Anti-Bullying Policy

“Bullying is unfair and one sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose.”

Cragmont and the Berkeley Unified School District believe every student and staff member has the right to a safe and secure school environment, free of humiliation, intimidation, fear, harassment, or any form of bullying behavior.

Cragmont takes bullying very seriously. If you are aware of any bullying, we ask you to reach out to Cragmont Staff to immediately address any incidents of bullying.

Tips for Parents and Students

To help your child recognize bullying, have him/her ask:

  • Is it fair?
  • Is it one sided?
  • Is someone using power in a hurtful way?
  • How does it feel?
  • If your child is still unsure, ask an adult.

Some young children may become anxious about remembering being bullied, so please assure your child that we will be learning how to help everyone recognize and prevent this type of behavior.  We are also emphasizing that the solution is not to be aggressive but to be assertive, and that being an ally does not mean, in turn, ganging up on the bully.  Typically, a bully has a story we have not heard or understood.
