Code Of Conduct


Members of the St. Nicholas community are committed to the TCDSB's mission of providing a safe and welcoming learning environment that supports academic excellence. We recognize the importance of progressive discipline which focuses on prevention and early intervention as the key to maintaining a positive school environment. We recognize that all people are created in the image and likeness of God and, as such, deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and fairness. We will not tolerate behaviour that jeopardizes the emotional well-being or physical safety of members of the school community.


Students must demonstrate respect for themselves, for others and for the responsibilities of citizenship through acceptable behaviour. These are demonstrated when a student:
* comes to school prepared, on time, in uniform and ready to learn;
* follows the established classroom and school rules;
* is courteous to fellow students, staff members and visitors to the school;
* is co-operative and obedient with people in positions of authority;
* shows respect for school property and the property of others

Parents and Guardians 

Parents and guardians have a responsibility to support the efforts of school staff in maintaining a safe and respectful learning environment for all students. Parents and guardians fulfill this responsibility when they:
* show an active interest in their child's school work and progress;
* help their child be neat, appropriately dressed and preared for school;
* ensure that their child attends school regularly and on time;
* promply report to the school their child's absence or late arrival;
* become familiar with both the Provincial Code of Conduct and their local school code of conduct;
* encourage and assist their child in following the rules and behaviour;
* assist school staff in dealing with disciplinary issues

School Staff


Staff members are expected to uphold the highest standards of respectful and responsible behaviour. Staff members do so when they:


* help students work to their full potential and develop their self-worth;

* communicate regularly and meaningfully with parents;

* maintain consistent standards of behaviour for all students;

* demonstrate respect for all students, staff and parents;

* empower students to be positive leaders in the classroom, school and community
