Summer Cool School
Edmonton Public Schools, through Metro Continuing Education, continues to offer exciting summer school programming. Summer Cool School will offer a variety of academic and enrichment esperiences for students from grade 7 through grade 9. The programming will run during the first three weeks os July. Summer Cool School is the prefect way for students to stay busy in a safe, educational, and enjoyable environment.
Bikes, Skateboards, Roller Blades, etc.
Students are welcome to ride their bicycles, scooters, rollerblades and skateboards to school. However the safety of all students is a priority. We expect students to wear a helmet to prevent injury, dismount to enter school grounds, and ensure their personal items are locked up at the bike racks or locked in their lockers as the school is not responsible for lost, stolen, or misplaced items.
Bullying Prevention Toolkit
Edmonton Public Schools has published a toolkit for understanding, preventing, and resloving bullying issues. Click here for the document: Bullying Prevention
Just a reminder re: student dress code as the temperature warms in May and June. We expect all students to dress for appropriately and keep the focus on academic success as we prepare for exams. As per our handbook:
Students must be dressed appropriately at school.
Students are expected to:
- arrive to school clean – personal body odour is a concern for teenagers and a concern in the classroom.
- refrain from wearing distracting, revealing clothing that would make staff or students uncomfortable, including messages that are profane, alcohol/drug related or violent – tops and pants should meet, and undergarments should not be seen.
- remove caps, visors, hats or bandannas.
- change clothing if dressed inappropriately – parents will be informed if this issue persists.
- refrain from using strong perfumes or colognes as we are a scent sensitive environment.
