Student Responsibilities


Attendance

Students are expected to log into their e-learning course 5 days per week and to submit work according to schedule.  Regular log-ins, timely submission of work and ongoing communication with your teacher are essential. Students not meeting these requirements place themselves at risk of being withdrawn.  

Students must call their teacher when they are absent. See the Contact Us page for call-in numbers.

All school members will adhere to the following standards of behaviour:
  1. Respect and comply with all federal, provincial and municipal laws;
  2. Demonstrate honesty and integrity;
  3. Respect the differences in people, their ideas and opinions;
  4. Treat one another and staff with respect, fairness and dignity at all times, especially when there is disagreement;
  5. Respect and treat others, regardless of, for example, race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability;
  6. Respect the rights of others;
  7. Show the proper care and regard for school property and the property of others;
  8. Take appropriate measures to help those in need;
  9. Seek assistance from a member of the school staff, if necessary, to resolve conflict peacefully;
  10. Respect all members of the school community, especially persons in a position of authority;

The standards of behaviour as outlined in the provincial Code of Conduct apply to all members of the school community - students, parents/guardians, teachers or other staff members, volunteers and visitors.  Students 18 or older are considered adults so the procedures of the Criminal Code will be followed if students are charged with a criminal offense. Video surveillance systems are installed at both campuses for the security and safety of all students and staff.
