I acknowledge and agree to Montalvo’s Anti-Bullying Policy which is as follows. The physical and emotional safety of students and staff are central to Montalvo’s camps and vital to its overall mission. As such, we take the issues of bullying, harassment, and violence very seriously. Bullying is generally defined as when one or more people maliciously exclude, tease, taunt, gossip, hit, kick, or put down another. Montalvo’s leadership investigates any and all allegations of bullying, and trains camp supervisors to promote positive communication, so that students can feel comfortable voicing their concerns to staff.
Behaviors that may warrant suspension or dismissal in Montalvo’s sole discretion include, but are not limited to:
• Fighting or harming a teacher, volunteer, staff member or student
• Threatening to harm or using threatening language
• Swearing at a teacher or student
• Destroying camp property
• Bullying other students
• Actions which disrupt or interfere with the teacher’s ability to teach camp or engage with other students
