Dear parents and students,
This week I continue to review some areas from our school policies that need a renewed commitment from some in our community. This information comes from our Primary or Secondary Handbooks or from other policies and procedures for the school.
Going Off Campus During Academic Hours
Once a student has arrived in the morning, they are not expected to leave the school until the end of the day. If a student needs to leave for a special reason, they must first obtain permission from the Deputy/Head of Campus.
Before leaving, students must sign out at the main reception.
Day students may leave campus in between class and afternoon activities (but not during class time), provided they have their parent’s/guardian’s permission to do so. Residential students have a process they must follow through their boarding parents.
Sable Square is a great temptation for students who may be waiting for a CCA scheduled in the second time slot. Since students are still under our care until the end of activities, it is important that we have clear instructions from parents as to whether their children are allowed to go off campus between activities. Please communicate clearly with your child and our office as to whether your child has permission to leave campus or not.
All students are expected to leave campus by the posted time. On days where a student does not have a CCA, we would expect the student to leave campus at the end of tuition time. If they are on campus, they should be participating in an organized and supervised activity. When a student needs to wait for a ride, they are expected to wait at the library, working on homework.
Thank you for your continued support,
Deputy Head of Campus
