Students at Bellerose Composite High School are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is in keeping with the qualities of good citizenship. The behavioural expectations are consistent with the responsibilities stated in the School Act, Section 12:

“A student shall conduct himself so as to reasonably comply with the following code of conduct:
a. Be diligent in pursuing his studies
b. Attend school regularly and punctually
c. Cooperate fully with everyone authorized by the board to provide educational programs and other services
d. Comply with the rules of the school
e. Account to his teachers for his conduct; and
f. Respect the rights of others.

Consequences for failure to meet the requirements of the code of student behaviour and conduct may result in disciplinary action that may include suspensions and recommendations for expulsion from the school and/or district.”

Alcohol, Tobacco & Controlled Substances

Any student who is in possession of, or under the influence of any illegal substance, marijuana, alcohol, or inhalants (vaporizers, including e-cigarettes) on school property, or during school-sponsored activities, may face suspension and/or expulsion as outlined in the Drug Free Protocol for St. Albert Schools and the Code of Conduct for St. Albert Public Schools. Students are reminded that all vaporizers (including e-cigarettes) are prohibited on school property. Anyone using a vaporizer (including e-cigarette) on school property will have the device confiscated and that student may be suspended from school. The Drug Free Protocol for St. Albert Schools provides that unannounced patrols by RCMP personnel and a canine member be conducted in cooperation with school administration.

Cameras

We value and respect personal privacy. Cameras of all types (cell phones, etc.) are to be used only as directed by a staff member.

Froshing (Abduction & Assault)

In cooperation with and in conjunction with students of St. Albert schools, parents, the community, the trustees from the two St. Albert school districts, the RCMP and the City of St. Albert, we subscribe to the Safe and Caring Schools Initiative and we will not tolerate any participation in froshing activities. Consequences will include immediate suspension for a period up to five school days and may include the exclusion of a student from extracurricular activities, expulsion from school or school district, and criminal charges.


Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy (FOIP)

Privacy of student information and identification is in place at Bellerose. Parents requesting any information about their child will be asked to provide the five-digit school identification number given to the student at registration and found on student timetables and reports. If applicable, we also request that a copy of any court order denying access be given to the school. FOIP information is included in the course selection packages issued in spring. Any concerns or questions should be directed to the principal.


LGBTQ “Safe Contacts” 

At BCHS, we have designated staff members who are happy to support sexual and gender minority students and families, who include (but are not limited to the following): Lindsay Bracken, Jason Dabbagh, Jessica Gray, Mike Larocque, Jyoti Mangat, Dawn Rothwell and Judy Smallwood.


Safe & Caring Schools Initiatives

The St. Albert Public School District maintains a district wide Safe and Caring Schools Initiative in an attempt to make schools safe places for all involved. Within this district partnership Bellerose Composite High School adheres to the commitment of zero tolerance for violence. In most circumstances, consequences for verbal and physical violence will result in suspension.
