​​​Our CBE Student Code of Conduct and CBE Progressive Student Discipline regulation apply to all of our students. They outline the roles and expectations for our students to promote positive and inclusive learning environments, help students to develop empathy and become good citizens both within and outside of the school community, and explain the consequences when a student’s disruptive behaviour negatively affects the learning environment.

Our CBE Employee Code of Conduct applies to all of our employees. The CBE maintains high standards for the conduct of its employees, and expects them to conduct themselves honestly and with integrity and exercise common sense, good judgement and discretion.​​​​

Code of Conduct

Responsibilities/Expectations of Students

Our Student Purpose Statement

I come to Grant MacEwan School to learn.
It is my right and responsibility to learn.
I do not have the right to interrupt my own learning or the learning of others:

  • In the classroom
  • On the playground
  • In the lunchroom
  • On the bus
    This is my purpose.

School Expectations

Show respect to the adult in charge.
Treat others with kindness and respect.
Use appropriate language.
Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself.
Look after school and personal property.
We are “bucket fillers, not bucket dippers.”

With our central purpose in mind, the following lists the expectations that are created to promote student growth and success:

  • Attend school regularly and arrive on time.
  • Respectfully enter and exit the school through assigned doors.
  • Remove outdoor shoes when entering the building.
  • Remove hats when indoors
  • Walk bicycles across school property and lock them securely in bike racks.
  • Complete assignments and follow school and classroom routines.
  • We encourage creative play at school during recess and the lunch hour time. Hazardous play equipment such as skateboards, heelies, rollerblades, scooters, baseballs or any bats are not allowed on school property during school hours.
  • We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen cellphones or any other electronic devices. Cell phones may not be used to record voice or photos and must be turned off during school hours.
  • No items are allowed at the school that could be used as a threat or a weapon.
  • Obtain permission from a staff member to use the telephone.
  • Use the creative playground appropriately – slide down the slide, feet first. Swing only back and forth on the tire swings. Leave what is on the ground, on the ground. No backpacks on while you are on the creative playground.

Lines of Communication

From time to time, questions or concerns may arise from something that has happened at school. We ask parents to support us in our efforts to work together to resolve any concerns that they may have. 

  • The first step for parents in voicing a concern is to talk to their child’s teacher. (Teachers are most knowledgeable about what is occurring with the children in their classroom, and most issues can and should be dealt with at that level)
  • Parents may choose to consult with the school administration regarding an issue after first talking with their child’s teacher. This kind of open, two-way communication between the school and parents is important. It creates a positive learning environment.
