Student Life


As the use of technology in education becomes more prevalent, the effective use of electronic devices in classrooms will be closely monitored by teachers. Classroom use of such devices will be at the discretion of the teacher. Should a cell phone or electronic device be brought to the Vice-Principal’s office, it may be picked up at the end of the instructional day. Upon a second infraction, a parent may be required to retrieve the item.  


A friendly reminder that all online communication is expected to be respectful and appropriate. At BHNCDSB we encourage staff, students and parents to T.H.I.N.K. Before you post/tweet/reply ask yourself: Is it TRUE? Is it HURTFUL? Is it ILLEGAL? Is it NECESSARY? Is it KIND?  

Online activity that is not in support of the Board’s policies, procedures and appropriate online etiquette will be addressed by the school administrator. You may also be asked to take a conversation ‘offline’ if the content is not appropriate in a public forum.
