Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying

  • The New Milford Public Schools is committed to the physical and emotional safety of our students. We believe that every student has the right to thrive in a learning community where he or she feels safe from threats of harassment, intimidation and bullying. To this end, the New Milford School District prohibits any acts motivated by harassment, intimidation or bullying (HIB) based on real or perceived characteristics as defined by the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights.  We expect all members of our school community to abide by our district's HIB Policy and encourage each to report incidences of harassment, intimidation or bullying by completing an HIB Incident Form.
