In the wake of Day of Silence, a few students have mentioned instances during Breaking the Silence week where they were called things like "fag" "faggot" or "queer", and in some cases even had things thrown at them.

The Student Handbook recognizes that these things are not normal and are in fact abusive, and can be classified as category I, II, and III offenses.

If you were made fun of, pestered or think you may have been abused during your time being silent, or, if you witnessed any of these occurences, please do not hesitate to fill out a harassment report in the main office before or after school.

As of now, I'm planning to write out a letter from the concerned school body to the administration regarding the inaction of faculty to stop these incidents when they happened, and subsequent failure to report them. I'm asking for your support and encouragement for abused classmates to remember that they do not have to be silent, but can in fact report this and demand that charges be placed against their abusers.
