Spotswood Public Schools
HIB (Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying)
Awareness and Prevention Program

Dear Memorial Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members,

In compliance with the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights, the Spotswood Public Schools have put a strong set of resources in place to protect our students and foster a positive environment in which they can learn. Our district policies related to Harrassment, Intimidation, and Bullying are in full compliance with the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Law. At each of our four buildings a School Safety Team has been established to monitor and address any incidents of HIB among our students and to work collaboratively with students and staff to create great schools in which students feel safe and respected. Each building houses an Anti-Bullying Specialist whose job it is to investigate cases and, along with the building principal, to provide an action plan for following through any confirmed cases of bullying or harassment.

At Memorial School, your Anti-Bullying Specialist is Ms. Jessica Silva. Ms. Silva works cooperatively with Mr. Kitchin and a team of committed teachers and staff to create a safe, productive environment for our middle school students here in Spotswood. If you have a concern regarding a bullying issue, please contact:
