the staff of the Ridgewood blog
Ridgewood NJ, sources tell the Ridgewood blog that in September 2018 a member of the Ridgewood Girls Varsity Tennis Team posted a derogatory unsportsmanlike photo on social media of a Ramapo High School Girls varsity tennis player . Despite complaints from Ramapo School representatives and parents , the Ridgewood High School administration has done nothing and according to sources acted like nothing ever happened.
Many readers recall the events of last October and the fighting incident that took place at Stevens and Brookside fields . At that time the Ridgewood blog asserted , “Ridgewood High School “ANTI BULLYING POLICY” was adapted in 2016 , it has very clear rolls for students , parents and staff, While the kids involved in the incident have gotten all the attention , the little public information that is available about the incident and what led up to the incident would lead anyone to suspect the Ridgewood High School anti bullying policy , despite years of finger wagging was not followed and it appears that not only were students documented to be in violation of the policy but clearly so were some staff and parents .”
In November of last year the Ridgewood blog asked , “So the question remains for the Ridgewood School System ; who knew ,when did they know and why did they not act? ”
A lawsuit that broke last year , accuses Ridgewood Schools of a Cover up and Violating it’s Own “Cyber Bullying” and Social Media Policies.
A year later nothing has changed . Is Ridgewood breeding a culture of bullying , or is the real policy ignore it and ope it goes away ?
