Bullying Prevention

Hayward Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment that protects students from physical and emotional harm.  Bullying has harmful effects on student well-being, student learning and school attendance.

No individual or group shall, through physical, written, verbal, visual, or other means, harass, sexually harass, threaten, intimidate, cyberbully, cause bodily injury to, or commit hate violence against any student or school personnel, or retaliate against them for filing a complaint or participating in the complaint resolution process.

All students, staff and adults in the lives of students have a role to play to ensure a safe, respectful and supportive environment for our youth to thrive in.  

Together we can:

  • Develop positive relationships
  • Teach and learn about each other, our cultures, our experiences and our shared values
  • Examine our personal biases and counter negative stereotypes
  • Identify unsafe or disrespectful words and behaviors and take action to learn better and correct them
  • Celebrate our diversity
  • Be allies and support one another

If you or someone you know is experiencing bullying or harassment, there are several different ways to get help:

  1. You can talk with a trusted adult (parent, teacher, campus safety officer, counselor, etc.) right away
  2. You can make an Anonymous Report
  3. You can submit a Bullying Complaint form

Everyone deserves to feel safe and to participate in school without fear.  If something is getting in the way of this, tell someone.  If it doesn't work the first time, tell someone else.  Don't stop until you get the help you need and deserve. 

If you or someone you know is feeling like there is no hope, or thinking about hurting themselves or suicide, GET HELP NOW.
