The Alberta School Act states that a student shall conduct himself or herself so as to:

  • be diligent in pursuing the student’s studies;
  • attend school regularly and punctually;
  • cooperate fully with everyone [all adults] authorized by the board to provide education programs and other services;
  • comply with the rules of the school;

We expect students to:

  • use positive and inclusive language;
  • model positive social behaviors in all interpersonal interactions, including online;
  • demonstrate good digital citizenship by using technology in ethically and responsible ways;
  • demonstrate concern and care for the rights and property of others;
  • respect the rights of others to learn and to teach;
  • help keep our school environment clean and litter free.

Examples of behaviours that will result in suspension include, but are not limited to:

  • possession of or active contact with a weapon on a student’s person, backpack, or in a student‘s locker;
  • use, possession of, distribution, or active contact with drugs, alcohol, or inhalants (including cigarettes, Ecigarettes, and vaping devices) in school or on school board property;
  • threats, extortion, assault or conduct that endangers others, both in-person and online;
