“Appropriate steps were taken at the school level to insure the safety of all students and to impress upon the students the seriousness of engaging in positive peer interactions while avoiding conduct that may pose risk or concern to others,” he added. “All children need to feel safe and secure within the learning environment and we all have a role to play to make that happen.”
