School Expectation and Policies
Maintaining proper student conduct is essential to maximizing student learning. The emphasis is not on a list of rules but rather on students behaving in a responsible manner. Students receive certain privileges for appropriate and mature behaviour. Students who are sent to the office will be dealt with on an individual basis. Consequences will vary with the incident and number of times school administrators have had to deal with that student.
Physical or verbal intimidation (including online intimidation) violates individual students' rights. At the discretion of administration, the parents of any student identified as intimidating another will be contacted. Consequences could include loss of privileges, in-school suspension, community service, out of school suspension or referral to the RCMP.
Cell phone use and personal electronic devices
For reasons of safety, privacy and maintaining a proper learning environment, cell phones and other communication devices are NOT permitted in the classroom and are not to be used during the school day. Students must leave their phones in their lockers. This policy extends to the use of telephones, personal cameras, iPods and any text messaging devices. Using these devices may result in a staff member confiscating the device and may require that a parent retrieve the device. The school will not be held responsible for any personal electronic communication devices if lost or damaged.
