*Prom 2022 is 2 months away!*

Berkeley High, we are two months away from prom 2022 at the San Francisco
Galleria. March 19 will be a celebratory night full of good music, food,
and making memories with your classmates. We hope to see you out there. We
also need to remind you to get vaccinated and encourage you to get the
booster shot well ahead of the big night. All guests must be fully
vaccinated, which means you must be 2 weeks out from the second dose of
your 2nd vaccine by March 19th. There is no testing option.

Please take advantage of the many vaccination opportunities in and around
Berkeley now so you can attend this event. Seniors, Juniors and their
guests are welcome to attend.

We also will be offering a discount to those students who qualify for free
& reduced meals.

Please complete the EZ Meal form well in advance. In order to receive the
discount, students will need to show the 21-22 verification letter from
BUSD Nutrition Services. Tickets will go on sale in mid-February so be on
the lookout for details as we approach those dates.

*Join Model United Nations!*

Join Model United Nations! We're a BHS club focused on simulating the
United Nations with the goal of learning about how the UN operates and
about global politics in general. Each club member gets to represent a
country and debates, negotiates, drafts resolutions, and votes from the
perspective of their country. If you're interested in joining, contact
berkeleyhighmodelun at gmail.com and we will catch you up to speed. We are a
relatively casual club, so prospective members need no prior knowledge of
politics or the UN. We meet every Friday at lunch on the south end of the
large bleachers (indicated on the map), or at C233 on rainy days.

*Notification of Non-Discrimination Policy*

The Berkeley Unified School District is committed to providing a
hostile-free working and learning environment. The District prohibits
discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, based
on actual or perceived race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender,
gender identity/expression, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation
status (related medical conditions), religion, color, national origin
(including language restrictions and possession of a driver’s license
(issued under Vehicle Code), ancestry, immigration status, physical or
mental disability (including clinical depression and bipolar disorder,
HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, epilepsy, seizure disorder, diabetes, multiple
sclerosis, and heart attack), medical condition (cancer-related and genetic
characteristics), military and veteran status, marital status, registered
domestic partner status, age (40 and above), genetic information, political
belief or affiliation (unless union related), a person’s association with a
person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived
characteristics, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local
law, ordinance, or regulation in any program or activity it conducts or to
which it provides significant assistance.

Discrimination is different treatment based on a protected characteristic
in the context of an educational program, work or activity without a
legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason that interferes with or limits the
individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services,
activities, or privileges provided by the District or includes an adverse
employment action.

Hostile environment harassment occurs when a target is subjected to
unwelcome conduct based on a protected characteristic, which is both
subjectively offensive to the target and would be offensive to a reasonable
person of similar circumstances/characteristics and is sufficiently so
severe, and so pervasive to interfere with or limit an individual’s ability
to effectively work or to participate in or benefit from the services,
activities, or opportunities offered by the District. Harassment may take
many forms, including but not limited to, verbal remarks and name-calling,
graphic and written statements, or any conduct that may be threatening or
humiliating. Harassment based on any of the above protected categories is a
form of unlawful discrimination and will not be tolerated by the District
and can result in disciplinary action against the offending student or

Upon witnessing an act of discrimination, harassment, bullying,
intimidation, and retaliation, based on actual or perceived protected
characteristics, school personnel are required to take immediate steps to
intervene when it is safe to do so. Once a school/office has expressed
notice or reason to know of such conduct, whether carried out by employees,
students, or third parties, it should take immediate and appropriate steps
to investigate, determine what occurred, take prompt and effective steps
reasonably calculated to end the conduct, eliminate a hostile environment,
if one has been created and prevent the conduct from occurring again. These
steps should be taken regardless of whether an individual makes a complaint
or asks the school/office to take action. Complaints are protected from
retaliation. The District prohibits retaliation against any person who
files a complaint or an appeal, reports instances of noncompliance,
discrimination, harassment, bullying, and intimidation, or who participates
in the complaint-filing or investigation process. This nondiscriminatory
policy applies to all acts related to school activity or school attendance
within any school/office under the jurisdiction of the Berkeley Unified
School District.
