BOE Letter re: FUSE, Jan. 4, 2021
The New Rochelle Board of Education updated the community on contract talks with FUSE in a letter on January 4, 2021.
Isaac E. Young Middle School is committed to creating an environment where children of all backgrounds are able to come to school and learn in a safe and supportive environment. We know middle school years are full of challenges and new experiences. However, bullying should not be part of that experience. Bullying, harassment, and intimidation is intentional conduct, including verbal, physical, or written conduct, or an intentional electronic communication, that creates a hostile educational environment.
We are dedicated to teaching our students about the harmful effects bullying can have on others as well as teaching students to take a stand and speak out. All of our staff members (teachers, security, teaching assistants, guidance counselors, etc) have been trained to intervene. We have a school-wide reporting system where children are able to report acts of bullying anonymously. In addition, our support team is constantly looking for ways to strengthen our learning community.
Please join us. You can help by speaking to your children and encourage them to report acts of violence and bullying behavior. Please visit our links or contact our school if you need more information.
If your child or someone you know is a victim of bullying, please contact the school immediately. Together, we can make a difference.
