Bullying & Harassment
Riverdale School District is committed to providing safe and supportive environments in which our students can learn and grow. As a community of educators we are therefore committed to educating our students about appropriate behavior. We are further committed to identifying instances of bullying and/or harrassment in our schools and addressing those instances.
We know that bullying and harassment will sometimes occur in schools. We understand that children, from the youngest elementary students to high school young adults, will experiment with various social behaviors, even negative ones. We know that good kids will make poor decisions at times. And we know that children who find themselves the targets and victims of bullying need our support and need to know that the adults in their lives will do everything they can to put an end to this behavior.
The Riverdale School District has specific policies prohibiting bullying and harassment within our school community.
