A bullying situation is defined as one in which:
- one person is the target, over time, of repeated negative actions
- one person has more power, so the person being victimized feels that they can’t defend him/herself, and
- when one person, the target, feels embarrassed, hurt, scared, and/or angry.

Hallways and Class Changes
During class changes students must move immediately to their next class. Students should not need to go to their lockers between classes except for the scheduled morning locker break and before and after Physical Education classes. Students should have the books necessary for periods 1 and 2 when they go to homeroom, periods 3 and 4 when they finish locker break, and periods 5, 6, and 7 following the lunch break.
While in the hallways, respect for your fellow students is expected. Running, horseplay, and blocking the halls is not acceptable.
Smoking and vaping is illegal for anyone under the age of 18. Students found smoking or vaping on school property will have smoking materials confiscated, will receive either a warning or fine from the Calgary Police Service, and possible
school-based consequences. Students found smoking within sight of the school are also breaking the law and may face similar consequences.
The use, possession, or sale of drugs and/or alcohol is against the law and prohibited. Students found to be in possession or under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be immediately suspended from school. Meetings with parents and the school resource officer will determine next steps in the disciplinary process.
