A Loyola Don is a young man who is at all times, in all places, and in all situations expected to act as a gentleman. Loyola Blakefield is committed to ensuring respect for the dignity of all members of our community. We recognize that learning must occur within the context of a safe, caring, respectful community. We further recognize that bullying, harassment, and intimidation exists in this world of advancing communication. Loyola is not a haven from that societal problem.
However, given that Loyola, as part of its mission, seeks to develop young men who are loving, our school community has a comprehensive plan in place to identify all forms of intimidation, to encourage timely reporting of any such incidents, to thoroughly investigate any claims, and to apply consequences consistent with the school’s disciplinary policies. In advance of any incidences, Loyola’s Safe School Committee coordinates efforts to educate students, parents, faculty, and staff through a variety of forums including orientation sessions, religion classes, assemblies, guidance lessons, and other age-appropriate means.
