Recent events make it important for me to reinforce East Los High’s Policy on bullying.
I’ve seen how serious the consequences of bullying can be. It can ruin students’ experience of school, prevent them from succeeding academically, and sometimes even cost lives.
I care deeply about the students at ELH and I don’t want to see this happen here. Every student deserves to feel they can go through an ordinary day without being tormented.
The world outside may be crazy, but inside the walls of East Los High I insist that we create an atmosphere that is safe and respectful for everyone.
