PVOnline is committed to providing all students and staff with a safe school environment in which all members of the school community are treated with respect. Accordingly, students have the right to be free from any form of harassment or bullying.
Bullying involves repeated acts, over time that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power. Bullying can be physical in form (e.g., pushing, hitting, kicking, spitting, stealing); verbal (e.g., making threats, taunting, teasing, name-calling); or psychological (e.g., social exclusion, spreading rumors, manipulation social relationships). Bullying is an unacceptable behavior and is subject to disciplinary action. Students should talk to a trusted adult if they are being bullied or are witnesses of another student being bullied. Students and parents are encouraged to confidentially report instances of bullying or harassment to the grade level administrator.
Hazing is any intentional, knowing, or reckless act committed by a student(s), against another student(s), which contributes to or causes a substantial risk of potential physical injury, mental harm or degradation in connection with an initiation, affiliation or maintenance of membership in any organization. Sports and clubs do not promote or condone hazing or bullying activities for initiation or any other purpose. Participating in this behavior will result in disciplinary action and possible removal from the sport or club.
When You Need Help
All students are encouraged to talk to their teachers, especially if there is a concern specific to a particular teacher’s class. All students have an assigned guidance counselor with whom they can schedule an appointment. Any student who is experiencing a problem, and has not been able to get help from another person, can see the grade level administrator.
Administrators can aide students in resolving conflicts by arranging peer mediation. Peer mediators help students talk through problems and arrive at solutions. Participation is voluntary and is considered preventative.
Reporting a Concern
To report a concern, please see any staff member on campus.
