Anti-Bullying Mission

St. John the Apostle School has formulated this policy with the following purposes:

  1. Promoting strong Christian development in all of our students and encouraging them to treat each other as images of God
  2. Building positive student relationships in order to provide an environment that is physically safe and emotionally secure for all students
  3. Raising awareness in the school and homes that bullying is an unacceptable behavior at St. John the Apostle School
  4. Establishing procedures that are consistent throughout the school for handling bullying behaviors that happen at school

Statement Prohibiting Bullying

We recognize that bullying and intimidation have a negative effect on the social, emotional, spiritual and academic development of our students. Every student has the right to an education and to be safe in and around their school. It is the policy of St. John the Apostle School that any form of bullying behavior, whether in the classroom, on school property or at school sponsored events, is unacceptable. Students who are determined to have engaged in such behavior are subject to disciplinary action. Depending on the intensity, frequency, and duration of any offenses, a violation of this policy will result in serious consequences, including, but not limited to, formal dismissal from St. John the Apostle.
