Anti-Bullying Information

The Piscataway Township School District prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, and bullying.  A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. 

Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its students in a safe and disciplined environment.  


We are committed to the safety and well being of the students and staff of our district. The administration, faculty, and support staff of each school is dedicated to guiding and protecting our students throughout the school day.
