DISCIPLINE

The staff at Saint Anne’s is committed to provide quality education for each child and to work with each child in as constructive and positive a way as possible.  This does not mean that the staff is expected to tolerate disrespectful attitudes or behavior from any student.  It is important for children to know that they are loved, but they must also understand that they are responsible for their actions.  They must be willing to accept the consequences of their behavior.  It is hoped that parents share similar views and will cooperate with the disciplinary measures of the administration and staff as promulgated in this handbook.  It is only when there is cooperation between the school and the parent that good behavior patterns are able to be developed.

Exclusion from school is considered very serious.  It is employed by the principal with consultation with the pastor only for serious infractions of school regulations.  Probation is a consequence of suspension. If this is violated, a student may lose his/her privilege to remain in the school.

Parents will be informed of any serious discipline problems by the grade or subject teacher either by phone, email or by a mailed conduct referral form.  All conduct referrals should be signed by a parent and must be returned to the teacher involved.  Three conduct referrals within one trimester will result in a parent conference with the administration and possible suspension.  More than two suspensions may result in dismissal. 

The administration reserves the right to dismiss, at any time, any student who by their behavior or academic work demonstrates a continued inability to meet the expectations associated with membership in our school.

Saint Anne’s code of conduct consequences are based on the tenets of Reflection (student understanding his/her action(s)), Repentance (student demonstrating sorrow for his/ her action(s)) and Reconciliation (student being involved in the healing and accountability process).
