4 Mission Statement Introduction It is the mission of Port Weller Public School to work with the community to provide a safe, positive, and nurturing environment that will challenge a child to become the best Canadian citizen possible. Goals To develop confident, self-directed, life-long learners who have mastered the basic skills of literacy, numeracy, group learning, and interpersonal skills. To have students take responsibility for their actions. To encourage students to embrace healthy, active lifestyles. To foster respect for self, others, and the environment. Letter from Principal Welcome to a new year at Port Weller Public School. A partnership of students, parents, and educators is vital to the optimum learning success of children. Research proves that parental involvement with a child s school is one of the biggest contributing factors to academic success. Organizational skills are another key to student success and ultimately a key to positive life skills in the real world. This Parent & Student Handbook is to help parents with daily routines and school procedures. I hope that this information will be helpful and used as a reference guide. Each year this handbook is updated so please feel free to let the office know if you have suggestions. Since students are successful when parents are involved in their education, I invite parents to volunteer at Port Weller Public School. You can be a driver to events throughout the year, assist in the library and/or classroom, become a member of the School Advisory Council, or help with the Home Reading Program, to name a few of the many volunteer opportunities. Talking with your child(ren) about daily school life and encouraging them to do their best is essential to student achievement. When home and school are in partnership and sharing the same goals, our students can only win. Thank you for your partnership and I look forward to a very successful school year. Sincerely, S. Storrey Principal -3-

5 School Procedures Inside Attendance & Lates Regular and punctual attendance is paramount to academic success. Please call the school at if your child will be absent or late at any time. Please leave the child s name, grade, and reason for their absence with your communication. If the school does not receive a call reporting an absent child, contact will be made by the school to investigate reasons for the absence. Our telephones are answered by our secretary on school days from 8:15 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. You may call the school to leave a message at any time of day as we also have a call-answer service. If leaving early, students must have a written note from their parents (or guardians) and must also sign out at the office. If a student is being picked up by an adult other than a parent, a written note identifying this person must be provided and identification may be requested. All students arriving late must report to the office to receive a late slip from the secretary before entering their classroom. We encourage all students to arrive on time as interruptions disrupt lessons. Also, valuable information is often missed when students are late. Students are considered late if they arrive after the bell rings at 8:50 a.m. Bell Times Adhering to set times helps the school run smoothly. Please keep in mind the following: supervision of all students begins at 8:30 a.m., after 8:50 a.m. students will need a late slip from the office to enter a class, students are supervised until they have boarded buses for home., morning Kindergarten students are dismissed at 11:30 a.m., students are welcome to eat lunch at school provided they adhere to the lunch-time expectations and routines, and students must stay on school property unless special permission has been granted in writing by the parent and signed by the school principal. The bell times are listed on the next page. -4-

Time Periods Main Sections 8:30 arrival 8:45 entry 8:50 1 Arrival st 1 Instructional Block 9: :30 announcements 10:35 nutrition break Break 10:50 fitness break 11: : :45 nutrition break 1:05 fitness break 1:35 5 2:35 6 3:10 homeroom 3:15 dismissal nd 2 Instructional Block Lunch rd 3 Instructional Block End Entrance & Exit Students should arrive in the playground no earlier than 8:30 a.m. when teacher supervision is provided. All students should remain outside in the playground until the bell rings to begin classes. Students should refrain from entering through the front door. This is reserved for students with special needs, since the bus drop off and pick up is at the front entrance s reserved-parking area. All students are to enter and exit through their assigned door (see list below) unless being physically picked up by their parents: Kindergarten Door (west): All students enter only at the appropriate bell times through Room 11's western, exterior classroom door and students in Room 10 will follow the same entrance/exit routines and carry on through to their classroom across the hall. Parents can drop off and pick up outside Room 11's exterior door. At Port Weller, we have students who are available at 8:30 a.m., in addition to staff, to monitor JK/SK students off the bus and in the Kindergarten play area. -5-

7 Primary Doors (north): Rooms 12, 14, 16, and 17 Centre Doors (east): Rooms 8 and 9 Junior/Intermediate Doors (east): Rooms 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7 Front doors (south) Room 3 (students with special needs) Students are expected to leave the school property as soon as they are dismissed at the end of the school day. Primary students who walk will exit out the Primary (north) doors and parents can meet them there under the shelter. Parents supervise the students to the car or home. Primary students walking home with an older buddy or sibling will exit the Primary doors and go north to Lakeshore Road where there is a crossing guard at Niagara Street. Or alternatively, students will walk south across the playground to the crossing guards along Parnell Road, first at Bunting Road and then at Niagara Street. Bus students will also exit through the Primary (north) doors and walk on the paved path along the perimeter of the school to where the fenced and paved bus-loading zone is located. Absolutely no Primary students are allowed in the school parking lot without adult supervision. Internet Use All parents must complete a form (Acceptable Use Agreement for Student Use of ICT) which gives their child permission to use the Internet at school. While students are using the Internet, close supervision is required by the teachers. Students are not permitted to use chat lines at school and use of is very limited and for educational purposes only. Each student is given a username and password to access and use the computers. (Policy: D -1, Administrative Procedure: 4-2). Lost Articles When students misplace personal items, we try to make every effort to recover them. Clothing from the gym or left outside for example, is placed in the Lost and Found box by the Centre (east) doors (across from the staff room). More valued items, such as eye glasses, are turned into the office and (if not claimed by the end of the day) an announcement is made the next day. However, students don t always check the Lost and Found or listen to announcements. Please reinforce with your child that it is their responsibility to take care of their personal property as the school is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Therefore, we recommend that students do not bring valuable items to school (e.g., jewellery, cameras, electronic games, etc.) -6-

8 Money Collection Several times during the year, we collect money for school trips and other functions. Please help us out by making sure that any money sent from home is in a sealed envelope or Ziploc bag with your child s name and the teacher s name on the outside. Since we do not keep cash on hand in the office, we cannot make change. If you pay by cheque, please make cheques payable to Port Weller Public School. If you are sending all the money with one child, please notify your other child s teacher by indicating this on the envelope. Nutrition Break Expectations (Includes Lunch) All students are to remain at school for the first nutrition break. Those students wishing to go home may do so during the longer, second nutrition break. Students staying at the school must follow the rules as outlined in the application form. We need to know the whereabouts of every student at Port Weller during the nutrition breaks. May we suggest that students only be given two options during the second nutrition break: go home stay at school Please do not give permission to eat at restaurants or at other student s homes. We cannot be responsible for students who are given permission to leave the school grounds. Lunch application forms will be sent home with all students, these must be completed and returned to school. Parents, please go over the Nutrition Break rules with your child and sign the form and return to your child s teacher. Telephone Use The telephone is a business phone as well as used for parent s inquiries. Therefore, we restrict the student s use of the phone to emergencies. We will use discretion when making decisions concerning student use. YMCA Daycare Program The YMCA Child Care Centre has a satellite centre here at Port Weller in Room

9 School Procedures Outside Bus Transportation At Port Weller, certain students are eligible for bus transportation depending on the distance of your house from the school. Port Weller does not arrange bus transportation. It is arranged at the DSBN board office by the Transportation Department. If you want to check into your child s eligibility, please call the Transportation office at We request that changes in your child s transportation arrangements be brought to the attention of the school secretary. S/he can notify, by , changes to the Transportation office. However, we must have confirmation that the bus driver has been notified by the Transportation office. It is for the safety of the student that our school database be up-to-date, in the event we have occasional personnel in the office. Crossing Guards The City of St. Catharines provides crossing guards at the following intersections: Parnell Road and Niagara Street Parnell Road and Bunting Road Lakeshore Road and Niagara Street Lakeshore Road and Bunting Road Lakeshore Road and Arthur Street Please remind your children to be respectful of these valuable people who are consistently there to ensure your child arrives and returns safely. Field Trips There will be field trips provided for students throughout the year. There are theatrical, sporting, and overnight trips that are offered at Port Weller Public School. We connect these events with the curriculum as a supplement to regular education in the classroom. These excursions are thoughtfully conceived, well-planned, and executed with careful attention to all phases of the trip. When planning field trips, teachers must complete a form entitled Request for Approval - Out of School Programs and submit it to the Principal for approval. Parental consent forms are necessary. A letter is sent home to inform parents of curriculum expectations, specific dates and times, costs, methods of transportation, supervision, adultstudent ratio, and to obtain parental consent. We ask that these forms be sent back promptly as we need to tally the final numbers of students that are attending. This affects planning, the price, as well as the number of busses we order. When signed permission forms do not come in, it means that your child cannot attend. -8-

10 Copies of these forms, as well as phone numbers to reach the class while on the trip, are left with the secretary the day of the trip. A bus list is left on file at the office. If more than one bus is used, students must remain on the same bus for the entire trip. If cars or taxis are being used, student lists must also be submitted. Volunteer Drivers must complete a form called Authorization to Transport Students Participating in School Events. This form also applies to teachers transporting students in their own vehicles. It is the law that all students under the age of eight years old must be in a car seat when transported in personal vehicles. A copy of each student s registration form accompanies the teacher on all trips. Attendance of students is taken at each boarding and departure, and periodically during trips. First aid equipment is taken on all school trips along with any other bee sting kits, Epi-pens, etc. Homework Good sense and an understanding of needs must be used in assessing the amount of homework done each night. It is important that the location at which the work is to be done is consistent and well-lit. Ensure that this area can be supervised and is free from distractions. Parents need a healthy interest in homework. They should be helpful without assuming sole responsibility for doing the work. If a child has made a genuine effort to complete the homework or extenuating circumstances prevent the homework from being done, a parental note explaining the situation will often avoid loss of marks and will help remedy the situation. (Please note that an extracurricular activity is not an excuse). This type of communication can be very effective, particularly when written in the student s agenda. This book helps to maintain a record of concerns over the year. Primary Grades Homework is not regularly assigned and should be less than 15 minutes in any instance. Nightly reading, numberfact revision and games allow for effective parental involvement. Junior Grades Twenty to thirty minutes per day of homework and subject review will help to maintain and improve student performance. Notebook organization and review should occur regularly. Daily reading for enjoyment should be encouraged. Intermediate Grades Students in Grades 7 and 8 might spend up to one hour (unless more time is required) due to: - poor utilization of class time - absence -poor time management in the completion of special projects -test/exam preparation Teachers attempt to spread out the work load for students, in order that special assignments, tests, speeches and projects are not due at the same time. Many teachers send parents letters outlining what students are doing and what special projects or tests are coming up in the near future. With some students, it may be -9-

11 necessary for parents to help them budget their time more wisely. Please watch for the Cycle Reports that come home each week. Go on the Port Weller Web site to view homework assigned. What to do when your child says they have no homework? Try some of the following: review multiplication tables review subject material research on-line organize notebooks read, read, read work ahead on projects Parking We have parking provided at the front of the school along the fenced walkway. We are also fortunate that Covenant Church offers space for parking opposite the school on Parnell Road for brief drop off and pick up. The bus area at the west end of the school must be kept open so that the Kiss and Ride method can be effective. We have designated areas for cars to park when picking up or dropping off students and appreciate your co-operation in keeping our students safe. We ask that you obey the following traffic rules: follow the direction of the one-way signs and markings painted on the parking lot cross with the crossing guard provided at Bunting/Parnell Road when crossing from Covenant Church do not park in the driveways and in spaces designated for people with handicaps do not double park and block other cars in please do not cross in front of traffic that is exiting the parking lot The Kiss and Ride procedure can work if parents who drive their children to school remain in their car and drop off their children at the walkways provided for their safety (students need to be ready to depart upon arrival at the walkway). Please allow enough time for students to arrive safely. Many accidents happen when people are in a rush. It is worth the time and effort to keep all students safe. In order to keep traffic moving, when picking up your child, please do not idle in the parking lot, rather pull into an empty space or arrange to pick up across the street. Sports Team Travel When sports teams travel with volunteer drivers, the students will be returned to the school, unless other arrangements are made. When walking home, students are expected to walk in pairs. The office phone will always be available for students to call for a ride. Students must return on the bus or by the parent who brought them. Any students leaving with a parent must notify the supervisor involved. Every year, a consent form must be completed by parents that gives permission to students to travel with volunteers. -10-

12 Vandalism Vandalism will not be tolerated. The Principal will investigate and deal with minor incidents of vandalism. He/She will inform the parents of the students responsible of the consequent disciplinary action taken and/or reimbursement required for the damages. The Principal shall contact the Police immediately upon the discovery of any major act of vandalism and inform the DSBN Plant Department of the vandalism so that the building can be properly secured. The Principal shall also inform the Regional Superintendent of major acts of vandalism (Policy G-7, Police Protocol, page 5). -11-

13 Safety Procedures Access to Students and the School Access to the School Building For safety reasons, all outside doors, except the main office door and the east doors by the portable, are locked at all times while students are in classes. Access to Students / Custody Issues Unless special custody arrangements have been made, students will be released to their parents or legal guardians ONLY. Schools must have official court documentation in the student s Ontario Student Record (OSR) file regarding custody. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to report any changes in the court document to the office immediately. If parents wish their child to go home with another adult, a written note or phone call must be received by school personnel. The note/call must indicate the name of the adult and the relationship to the child before picking up the child. Identification may be requested. Junior/Senior Kindergarten teachers will only release a student to authorized persons. Either a note, discussion in person, or a call to the school must be made in order to confirm who the authorized person will be. Bicycles & Helmets Bicycles Students who ride their bicycle to school must walk their bicycle to the racks upon reaching school property. The school does not assume responsibility for damage or loss to bicycles left on school property. Students are strongly advised to lock their bicycle. No riding of bikes on school property is allowed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. This also means that students arriving from Lakeshore Road are not permitted to cut across the school property with their bicycles, but must instead ride around the property on the sidewalk to the south-east corner to park their bikes (near the Bunting-Parnell intersection). Parents are asked to follow the same procedure and walk their bikes on school property. Helmets Students riding their bicycle to school must wear a proper helmet as per The Highway Traffic Act section 104 (2.1). Parents/guardians should be aware that if a student is involved in recreational skating or skiing throughout the year, helmets are mandatory. -12-

14 Bus Safety Rules of the Bus While riding on a school transportation vehicle, it is the responsibility of the student: 1. to follow the school Code of Conduct 2. to exercise care, caution, good manners, and consideration for others 3. to remain seated as directed by the driver 4. to avoid anything which might disturb the driver or interfere with the safe operation of the vehicle 5. not to throw anything inside the bus or out a window 6. not to open or close bus windows without the permission of the driver 7. to obey promptly the instructions of the school bus patroller 8. to refrain from smoking, using matches, alcohol, or consuming any food or beverage while on the bus 9. to keep all parts of the body inside the vehicle at all times Discipline Reports of student misbehaviour will be sent to the Principal in writing. Such reports may result in a student having his/her bus riding privileges suspended. Students, or their parents, will be held financially responsible for any wilful damage done while on the bus. In order to ensure the safe arrival of all children to their residence, the following guidelines for bus transportation are implemented. students must ride on the bus they were originally assigned to. Students will not be given permission to change busses for any reason. All requests must be cleared by Transportation. (A parent must make arrangements at least one day prior). students who normally walk to and from school will not be permitted to ride the bus to a friend s house.

15 Fire Drills Throughout the school year there will be spontaneous fire drills where the entire school will need to be evacuated. This occurs approximately six times and includes any weather condition. Thus, it is imperative that all students have proper footwear on at all times (not just socks!). Lockdown Drills Throughout the school year there will be spontaneous lockdown drills where the entire school will be in lockdown mode. This occurs approximately four times and includes any weather condition. Thus, it is imperative that all students have proper footwear on at all times. Prohibited Items Students should not bring valuable personal property to school. Loss and theft are facts of life and often these lost or stolen articles are never returned to their rightful owner. Other items that may cause unwanted distraction and/or health and safety perils are also prohibited on school property. Please find the following two lists helpful: Items NOT to Be Brought to School hard balls (including hard rubber balls) hockey sticks and lacrosse sticks non-foldable scooters pills and medicine chewing gum electronic games and/or toys toy weapons (e.g., toy gun) Items NOT to Be Brought to School as They Give Cause for Suspension tobacco products alcohol and other drugs weapons (e.g., knives, sling shots, cap guns, laser pointers, etc.) matches and/or lighters Items Permitted to Be Brought to School With Restrictions bicycles should be locked up and not ridden on school property communication devices (i.e., cell phones and pagers) are not to be used during the school day and must be stored in a backpack for the purpose of providing safety for the commute to and from school audio devices (i.e., MP3 players, CD players, and radios) are not to be used during school time and must be stored in a backpack during the day including nutrition and fitness breaks scooters must be foldable skateboards and roller blades are to be stored during the day and not ridden on school property -14-

16 SAFE School Plan S.A.F.E. stands for Secure Atmosphere For Education. Port Weller Public School strives to provide a secure atmosphere for all students, while being as inviting to guests and visitors as possible. It is our goal to promote proactive procedures to ensure that we have a school that is as secure as possible, without creating panic or developing a fortress mentality. Further safety issues are dealt with in the Port Weller Code of Conduct. We realize that it is virtually impossible to include and anticipate every situation that may arise regarding safety and security within the school environment. However, together we can all become conscientious in our efforts to model safe behaviour practices and continue to develop an awareness in our children that personal safety is a lifetime skill that needs to be practised at all times. A secure, safe school will only exist if both home and school work together to ensure student safety. We look forward to the co-operation of staff, students, parents and community as we strive to provide the children with a Secure Atmosphere For Education. School Closings Sometimes the school is closed due to inclement weather and emergency closings. Please listen to the following radio stations regarding possible bus cancellations or school closures: CKTB 610 CJRN 710 CHAM 820 CHML 950 CKOC 1150 CHSC 1220 CHTZ 97.7 FM CKEY FM K-LITE FM CHRE FM During a school day that is already in session please DO NOT call the school regarding closures as this ties up our lines for us to make outgoing calls. Student Medical Concerns Any medical conditions or concerns are listed on the Elementary Student Registration Form. Any child taking medication at school is required to have his/her doctor complete a form entitled Authorization of Administration of Oral/Topical Medication. This form must also be completed by the parent for students who are taking non-prescription medication (e.g., Tylenol, cough syrup, etc.). The administration of the medication is the responsibility of the Principal or designate. Parents are requested to bring any refills or changes in medication directly to the office rather than sending it with the student. Any left over medications will not be sent home with the student. We ask that parents pick up the left over medication from the office at the end of the year. -15-

17 Allergies An Emergency Action Plan must be completed for a highly allergic (Anaphylaxis) child. These forms are kept with the necessary medication in the Principal s office. Names and photos are compiled, with a list of allergies and necessary actions to be taken in the event of an emergency. Copies are posted in the staff room, office, and applicable classrooms. First Aid Emergency phone numbers (provided by parents) for students are available to staff on the Student Verification Form. In case of medical emergency, every attempt will be made to call the Emergency Priority phone numbers that were provided by the parent/guardian. Depending on the nature of the emergency, the student may either wait at the office for the parent or contact to arrive, OR MAY BE TRANSPORTED TO THE HOSPITAL BY AMBULANCE. A First Aid kit is kept up to date in the office area and a Health and Safety Bulletin Board is maintained in the staff room. Injuries which may require medical care are recorded and reported on a form to the Ontario School Board Insurance Exchange (OSBIE). Supervision A supervision schedule is established by the staff for teachers to supervise the school yard, beginning 15 minutes prior to morning entry and after school for bus students only. Expectations for appropriate behaviour and activities on the school yard have been clearly outlined in the Code of Conduct for our school. Students outside at recess are only allowed in the school with the permission of the staff member on duty in the yard. On extremely cold days, the Principal makes a decision, based on school-board information, if students should be permitted inside. Recesses may be shortened or the students may have an indoor recess. During indoor recesses, teachers on duty circulate to watch over activities. Visitors & Volunteers At Port Weller we welcome and encourage visitors and volunteers, however, in order to maintain a safe school environment for our students, and also to reduce the number of disruptions in the classrooms while learning is going on, we ask parents and visitors coming into the school to comply with the following safe entry procedure: 1. If visiting or volunteering in the school, parents are asked to go to the office first to sign in and receive an identification tag, then the secretary will direct you to where you need to go. Please do not be offended if staff members question your presence in the hallways. To ensure all -16-

18 student s safety, we must consistently follow this procedure. 2. Parents delivering lunches or other items are asked to leave items at the office and the secretary will page the student to come and collect the items. 3. Appointments and early dismissals are arranged by the parent and the child in advance by informing the office by phone, note, or agenda. 4. When picking up children for appointments, parents are asked to come to the office first and the secretary (or designate) will page the child to come down to meet them, if he or she is not already waiting. 5. Parents are asked not to wander the halls without announcing themselves at the office first. It is difficult for the staff to recognize every parent or guardian who comes into the school. 6. Students should not be called out of class unless there is some sort of emergency. Messages will be passed on to each child. -17-

19 Code of Conduct Introduction We need your help. It is much more difficult for schools to do a good job of educating children without having full parental support. Teaching appropriate behaviour is a joint venture between the home and the school. Students benefit most when the home supports the proposition that students must obey rules of safety, demonstrate respect for themselves and others, and take responsibility for their choices and actions. With this in mind, the staff, students, and the School Advisory Council have reviewed the Code of Conduct for Port Weller Public School and have established three basic guidelines that cover the behaviour expectations at Port Weller: Be Safe Be Responsible Be Respectful A matrix of student behaviours has been developed and is organized with these three headings. It gives details of student behaviour so that students and staff know what is expected. We encourage parents and guardians to back up our decisions at home in order to best serve your children. However, if you have concerns, come to the school and discuss it with us. Please read the Code of Conduct, which includes the behaviour matrix, discuss it with your child(ren), sign the response form, and return it to your child(ren) s teacher. Students at Port Weller, like members of any community, have both rights and responsibilities. It is the obligation of the school to protect those rights and insist upon those responsibilities. In addition, if the members of our school are going to be safe and happy, if our school is to be maintained in a clean and healthy way, and if our mission and goals are to be achieved, there must be some rules. Rules do three things: they tell people what they can do, they tell people what they cannot do, and they make it possible for people to live and work together in harmony. Furthermore, there are consequences for all of our actions. This document also describes consequences for disobeying rules and not being responsible. The purpose of this Code of Conduct is to ensure that all students and their parents understand the students rights and responsibilities, our school rules, and the consequences for violating school rules. This Code of Conduct is based on the Education Act, Regulation 262, the Provincial Code of Conduct, and the D.S.B.N. Code of Conduct for Elementary Schools. Finally, the ultimate goal of this Code of Conduct is to assist our students to become outstanding citizens and to treat others as they would like to be treated. Student citizenship leads to productive school work and, ultimately, a good education for your child to prepare them to positively influence our society in the future. -18-

20 Student Rights In order to achieve their maximum potential, students have the right to: equal education opportunity learn in a safe, undisturbed, and positive environment be free from verbal, sexual, physical, electronic, or relational harassment be counselled fair and just treatment by teachers related to performance and conduct be disciplined in a humane way receive assistance from their teachers be respected Student Responsibilities In general, students have the responsibility to: attend classes regularly and punctually support the Hands Off rule (which includes any fighting, kicking, aggressive body contact, rough play, etc.) come to class with necessary books and materials be diligent in their studies (including homework completion) develop self-discipline observe the Code of Conduct respect authority and the persons in positions of authority respect the rights and personal property of others care for school property and equipment be honest with staff and peers be clean in person and habits be courteous to others (which includes refraining from inappropriate gestures) be sure all school correspondence to parents reaches home be free from bullying others (including physical, sexual, verbal, written, or electronic harassment threats of any kind will not be tolerated) report incidents of bullying or mistreatment of others volunteer information and cooperate with staff in disciplinary cases Regarding clothing, students have the responsibility to: remove hats upon entry into the school building wear appropriate footwear at all times due to hygiene, safety, and fire regulations (recommended examples include footwear that have a closed toe, covered heel, and arch support) wear appropriate gym attire and athletic footwear during physical education classes wear clothing where the bottom of the top touches the top of the bottoms wear shorts and skirts longer (farther down) than the tips of your fingers when your arms are down at your sides leave inappropriate clothing at home which includes: personal possessions or clothing bearing written statements or pictures that are offensive, racist, suggestive, or refer to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco advertising halter tops, shirts with spaghetti straps, or mesh tops (unless a shirt is worn underneath) -19-

21 Student Consequences Below is a summary of potential consequences. Failure to comply with the school s Code of Conduct could result in one or more of these consequences being applied. The aim is to eliminate misbehaviour and to promote self-discipline. warning apology time out informal discussion loss of school privileges attendance or behaviour contract behaviour modification plan supervised study behaviour response letter parental contact detention -20- essay writing temporary removal from class community service parental interview restitution program change controlled timetable permanent removal from class suspension police or other agency referral expulsion Suspensions According to DSBN s Code of Student Behaviour, and DSBN Discipline Policy, A Principal may suspend a pupil because of: uttering a threat to inflict serious bodily harm on another person, possessing alcohol or restricted drugs, being under the influence of alcohol, swearing at a teacher or at another person in a position of authority, committing an act of vandalism that causes extensive damage to school property at the student s school or to property located on the premises of the student s school, bullying, any act considered by the principal to be detrimental to the moral tone of the school, any act considered by the principal to be detrimental to the physical or mental well-being of members of the school community, or any act considered by the principal to be contrary to DSBN or school codes of conduct. All suspensions range between one and 20 school days. Suspensions between six and 20 school days are referred to as long-term suspensions. During a suspension, students are not permitted to ride the bus to school, enter the school building or come onto school property for any reason for the duration of the suspension. In addition, the student may not attend any school-related activities, functions or events, even if he/she was expected to participate in these activities. Suspensions Leading to Expulsions The principal may consider recommending to the board that a student be expelled if s/he believes that the student has engaged in any of the following activities while at school, at a school-related activity, or in any other circumstances where the activity has a negative impact on the school climate: possessing a weapon, including possessing a firearm,

22 using a weapon to cause or to threaten bodily harm to another person, committing physical assault on another person that causes bodily harm requiring treatment by a medical practitioner, committing sexual assault, trafficking in weapons or restricted drugs, committing robbery, giving alcohol to a minor, an act considered by the principal to be significantly detrimental to the moral tone of the school and/or to the physical and mental well-being of others, a pattern of behaviour that is so inappropriate that the student's continued presence is detrimental to the effective learning and/or working environment of others, activities engaged in by the student on or off school property that cause the student's continuing presence in the school to create an unacceptable risk to the physical or mental well-being of others in the school or DSBN, activities engaged in by the student on or off school property that have caused extensive damage to the property of the DSBN or to goods that are/were on board property, any act considered by the principal to be a serious violation of the DSBN or school codes of conduct, or any act considered by the principal to be contrary to DSBN or school codes of conduct. When a student is on a suspension pending expulsion, the principal must conduct an investigation to determine whether to recommend expelling the student. The investigation will begin promptly following the suspension. Based on the results of this investigation, the principal may decide to recommend to the board that the child be expelled. Suspensions Leading to Expulsions Expulsions may apply to only the student's current school or to all DSBN schools. If a student is expelled from only her school, she will not be permitted on school property or school buses, and will not be able to participate in any school-related activities. If the Student Discipline Committee issues an expulsion from all DSBN schools, the student may only attend the R.I.S.E. program for expelled students. Expelled students will not be permitted on any other school property, and will not be able to participate in any activities that are connected to any other schools at the DSBN. Clothing Infractions Finally, in regards to clothing infractions, students who arrive at school in violation of the dress code will be asked to change or will be provided with appropriate clothing for the day. Consistently not following the dress code will be considered detrimental to the moral tone of the school and home will be contacted. Revised:

24 Communication In an effort to keep the students, staff, and parents informed of procedures, events, and community happenings, communication occurs in many ways at Port Weller. Since the students are often responsible for bringing letters and notices home, please check the pouch at the front of your child s agenda or for clarification, where applicable. Although not all classes receive communication in the same form, all attempt to keep the home and the school connected. Here are many ways that we try to keep the lines of communication open: Students daily announcements agenda/organizer class calendar cycle reports classroom homework boards phone calls main Port Weller Web site (see classroom Web sites (from the main school Web site, click on Staff) weekly or monthly letters sent home Code of Conduct (sections are posted throughout the school) Parent & Student Handook classroom meetings assemblies bulletin boards (e.g., sports, choir, clubs, etc.) teacher-student conferences Parents & Community student agendas main Port Weller Web site (see monthly newsletter - The Port Weller Treasure Chest (from the main school Web site, click on News, then Newsletters) community bulletin board - outside of the gym phone calls assemblies cycle reports School Advisory Council meetings (office is case conferences informal chats Port Weller school sign -23-

25 Community Support School Advisory Council The staff and students are indeed fortunate to have a vibrant and supportive School Advisory Council which meets regularly to plan and provide assistance for school activities. At these meetings, parents discuss school events and activities. They also give both fundraising advice and encouragement to the Principal and staff. Their primary goal is to help advise the school on issues involving student achievement and school improvements. We want to keep Port Weller Public School a great place for students to learn. All school council meetings are publicized in the monthly newsletter, on the school sign, and on our Web site. All parents are invited and encouraged to attend, whether or not they are part of the formal council. By being involved in the school, you will enhance your child s school experience. Each Fall, an opportunity is provided for parents to submit their name for Council membership. Please call the school or speak to any council member for information regarding Port Weller s School Advisory Council. Parent & Community Volunteers Volunteers are essential to making Port Weller Public School a great place to work and learn. In September, volunteer request forms are sent home and throughout the year as needs arise. All volunteer drivers must have an up-to-date consent form on file in the office. Community Bulletin Board Community news is posted on the bulletin board outside of the gymnasium. We will continue to highlight events and resources in the newsletter as well. School Advisory Council minutes and upcoming meeting dates are also available for your information. Please contact the principal if you wish to put information on the bulletin board. Revised:
