website. Students or parents can anonymously report any dangers or issues to administrators who can help.
No Place for Hate schools receive their designation by building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive; empowering students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message; engaging schools and communities in at leas three anti-bias activities per year, which the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) helps to develop; and sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.
