Students are allowed to wear anything they choose as long as it conforms with the school Code of Conduct requirements for the intended activity and does not promote drugs or alcohol, display offensive images or language, or encourage discrimination. Appropriate dress is important in any school setting. Students cleanliness, neatness, and appropriateness are all factors that transfer into their adult lives. ELECTRONICS During instructional time students are not to use any personal electronic device, unless deemed for educational purposes by the instructor of the class. Inappropriate use of technology within the building includes, but is not limited to loud music, recording

of images, sound or video without explicit permission and sharing or transferring of others personal information through social networking. John Barsby reserves the right to extend the school code of conduct policy on personal technology for the purpose of maintaining safety of students and staff. John Barsby Community School is not responsible for electronic devices that are lost, stolen, or damaged while on school property. ATTENDANCE Educational research has shown that the largest predictor of student success is regular, consistent attendance. As a staff, we will be focusing on this in 2019-2020. We ask that parents phone in and excuse all absences. Students who are late in the morning report to the counselling area to sign in. This is a change from last year and is so that counsellors and Child and Youth Care workers can

help to monitor attendance patterns. Students who are late after lunch should report to the main office to sign in. Unexcused absences will be deemed as skipping and students will be held accountable John Barsby has an amazingly supportive staff- come to school and be successful! OTHERS THINGS TO NOTE: SMOKING/VAPING: Students are reminded that there is no smoking, vaping, or chewing in the school building or on school property or in vehicles while you are on school grounds. Students found outside of this policy will be subject to school discipline. PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING: Both of these are against our values as a learning community at John Barsby. Students who cheat on tests or major assignments, plagiarize, or who allow another student to copy their work: a) May receive a zero mark b) Will have their parents contacted by the teacher c) May be referred to the office administration GET INVOLVED

CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES School clubs, sports and activities are another area in which students can get involved in their school and meet new friends. They allow both staff and students to pursue common interests in a non-curricular and informal setting. Although available choices may vary from year to year, a wide variety of sponsored clubs and activities are offered at John Barsby. Stay Tuned for more info!
