Anti-Hazing Policy

Hazing is any action or situation which recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a person, or willfully destroys or removes public or private property, for the purpose of belonging to an organization. All school students, faculty, staff and recognized organizations are responsible for abiding by this policy, both on campus and off. Anyone who witnesses or suspects that hazing has occurred shall immediately report what was witnessed, or the basis for the suspicion that hazing has taken place, to the Head of School. If hazing has occurred in connection with a TQS club or sport, then the incident shall also be reported to the person or coach responsible for the club or sport. The Head of School shall have discretion to impose any discipline deemed appropriate against both the individual who engaged in the conduct and the TQS club or sport of which they are a member, up to and including expulsion or dismissal, and does not preclude any criminal penalty. TQS will cooperate fully with law enforcement as part of any investigation.
