Code of Conduct

Students are to be treated with respect and dignity. In return, they must demonstrate respect for themselves, for others, and for the responsibilities of citizenship through acceptable behaviour.

Respect and responsibility are demonstrated when a student:
· comes to school prepared, on time, and ready to learn;
· shows respect for himself or herself, for others, and for those in authority;
· refrains from bringing anything to school that may compromise the safety of others;
· and follows the established rules and takes responsibility for his or her own actions.

Code of Conduct - Progressive Discipline and School Safety (pdf)

Personal Electronic Devices: SMART phones, iPods, iPhones and electronic games are not permitted at school.  

Responsible use of some electronic devices (e.g., iPad, tablets, Kindle,Kobo)to support classroom learning is welcome.  This is done under the guidance of the teacher.  These devices are to be used for instructional purposes only, under the supervision of a staff member.  Public access to WiFi is now available at the school.  No devices are to be used in hallways, lunchrooms, or on the yard. 

Dress Code: Students are expected to dress appropriately for school as outlined in the board dress code.  Examples of inappropriate clothing include slogans/graphics portraying reference to sex, race, profanity, vioence, alcohol and illegal substances as well as halters, crop tops, short shorts and chains.  Visibility of undergarments (e.g., camisole straps, bras, underwear, etc.) is not permitted.  Hat and hoods are not to be worn in school.  We seek the community's support of this sign of respect by asking guests to also remove their hats when entering the school.

  • A variety of nutritious, nut-free foods (e.g., smoothies, cereal, fruit, yogourt, milk) are provided for students to choose from. Parent volunteers generously prepare and share foods with students.
  • Our Breakfast Club is supported by the Hastings and Prince Edward Food for Learning Program and is made possible by a small group of volunteers who come in each morning to ensure that our students start the day off right!!


Parent Responsibility:

1. It is the responsibility of the parents, guardians or caregivers to contact the school each day their child is going to be late or absent from school (before 9:15am).

2. If a child does not return to school after leaving during the first break the parent must call the school and let us know that the child is safe at home.

3. Parents and guardians must also provide the school with complete and current emergency information.

Schools Responsibility:

1. Re: Morning attendance: If a parent does not contact the school it is the school's responsibility to contact the parent - first at home and secondly at the parent's place of work.

2. Re: Afternoon attendance: If a child does not return to school after leaving for lunch or leaves the school without permission during the day and the parent does not call the school, the school will call the home and parent work numbers to make sure they are aware that their child is not at school. If the school is unable to contact a parent at home or work to confirm that the child is safe, then the police are called to make sure that no harm has come to the child.
