THE DIGNITY FOR ALL STUDENTS ACT
2020 – 2021 School Year

To Park Avenue Elementary Students:
New York State passed a law called the “Dignity For All Students Act.” The goal of the law is for students to feel safe and supported in their school. Students cannot make fun of where someone is from, what someone looks like, or how someone acts. If anyone says or does something that makes you feel mad, bad, or sad, please tell an adult.
