Blue Mountain Academy Policy
No staff member or student may participate in or allow any act of harassment that degrades, injures, or disgraces any student or staff member. Harassment includes jokes, intimidation, any physical or verbal attack directed at a person’s race, religion, national origin, age, gender, or physical challenges.
Sexual harassment includes sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct that by design or innuendo is sexual in nature. Participation in sexual harassment will jeopardize a student’s stay at Blue Mountain Academy.
A student, who experiences such inappropriate conduct, whether physical or verbal, should report it to the principal, a teacher, dean, or staff member. Incidents of harassment will be treated with confidentiality as appropriate.
Statements made, even in humor that threaten harm to any person, including oneself, are not acceptable and will be dealt with accordingly.
