A safe, accepting and welcoming school climate is an individual, shared, and collective responsibility by each and every member of the school community. We continue to convene school assemblies, curate daily announcements, and utilize our various communication platforms to share expectations and practices for appropriate behaviour in the classroom, at recesses, on the bus commute, and boat commute to foster school and student safety. It is important that we continue to embed these expectations in all areas of school life. The Board Code of Conduct is applicable to all including staff, students, families, volunteers, visitors, vendors and community partners.
