The aim of the school is to guide, teach, and counsel students in self-responsibility. Students are expected to exhibit behavior in accordance with their maturity. Discipline is progressive, and there are consequences for students who are unable to respond to continued efforts toward self-direction. Our ultimate goal is to help students make positive choices, and to guide them as they do this. We work hard to be Safe, Respectful and Responsible.
Suspension from school is a last resort that the Principal uses only when necessary. The following are examples of behaviors which are grounds for suspension and/or expulsion: possession of drugs, weapons or smoking materials (including matches), fighting, truancy, defiance, and thievery. The Board of Education has adopted a “zero tolerance” drug and alcohol policy, which is strictly enforced. Suspension may be for a period of up to five days during which a parent-teacher conference should take place. Only the Board of Education may expel a student after granting the parents an opportunity for a hearing.
