Students found in school after school hours without permission will be asked to leave and assigned appropriate consequences. Parents could be called to come and transport students home.

 

 

Holidays

Parents are asked to avoid extending school vacations. The periods immediately before and after major holidays are of special importance since testing and starting new units occur at those times.

Fire/Emergency Evacuation

During fire evacuations and other emergencies, everyone in the school must leave the building as quickly as possible without resorting to running; responding as quickly as possible to instructions given by teachers and staff members, and observing the necessary “no talking” rule in force during the evacuation of the building.

Tampering with a fire alarm and/or fire extinguishers will result in a fine being levied.

 

FOR SAFETY PURPOSES, STUDENTS MUST:

  • Follow the teacher’s instructions at ALL TIMES.

  • Walk with the classmates IN SILENCE to the exit indicated by the teacher (no running, no pushing).

  • Walk and stand outside in a straight single line with their group to the designated area.

  • Stay with their class IN SILENCE (do not mix with other classes).

  • Keep silent as teachers have to take attendance and wait for further instructions given by the firemen or the Principal.

  • Students who happen to be away from their classroom (washroom, etc.) when the fire alarm goes off, are to proceed outside using the closest exit and MUST immediately report to one of the secretary – DO NOT try to find your class.

Extra Curricular Responsibility

A school is reflected in its students. Westwood High Schools expects that all students behave appropriately whether they are in school, in transit or participating off premises in any school-organized activity.

Students must demonstrate to the teachers, advisors and/or coaches that they deserve to participate in an activity. Being a member of a school team or a co-curricular activity is a privilege, not a right.

Participation in extra-curricular activities is subject to regular school attendance, consistent effort in a student’s school work and appropriate behaviour. If any of the above is not being followed, a student may be withdrawn from the activity/ies. Participation is subject to approval by the school administration.

Inappropriate behaviour during a field trip/excursion may result in the student being sent home at the parents’ expenses, and he/she may be excluded from future field trips/excursions.

 

 

Textbooks

Textbooks are the property of the Lester B. Pearson School Board and must be returned at the end of every school year or upon withdrawal from school during the term.

Any loss or damage beyond reasonable wear must be paid for in full. Once a textbook has been issued, it is the student’s responsibility to look after it carefully.

  • If a new padlock is put on the locker, the student MUST inform the Main Office and his/her homeroom teacher.

  • If a lock has been stolen or tempered with, it is the responsibility of the student(s) to immediately replace the lock.
