The school evaluation policy is posted on our website. A note
containing the important points was sent home earlier this
year. It is important to know that a student is allowed to only
miss one test due to sickness. The second time they are absent
for a test, a doctor’s note must be provided upon arrival back
to school, otherwise the mark is a ‘0’ for that test.

Cell Phone Use
Until this year cell phones have been a non-issue at our school,
however, with improved technology we now have cell phone service
at the school. This has created a problem in that student use
of the cell phone during class time generated undo distractions
to others. The school policy is that for the first offense,
students will have the phone confiscated by the teacher and sent
to the office. The phone will only be returned when a
parent/guardian drops by the school to retrieve the cell phone.
The second offense will result in the suspension of the student
for one day. The purpose of this policy is not to enforce
punishment, but to ensure the classroom learning environment is
safe from disruptions. Students are encouraged to use their
cell phones during recess, lunch and after school.
Parents Dropping off Students at School
To ensure the safety of all students, we ask that parents not
drive onto the school parking lot during arrival and dismissal
times for students. No private vehicles are permitted to travel
on the road at the rear of the building. Busses are expected to
arrive at school at 8:15 in the morning and depart at 2:55 in
the afternoon. For no reason is any vehicle to be parked in the
fire lane at the front of the building. Parents have often
neglected this emergency lane as they park there to pick up
their child or to drop something off at the general office. Any
vehicle found to be parked in this emergency lane, with a driver
still in the vehicle or not, and for any length of time, will be
reported to the local RCMP. The safety of your children is our
Parents Visiting School During the Day
All parents and visitors who come to the school to see their
children or to drop off items to them during the school day are
to check in at the general office. No parent is permitted to
move throughout the building to classrooms. Once again, the
safety of your children is our greatest concern. An environment
where adults are moving freely about in and out of a building
filled with young children is not safe.
We have students and teachers with severe allergies at our
school. A reaction to certain products and foods could prove to
be very harmful for several of our students, and in some cases
they could even prove to be fatal. For this reason the school
has been declared free of any source of peanuts, all fish and
all perfumes, aftershaves and colognes.
If your child has an appointment or a valid reason to leave
school early, please send a note to school indicating the time
that they are being picked up and who is to pick them up.
Due only to sickness or an emergency will students be permitted
to call home for an early dismissal. In the past the
number of early dismissals has been quite large, especially on
Fridays. Classes do go ahead as scheduled on Friday
afternoons at Baltimore School and parents are strongly
encouraged to ensure their children are indeed in class.
