Digital Citizenship

All members of our school community are expected to be good digital citizens who demonstrate respect, responsible behaviour and overall good character when using technology and/or engaging in online activities. The use of technology is an integral part of teaching and learning at our school. 

Teachers and students use digital technologies to access information, communicate ideas, and demonstrate fundamental understandings. Students are expected to use our computer network and digital learning tools to engage in activities that facilitate meaningful and authentic learning experiences. By utilizing the school’s computers and/or the network (including Google sites and student email), students and parents agree to our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for Electronic devices and Networked Information Resources. 

Students are encouraged to make time for physical activity and avoid spending excessive time in front of a computer screen.

Personal Electronic Devices & Wireless Access

At this time, students are not permitted access or use of their personal electronic devices during instructional time or within the school building.

Students and Cell Phones

No cellphones in the school for any calls at all and no cell phones in any class or learning space – students may use the office phone or your classroom phone if your teacher has given permission or use their phones outside the school to make calls.  

Students are not to take or share pictures or videos of anyone in the school at any time. Students capturing images of our school and students will do so using the school’s technology under the direction of a staff member. 

If students are using their phones inappropriately they will be reminded to put them away in their lockers or keep them at home. If students are asked more than once to put their phone in their locker, they will be directed to the office to lock phone in the safe until the end of the day.

School Computers and Electronic devices are to be used by students and staff for educational purposes and to enhance learning and teaching. Technology use is a privilege and the expectation is that it will be used in a responsible, efficient, ethical and legal manner. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen personal devices.
