BULLY FREE SCHOOL
Bullying is the repeated and intentional act of hurting someone else. It continues over time and involves an imbalance of power. Bullying may be physical, verbal, emotional or through the internet. Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated at Houghton Academy. If you or someone you know is being bullied, speak up and tell an adult you trust.
For the safety of students and to prevent school issues, we are encouraging parents to strictly supervise all computer/cell phone, social networking. (Examples include Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, texting). Cyber bullying can result in a suspension. All students are expected to follow the Buffalo Public School “Acceptable Use of Technology” policy while on school grounds.
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION AND SUPPORTS (PBIS)
We expect positive behavior from all of our students at Houghton Academy. Below is the matrix of behaviors expected of all students within each area of the building. Students exhibiting these positive behaviors will have the opportunity to receive PBIS tickets to use for prizes. Please encourage your child to tell you about how they are displaying these positive behaviors within Houghton Academy.
