School Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct

All students, parents, teachers, and staff have the right to be and feel safe in their school community. With this right also comes the responsibility to be respectful members of the school community and to be accountable for our actions.

Specifically, our school community will:
• Make learning a priority
• Always behave in a safe and respectful manner (halls, classrooms and on the yard)
• Show respect for others (physical and emotional)
• Arrive at school on time and remain on school property for the duration of the day
• Comply with school and board expectations regarding the responsible use of technology.
• Play in a safe, fair, and self-controlled way appropriate to the surroundings – eg. no bullying, play fighting, body contact games.
• Refrain from riding bicycles, skateboards, in-line skates, roller shoes, etc on school property, during school hours.
• Refrain from making any racist or homophobic comments or comments that cause emotional harm to others.

In situations where the above expectations are not followed, we will begin with a teaching approach to address the behaviour and practice appropriate conduct. In some situations, progressive discipline will be implemented, which could include loss of privileges, detentions, family conferences, or suspensions.
