Behavour Expectations/Disciplines

To maintain a safe and caring learning community, all students are required to accept and adhere to outlined school behavioral expectations. These expectations are reviewed with students on an ongoing basis and applied to the “Circle of Courage”. Appropriate student conduct is expected at school during class time, presentations, in the lunchroom, on the bus, on field trips as well as going to and from school.

Students are Responsible for their Behaviour

Consequences for failing to meet behavioral expectations may include:

  • Temporary removal of a student from a class or activity
  • Assignment to an alternative activity, task, or time out
  • Temporary withdrawal of school privileges
  • Informal or formal suspension
  • Community Service

Appropriate Language

Being able to use appropriate, respectful language is a valuable life skill. When language is offensive to others, hurt feelings may lead to further conflict. Name-calling, swearing, racial slurs, rude, and obscene language spoken, written, implied or gestured are unacceptable both inside the school and on school property.
