Student Safety and Bullying

The Board of Trustees desires to provide a safe school environment that allows all students equal access and opportunities in the district’s academic and other educational support programs, services, and activities.  The Board prohibits, at any District school or school activity, unlawful discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any student based on the student’s actual or perceived race, color, ancestry, national origin, nationality, ethnicity, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.
Newhart Middle School uses  “Say Something” in an effort to keep schools safe.  Say Something is a youth violence prevention program created by the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.   The program provides students a confidential method to report problems directly to the School Resource Deputy and to school administrators. 
Say Something will allow students to use their cell phone or other device to text and report issues such as bullying, depression, fights, drugs, weapons, and any threats relating to campus safety.  Via a confidential message, students can detail a problem without the fear of being labeled a “snitch,” “rat,” or “tattletale” by their peers.  Posters will be placed around the campus so students will be aware of the program and the phone number for sending their texts. 
Using one's phone or other device is a comfortable way for the youth of today to communicate, and we feel this program will keep the lines of communication open between the students and the school administrators.
Say Something Campaign


If you or someone you know have been the victim of bullying or harassment there are many ways to report it. 
  • Use the Say Something App.
  • Put a submission in the Bully Box in the library. 
  • Report it directly to the front office.
 All reports will be kept anonymous to the best of our ability but may require the administration to follow up with the victim/or witnesses to clarify pertinent information.
