Hazing

Participation in hazing is not permitted and goes against the Student Code of Conduct.

Natural Justice/Consequences and Resolving a Problem

We all make mistakes. It is what we do about this that really matters and helps us avoid making the same mistake twice. Our actions have consequences and our negative actions have negative consequences, which will require “repairs” to be made. “Own it and Fix it” is a common saying by JJ Admin and we know that is the only way forward to a truly happy contented life.

You may be able to negotiate a solution or “Fix it” by doing one or more of the following:

  • Talk to your teacher openly and admit to what has happened and why.
  • Contribute to solutions but also be respectful of what the teacher may want to have done.
  • If you need mediation seek a guidance counsellor out.
  • When a new solution is arrived at, you must COMMIT to completing as agreed.

Substitute Teachers

Substitute teachers are to be granted the same respect as regular classroom teachers.

Hallways and the Front Side Walk

Jack James High School also runs a preschool program Monday through Thursdays and has many other opportunities to engage in commercial activities with the public. It is therefore important, and will be enforced that Jack James students conduct themselves in the hallways and on the sidewalk in the front of Jack James in a respectful and appropriate manner.  We request that students demonstrate that they are good citizens and role models, and to refrain from swearing, playing music with offensive language and blocking the way of others in moving to and from their destination in the hallways or on the sidewalks. It is our hope that this will extend to the larger community around Jack James and build on our positive reputation in the community.
